Personally with a stunner like that I’d stick with a simple band to let your ering do all the talking

adriannamonet :  no it wouldn’t be weird if you just didn’t have one. I’m in the same boat and can’t figure out if I want a wedding band or if I want to leave my ring alone. My ring sits beautifully on my finger and already very prominent and it’s also very dainty and elegant. I feel if I was to add a band to it, it would take away from the delicate-ness of the ring and just be too showy. It would lose class.  Honestly I feel like if I was to have a wedding band that I would wear it on the opposite hand so I would still have one and if I was going somewhere where I didn’t want to wear my blingy engagement ring (like a sports event or concert etc) then I would have my band to wear instead. My best friend also has a ballerina style ring and she is married and she does not have a wedding band and that is all she wears on a regular basis. when she goes out to places where it wouldn’t be advised for her to bring her ring she has a couple different cheapy stand in wedding sets that she wears instead.

adriannamonet :  I 100% wouldn’t add a band, I think your ring looks amazing on its own and a band would be distracting. I have seen some bees on here with similarly striking rings, and they were also considering not getting a band. I don’t think it’s weird at all.

I really like the band you posted. It’s really dainty and I feel like it wouldn’t take away from your beautiful e ring because it’s kind of minimalistic… if I didn’t want to add a wedding band with my e ring i would personally still get one and wear it on my right hand 🙂 that way you could get a really nice band that you could also wear in situations that you wouldn’t wear your e ring

I think your ring is stunning and it’d look great on its own. However, if you really want a band, I would just get a simple one. I have an oval cut sapphire with a halo (similar to Princess Kate’s/Princess Diana’s) and I just got a super thin band so it doesn’t distract from the engagement ring.

Your ring is amazing!

I think with the band you’ve picked out, you won’t really see the stones apart from maybe two. They’ll all be hiding behind your e-ring! I really like the band though, and would look great alone.

Personally, I’m planning on just having an e-ring and skipping the wedding band, so I don’t think it would be weird at all if you do too!

Never considered getting a band. My e-ring is the only jewelry I wear plus the way it’s designed with a double halo and split shank I feel it’s enough on its own. And honestly sometimes I find the ring and band combo looks a bit odd. 🤔 Depends. Do whatever works best for you. Beautiful ring btw! 🙂

I have a 3mm plain gold band that is about .25 sizes smaller than my e-ring. It sits under the e-ring, and can be seen, but also blends in (same color gold).  This is what my DH gave me during the ceremony, and what I wear when I don’t want to wear the e-ring (traveling, etc). 


Love your ring!

I think it looks awesome alone! I have a double halo split shank halo ring and it of times I don’t wear it with a band. I have never really found a band that I was 100% in love with to pair with it. I think maybe getting a coordinated band and wearing it on the right hand and maybe wearing it on your left hand when you dont want to wear your engagement ring is a great option. Let us know what you decide on. 

This is my ring but I have since switched the centerstone to an antique cushion cut.

Lovely ring! I’d  have a plain gold band . It isn’t  weird  of course  to not have a wedding ring, but I would rather have  one than an engagement ring   tbh, vows and  all that …..

My mom has a similar style ring and she never wore a band with it. Not weird at all! Just a personal preference. You could always wear a band on the ther side as well. I have a friend who does that because she has a very intricate antique engagement ring.
