New to weddingbee and would love opinions or wedding band suggestions. I love my e-ring so much (1.2 radiant in a cathedral setting) but have no clue what wedding band I would like. I like both I’ve attached but I’m worried they will look really mid matched. Also, my e-ring is a F color, but it seems most of the smaller diamonds I see are g-h. Will this be noticeable when side by side? Thanks!!

I like the second option. It is similar to my band.

I really think anything would look great since it’s a solitaire. As for the G/H diamonds, small diamonds appear much much whiter than larger stones plus they are rounds. Radiant cuts show more color than round diamonds so I really think they will match great with your F color radiant. I love that bezel bubbly band btw!

I think the 2nd one matches most. I’m just not feeling the first one.

My e-ring looks similar to yours, except oval, and I am considering both of these bands! I like them both but I’m really leaning towards the second one.
And I wouldn’t worry about the diamonds not matching in color, I haven’t noticed this whentrying bands on. I do notice a difference in shine though but it seems to just be that my ring gets dirty and the store models are so clean!
Where did you find those bands, if you don’t mind my asking? I’m having a hard time locating bezel settings in brick and mortar stores.

I like the 2nd band better.

I prefer the first one more. I like the sparkle of diamonds and I think the first one will sparkle more.

I have a band with channel set stones next to a solitaire engagement ring and have no clue the color grade on the .09ct stones in the band. It’s a great compliment next to my beautiful solitaire. I went with yellow gold; with smaller stones in white gold, you absolutely won’t see a difference. If you’re not sure, just pop in a department store- Macy’s etc – they carry average grade stones so you can get an idea what you’re looking at before visiting your jeweler.
@mermaids, I can set you up with my custom jeweler if it would help…they do beautiful work.

I’m not sure I like either option with your band. i like twisted eternity with radiant cuts

I think either option would look beautiful, it just depends on what look you want. If you want more bling, the first one would be it, but if you want only a little sparkle here and there, then the second. I love the bezel one but I’m kinda biased because I’m waiting on a similar one (from the same seller) to come in. Probably later today! Have you tried anything on in stores? This will give you a much better idea of what you prefer with your ring. Also, just so you know, my center diamond on my wedding ring is also an F and the channel sides (3-pointers) in my ring are G-H and you can’t tell any difference in color at all. Jewelers rarely ever use anything higher than that (unless requested) because it makes it more affordable and you really can’t tell the difference in stones that small. Pics just for reference –

The first one is from Master Jeweler on Etsy. I can’t remember what website I found the second one on, but Master Jeweler has a similar one as does James Allen
