    I don’t have pics, but I plan on getting a wedding band with the same thickness.

    @arielmerms:  As always, my vote is Other. My whole engagement ring is FMIL’s wedding set soldered together (E-ring and band). MY Engagement Ring is the same width as MY wedding band, but the actual Engagement Ring and the original band are each half as thick as my new band. In short, yes and no, it’s thicker. Depends on how you look at it.

    My ering at its widest point is 3mm and my wedding band is 3mm but my ering is thinner in the back than my wedding band.

    @arielmerms:  I think Blue Nile has better service because they don’t spam the heck out of you afterwards.  Unfortunately, adiamor kept sending me emails asking how my service was, which I filled out once and kept getting again.  Additionally, I thought it was weird that I recieved a phone call from Adiamor confirming my order when Blue Nile just sent it along.  Adiamor shipped out faster than Blue Nile did because their processing was faster, but Blue Nile has free overnight shipping I believe.  Honestly, if it’s cheaper to go with Blue Nile, I’d stay with them.  If something happens to your rings, then you only have to go through Blue Nile for replacement/repair.

    My WBand (well actually BOTH of them) faces up smaller than my ERing

    As I am an Encore Bride, I wanted my ERing to be vastly different than the ERing I had the first time round (1980s interlocking Bridal Set with a Solitaire ERing)

    This time round…

    My ERing is very much more of a “cocktail ring” type setting

    My ERing faces up approx 10 mm (4 mm on the underside)

    My 2 WBands each in the 2.5 to 3 mm range

    So my ERing is considerably wider than my WBand(s)

    I am lucky to have 3 Rings… ERing and 2 WBands… 1 Sparkly and 1 Plain… I mix n match then as I like, wearing 1, 2, or 3 Rings at a time… and like to stack them too for a different look

    Here are some photos….

    PHOTO # 1 – All 3 Rings stacked together on my Wedding Day

    PHOTO # 2 – Sparklies worn together

    PHOTO # 3 – Both the WBands worn together

    Hope this helps,

    I had my contour band custom-made to be the same width. It was super important that they have the same horizontal width as well so one didn’t stick out further than the other. I am adding a second band in rose gold, and I wanted that one to be thinner, as I want it to be a rose accent. 

    In general, if the rings are flush, I usually love when there is a difference in widths between e-ring and w-band. Whether it’s thinner or wider. Since my rings had a gap, and one was plain while the other had diamonds, I wanted some cohesion between the two and wanted matching widths.
