DH had my ering custom made with his own design which made shopping for bands difficult. We ended up going custom for the band. I personally don’t like  a gap between the two rings, but I also don’t like the visible curve in a band. So, we had the jeweler make it sit flush to my ering and only curve the inner portion of the ring to make it fit snugly together.

I thought about a sapphire band or alternating sapphires and diamonds, but ultimately decided to just have diamonds in my band so that my center stone would stand out. I had the band created the same width and the same size diamonds as in the band of my ering.

Both my rings were custom made and I knew going into it that my e ring would not allow for a band to sit flush which I was perfectly fine with and actually prefer a gap! I’m definitely in the minority though. I never wanted my bands to match and wanted the option to wear my wedding band alone which hasn’t happened too much. I do however have a plain band being made at the moment that will be slightly wider than my e ring for those days when I don’t want so much bling.

I got the matching band without having done much research. Afterward, I decided it was too matchy/simple for me, so I made a stack ๐Ÿ˜‰

Mine match and I LOVE them.  I’ve seen a lot of unique bands combined on other people and think that some of them are done very tastefully and look very elegant. Its all bout personal preference.

I went with matching. My e-ring is so dainty, I didn’t want anything to overpower it! I love the mismatched look, though.

I decided to not match my ering… but together they will match my hubbys. His ring will be white gold with rose gold- so between my two rings- we match each other! ๐Ÿ˜

Mine don’t match but I didn’t like the completely plain gold bands yet didn’t want a diamond band because I knew I wanted a diamond eternity ring so I went with this patterned one

Your ring is beautiful! I love double halos. My ering was designed with a certain (sparkly) wedding band in mind so that influenced the shape of the band. Then I decided to go with a plain wedding band and a spacer. I thought I wanted more bling to my set but the plain band just spoke to me so much that we changed our plans.

I think you should try on a variety of bands with your ring and see what talks to you the most. You may find that what looks best on your hand is different what you were originally thinking.
