DrAtkins : I tried on an emerald band similar to that today! I think all of the prongs in my e-ring make it feel very vintage, whereas the minimalist prongs on the marquise band give it a modern look. So it felt very mismatched. It was a beautiful band, though.
wildflowerbride2020 : Thanks for the feedback! No, I haven’t. FH and I both felt strongly about a traditional wedding band…I can see what you mean about the gap. I want to find a ring that celebrates the gap. I like how it draws the eye to the band and screams “married” 🙂 But I definitely need a wider band for balance.
moissamight : I can see that, the smaller size definitely looks mismatched. I think a wider one would highlight the yellow gold in the e-ring though
ArcadiaRose : Thank you! I’m leaning towards a slightly wider twist. We just asked the Etsy seller about the possibility of exchanging for one that she sells.
elderbee : Thank you!!! I totally agree. The chevron bands are beautiful, but the traditional circle is a special symbol. We really want the band to stand out and stand alone since that’s the actual symbol of our commitment. Plus I like the old-world feeling of yellow gold/emeralds, and the curved bands are more modern.

I think the twisted band looks gorgeous with that e-ring!!!

I voted for the half diamond eternity band, I liked how it kinda looked like the base of a tiara with your engagement ring being the point. If you don’t like how big the stones are in the one you posted maybe go for a smaller size diamond? I really like the whole negative space thing, and usually, I like things to sit flush.
Also, the Duchess of Cambridge has a plain gold wedding band that does not sit directly flush with her engagement ring. Same with Princess Eugenie. Your engagement ring is a stunner and can hold its own with a plainer wedding band. Rock that gap.

I think this ring looks best as a stand alone, either as a combination engagement/wedding ring or an engagement ring separately on your right hand and any wedding band you like for left. The latter was actually a pretty common thing in my mother and grandmother’s generation.
IMO none of the styles you mention will do yours any real justice.

I decided on the twisted band! We’re exchanging the ring for a twisted band a little wider than the one I tried on in the picture. I’ll update with a picture when it gets here 🙂

klr4589 : No idea sorry, I just did a quick google search for gold chevron bands to find an example.

I love the twist band. I really like that they don’t “fit”. I am very unmatchy and prefer different textures and colors etc. I think a chevron band would not look as good. Good choice!

I would not want anything else to go with that stunner. Wow your ring is beautiful. It’s a tiara and you can never upstage the queen! I would go for a plain yellow gold band for plain days (no pun intended). Like going to the gym, gardening, hiking, vacation etc. Or wear both on different fingers. Or get an eternity/ half-eternity/ five stone band. But honestly, any band (on the same finger) would make your e ring not as special. that e ring is way too pretty to need any support. That’s how my dad explained not giving me a middle name lol.

So glad you chose the twist, it looks great, both for it’s own sake as a eternal circle and with your emeralds.
