inlovewithlibra:  If you use this ring as your e-ring, what style of wedding band will you be wearing?  I understand that you use your hand alot however; you can wear a traditional e-ring on the days that you aren’t working and when you are out socializing.  Your choice of ring is stunning for a wedding band.

inlovewithlibra:  I think it’s lovely, and I love all the symbolism related to it. The only person who has to love it is you!

I think it would look great with an eternity band, but you could also pair it with something that looks more like an engagement ring, like maybe a bezel that won’t get in your way when you’re using your hands.

Maybe you can use that as your wedding band and get another ring that looks more traditionally “engagement ring” like? 

This ring looks quite wide, so perhaps wear it on the right hand?

First of all I LOVE this ring!! My e-ring is a black diamond too!! Recently my friend said my ring looked like a grandma’s ring and not an e-ring but I don’t care because I love my ring.  As long asyou love it,  who cares what someone else thinks??  Here is mine

My mom’s wedding ring is a thicker band and that’s it.  And she sometimes pairs it now (30 years later) with my grandmothers dainty 3 stone engagment ring. Honestly, I LOVE the idea of wearing one thick ring, and maybe stacking it with an eternity band or, like others said, you could get a simple solitare to pair it with. But only do that if you want. There is absolutely nothing wrong with having your engagement ring be a band. I think it’s gorgeous. Do what your heart wants.

inlovewithlibra:  Can i just say My Darling Husband and I HATE chain stores. If you want a nice ring go to a small local jeweler. I have had so many issues with chain stores.

BUT if you want this ring I would pair it with a weding band that bends inward where the outside of that rings does.

Any ring given to you as a promise to marry is an engagement ring.  It doesn’t matter if it’s a diamond, gemstone, or stoneless.  There’s no rule about the style looking like a solitaire, three stone, or halo.  If you love it, you should go for it.  My engagement ring is a band also.  Does it scream engagement ring?  No.  Do I love it? Absolutely.  Have I ever regretted it?  Never.  I wanted something unique, and it’s a reflection of me.

OP, please find a local jeweler to customize a ring for you within your budget. You can get a jeweler to design a ring EXACTLY like that for less and chances are it’ll be better quality. Apart from that the ring is gorgeous and I love it. I love unconventional e-rings.

oliviakatherine:  Well fortunately, this is not about you or your Darling Husband.  (My ring is from Kay. The horror.)

I think it would be great as a single purpose ring: both engagement and wedding. I had a few friends who went that route – more unique, artistic types – and I’ve always admired their rings. And the flatter surface means you wouldn’t have to keep switching it out.

that ring is beautiful and from the way you are describing it, it sounds like you love it too! you are just being swayed by the opinions of others. If its the one you truely love then go for it, there is no right or wrong style for an angagement ring. you could have something custom made to go with it as a wedding band, wear it on your right hand or use it again for the wedding, its entirely up to you!

I think it’s beautiful, and just because it’s non-traditional, doesn’t mean it can’t be your engagement ring. 

That said, you can always use it as your wedding band later and get a more traditional ering to wear now. You can also use the ring you bought as a right hand ring.

Personally, I think that if you went and looked at rings, and picked this one out, you did so for a reason and only you and your Fiance have to love it!

inlovewithlibra:  Honestly, this doesnt look like an engagement ring – BUT I think an engagement ring can be anything you want it to be! I think this looks more like a wedding band. Could you use this as your wedding band and find something else for an engagement ring? I agree with previous posters that if you love it, don’t worry about what other people think!
