Is there a less expensive option for a wedding band?  A lot of people don’t buy the one that matches their sets.

I think it looks gorgeous on its own! I know of a few couples that just kept the e-ring for their wedding ring out of practicality, and taste!

I LOVE your ring and wouldn’t get a band at all. I personally chose an engagement ring similar to yours in that there are already multiple bands and I think a wedding band might detract from it. You shouldn’t feel you have to get a band if you don’t want one now, and it would be a great anniversary band a few years from now.

If you are sentimental, you could always get a plain band for the ceremony that could be worn when you don’t want to wear your ring (e.g. when traveling abroad, or the gym).  You get the sentimentalism of having it in the ceremony but without planning to wear it all the time or on the same hand.  Some people wear the band on the right or left hand, with the engagement ring on the other hand

@ashleyyyg:  Gorgeous ring!! I know it doesn’t bother most people, but it would bug me not to have a band.  Have you considered getting one custom made?

@ashleyyyg:  hmm, that’s interesting.  What about getting it for your one year anniversary or something?  Maybe it will go on sale by then.

@ashleyyyg:  I totally understand what you’re saying on that.  I looked at some of the website pictures.  Have you tried a plain band with it?

I think there are a lot of bands out there that are similar to the one you posted, the matching one.  You would just have to find one that’s notched out or curved to fit.

Obviously you don’t need one, your ring is beautiful!  But I would want one if it was me!

Personally, I love it by itself. It looks like it is two rings put in one. It’s gorgeous, I adore split-shanks!

In contrast, I know this going to sound really weird, but have you considered getting a wedding band to wear on your right hand? Some people do this if their e-ring isn’t compatible with a wedding band next to it, but you may or may not like it..

I would want one. Having a wedding band is important to me.

Perfectly fine to be without a band – I know a girl who did what you did, and it looks great!  You could always go with a plain band or something as a substitute for the ceremony or days when it’s not practical to wear the ering.
