Lovely ring!! And from the pics I don’t see anything wrong with the band. It would be easier to give a fair opinion if you showed a picture of the rings where they are going to sit though.

My vote is for the band! Looks beautiful together but ultimately do what feels best for you.

I really like the two together. I vote for a wedding band like that.

I agree with the PP. I think the band looks really nice with it, and it makes it clear that your rings are wedding jewelry.

rrroxanne:  I really like the band that you have found, but it’s really down to personal preference.

For me, I really like what my wedding band symbolises. I like that it’s there to show people (myself included!) that I’m married now. It just makes me happy!

For my job there are also times when I cannot wear my engagement ring and I love being able to at least still have my wedding band to wear by itself, even though it has a slight curve to it (as would the one you are looking at, I suspect). Are there times in your life where you think you might not be able to wear your e-ring, such as during travelling, hobbies, work etc?

I would be more inclined to recommend you go with a band, rather than without. Having your Fiance put in on your hand during your wedding ceremony is a special thing and gives it great sentimental value. If you don’t love wearing it afterwards then you can save it for special occasions but if you don’t have it, you’ll never be able to get one in the future that’s really been with you since the start of your marriage. It really depends whether you’re the type of person who cares about that though.

Beautiful e-ring, by the way. Looove the delicate halo and split shank 🙂

I think it looks pretty with the band. I also think it would look awesome with a scalloped white and black diamond band such as this:

rrroxanne:  I had the same problem as you. My solution was to wear my engagement ring on my right hand and my wedding ring (which is a stand alone ring not just a band) on my left ring finger. I could have just stayed at the one ring but my husband preferred to give me something new for our vows and I’m not one to turn down vintage jewellery! I personally couldn’t give two hoots about ‘looking married’ and the more I thought about it the more I preferred not to be showing my marital status on my finger. Do whatever works for you. I think that band looks just fine with your ring, but if you don’t love it then don’t feel obliged to buy it I just because it’s been the done thing for a few decades.
