I think it over powers it in every way possible….sorry to not be more positive!

I have to agree with RingPup.  Perhaps if you found something with smaller diamonds it wouldn’t.  🙁

I’ve gotta agree… it’s a pretty substantial ring next to a more delicate, intricate ring.  Both are lovely but the band is quite over-powering the heirloom.

I like the ring you found, but I think they’d look best on separate hands. Otherwise, if you do want to wear them together, I do think it’s a bit strong for the heirloom ring. :-/ Sorry.

I have to agree that it seems to overpower your heirloom ring.  The eRing is so delicate that I am sure you are struggling to find the perfect match.  If you aren’t 100% in love with the combo, I would keep looking.

Honestly I would just put a plain band with it.  I think plain bands are really simple and classic!

I like the idea of wearing your e-ring on your other hand and getting a wedding band that you really love.  Best of both worlds!

Have you looked at getting an antique band to match better? Possibly look at antique shops/ pawn shops. You may be surprised at what you can find.

Congrats on being gifted great-grandma’s ring.  I love vintage rings and yours is gorgeous.  Honestly, I would just go with a very thin, plain, white gold wedding band with it.  I love the floral detail on the sides and feel anything more than a plain band takes away from it’s antique beauty.

I was also going to suggest finding an antique ring to match.  My husband gave me his grandmother’s engagement ring, but also her wedding band.  The band and the ring actually weren’t sold as a pair from the same collection, but within that style I think they go well together.
