@Justbrynne: I love the plain wedding band look with a more intricate E-ring! C is my vote!

I agree with pp! Personally I think the oval halo and plain band is beautiful.

@Justbrynne: I have an oval halo, and tried on the 2 band look. While I’ve seen the look before (and it works well with their setting) I did not like it with mine. Since mine is a very fine halo, the 2 bands (one on either side) took away from the shape. I’d really suggest trying something similar on in person.
That being said, I actually really like the radiant. I’d do a pave band with it (similar to the first one, but not channel-set.)

- Wedding: March 2014 - A castle
@Justbrynne: I have pave stones on my band and I think I am leaning towards a plain WB, but to give it some more “oomph” probably with hand engraving. I think a plain hand engraved band would look nice with those rings as well, especially the oval as it seems more “antique” to me.

I have a brand new radiant solitaire as an upgrade. I decided, after seeing her in person, to leave her as a solitaire and let her glory reign supreme. I have ordered channel set princess cut eternity bands to flank her on either side and they complimented her sparkle nicely. I know halos are wildly popular but you might think about what type of setting allows that sparkle to stand out.

I’m partial to plain shank halos – I really like the oval one you posted. At one point I tried my ring on with a slim channel set band, and really liked the look (unfortunately I don’t have a picture). One thing about the settings you’re looking at – if they’re elevated halos, they do sit flush with a band, which is great, but they’re pretty tall.
I realize my ring’s not QUITE what you’re looking at, but it’s a plain shank halo. Here are a couple looks I tried to give you an idea:
2mm shared prong band:

B has my vote!! And I’d would choose the oval halo

I love the look of diamonds on the band of engagement ring and plain band. I pick C Oval. Then you have the best of both worlds- bling when you wear both, and totally relaxed if you wear your band alone.

I am a plain shank halo fan….I have one, so I’m biased. I prefer A or B, but I voted for B just because I think this ring is so pretty when worn by itself. I tried on rings similar to both A and B with my plain shank halo (though never a channel set, just a common prong) Here are some pics for reference 🙂
FYI – I still can’t decide what I want…I’m now leaning toward a plain platinum band. Too many beautiful options to choose from, my head is spinning!

I’m not world’s hugest fan of D because I don’t know that the channel setting matches the setting in the ring (down the side). I think it would look nicer if you just picked a wedding band set in the same way if that’s the route you want to take.

My e-ring is similar but a little more complicated than what you’re looking at… And it took me trying on quite a variety of bands to find one I felt went well with it.
A couple issues:
– the basket under the stone and halo sticks out close to the finger, which means unless I get a curved ring I have to rock the gap (which I like, but makes finding a match that looks right a little harder)
-the side profile is also a little bit higher on the top of the finger, which caused some bands to sit too low next to it and got lost
-for me, the width of the band had to be similar to the width of the ring, because otherwise one was stealing the other’s show
What I recommend is either buying a set, or holding off on picking a band until you can go try on bands and see what you really like next to your e-ring.
