chirpychappers:  wow, what a stunning and unique ring! Your fi did good. Personally I would go the custom route to have something similar that matches the shape, just with it being such a unique ring.

chirpychappers:  stunning ring! I’ve never seen anything like it before! I would get a custom ring that sits flush and compliments the stunning design. If you are concerned about when you go without your ering, why not get two Bands? One to wear with, and one to wear without?

chirpychappers:  that’s a beautiful ring!! Congrats!! I also say id get a custom band for sure. And maybe a plain straight band for days you go engagement ringless. It’s an amazing ring tho!!!!

chirpychappers:  That’s so lovely! I have a split shank engagement ring and went with a straight band because I wanted to be able to wear my wedding band solo without it looking odd, so I’m obviously on Team Gap. That said, you’re right, it will likely be a really large gap; maybe move your enagement ring to your right hand and wear a straight wedding band on your left? Then it’s sparkle on both hands!

chirpychappers:  Wow! Gorgeous ring! Call me crazy but I actually wouldn’t try to get any sort of wedding band at all! It steals the show all by itself and you can use it in the ceremony and let it serve the purpose of your engagement AND wedding ring! This dual ring tradition is only shared by certain sections of the world because most of the modern world doesn’t use any sort of ring at all! The ceremonial ritual of marrying (and the record/license that is signed) is as far as most people go and it is more than enough to set one’s self apart as the husband or wife of another.  With a ring that stunning I say save the money and let it shine in all it’s glory to represent the love, bond, and union you have between yourself and your husband.  Congratulations to you both! <3

chirpychappers:  Wow! Beautoful ring. It looks like a ribbon. I would get a custom ring guard for that beauty. And definitely a sleek straight band with some sapphire in it for days where you don’t want to be too fancy (or are in a sketchy area).

I would do custom. Do you actually know how much it would cost? I didn’t think going the custom route was all that much more expensive and we were really surprised.

I love a gap, but only when it is not too large. I would recommend getting one specially made or at least so it sits closer. You can always just get a plain band for wearing when you don’t want your e-ring too. That’s what my friend does since her e-ring and wedding ring are soldered together.

That ring I think is becoming my favorite on here.  Congratulations! 

I don’t think I would add another ring at all.  That is beautiful as is!

I would go for a custom ring, or do as  ComputerLove06 suggests and use this amazing ring as both engagement and wedding band. You really don’t need to add anything else to it <br /><br />

I would either skip a wedding band or move the engagement ring to the right hand with a straight wedding band.

I would skip a band altogether, or get a straight one and move the ering to your right hand. That ring is stunning and steals the show all on its own!

I would do custom and wear it either with or without a band. I like gaps, but not with your ring. I would be afraid that it might distract from the beauty of this piece.

I think a matching band, if done exactly like your ERing, would be interesting on it’s own. You could ask your jeweller to sketch the outline for you before sending it off. It could be a stunning band worn with or without your engagement ring!
