get a custom made band with diamonds similar in quality to your engagement ring or just choose a plain band with no diamonds.

How about wearing your e-ring on your right hand, and your wedding banc on your left hand. I see that quite a bit.

Ditto to both of those responses. Or can you exchange the diamonds in the wedding band for diamonds similar in quality to your engagement ring? I think it would make a big difference.

I would not choose have the wedding band made with lower quality stones just to match unless you are 100% sure you will never upgrade your e-ring in the future.  For me, I cannot imagine replacing/upgrading my e-ring, and definately cannot imagine ever changing my (future) wedding band.  Those rings are what he proposed with and will put on my finger on our wedding day and are not to be replaced.  With that said, since you have mentioned wanting to upgrade your e-ring when more finances are right, I would make sure to get a wedding band that I loved no matter what to be my one and only band, since most people seem more ‘attached’ to their wedding ring than e-ring.  Then work on the e-ring later.  All depends on how attached you are to each.

You can always upgrade the stones on your e-ring later, to a higher color and clarity grade. I would buy the band you want, wear your e-ring on your right hand for now since it bothers you to see the differences side by side, then someday when you can afford to, replace the stones. I’m sure your guy would understand your wanting to do that at some point, if he looks at the set together and sees the difference himself.

Ooh this happened to me too! I always new that the centre stone in my e-ring was a bit cloudy and had an inclusion in it but I didn’t think it was a big deal – til I tried on channel set wedding bands with it! The bands were so sparkly and it became very apparent that my centre stone is not that sparkly in comparison. Luckily my centre stone isn’t that big (and I have a very laid back FI) cos I decided to have my stone upgraded to a clearer one. It’ll be much clearer and sparkier so it should be good – upgrading to a clearer stone only cost me $275 – well worth it to have nice sparkly rings! I love my e-ring so bad and I’m so excited to be getting bands to go with it!

same thing happened to me, my situation is a lil tougher though because my engagement ring and wedding band are soldered together.  I think I may take it to the jeweler to find out how much it would cost to upgrade my yellow tinted diamond to another one.  I don’t want to hurt my husband’s feelings at all, but at the same time the color difference bothers me a lot simply because the diamonds in my wedding band are so much whiter than my 1 carat solitaire

I’m not sure about the diamonds being yellow-ish, but I know white gold tends to get yellow-ish after being worn for a while. The jeweler can ‘dip’ your ring to bring it pristine white gold again. Ask your jewelry store for more details.

(I didn’t read through all the responses so sorry if I’m repeating something that was already said.)
