Ladies! Did you try to keep your band the same style as your E-Ring? Or did you get a totally different band? My ring is a center dark blue sapphire surrounded by a double-halo of smaller diamonds (pictured below). I toyed with a diamond/sappire band, but I felt it would take away from the dominant sapphire on the E-Ring. Now I’m thinking a full diamond band with larger stones as I decided I kinda want some bling… Opinions, comments, and photos are greatly desired! 🙂

gorgeous ring!! My first wedding set is matching a simple solitaire with wedding band. My ring I’m currently designing now is definitely going to be blinged out and I plan on wearing a simple band with it. I want my ring to do the talking

I wanted my band to match my engagement ring so I only looked at rings that I felt matched. I also have a sapphire engagement ring but I didn’t feel my wedding band needed sapphires to match.
With your ring I do think that a sapphire wedding band might take away from the centerstone. A diamond band would look lovely.

I mismatched. My Engagement Ring is a twisted rope band, and my wedding band is a bubble and breath. They go together but I still have very different opitions when I go seperate.

My engagement ring had a band to match it, and since it was such an unusual shape, I bought it. The E ring looks much more substantial with the band alongside, so it made sense for me.
I do think you can get away with a thoughtful mismatch and am strongly considering adding an opal band since that is FIs and my birthstone
(full disclosure, that’s the ad for the ring, not my ring, hand, or FI)

I got a simple straight band to go with my halo ring. They don’t really match but I love them together. I also never had them soldered so sometimes I wear just the band.

I got the the matching band with my ering. I didn’t realize at first that they wouldn’t sit flush and would have a gap. Happy accident since now I know I want a stack and will wear something mismatched between them. Just need to figure out what, and of course wait till I actually am allowed to wear the band

Mine do not match. I love that my band is more unique and that I can wear it alone too!

Mine match, but I was considering something with a little color instead of all diamonds. But since my ring is kind of an odd shape, I went with a matching one that just happened to fit, even though it’s for a totally different ring

Mine don’t match! Ring is white gold and my band is rose gold.

My ring does have a matching band but I didn’t care for it much and it didn’t come with my engagement ring. I think the band we picked isn’t matchy-matchy but still coordinates well.

My wedding band isn’t matchy matchy but I feel it complements well! My engagement ring is an emerald cut with a French cut halo and band. And my wedding band is alternating diamonds and tiny turquoise cabochons. They stones in the band aren’t set the same way as the stones in my engagement ring, and to me it makes them seem different while still looking good together….if that makes any sense. It’s kind of unnoticeable unless you’re looking for it, but it makes the overall aesthetic balanced while not matching too annoyingly well.
Your ring is so gorgeous, I love it!!

Mine are different. Plain ering band and channel wedding band

I prefer matching but it’s a personal choice. I also knew I’d never want to wear them separate.

I have a more classic style, so I like mine matching!
