Straight might be doable. I say try on a couple styles, even if they’re not the exact ones you want, to just get a feel for different looks ๐Ÿ™‚ Come back with a couple pics if you can!

Why have a wedding band at all? That ring is so beautiful with all the details I think adding another band to it might take away from that

I love your engagement ring, so much history. I think straight would look okay! Go to the store and try a few on and see how you feel, even post pictures of that here. I’m sure there are also curved ones that would fit against it as well, like the one I have below. And then if none of them suit your taste, perhaps dishing out the extra dough for something custom may be your best bet, afterall, you will be wearing it forever! Good luck!

@SeeingDaisies:  Love the pics you posted ๐Ÿ™‚ I was also looking at vintage-y engraved wedding bands. The first one is great. And yes, most jewellry stores let you take photos. I always ask, but no one has said I cannot take a photo.

@SeeingDaisies:  Actually now that I see a band with it, it doesn’t take away from it at all (looking at the second to last picture) ..I think a straight band with etching would look beautiful with it!! Smile

So our erings are remarkably similar! The filigree is different and my center stoner isn’t raised (I don’t have prongs) but they are the same shape. This is the wedding band we had made – it’s whitgrilled and was about $1000 to have custom made to the shape of my ring.

So nice your Fiance saved this beauty from being melted for its gold.

 

I think straight would look great with your antique ring. Also, a curved one would look good too ๐Ÿ˜‰ Maybe something with stones and thin, like this type:

 

I also found out the custom route is quite expensive. You have to pay for the metal and stones, as well as the labour, and allow for the jeweler to make a profit. My custom contour band cost a lot, but it’s such a perfect result that it was worth it! ๐Ÿ˜‰

@Quicksand:  that

@SeeingDaisies:  I would buy a separate stand alone wedding ring that you can wear when you don’t want to wear your beautiful engagement ring. If your fingers are the same size, you could wear your wedding band on your right hand even.
