evilangel3498                :  This is my ring. I ended up going with a very thin twisted band that sits flush with the band part of my ring and the flower part hangs over it. Basically, most of my wedding ring is obscured by the engagement ring, but the e-ring is so unique and eye-catching, I thought it was better not to overpower it. It looks like your cluster might sit high enough for a band to fit snug under it too. 

Otherwise, I’d look into one of those with a wide U shape in the middle that would surround your center.

evilangel3498 :  go try some on. Maybe a u-shaped or wishbone/chevron shaped ring. I don’t think you’ll know what works with it until you can see some things together.

I was panicked at looking at wedding rings because my engagement ring is a weird shape. I tried a wishbone ring and thought it was the best I was going to get, even though it didn’t sit flush. It turns out the gaps really bother me, I just don’t like them. I know many women on here love their gaps in rings but I just didn’t, or at least not with my engagement ring. I ended up buying the wishbone ring and wear it with a right hand ring sometimes and it has gaps then but I don’t mind those gaps. After a lot of going around in circles, I decided the best option for me was to go with a custom made ring.

So try some on and work out if you want it to sit flush or are happy with gaps. Give yourself plenty of time too. It took me ages to settle on a custom wedding ring because it’ was expensive for what it is.

I think you’d be really surprised what a curved band or wrap might do! Also, there’s a website (http://www.twobirch.com) that you can have customized bands or wraps made for uniquely shaped rings.

Honestly, I think a second ring might look clunky and really take away from the originality of your engagement ring. I’d get a plain band that I would wear on its own. 

I’m not sure if yours was originally an engagement ring, but the reason so many older engagement rings don’t have matching bands is that they were never intended to be worn with a band at the same time. So you could go old school and wear the wedding ring on your right hand.

I would go with a plain band in the same metal as your ring and same width of the ring’s band that sits flush to the ring. I would hate to take away from the beautiful ring that you have.

evilangel3498 :  I can’t wait to see it after a good cleaning! I also think you don’t need a wedding band to go with that one. Or you could wear it on the right hand and just a band on the other.

You could do something like this style of ring with a gap in a yellow gold. I’d go plain band in solid gold but you could incorporate diamonds and sapphires. You’d probably have to go custom though.

Pretty ring and your grandma would be tickled pink that you love her ring so much and will use it for something so symbolic!!
