It’s gorgeous! Maybe you can get a wedding band and wear the e-ring on your right hand after you get married?

I think it’s too pretty not to wear! And I think you could go see a jeweler and see what they could whip up for you. Maybe a thin line of metal going up to the cage setting.

I don’t think you NEED the wedding band though. It’s gorgeous as is, and personally, i could never not wear my engagement ring! It means just as much as my wedding rings =]

Beautiful ring!  You can probably get a thin band custom made to hug your ring (contured to accomodate the wide portion) or you could move your engagement ring to the other hand and just wear a band on your right hand.  (I believe that is a European custom)  I wear the band that matches Mr. DG’s on my right hand. 

I’m sure there are lots of creative ways to get around this and still have the band that you dream of!

I like the idea of getting a pretty wedding band, and then perhaps wearing your e-ring on your right hand…if you want to have the best of both worlds!

Could you just get a super-thin white gold band made to fit contour under the edge of your ring? Like in a 2mm or less?

Your ring is stunning… a custom band could be made, See a specialty jewler and explain your concerns… or as others suggest, a right hand e-ring leaves the options for a wedding band wide open!

Great ring! I would totally wear a wedding band with it! I love the wide, stacked ring look – I’m sure you can find something that would look great with it πŸ™‚  Don’t give up yet!

I think you could easily go to a custom jeweler and get them to fit a very skinny wedding band with small diamonds all around to your e-ring. You may not be able to wear it by itself but at least you would be able to still have a wedding band and wear your ering at the same time! Good luck your engagement ring is beautiful!

What a gorgeous ring!  I’d also look into getting a custom band made.  You can show the jeweler your e-ring and see if they can suggest something that would work well.  If that doesn’t work, you can always swtich your e-ring to your right hand, as others have suggested.

So pretty! I think it will look great with or without a wedding band πŸ™‚

Oh I love your ring! Mine has a sapphire center stone as well, so I especially love it for that πŸ™‚ I never would have thought of moving it to the right hand as others have suggested, but I actually like that idea, if you don’t mind wearing rings on both hands!  Or I’m sure you can get a custom band that’s thin and contoured.  Maybe get two very thin bands, one for either side?  That might make it much too wide actually, but would keep it balanced!
