The day after Christmas my AMAZING boyfriend totally surprised me with a very special proposal! I’m still on cloud 9! He proposed with an heirloom ring passed down in my family from the late 1800s. Yep….SUPER special!
So this is where I need your help. Because this ring is so special to me, I dont want a wedding band that overshadows the engagement ring; however, I want something special because the wedding band is actally the ring that my fiance will be purchasing, so its special as well. Any ideas on how to keep it balanced? When trying on rings I discovered that slightly curved rings fit best.
Here is a picture of one that I tried on. All opinions are welcome 🙂

Congratulations! What a gorgeous ring!
I would stick with a band that has minimal diamonds or maybe one with no diamonds at all. Keep trying them on – you’ll know when it looks perfect!
Your Fiance might want to consider engraving something on the inside of the wedding band to make it even more special.
are you in front of a castle??? Love the pic!

@GroovyHippieChick: Thanks for your ideas! It is actually the Biltmore estate in Asheville, NC. Its the largest home in the country. If you ever get a chance, you should tour it. Its beautiful.

Congrats and welcome! Love the ring and the special proposal!!!! Yes a curved one like the one you tried on would look great. You could also wear a ring that thick on its own, IMO, or on the right hand with a band on the left. I know a lot of bees are comfortable with this, but I personally would consider it. Good luck!!

Woohoo! Beautiful ring! The shape is very similar to mine and I had both of Cupcake’s thoughts. First, I only planned to have one ring. But Fiance really thought I should have a band, so the e-ring will be moving on over the the right hand once we’re married.
