This is my custom ring made with a topaz we found on my daughter’s first camping trip. I’m struggling to figure out what band to go with it. The simple choice would be a plain rose gold one but that seems boring. Any suggestions?
Also a Side view from the jeweler for reference:

Alright, I’m going to start by saying that ring is freaking gorgeous and I cannot believe you found that stone. Unbelievable!
Since your e ring is so fancy, I think a plain rose gold band would be absolutely perfect. It would give the stone a thicker base and you could easily wear a plain wedding ring by its self if you so choose. A plain band is so classic and elegant, I think it would be prefect with your e ring.

Also, where the heck were you camping so I can take a trip there?! Haha!

lovemygsp : Oh my goodness! I have to chime in and say how gorgeous your ring is! It is stunning! I love the color of your topaz, as well as the setting. And the rose gold — so perfect!
I think a plain rose gold band would be beautiful with your ring. It is a simple and, in some ways, an “easy” choice. I don’t think it would be boring, because it would give a nice contrast of rose gold metal next to your white (diamonds? sapphires?) side stones and that gorgeously rich blue center stone. Or, perhaps, a band engraved with some type of design — that way, you could have a “plain but not too plain” look.
For a bit more “bling”, what about trying a band that matches the style of your side stones? You could do a half eternity in the same white stones set in rose gold. Or, maybe you could do a band in the same style of setting as your side stones but using topazes that match your center stone in color/depth. Or alternate white and blue stones … ??

OMG! That stone is so pretty!! And I think a rose gold band would really enhance the stone really well.

lovemygsp : I would just go with a plain wedding band so you don’t take away from the stone. 😍

Thanks so much for the help everyone! I’ve always found plain bands to be boring but I’ve also never had such a stunning engagement ring to off set it ha. Thank you for the reassurance that plain isn’t boring in this case! 🙂
