The band is beautiful!!! Wow! But honestly, it looks uncomfortable on your finger…

I would separate them or just wear it as a right hand ring.

Those are both amazing!  I agree with PPs, though.  But wow!

That band is BEAUTIFUL, like awesome!! (And so is your e-ring). But, I agree with the PPs, the two kind of overshadow one another.

it’s a beautiful ring but I’ve gotta be honest: the second I looked at the photo of them together I said “NO!” it really is too much for one finger. 

plus, if you are the type of person who wants to only have one wedding band for the rest of your life, you might be disappointed that you chose that ring to be the one. it looks so uncomfortable. would you be willing to wear that every single day for years and years? it looks like it would be better as a RHR that you can take off when you feel the need to. 

don’t get me wrong. that ring is STUNNING!  I just don’t think it’s the most sensible choice as a wedding band that you would wear every day. 

I like the idea that RayKay: had– get a milgrain band, or a few thin ones to stack. that would look really good.   if you wanted a wedding band that matches your e-ring perfectly, do a search for “milgrain shared prong channel set ring”. like this one:

I agree with others.  They are both beautiful but definitely wayyy too much to be worn together.

With 2 equally amazing rings like that I’d want to give them each their own stage. Maybe I’m biased cause I’m planning on wearing my wedding band on my right hand, but I’d totally separate them.

I have the same issue. I fell in love with a vintage style ring.

But it doesnt go with my e-ring

I’ve thought about wearing them separately, But my Fiance is not too happy with that idea. Kinda thought I was crazy too. He would perfer I get something like this.

Idk for some reason this just doesnt do it for me. So I’m still looking… But at least now I can show im this thread to prove I’m not crazy. LOL!

 

EEk So sorry this pics are so big!!! can’t figure out how make them smaller…

I love both of your rings but I think that the band overwhelms your engagement ring.

The designs together don’t bother me…it’s how high up the ring goes up on your hand that I don’t particularly like. I do like the idea of having that be your wedding band and wearing the engagement ring on your other hand. Or if you really want to wear your rings together, find something in a similar style but not quite as wide.

@Oo_mrsmay:  Although the band is drop dead gorgeous I think it takes away the spot light from your e-ring and if you don’t look hard enough you can’t even see it. Maybe something that would be more complimentary would be a better fit.

I love the band but I agree with the other PPS, they don’t look good together. I would wear the band as a right hand ring.
