    You’re right, you can’t wear the matching one alone.

    What is the width of the ering band vs. the antique-y wedding band?  If they are close in width I think it would be a nice combo.

    I’m a big fan of things NOT sitting flush, so I would go with the second one! You’re right, the first one would look strange on its own. Here is my non-matching set:

    It sounds like having a wedding band you can wear solo is more important to you than having them sit flush (which I am in total agreement with!), so I say go for the second one.  I love the character of it as well.

    It is fun to be eclectic.  I am not matching.  My wedding band will be rose gold and my engagement ring antique white gold.

    Can you return after you order? I had the exact same dilemma (matchy or not) and I ordered 2 rings and tried them both with my ring so I could make an informed decision 🙂

    I’m having my rings soddered together so they’ll be one ring so it’s not an issue for me. However, since you said you want to wear just your wedding band in certain situations, then I would go for the non-matching one because the matching one might look a bit odd on it’s own. Plus the non-matching one is more unique!

    Can you find a matching band without the notch?  My band matches my e-ring, but there is no notch, so I can wear it by itself without it looking weird.

    Awesome!! That is the exact ring I was considering and it is beautiful!! Ultimately I went with a matching ring but that one is really pretty!
