It’s gorgeous…probably shouldn’t wear it with your solitaire though. When I want to wear big blingy bands, I wear them on my right hand ring finger and wear the solitaire alone or with a plain skinny band. Oodles of options.

luckyladylaterinlife35:  I think that sounds like a really great idea.  I think stacking two thinner bands is much more pleasing and practical.  I think some of the sets I see on here that are thicker look pretty still, but I personally find it uncomfortable for every day.  Just my two cents.  I like the idea of the thinner channel setting.

It’s beautiful on its own but I do not think it compliments the e-ring well.

It’s not my style, I prefer to pair an ering with a thinner band. I would wear the band on its own though.

They detract from each other–so you don’t get the full effect of each of the rings, they cancel each other out.

luckyladylaterinlife35:  really takes away from your ring.  Your ering should be the focal point.

I don’t like the look, a bit clunky and overpowers your ering. But like 90% of bees hate my wedding band so who cares, get what you love!

luckyladylaterinlife35:  I actually really like it which is odd for me bc usually I love daintier sets.

I like it and on occasion when you decide not to wear your e-ring, it will look just as stunning alone.  go for it, there isn’t any such thing as too much bling

I am looking for a wedding band for my solitaire also. I went to 5 jeweler stores yesterday and tried on tons of different bands. The one that looked best was just like lilsweetie’s band. Her set is so beautiful! The 5 stone band with metal showing on the sides draws attention to the center stone. The diamond bands looked great with my moissanite. Good luck!
