A few months ago I fell in love with a floral ring from Moissaniteco.com. In the picture, it looks so dainty and I thought it would be so pretty with my simple solitaire. I enquired the dimensions, and they told me it is 5 mm thick on the top (and 3.7 on the underside of the hand.)
Will this overpower my 2 mm solitaire? I am planning on mixing it up and wearing my wedding ring with the engagement ring, and other times on separate hands. I usually pick dainty jewelry, but I am so in love with this floral ring. I have very long thin fingers, so this may help me pull off this look. I have my heart set on Moissanite, so this really limits my wedding ring options.
Here are some pics. Tell me what you honestly think.

Is there any way you can try the ring on with your band? I think it’ll be ok though!

IMO I don’t think it goes with your ring at all…it’s more of a right hand ring.

I LOVE that band. I really wanted a similar band, but my e-ring is fairly thick, so I went with a more delicate one. Also, I’ve got squatty fingers, but that’s neither here nor there. My main thought is that your e-ring band looks rather skinny on your hand, so I think you can probably pull it off. If you can go somewhere and try it on, that would be the absolute best option. Second best option would be to check on their return policy, and then order it just to check it out with your band.
Basically, I love that band, and your e-ring looks like the right mixture between simplicity and detail to match it. Go for it!
ETA: All that said, 7mm is really thick, so even if you can’t see that actual ring before buying it, at least try on another 5mm ring with your e-ring to see if you even like how it feels. It may be uncomfortable.

First, there is no law that states your rings must match. Second, if this floral ring is something you’ll wear all the time (think about that…what are all the things you’ll do with your hands?) and can see yourself doing it with that ring on, then fine. If you, however, are like me (hmmmmm….what kind of trouble I can I get into today?), then perhaps something more subtle is appropriate, and that ring can be worn at other times or at times when you won’t be scrubbing the floor or re-finishing a piece of furniture. What am I suggesting? A plain, white gold band for everyday, and….AND that ring.
See? I knew there was some trouble I could get into! I only say that because I’m considering being a two-ring bride…..maybe we should start a discussion thread!

I think you’ll probably need to try it on with your ring to see how it goes. I definitely don’t think 5mm would be too wide for a 2mm band, but you’d really have to see them together to know for sure.

I think there are a lot of floral bands out there that are thinner? I love the look but 7mm seems overwhelming. The other option is you could wear one ring on one hand an one on the other?

I’ll probably mostly wear the rings on separate hands if I went with this ring. It’s so pretty, but I wish I could find something similiar but around 3 mm. Because I want to go with palladium and moissanite (to match my engagement ring,) this really limits my options. The only thing I can think of is to go to a jeweler and have one custom made, order moissanite stones and have them put in. My city has a few independent jewelers, but none that have really worked with moissanite and palladium.
I agree that one option is to order it and try it out, then return it. I am horrified it would get lost in the mail.
The only other option would be to contact a jeweler online and have them design it, but once custom designing is involved, doesn’t it get pretty expensive?
Does any one have any pics of 5 mm bands on their hand?
Thanks for all your opinions 🙂 Keep em coming.

I actually LOVE thick wedding bands with thin e-rings, as well as mis-matched sets, so I think they would be beautiful worn together!

Update: I just emailed the jeweler and asked if they could send me a photo of this on a hand, and I also asked if they could possibly create a similiar ring around 3 mm. Let’s cross our fingers.

FWIW, I plan on having a 2.5mm e-ring, a 4mm wedding band, AND a (thin) anniversary band. I have very small fingers. (ring size is a whopping 3.5!)

No one in my family wears their engagement ring and wedding band as a set. My mom, aunts, everyone all wear their wedding band on their left and their engagement ring on another finger, which is what I plan to do. Unless you really want to wear both rings on the same finger I don’t see a problem with that ring at all (I don’t see a problem even if you do want to wear them on the same finger but this is just another option!)

ecorachel- Yes! I agree. I keep trying on bands with my solitaire and I find it uncomfortable. I love the look of a ring on each hand. I’ll probably end up ordering my beloved floral ring and wear it on a separate hand 🙂

I love, love, love that band!!! You have to get it! IMO, it would look best on its own. =]

Ok, first your band does not have to match your ERing. I find matchy sets so boring and so not unique. Also, 7mm is NOT overwhelming. I have a 5mm ER and a 2mm wedding band, no they do not match, and I have size 5 fingers. It sounds in the head overwhelming, but I assure you there are bees on here with much larger sets, such as 3 ring girls, and they are perfectly fine. I will try to post a pic, hope it works! PS, this is not a great picture but all I have.
