If you plan on wearing them together.. then yes. But that doesn’t seem like you do ๐Ÿ™‚ just keep it since you love it ๐Ÿ™‚

Your engagement ring is beautiful and if it were me I would keep it cause it’s what your FH chose for you. The wedding ring is nice too but I agree it doesn’t match well together..so you should show off that engagement ring and get a wedding band that correlates a little more with the other. If you do decide to wear it by itself it’s nice : ) good luck (I hate these hard decisions!)

I kind of like the mismatched look! Plus, that band is beautiful.

It really depends if you want a stacked e-ring/wedding band look or not. If you want the stacked look, I’d get a different band. I like my stacked look, but always envisioned as stacked. It feels weird when I only wear my plain band without my e-ring.

I know exactly what you are going through…..the same thing happened to me.  Did I like it, did I not like it, did I like it…..finally my FH got so tired of me talking about my dilemma, he bought me 3 thin pave bands to stack against my 6 prong solitaire and I opted to wear the wedding band on its own.

i think the band is too big for the engagement ring — it totally overpowers it. if you never plan on wearing them together, then it’s not a problem; but if you do, i would get a new band.

That beautiful wedding band definitely overpowers your gorgeous engagement ring. I love them both on their own but if you ever plan on wearing them together I don’t think it’s a good match, just because rather than complementing each other they kind of fight each other for the center of attention. I’d probably keep the wedding band to wear separately and maybe get a much thinner, inexpensive band to wear with your engagement ring for special occasions.

I would go for a new band personally. I want a band that has the option of being worn with and without my engagement ring.

However, it truely is a preferenace thing and if you beleive you will wear it by itself mostly then I see no need to get a new one.

I think that both of your rings are beautiful and if thats the band that you want then go for it!!! It doesnt have to match perfectly.. it will give your set charecter and make it unique.. plus thats the ring that he chose for you..or you chose together it has sentimental value. If you love both keep them both.

I think the wedding band is beautiful however I agree with others that say it overpowers your ER. I love mismatched sets, I have one! But I think this band is a little too wide for such a delicate band.
