    the round diamonds, but just one band.

    If you want big bling with it, I would do a shared prong like this with larger stones.  Bands on either side looks like it is suffocatiing you e-ring to me.

    I find the two large bands with baguettes takes away from you beautifl 3-stone e-ring. I know some like the symmetry of two bands but I think that in your case, one band would look amazing! I would do round stones with prongs.

    GORGEOUS ERing !!

    When I saw your first pic (Reply # 6), I immediately thought of my own ERing, because the general feel is so similar

    PHOTO – Close up of my ERing taken the day we picked it up (it is a custom design from a family Jewellery Store)

    And as much as I love Baguette Diamonds, I do find they are a special sort of thing that doesn’t match up with everything, so one has to be quite selective with them and if the setting they are in shows them off at their best.

    They are in the middle row of my ERing alternating with Rounds (I like it because it sort of gives my ring a bit of “texture”)

    When it came time to look for a WBand, because my ERing was custom, there was no natural match.  My original idea was a Baguette band, or one that alternated like my middle row.

    In the end, I went with a 1/2 CTW (.55) Band that has 10 Diamonds, and matches pretty closely the outer rows on my ERing… we found it / bought it from an large International Chain Jewellery Store (Peoples / Zales)

    As well, I knew I wanted a plain band for those times when I couldn’t wear my “sparklers” for their (or my) safety… Home Renovating – Painting – Deep Cleaning – Gardening – Scuba Diving / Snorkelling – Travelling to 3rd World Countries on vacation etc

    The plain band is an exact match to my sparkly band, and also somes from Peoples / Zales.

    When we were married, the plain band served as the WBand for Mr TTR (who didn’t want a ring… he doesn’t wear Jewellery)… sized for me… therefore, it only got on as far as his knuckle in the ceremony, lol … and the sparkly one, was the one he  placed on my finger (I like this because essentially both WBands were blessed in our Ceremony… so they both are true WBands, no matter the fact that I am the one who wears them).

    Sometimes I wear all 3 together, sometimes I mix and match them as I see fit… 1, 2, 3, rings… the choice is mine.  Alone or stacked.  I LOVE all the options.

    Here then a PHOTO from our Wedding Day, of my wearing all 3 on my Wedding Finger.  In this case the two WBands closest to my heart… but I am just as likely to wear one on each side.  (My current fave for my Wedding Finger is to create “a diamond set” and wear the plain band on another finger)

    In your case, you might want to do something similar… in that out of all the WBands you’ve posted my faves would be shaped one with the Rounds in Reply # 13, and the two options you’ve shown in Reply # 30 (sparkly and plain).

    In the end, I think I made the right choice… so many great options… and the Big BONUS is I never have to be without a WBand, no matter what I might be doing (and that was an important consideration for me)

    Hope this helps,

    Beautiful ring!!! But I think both bands are too much and takes away from the ring. Something simple will compliment your ring!
