    I think a plain band would go nicest. A diamond band could make the whole thing look too busy, and your e-ring is gorgeous on its own. It exudes a unique, understated elegance, and a blingy band would detract from that, IMO.

    I think it would depend on the style of the sapphire and diamond band. If it has to many sapphires or if they are pretty big then yeah, it would be to much. But if there were small sapphire and diamonds with them, then no I think it would look lovely!

    I would go w. an ONLY diamond or ONLY sapphire eternity or half eternity band. IMO alternating diamonds/sapphires would be too busy. A thin plain metal band would also look nice.

    I think a small pave eternity band (in diamonds) would be complementary.

    I would probably go with a plain band because I really think that would look best with your ring.

    My sapphire ring has diamonds on the band so I found a band that is the exact same style from a different jeweler.  I also added my mother’s original wedding band which has 4 tiny diamond chips.

    I have a sapphire also, but the main center stone is the sapphire. and then there are diamonds all around it. i went with a diamond only band because 1. i didn’t want TOO many sapphires and 2. i didn’t want to take the attention away from the sapphire i already had. 🙂

    I would do all diamonds or plain, I think mixing stones on the wedding band is too busy with a mixed stone e-ring.  

    ETA: I usually wear my wedding band alone, only wear the e-ring when I’m going out somewhere, but if I planned on wearing them both together all the time, I would have gone with a smaller diamond band.  Mine can be overpowering sometimes when worn together, and I think a thin diamond band looks heavenly with a 3 stone!

    I’d go one stone or the other on the band, but not both. I also think plain white gold or platinum would look beautiful.

    Don’t rule anything out as “too busy” until you actually try it on with your e-ring.

     

    This thread reminds me of a Bee named Mrs.Charpentier… here is a pic of her set. If she had limited herself to just diamonds or only sapphires, her set wouldn’t be as stunning as it is. I think this is one of the loveliest examples of sapphires and diamonds together I’ve ever seen:

    @BelliniChic:  I love her set, too!  But it’s a single diamond band and single sapphire band, even though they’re soldered together.  I think bands with one type of stone look better than the alternating sapphire/diamond small stones, if that makes sense!  So actually, that could be the solution – get one of each and stack them Smile

    I would totally rock some more sapphires. I love them. I’m biased though, my e-ring is also sapphire and diamond.

    I have a sapphire and diamond e-ring and I love bling, so I went with a diamond eternity band. Also, a semi-eternity diamond band is nice too.

    BUT I’m loving all the pics of the sapphires with diamonds. All that blue looks amazing too:)

    Awe -blush- thanks for the lovely compliments ladies!! OP do let us know what you end up going with! Dont rule out options just because they are out of the ‘norm’ I had 2 jeweler. Tell me they would not make my wedding band for me because they didn’t like my idea and thought it would ruin the style of my ring ( say what?!? No joke…..) , so get what you love and go with your gut!!! Xo
