    I’m sorry, but I just dont think either of them are very well suited to your e-ring. The first one is too big and has too much going on, it just distracts from the e-ring. The second one is too thick for my taste, and I’m just not fond of plain gold bands.

    I’d get a thinner wedding band than either of the ones you’ve pictured.  Could be plain gold, or have some diamonds in the band.  But I think the biggest problem with both bands is that they’re too wide and they’re overwhelming the beauty of your engagement ring.  A thinner band that was a similar width  to your engagement ring would suit it best.

    I think the first ring tha @HulaGirl1977 posted would look amazing!

    I agree with everyone else. They’re both too wide and the first too much to suit the engagement ring. Unfortunately, I don’t have a different suggestion to make up for my negative comments. :-/

    I agree both rings are too thick looking but if those were the only choices, I would go with the first one. It would be easy to wear it alone when you don’t feel like wearing your e-ring.

    My vote is for the 3rd ring hulagirl1977 posted, the swirl

    Sadly I have to agree with the PPs that both of those rings seem to not work quite as well as something else might.

    Something like this plain-ish domed ring might work:


    Or this rolling ring with blue sapphires if you have your heart set on mixing metals:


    Or an eternity ring with blue sapphires and diamonds would look divine!



    It might be a good idea to go visit a local store and see how some other rings look in person.  Take some pics with your phone and then you can post pics for us and a poll if you’d like.  Good luck 🙂

    I think the first one is way too much for your e-ring (it over-shadows it) and the second one is to thick.

    I really like the rings HulaGirl1977 posted.  I think that would be a better style to go with your e-ring.

    Unfortunately neither work very well – they just look bulky and mismatched. I really love the idea of the saphire eternity band, it would look fabulous

    I’d either go with a slimmer (1.5-2mm) plain white gold band, or a diamond/diamond sapphire combo chevron-shaped ring to match.

    Since I’m not familiar with which stores you have in NZ, I’ll just post some examples of what I mean:

    I think a plain, thin, white gold band would be the best option here. I also like the sapphire and diamond band that someone else suggested, as well.
