    It’s gorgeous imo with the vine/leaf band!! Plus it’s unique.

    I love that wedding band with your e ring. It’s unique, beautiful and echoes the theme of your band. I have a few questions. Will you always wear your e ring with the band or do you plan on wearing the band alone at times?

    I have a RHR that is open in the middle like that and I have found that things get snagged in it at times like plastic bags, and my hair. When the ring twists off to the side it feels odd so I have to re adjust here and there. I don’t think you will have any issues with it worn with your e ring but it may present some minor annoyances if worn alone.

    I love it! Would look pretty on its own too, which to me is important for a wedding band. I’d keep it!

    I love it. It’s weird because I usually perfer skinny bands, however it’s unique and the stone actually still pops. Your stone is actually prettier than the model stone. My only reservations are the proportions in the picture are perfect and i would want to see it with your actual e-ring and on your hand to definitively say yes.  Love how it looks in the pic but if your ring is up to a half of a carat less, would it be overpowering? that is my only reservation. I’d ask if they could send you pictures next to a ring with your stones measurements, even if not the same style e-ring. Otherwise, I say get it and a second simpler band. Also, I’m not sure about the channel set band in the second picture. I think it’s a little wide and would go thinner on that band. But that’s my own personal taste.

    The leaf band is beautiful.  I’m loving the vintage vibe.  I would think that it might catch on things from time to time but I imagine how much depends on your lifestyle.  I definitely wouldn’t work out in that ring.  I have a second wedding band because my eternity band isn’t always practical.  It was a good solution for me, but I did have to give up on the idea of having one ring I could wear all the time.

    I think if the construction is sturdy enough it should be okay! You might want to take it off if you’re moving furniture or something just to be on the safe side but if I were you, I’d get it hands down, it’s incredible.

    I favor practicality. The ring is cool looking, but I’d worry about things getting caught on the leaves or your skin geting pinched or something.

    I think it looks lovely but I believe a wedding band should be a complete circle – never ending. If that particular symbolism isn’t important to you then go for it, is beautiful.

    IMO you need a wedding band that you can wear for every activity. I would get a traditional straight band, and then use that to stack sometimes.
