I just got my wedding band in and I LOVE it. I got an amazing deal on it through Macy’s online, so I obviously hadn’t gotten to try it on before buying it. The problem is, we don’t think it goes well with my dainty e-ring. My Fiance offered for me to move my e-ring to my other hand (I wont trade it in to trade up because I LOVE it) and get another e-ring to match my wedding band better. I’m not big on jewelry and I already have a diamond so I was thinking about possibly getting a gemstone ring. Mayeb one with the kids birthstone (Alexandrite for June) and make it a ‘family’ ring representing the joining of our family and me finaly having my childrens last name, haha.
Here are the rings together .. I apolagize, my e-ring needs a cleaning, haha.
Please share your bands and e-rings that you bought seperately to give me some insight!

@baileysbride2be: Both rings are very pretty, but aesthetically they do not really work together. I’m the frugal type so I would probably just ignore it and not spend anymore money on getting another band unless you can return it and find a thinner eternity band that doesn’t break the bank. Do you think you will evetually just wear the wedding band though? Some ladies end up wearing the band most of the time and only busting out the engagement ring here and there. Another thing that would concern me is whether or not the wedding band would compromise the structual integrity of the engagement ring. I’m no jewelry expert by any means, but I’ve been under the impression that a wedding band that rubs up on the setting of the e-ring could damage it over time…not sure about it, really, but maybe something you could ask a jeweler!

I agree with you completely. My soon to be mother-in-law suggested that I move my engagement ring to my other hand and just wear my wedding band alone. I am thinking about that as well but I kind of wanted to wear them together.

@baileysbride2be: they are both equally beautiful but they are conflicting with each other. i think the band would be better alone.
if you really want a band to go with your ering, i would pick a thin pave band like the one on your ering (fitted or straight).

The diamonds in the band appear to be of poor quality. I’d send it back and seek out something that looks better WITH the ring you already have

I agree with a lot of the suggestions on here…
One- the quality of the diamonds isn’t too great… For a ring that size you want it to sparkle as much as possible!
Two- I think the thickness of the wedding band can stand alone.
So, you have choices…. Move the e-ring to your right hand, keep that wedding band if you really love it and put it on your right hand and get a much thinner w-ring that would compliment your e-ring.

I do like them together! The band might be slightly too large to allow your delicate e-ring to be featured properly. What I recommend…getting a thinner diamond band for your e-ring and absolutely keeping this two-row diamond band either for your right hand or to wear alone when you don’t want to wear your wedding set. I also have another band when I don’t to wear my large e-ring (cycling, working out, etc.) Your e-ring is beautiful!!!

I would either wear the wedding band alone and put Engagement Ring on right hand, or get a different wedding band if you really want to wear them together.

Both are pretty rings but I think that a different band would look better….the band is pretty but I would look into a thinner version of it.

@baileysbride2be: I love them both but I think together they take away from each other. I love the idea of moving your e-ring to your right hand, and possibly getting a gemstone ring to match the band
I have a mismatched set, as well. But, I did try and complement my e-ring as much as I could.

I think the band by itself will work and move the e-ring to the right hand.

I agree with Kabira1208 — I honestly don’t see that wedding band looking good paired with any e-ring. that’s only because I prefer more delicate bands if you are going to wear more than one ring at a time.
however, each ring is beautiful. what if you wore the e-ring on your right hand and let your beautiful wedding band stand out on its own?

Together they look bad.
I don’t think there is any e-ring that would go with the band. I would look at returning the band and getting something that would go with your lovely e-ring.
I am going to sound mean here, but the diamond quality on the band looks poor, I would be surprised if they were better than I2 or 3 clarity- Better to spent the money on a thin band to match with better quality stones.

@baileysbride2be: what do think about wearing your engagement ring on your right hand and wedding band on the left

I would return the band and get a thin gemstone ring instead. Your engagement ring is so pretty but you can’t really appreciate it with the big band next to it.
