Fiance bought me a beautiful, HUGE, cushion cut, halo setting engagement ring. It didn’t come with a band, and neither of us even thought about it being an issue finding one that matched. It is an issue! We can’t find one anywhere and the wedding is 3 months away! I don’t have a picture of it on this computer, but its 2.5 carats, one large diamond in the middle, surrounded by 2 rows of pave diamons in a halo setting, with 3 bands on each side full of pave diamonds. Hope that helps get an image. I would have loved to find one that fits flush against mine, but no such luck so far..the halo shape is on the larger side, and I’m not too fond of the gap in between if I were to stack it ontop of a straight band.
I’m thinking of moving it to my right hand index finger on the wedding day, and buying a completely different style of wedding band for my ring finger. At first I only wanted to do this because I thought I had to, now I’m actually excited to have a ring on both hands, spread the blind around 😉
What do you ladies think? Is this a major nono?

Your ring sounds really pretty. I have the same problem since I have an emerald cut halo. At first I thought of having a custom band made to fit beside it, but now I’ve decided to get a straight band and just have the gaps. What made me decide this is seeing it on several people such as Eva Longoria, and the mom from gossip girl (hehe). I think it looks pretty. Anyways, that’s my opinion.

Kind of crappy pic, but anyone know of anywhere around Vancouver area to find wedding bands to match my E ring?

Go to the jeweler that you bought the ring from or any local jeweler and they can make a custom band within 6 weeks…they can even take a band the currently have and alter it and it would be ready in a couple weeks….good luck!!!

Honestly, I think you could wear your Ering alone! The triple band makes it look like an engagement ring flanked by stacking wedding bands. Gorgeous!

@inspiredcreations: I agree with her.
However if you wanted a wedding band maybe if your open to it try something with a colored gem stone / diamond. It would contrast nicely and not get lost with all those beautiful bands of diamonds already, or perhaps just stick to a thin plain band? Either way your Engagement Ring is beautiful!

@Brittany85: I had to go custom for my halo… My jeweler worked with us to stay within our price point too 🙂 Go for it!
However, your Engagement Ring really could stand on its own if you wanted 🙂 maybe keep it n your left hand and get a separate ring as a RHR?

with your setting, you really don’t need one. If you wanted one, you could do wedding band on 1 hand ering on the other.

A think plain gold band would probably fit under the edge of that halo. And, it could be worn alone if you’re doing something like going to the gym or working in the yard.

I think that sounds like a plan, that way you don’t have to worry about finsing one that matches up perfectly. If you aren’t having any luck I would try looking online. I personally like Hearts on Fire, maybe you should take a look at their wedding rings page:
