futuremrsw26:  The side of your ERing is so pretty! It really does look like a beautiful and elegant little crown. That must mean you are the queen of your FI’s heart. 

I do think your wedding band is beautiful, and it looks great on you. But, I can see what you mean when you say you feel the wedding band might look too modern for your lovely ERing.

What about the idea of getting a wedding band that has some milgraining on the edges, to match the sides of your ERing shank? That might give the two bands a more cohesive look. Or, maybe you could have a band custom-made to match the side profile of your ERing. Although, neither of these options would solve your issue of not being able to see the profile of your ring. And your rings would probably still rub against each other. You could also wear your wedding ring on the outside of your ERing, so that your ring’s profile would still be facing you, closest to your palm.

This is my original wedding band. I wore it alone for several years.

futuremrsw26:  Thanks so much! Honestly, it isn’t what I would have picked. But I do love it, and it has become sentimental with the passage of time.

I understand not being able to afford a custom band with all the other expenses. DH and I were in that same boat when we got married. Except for a very few expenses, we paid for our wedding on our own, too, which is why I ended up with the band I have instead of the one that matched my ERing. I really wanted the matching band, as I had always thought to wear a matched “set”. So, it was disappointing at the time. DH picked this band for me because he wanted me to have something he thought was special and a little different.

The great thing is that you will have lots and lots and lots of years of marriage with your wonderful sweet heart. There will be anniversaries and special occasions and reasons to celebrate along the way … and, possibly, many rings in the future, if that’s what you both want.  I’m a switch-em-up kind of gal, although I know that’s not what everyone loves to do. But it fits me, and my DH doesn’t mind.

I think your band with the diamonds looks beautiful on its own. It has lovely presence on your hand, and I think it must sparkle beautifully, too.

futuremrsw26:  I really like your ering and band together! You can absolutely wear each ring separate. I wear just my wedding band more often than not and seeing it by itself has really grown on me. I like the way a solitary band looks so wear the ering on one hand and the band on the other. I tried wearing just my ering once recently and a random stranger stopped me within minutes going “oh my your engaged!”…. Whoops! Wedding band always for me on my left hand now.

I wear my “engagement ring” (which I call my wedding ring, because it was an upgrade/anniversary present, not what I got engaged with) on my left hand and my wedding band on my right hand. I love the look of rings on separate hands. Gives both of them their own spotlight.
