I like it – The band makes the ring sparkle more. I’m going for a totally different band and I plan to wear the band on an every day basis and the ring for special occassions.  My ring is a square shape and not bands will match it.

Mine match, but I’m kind of afraid that the two together will be a scary amount of bling.  My original plan was to wear the wedding ring for everyday, the e-ring for special.  My next plan was to wear the e-ring on my right hand, cause I would miss it sooooo much if I didn’t wear it.  Of course, my experience with the e-ring is that it took less than a month to get totally used to the sparkle, so probably the two together will look normal to me pretty quick.

mine do not match at all- but they go together.

My engagement ring is a bit more modern and sporty.  but i really wanted to play up something more delicate and feminine for the wedding band.

at first when i explained my thoughts to my boyfriend and my family – they couldn’t picture it- and thought i was off my rocker.  But I carted them up to jewelry store to see it- WOW- then they got it and so how nice the contrast was.

I am going with just a simple 2mm white gold band. My e-ring is a unique shape and design so nothing we have found so far matches. I love my e-ring so much that I hinted that I might want to just keep wearing it alone after the wedding.  Supprisingly my fiance was completely supportive.  He said that it makes sense with my job.  I work in an industrial enviroment so I will have just a simple band for the days I am on the plant floor and my e-ring alone for everyday wear.  My fiance said a ring is a ring- it carries the same message whether I am engaged or married… not that he has anything to worry about anyways!

mtyf-  Those look amazing!  So unexpected, but very cool!!  The circles really do tie it in!

We got my e-ring over the summer at an art fair!  It’s a simple sterling silver ring with a pink tourmaline stone.  FI was just starting grad school and accumulating a boatload of loans, so we decided to get a simple ring now because people were asking (why doesn’t anyone believe you’re engaged (or think FI’s a bum) if you don’t have a ring?!), and do something more elaborate when we got our bands.  We’re about to order them…he wants to do a titanium ring with a wave inlay, and I found a tension setting with a wave inlay, too!  We’ll use one of my grandmother’s diamonds.  My e-ring will become a right-hand ring.  πŸ™‚

Mine are different stones but I LOVE it. The sapphire is brightened by the diamonds and the diamonds give the sapphire a pop.
