    Wow your e-ring is really pretty!! I like your set now, but if you got the diamond band and oput it inbetween the two bands now….it would look amazing!

    I think the diamond band would look fantastic with it.  How is the exchange policy at the jeweler where you got your band?

    I think since your e-ring doesn’t have one large center stone and is a bit more subtle with the diamonds, the diamond wedding band would complement it really well. But then again, I’m always the girl who opts for more bling no matter what 🙂

    @s.renea9:  ITA, this is what I was going to say. I definitely would NOT exchange the gold band for a diamond one now – I would wait and get a diamond band at a later time to add to the set. I think as it is now it looks more “complete” with the gold band than it would with a thin diamond band, but as a combo it would be stunning.

    VERY pretty rings by the way, your ering is so unique and beautiful!

    I personally think the plain band looks more classic, and so goes with your (amazing!) engagement ring better. Too glitzy a wedding band might also be distracting. (I almost always prefer plainer wedding bands, though, so I’m a little biased.)

    I would stick with the millgrain and see about having a custom matching band made at some point in the future using the gold from the millgrain band.  I personally think the millgrain takes away from the loops and whirls of the antique ring and I would be afraid to put modern set diamonds next to antique set diamonds because to me they just look mismatched.

    I also have an antique engagement ring and I am torn between a tiny eternity band or getting a thicker eternity band and wearing it on my right hand since nothing will lie flush with my engagement ring and I don’t want to have it soldered since it’s an antique.

    That is such a unique design on the antique ring!! I’ve never seen anything like it – gorgeous!! I think it looks great actually. The band is subtle enough not to take away from your e-ring, but it is still beautiful and classic. I love it.

    I say more bling… you can wear the diamond band in between your e-ring (which is beautiful) and the plain band.

    I love your e-ring!  I think the milgrain band doesn’t quite match.  Perhaps a floral-engraved/etched gold ring would match a little better and still be more in the price point you want?

    I think some bees have some from Etsy, hopefully they see this and are willing to share 🙂

    I personally only like a diamond band next to an e-ring that already has diamonds on its band, but it’s hard to say without seeing them next to each other. You should get whatever YOU like best though.
