    I don’t have a picture to show you, but why don’t you get both? You could wear the one you love most of the time, or all three… Mix and match depending on your mood! That way you can change your mind based on what you love that day 🙂

    I love (and have) non-matching rings. However, what bothers me about the set you’re trying to pair is that I don’t like the fact that the diamonds do not extend all the way across the top of the band.

    Below is my set (my e-ring and wedding band are the top two rings; my thin anniversary band is at the bottom of the stack.) I deliberately made sure that the diamonds in my one-carat, seven stone wedding band extended across the same amount of my finger as did the diamonds in my e-ring.

    Perhaps you could find a band where the diamonds have more coverage across the top of the ring.

    I like them both but I think the major missing detail is not having any engraving on either wedding band.  

    If you still want the mis-matched look maybe go for engraving different from your e-ring or even just a simple milgrain along the edges of an otherwise mostly plain band.

    If you decide to not go with the mismatched look but still want the diamonds, I would go with something like these…smaller stones but longer across the band.

    At the end of the day though…if you love the original band, then that’s the one you should get regardless of what anyone says.

    I’m not crazy about the 5 stone rign you are looking at only because the stones don’t extend down the shank further. I do LOVE mismatched sets though.

    Perhaps you could do a traditional pave ring? Or one like the band in this video:

    for sure get what YOU like! I like the diamond band, however, I feel your e-ring covers it up too much..but once again…if you love it, that’s all that matters!

    Personally I would get a hand-engraved band or an antique engaged band. 

    Also, I just wanted to let you know that your e-ring is gorgeous!  Definitely one of my favorites.

    @dancingfox:  I can’t post without saying again how much I LOVE your ring.  It’s exactly what I’m getting except I don’t have the pretty floral/scrollwork design you have.  IF you are totally in love with the 5-stone ring, then forget what everyone else thinks, and go for it!  At the end of the day, we all need to love what we’ve got regardless of others’ opinions.  IF you are really doubting it, then my recommendation would be to get a custom band made (from the same jewler that made your ring) with the floral/scrollwork design all the way around the ring.  It would end up looking something like this.  OR I would get a plain channel set band, but I think I already linked a few like that on your last post.

    @LTD418:  I think that middle one you posted would go perfectly!

    Who cares what anyone thinks but you? You’re the one who will be wearing it the rest of your life. Personally, I like the mismatched look of those two together. I do agree that it might look better if the stones went all the way across. But then again, it might not! And like I said, if you like it, who cares? I doubt anyone in person is going to look at your beautiful rings and say, “Why would you ever put those together?!” 🙂
