The details on that ring are amazing, but I don’t like them together.  could you switch your ering to your right hand and wear the band by itself?

@abirdword:  Too much.  Both lovely rings, but together they look messy, overpowering.  I’d wear one on either hand,, and maybe find a narrower wedding band to go with your Engagement Ring.

Its very pretty, but it almost looks uncomfortable. Can you bend your finger comfortably with both on?

They are both gorgeous separetely, but that band makes your e-ring look almost invisible!

I have to agree with PP. Separately they are both beautiful but together…too much. I am a fan of mismatched sets but those two don’t really look intentional together if that makes sense.

I love both rings, but not together.  The band takes up most of your finger space (it looks like your engagement ring is right at your knuckle) and just overpowers everything.  If you want to use it as your wedding band, have you thought about moving your engagement ring to your right hand?  Or wearing the band on your right hand, and getting an insert type ring as your wedding band…the kind where you slide your engagement ring into it and it looks like a band on either side?  It would make it look a lot thicker, and then at times when you don’t want to wear your engagement ring you could use the thick band as a stand-in?

I don’t like them together.  Individually they are both exquisite

I agree with everyone who has said both are beautiful…but not together. I find that together, they are both distracting from the beauty of the other.

I would either switch the ER to the RH and just wear the band, or find some other wedding band to wear with the ER. Or maybe even some vintage or vintage replica stackers…I am a big fan of stackers with my ER & WB and have about 6 on rotation (in addition to my wedding band). I also love the mismatched look as my ER and WD are more “modern” and my stackers are more “organic/handmade” (indeed, they are also mixed metals so I like the mismatched mixed metal look!).

You can get some very pretty thin vintage (or vintage replica) stackers with milgrain and engraving that you could stack to make a “wide” band, if you wanted that look, with the option of wearing less of them some days. You can even add more over the years as anniversary or birthday gifts (yay!).
