I think your ring would look stunning with just about any band so you should pick what you like! Your Fiance doesn’t have to wear it everyday so his opinion is kind of moot lol. I would probably pair it with a plain rose gold band if it were mine.

I think a simple, thin, pave band would look lovely.

What about a plan metal band? That’s what I did, and I love the contrast, but I know not everyone likes it.

Get one that you love. I’ve known women who fell in love with a ring that was perfect and looked great with the Engagement Ring, only to second-guess and be discouraged by their FI’s input, and they have regretted not getting it.

I think a bigger diamond band would look great and that would be my choice too with your beautiful ering! It would match but at the same time give you contrast. As for taking away from the engagement ring, I disagree. I think it would just stand out as a separate but equally important ring, and it would also look good on its own. It might not be your fiance’s favorite choice but you have to wear these rings, not him. Good luck!

Lavender28 :  agreed, I like the contrast. Mine are opposite, plain ering and diamond band.

I’d go for a plain band. Then you could add a bigger diamond band as an anniversary ring one day with your wedding band keeping them from blending 🙂

My own feeling is not every ring is meant to be worn in a set.

I’d either do a plain thin band, move the ering to your right hand and get  a stand alone wedding band, or consider this to be a uniquely custom designed combination engagement and wedding ring. I agree with Fiance and personally think anything too big will detract.

brunettebride2018 :  maybe a thin channel set band, slightly curved? The channel set would prevent it from looking like it is a 2-band e ring.

Wow! The jeweller did a great job and that is a beautiful ring. I think a large diamond band will detract from the elegance and proportions of your ring. Do try a 2mm plain band, you might be surprised. I was. 

Otherwise maybe a slim channel set if you’re set on more diamonds. I think you need to be able to easily distinguish band and e-ring to appreciate the graduation and design of the latter.

Because of the graduated diamonds, I would either get a very thin pave band or wear your engagement ring as a combo engagement/wedding band. I prefer matching sets (but most ladies here don’t) so I would get a plain band for the days I don’t want to wear the engagement ring.
