    If you love it by itself, then don’t get a band :] But if you’re curious to see how one would look, you and your Fiance could go to a jewelry store and try on different ones. No harm in trying something before you buy it!

    I love your ring! Mine is somewhat similar (sapphire with diamonds on the side), so I’ve attached a couple pics.

    Engagement Ring alone:

    With the wedding band: plain white gold

    I recommend going to stores and trying bands on with your ring. If you find something you like, great! If not, don’t bother! Your ring is so stunning on its own!

    That’s a beautiful ring!  The only thing I can think of would be a ring that alternated diamonds and sapphires.  You don’t need a wedding band if you don’t want one, you can use that as your wedding band as long as you’re okay with people assuming you’re engaged (not married) when they meet you.

    I think a plain gold band (relatively thin) would be perfect.

    @risingsun:  +1.  I’ve got an emerald ring with a yellow gold setting and I’m getting a very slim yellow gold band.  It was just a simple band from the jeweler’s case, but it fit snuggly and perfectly against my engagement ring.

    I think you could add a ring if you wanted to.

    It’s beautiful alone, but it could also be beautiful with a wedding band. I just have one ring, as does my mother, but most women these days want two and feel unmarried without the second. It’s just personal preference!

    I am having the exact same dilemma as you! I also have sapphire w/ white gold but it’s an emerald cut sapphire and very hard to fit a non-custom band around. Wedding band or no band? Tough decision!

    I think your ring is lovely and if you want the focus to be on your ring either do no band or a thin white gold band for the symbolism that will not take away from the ring.

    That’s gorgeous! I think you should get a wedding band, because I personally love wedding bands, but you do whatever works for you.

    It’s beautiful! It would easily work with a large variety of wedding bands, (personally I don’t find a tiny gap between a ring like that and a straight band a negative thing – if there would even be one, looks like it might fit snug) but it also stands alone beautifully. Your preference should be the deciding factor.

    Your ring is beautiful and I also LOVE sapphire engagement rings (mine coming pretty soon I hope!) I’m also particular about the way bands fit with e rings and often think they take away from rather than complement the look of the ring. I think if you feel that way you should just stick with the one ring! Or, have you considered wearing your band on another finger? That might be an option. Just find whatever works for you. I’m for anything that goes against the “standard” and makes it your own.
