First of all, I love my ring 🙂
BUT…we found it on ebay and it did not come with a wedding band. What style do you think would go best(if any)? i’ve considered a plain thick band and also thin bands on the top and bottom…probably without diamonds as we are pretty much broke!
Most people I know have said “Oh you don’t need one”…but I feel like something would be missing on my wedding day 🙁

You can get custom bands made, at a jeweler who does these things. That way it can be more matched or contour.
Otherwise, I think 1 thin band would be fine!

No bands–that is one fantastic ring and any band will be serious overkill.

I think it looks great by itself, but I think there are probably bands that are already designed to fit a ring that is styled like yours out there somewhere. If you know what company it came from, I bet you could find a band to go with it without having to pay the price for a specially designed band.
And just for some insight, my sister didn’t have a wedding band. She just wears her engagement ring only (she had a channel set band for her e-ring because she works in the medical field and has to take gloves off and on all day). She doesn’t feel like she’s missing anything without a wedding band.
I haven’t decided if I’m going to get a wedding band or not yet. I have a solitaire ring, but it has a different setting that requires a custom band. The company we bought it from has a band already designed to go with my setting, but it’s another $400.

if you want a band, you should get one! there will be a gap between my e-ring and my wedding band but it doesn’t bother me at all. i’m just getting a plain thin band. it’s also nice to have a band for times when you might not want to have your e-ring on (at the beach, travelling abroad, etc).

I dont have a wedding band as my ring is bling enough…sometimes I wish i had one, but its all in personal taste! But it looks bling enough that i hardly notice~

I’m in a very similar boat, underwoohoo! My dude and I will both be getting matching wedding bands, and while I luurrrrve my engagement ring, I will likely switch to wearing only one or the other after our wedding (probably wedding band day-to-day, although I’m still considering doing e-ring on left, wedding band on right.)
One of my dearest friends has a wedding band that does not match her engagement ring at all, but they’re both totally gorgeous – she loves them and so she rocks it! All about your personal preference, I think 🙂

I’d go with one plain thin band.

I know how you feel about the no band thing! My ring didn’t come with one either but i felt that it was sentimental and important to me so i went on the never ending hunt to find one! If it is important to you than go for it. You best option is to go to place after place and keep trying on bands with it. that’s what i had to do.. i went all over Oklahoma and the bay area lol You can’t really decide until you see them together on your hand! Happy Hunting and Good Luck!

I’d also go with a simple plain band or perhaps a thin eternity band with tiny diamonds. But you don’t have to wear your e-ring with the wedding band, you know. A lot of women switch their e-rings to their right hand and wear their bands on the left.
(I’m the sort of chick who buys TWO wedding rings–one that compliments my engagement ring (A) and one that’s completely separate (B) and plan on wearing a bunch of permutations: A+ering on one hand; A + ering on separate hands; B + ering on separate hands; just B ring; just A ring; just ering; all three on different fingers; A+ering on left hand, B on right…So you don’t necessarily need to lock it down to one style unless you want to 🙂

wow i’m out of the loop. i had no idea so many people switched hands and rings (e-ring and wedding band) so often! my experience was –engagement ring goes on…wedding band goes on….and they never come off! i may end up just having a separate band to wear at work since i’m also in the medical field.
thanks for all the suggestions!! 🙂

I think you might want a band for days when you don’t feel like wearing the bling-y ring, but you still want to have a wedding ring on.

Not to add to the options but how about a slim diamond band? I don’t know if a plain band would match. Maybe something like a baguette band? Nothing huge, just something slim and elegant?

I’d get a thin plain band – I’m with you, I’d feel like something was missing without a wedding band.

I didn’t want to spend a lot on my band, plus I didn’t want to overpower my e ring. I went with a plain thin band, and love it.
