    I like the second one because it matches but it is different so it won’t just blend in with your e-ring.

    I love the second one! It’s lovely! I think it would look great with your ering! Also I think that one makes more of an impact on it’s own, if there was ever a time when you didn’t want to wear your ering. It’s just more interesting than the first…

     

    Also I want to say I LOVE your ering! Love rose gold!

    I think I like the unique one, but something to consider…

    The unique band looks like it will sit taller on your finger, that might mean that it there will be a gap or that the stones could rub on one another when worn with your e-ring. I was looking at similar unique options and my jeweler basically told me that if I wanted a thicker/taller band, then it would need to have a notched shape to allow for the stone of my e-ring.

    @littlemissmango: I voted for the unique band, but honestly I would get both if money wasn’t an issue! I LOVE the second one! It’s stunning! But I have to agree that there is a chance that you might not love it with your e-ring, even if the wedding band is beautiful by itself. I vote that you buy both, because if you end up not loving the unique band with your e-ring you can have it as a beautiful RHR and still have the matching (and safe) ritani band for the wedding set. :] Love your choices, your rings will be absolutely lovely together, whatever you choose.

    I’m indecisive and they’re both gorgeous so I think if you can afford it you should get both πŸ™‚

    You E-Ring is absolutely amazing though! WOW

    I love the look of non-matching sets and somestimes the non-matching sets are the ones that can actually look better than the matching. I walked into my jeweler completely thinking I would get the matching band but walked out with something totally different that looked better with my ring!

    So! I say go for the custom bezel setting. If you are worried about the width of the engagement ring and wedding band being too different you can ask the etsy seller if they are willing to use smaller diamonds and that will shrink the width of the wedding band to better match you engagement ring. I like the wedding band to be slightly larger than the engagement ring personally. My e-ring is 1.8mm and the band is being made to 2mm.

    Aww!! He has good taste! 

    I really wanted something in rose gold, but it’s so hard to find around here, especially 18 k and my Fiance prefered it to the 14 (he is so picky, in a good way) 

    It’s so amazing to hear about all the guys hunting for perfect rings for their loved ones. 

    I definitely want to get a rose gold right hand ring some time down the road.

    Enjoy your ring and we wouldn’t mind seeing more pics πŸ™‚
