I think all three look great together, but there is a lot going on.  It would be too much for me personally, but I have seen some fabulous (and somewhat similar) sets floating around the hive.

I did think my band and e-ring looked weird together for a while.  Now I love how they look together, it just took some getting used to.

Good luck!

What if you just wore one of the rings instead of the two? The on the bottom of the engagement ring? Although I am not engaged yet this is what Teddy and I were looking at…

Your engagement ring is beautiful, as are your bands.  Looking at the pictures, I don’t think the three rings together are too large for your fingers.  I think it will take some getting used to wearing a thicker ring, but if it looks the way you want it to, go for it.  If you’re not happy with the look, consider going another route.  You’re going to be wearing the ring every day. 🙂  

My engagement ring was also designed as a stand-alone, and I’m still deciding what to do.  At this point, I’m leaning towards getting a very simple wedding band and wearing it on days that I’m doing outdoorsy things, heavy duty cleaning/gardening, or other activities that my engagement ring my get lost doing.  On most days, I’ll probably just wear my engagement ring.  

The other option I’m considering is wearing one on my left hand and one on my right, but I’m not that into wearing jewelry.

I agree with just the band on the bottom. It seems pretty large with the 3 stone ering and all the little diamonds.

I think it would look best if you just wore one of the bands on the bottom of your engagement ring. I dont know when the trend of 2 wedding bands started or enhancers rather, but I think the single band is a much sleeker look. I do think that the 3 bands together is a little much for your finger. I have really long fingers and I think that would even be too much for me.

I have a three stone engagement ring too and I just have one band underneath it.

I think part of the problem is the big channel setting of the wedding bands too—all that extra metal is taking up a lot of room.  I bet if you got a single band without such a large channel setting (or possibly just a pave setting) you would be happier with the combined look.

But you’re right, both are beautiful!!! Love the Ering

Since you had them custome made why don’t yu just solder the bottom one to you e-ring (which beautiful by the way!!). I think all three rings look nice together, but I know what you mean about the thickness… If you just soldered the bottom one, it would gve you the option of wearing both when you wanted a bit more bling, and one one a day to day basis…

I agree with VirginiaMarie, those bands have a lot of extra metal, and they appear to be even wider (each of them) than the shank of your e-ring. They are a lovely channel setting, but I do think that with two of them combined with your ring, it’s a bit overpowering for your finger and I feel like your beautiful e-ring gets sort of lost in it. Also, even with the notches, the bands still aren’t sitting flush with your ring, and the gap makes the overall look even larger.

Is it too late to try to work something else out with your jeweler? You should love your wedding set, not worry that it doesn’t look right or isn’t your style. If it is too late, or a change is not in the budget, I second the idea of just wearing one.

Okay,  I guess I’m the only one but I like it!  I like the symmetrical look of the two wedding bands.  And they look great sitting so flush against your e-ring!  The good news is that you can choose to wear one band, two bands or just your e-ring!  I wouldn’t solder them together for that reason…

I also have a 3 stone princess cut ring and I have a channel set band that I wear with it sometimes.  I always think I would like a second channel set band to wear on the other side for the “symmetry” 🙂
