I just ordered my wedding band and I am SO excited! I wasn’t sure what to get to go with my e-ring, and this was totally not what I expected to want, but I love it… Here’s my e-ring:
and here’s my wedding band:
You might not think they go together at first, since the e-ring is so sleek and the band is art deco, but it makes a lovely contrast that I think is tied in by the circle shapes in the band. I wish I had a picture of them together!
Anyone else have a neat, unexpected e-ring/wedding band combination?

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. 🙂

Thanks for all the comments! I’ll be sure to post a pic of me wearing them both when the band comes in in a couple of weeks… Feel free to do the same – I’d love to see them!
Sounds like a lot of people are doing non-traditional things with their rings, which is cool. Before we got engaged I totally considered not having one at all, and spending the money instead on something we both could enjoy (like travel). But then, sigh, I bought into the wedding machine. We had been together for so long before getting engaged (almost 11 years) that I almost felt like I needed the ring to symbolize this change in our relationship. Silly huh?!

I just remembered that I had promised to post a picture of my
wedding ring and e-ring together! Here it is, please ignore the hairy
Hm, hopefully it doesn’t show up quite as large as it looks right now… I’ll post and see!

Doesn’t look like it showed up… well, here’s a link to it, hope that works better.

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