Beautiful ring!! To answer your question, I think it looks AMAZING by itself and I see what you mean by the stones and the “top” and “bottom” bands. I also, however, totally understand the part about wanting something from your Fiance and I would get a band. IMO I love bands that dont sit flush with the engagement ring, but thats your preference! I think if you decided to get a custom contoured band, that you would want to get one for the top and bottom and it might be too bulky, but thats just me!

I think something like this would look great with it! You could always go to a jeweler and get their opinion on the wedding band also!

i think it looks absolutly beautiful! perhaps he could get you a ring for your right hand? so that when you get married you could get married with that ring?

Gorgeous ring!  I would want a wedding band just so I didn’t have to answer the question “are you married or engaged?” all the time.  I think a super-thin band would be gorgeous, either plain or with small diamonds.

You don’t NEED a wedding band. My Future Sister-In-Law has one ring that was her engagement ring and wedding band (It’s a pretty thick ring with lots of diamonds like yours and she never gets asked about her “status”, the ring itself kind of looks like it’s an engagement ring  with two wedding bands on either side already).

However, I can understand wanting something from your Fiance… perhaps go to some jewelry stores and try some things on, or perhaps get something custom made? You might find something you love!

Alternatively you could wear this ring on one hand and your wedding band on the other. That way they could compliment each other, but they don’t have to match perfectly or look great side by side.

I agree with Deathbydesign.  You definitely don’t NEED a wedding band.  My mom has an 8mm thick plain setting holding a solitaire, and she chose to have only that ring.  I also love her idea of having rings that compliment each other being worn on different hands.

You could consider having a band that you could wear alone.  (Think Kate Middleton. . .normally when you see photos of her, she’s wearing either her sapphire or her plain gold band on her left finger, but not both.)  There are some inexpensive plain 14kt white gold bands at Walmart for around $60.  Maybe you could get matching/coordinating bands and have them engraved.  Also, pompeii3.com is a company that makes quality jewelry at a fair price.  Just two options that wouldn’t break the bank.

Another option would be to have 2 bands made so that they wrap around the front and the back of your e-ring.  It would probably look more balanced that way, and it certainly would be blingy!
