    Split shanks are tricky… I do think that looks nice, but I just personally don’t like curved bands. I just don’t like that it’s not its own piece of jewelry. It becomes an add-on to an existing piece, and often times makes it look unsymetrical.

    I vote to get a straight band you can wear alone, because if that appeals to you, it’s gonna bother the heck out of you that you can’t wear your curved one alone should you choose to get one. It would drive me nuts, personally.

    You know what though? There’s really no rule that you MUST wear your rings on the same hand/finger. See, that’s kind of the beauty of a split shank — there’s already two “bands,” so it can stand alone nicely. There’s nothing wrong with wearing your rings separately.

    You might find this article interesting to read!

    Oh, and I really like that wedding band! That’s the nice thing about choosing to wear your rings separate, if you go that route, your band can have a totally different style going on!

    I think I’m going to be a bit different and get a contour band that I can wear with my solitaire, as well as getting a simpler wide band that I will wear when I don’t want my solitaire on (traveling, gardening/chores, court, etc). So on the big day, I’ll have one heck of a stack on for a bit, but from day to day I’ll just wear whichever best fits the situation, the set or the plain band. I just want to feel like I always have my wedding band on, so if there are 2, I can always have that 🙂

    I really like the ring in the pic above, I think it fits well with your e-ring. To start with, I actually thought your e-ring was a single band surrounded by 2 wedding bands, it was only when I looked closer I saw the e-ring is split shank. What you’ve got on in the pic is beautiful, I’d go with that!
