The ring you love certainly isn’t “gross”, but I don’t think it goes well with your e-ring, it also looks really fragile which is bad news of you intend to wear it every day and you will be sentimentally attached to it (not everybody is and some people are happy to replace them). 

The new ring looks like it will be a little more robust but still fragile, could you not pursue these kind of rings as a stacking option rather than the wedding band? Have you tried other simpler bands with your ring? You could try straight plain and pave bands or half and half. Infinity bands might work too. 

There are excellent wedding set threads on here and in “Show me the Bling” on Pricescope (in the useful threads archive thread). If you browse them you will see what other women with similar rings chose and decide whether they might work for you.

I forget the actual name but a rolling ring like this may fit nicely with your e-ring.

i love the unique look of your favorite. I agree that it may not stand the test of time, however. I think you have to love your ring and shouldn’t settle until you do!

So a couple different options/questions for you… 

-Why don’t your have the wedding band on the “inside” meaning closest to your knuckle versus on the outside closest to your finger knuckle. In most western cultures you wear the band first (“closest to your heart”) THEN your Engagement Ring. If you did this and flipped around the way in which the “crown” ring is facing maybe it would work better?

-Me personally, I’m not in love with the very basic design that the jeweler did. I’d scrap the money spent and buy what you really love. While the detailed design is not my style- it is a lot prettier than than what the jeweler is putting together which feels bulky…not delicate. 

-My ring is similar but different to what you have in that I have a micro pave halo with a semi-split shank band. The main difference is than some of your band is plain metail while all shanks on mine have stones. I have a wedding band that sits flush with it and the plain is to probably add another band to the other side next year (speaking of your concern of feeling “balanced”). They aren’t “true” eternity in that they don’t go all the way around- they go just shy of halfway across. The point is that it “matches”. I think you may need to go the CAD route with another jeweler if you really want to in order to get the look you’re wanting.

Most of the bands that others posted won’t work or at least sit flush because of the curve in the shank compared to your Ering or may not be the right height/design to go under or around the halo. Many people’s wedding band goes under the halo- mine is a bit od that it goes around. 

Just things to think about.

Both of the rings you posted look like tiaras. Rings don’t need hats. I would opt for a whole other look, something simpler as your ring is e-gorgeous and should be the focus.

I agree that both of them look like tiaras, which is a strange look. If I had to choose one, I would pick the second one, but I think both draw the attention away from your e-ring. I’d go with something a lot more classic. The first one isn’t “gross” per se, but its definitely not a good look for your ring. I really think a pretty straight line band below your e-ring would look MUCH better.

veganbee2017 :  And THAT totally is fine and makes sense… I just know several years ago I didn’t realize there was supposed to be a specific order but I know some people prefer them backwards for the reason you just said- to keep it back and because you like the order/layout of the two together. And forget other people- the tiara style is pretty but I see how you wanted art deco and actually what the jeweler designed makes more sense now. I just still prefer what you originally posted or what the other girl sent- which is really pretty.
