My engagement ring has an intricate gallery profile. It’s one of my favourite parts of the ring!
the issue is now we are looking for a band. There are a few options:
1) the matching band from the designer however this is a bit on the pricey side
2) a more simple band however it likely won’t stack with my e-ring so I could wear it on the right hand?
3) no wedding band at all
What would you choose? Any links or recommendations are welcome as well!

I’d hate to cover up that pretty side view, personally. I’d either stick with the engagement ring alone, wear a wedding band on my right hand or stack the wedding band on the outside rather than inside.

have you got pictures of the options you mention?
Without photos, I’m leaving towards the matching wedding band. It maybe a bit more pricey, but I feel like it’s a lifelong investment and worth the extra money.

I vote matching band or no band/band on right hand. With an intricate ring like yours, my personal preference is no band. I find most bands end up competing, and the overall look becomes too busy, but that’s just my take.

I love your ring….I would do a thin pave low profile ring. My friend has a Tacori and did this so it doesn’t cover the details and it looks great from the top and doesn’t cover anything from the side!

Matching band! You won’t regret it!

I have the same issue and will be going down the thin low profle ring rather than pay for the crazy expensive matching band. I also love my side profile but I’ve also got the added potential scratchy side diamonds that make me doubt whether the matching band + ering wont erode against each other

l would go for a plain white gold /platinum band with a milgrain edge. I think a matching band would be a bit too much ( but that’s just me) . I am not keen on the no wedding ring option and there will be times where it’s not convenient or you don’t want to wear your engagement ring and a nice plain ish wedding ring alone looks great.

I agree with the PPs suggestions of a thin low profile band. Maybe half eternity, if you want the extra sparkle, although a plain band would look really good against all the bling as well. Something like this would look really good too. It’s on Etsy, and comes in both silver ($55) and 14k wg ($315) so you could try silver before deciding

Also, FWIW, I don’t see anything wrong with wearing a super blingy matching wedding band on the right hand or none at all. It won’t make you less married. I went a couple of years without wearing a band before I found one I liked (curved, in my case). Sometimes I’d wear a wedding style band on my right, sometimes another pretty ring. You do what looks and feels best to you.

I would need to see the matching band to be sure, but I agree that a low profile wedding band would work

Here is what the website shows as the matching band!

I would get the matching ring! It’s beautiful! You could always get a simple, low profile band until you’ve had time to save for the matching band.
