My fella has let slip what my engagement ring is going to look like because he’s so stuck with what design wedding band would work with the engagement ring. And I’m not surprised! I am also stuck, but would not change the engagement ring for anything, it’s just so perfect.
I’m star obsessed and to me this ring pulls that off without being cheesey. It’s also symbolic, we met by chance (like seeing a shooting star) after being in each others “orbit” same friends etc. but never meeting for over a decade.We’re also about to have our 10 year anniversary, hence the eternity style in the band of the ring too.
How on earth could you incorporate a wedding band with this ring without ruining it? If you have any ideas we would love to hear them please please please!
Here’s a pic of the Star design the ring will be based on.

Honestly I just wouldn’t do a wedding band. That’s so much ring by itself that I don’t know that you could find a wedding band that would compliment without looking like too much.
Maybe you can get a right hand ring that you really love that has meaning on its own.
by the by I put star eternity ring in google and came up with this, which is not really my style but still really pretty I think!

honestly, because of the shape, i don’t think you can wear another ring on the same finger…plus it will just be a little much going on on the one finger. i would just wear your wedding band on the other hand.

I really like that the ring is going to stand for something sentimental, however I will run the risk of sounding rude just to be honest with you: I don’t really love the ring & I think you could find something enternity style & star shaped (or custom design one) that would look less cheesy since that is something that concerns you.
Best of luck!

@Kat: the OP wasn’t asking for opinions on her ring- she was asking for help on what kind of corresponding band to wear.

@Kat: LOL! Did we forget about avoiding “hypocritical nonsense” already?? I’ll just go ahead and quote you from last week:
“…sometimes it’s better not to say anything at ALL if you have nothing nice to say in return. I thought we were all taught that lesson a while ago”
OP, I agree that your best bet is to wear your rings on two separate hands, if that’s the ring you are choosing.

@Mrs. Meowerson: Thanks for the clarification..
In that case, since apparently I’m considered TOTALLY unaware of how to comprehend a simple question, I would say go with a plain white gold or platinum band. Unless you want to heed my prior advice to custom create a ring that would allow for more options in the way of wedding bands.
I like the rings suggested by Kala way..

i think you could get a band custom made that looks like one of the ‘rays’?? i have no clue what the tail of the shotting star is called… hrmmm.. this is a tough one.

I love the ring, and I know how hard it is to find a wedding band when the ring is unique I have his Oma’s ring and there is not a match to it anymore….
annnyway so this is what I found… I also found one for him incase he too wanted a star ring….

@littlemissmango: The difference is that I was trying to be helpful here and give her a critical opinion that I felt she could benefit from. If you need me to quote myself from previous posts, I can do so. I also distinctly remember saying that you shouldn’t say something that can be construde as hurtful unless it is with the intent to be productive and helpful.
^^ Exactly what I was trying to do.

@Kat: To quote the OP, “I am also stuck, but would not change the engagement ring for anything, it’s just so perfect.” While the engagement ring might not be your taste, it’s clearly hers, and I don’t think calling it “cheesy” is productive or helpful in any way.
OP, I agree with the posters who suggested wearing your e-ring and wedding band on separate hands. I think anything other than a super simple plain band will be too much with the e-ring. I’d just choose a wedding band you love and wear it on your other hand.

I personally would not get a wedding band. Do you want a wedding band? I know a lot of people that have unique e-rings but do not want a custom band will wear the e-ring on their right hand, and a wedding band on the left.
It’s totally up to you!

I think you’re going to have to get something custom made. You could probably get a “simple” or “plain” band made that will contour the bottom of the ring. I wouldn’t get anything that is busy because that will take away from the unique engagement ring you’ll have.

just to second the no wedding ring suggestion- i just have one ring for engagement/wedding and it is very powerful on its own, like yours- you wont feel like you missed out or anything if you just decide to stick with the one ring.

No worries, I totally understood the critique of maybe redesigning it to something similar for a more traditional wedding band to sit with. And I’m aware of how it’s most definatelly not to many folks tastes, I just don’t worry about things like that.
Apparently this picture is of a “Chanel” ring!? He managed to cover my two sides (Libra), a love of good design and the fact I’m a great big silly hippie too hehe. It’s going to be 100% ethically made apparently. With all the thought that has gone into this ring I could not change a thing, bless him. Nor want to.
Thank you Stephanie63087, this was something I had started to wonder too, could one of the trail bits be the wedding band, to complete the overall look… Wonder how that could be engineered?
As for a band for him he’s a bit of (self confessed) tarty rock star looking guy. Long dirty blond hair Bon Jovi style. He works with his hands, sound engineering and performing so I thought a Damascus steel tension setting might be nice, so it’s hard wearing enough for all the bashing it would take. He likes big statement pieces in a small space and does want the star theme to carry over.
Something a bit like this, but with stone off centre so it’s kind of like a shooting star in space gases…
P.S. I know I waffle, but it’s my due date for our second baby today and this is keeping me sane-ish
