I think a thinner diamond band, a plain gold band, or no band at all would look great. Your ring is beautiful and your Fiance might be a bit hurt if you asked to get a bigger center stone.

I actually think it looks really good the way you have it!  If you want your centre stone to stand out more, I also think a simple gold band would look really nice with your e-ring.  But it’s gorgeous with the band you have now – maybe just give yourself some more time to get used to seeing them together.

I usually dislike wedding band sets that are too thick/busy/blingy but I think that yours is really lovely! I think that the center stone stands out just fine. That being said, if it were me I would really struggle to choose between this band and a solid gold (possibly slightly thinner) band to make it really stand out. I can’t honestly say which I would choose though, it’s that pretty.

I’d get a thinner band to wear everyday, it seams alittle chunky. The band you have would look pretty by itself though or if you were dressing up.

I like it just the way it is… very classic.

I agree with Juliepants:  you might want to give it a bit more time… it will certainly grow on you once you are married and wear it all the time (you can always get yourself a plain band to make it a trio… wear them all together as 3, any 2 together, or just 1… lots of options then)

Hope this helps,

PS… If Hubby-2-B bought these as a true Bridal Set, he could be in a situation where the store won’t take back the W-Band without the E-Ring… seems sad, and could really hurt his feelings.  Another good reason, just to look at getting a plain W-Band and stacking them as you see fit (plain bands are also usually quite inexpensive).  And a plain band gives you options when there are times you don’t want to be rocking a lot of bling… Gardening, Deep Cleaning, Household Repairs, The Beach, or Travelling to some Destinations (so very practical as well)

@Happy7:  Coming from someone who changes their mind a lot I’m going to say if you don’t love your rings now that’s a problem. I’m a super sentimental person and if my husband ever chose a ring for me I would never change it but I would make sure I loved the way the band looked with it from the beginning. In my experience I’ve never “grown” to love a ring, I’ve always had to love it from the beginning. That’s just me though and it could be different for you? I would suggest maybe trying a plain gold band next to your ring and maybe seeing which one you like most? I’m partial to a blingy ring with a plain band Smile

I wouldnt ask for a bigger center stone. I would go with a thinner band.

I personally think it is gorgeous the way that it is, but you have to love it and you have to wear it every day! If anything, I would upgrade the center stone to a bigger size, and definately to a much brighter color so it stands out much more from the rest of the stones. Good Luck!

Just get a bigger center stone. He wants to upgrade…let him. Trust me, once you pop a bigger stone in there, you will love it. The problem right now, is that the gold is competing with the diamond. That will no longer be a problem with a bigger stone.
