Sunshine528 :  what a gorgeous set! I think they look perfect together 💚 I had the same “illusion” when I owned a yellow gold and white gold set of bands. I thought the white gold looked thinner when they were both 2mm

Ohhhh I like it!! They look the same size to me. I’d get another yellow band to go on the other side of the e ring!

At the jewelry store the other day, I also looked at two bands; one yellow and one white. They were the same size but the yellow looked thinner to me also.

I think it’s lovely!  I think the different colors to better distinguish between the rings is great – seems that if it was the same color it would kinda visually glom together in one big weddingagement ring, which might not be the effect you necessarily want.  The appearance of the wedding band looking smaller is an optical trick because it’s slightly closer to your skin tone and blends a bit.  I still like it.

I have a sapphire engagement ring with side diamonds. We went wedding band shopping last week and we saw the wedding band that goes with the ring and it’s all diamonds and just gets lost when it’s next to the engagement ring.  We tried it out with alternating sapphires (our sales lady colored the diamonds with a blue marker – it’s how they simulate the look of other gems when trying out rings and it totally works) and it was MUCH better – the wedding band stands out but doesn’t compete with the big sapphire in the engagement ring (we also tried all sapphires and it competed too much).

I feel that the diamonds blend in with the white gold making them look bigger. They look like the exact same size! I love your set!!

I could only ‘see’ the difference in size after you mentioned it. They’re so pretty together!

Sunshine528 :  Love your entire set, beautiful and completely get where you’re coming from I’m wanting to see two separate rings! I agree, the wedding band looks thinner but it doesn’t look bad in any way 🙂

I love the two tone look!! I also think it’s an optical illusion. Congrats bee!!
