I’m curious to see if the Bee’s opinion will be what I think. (Also I kinda want to show off the photoshop skills I learned today, I think it turned out decent :P) If anyone else wants me to try to put a ring on their hand let me know I’m kinda having fun with them.
My Engagement Ring is 4mm wide and palladium
Band 1: palladium 4mm $408
Band 2: palladium 4.5mm $458
Band 3: palladium 6mm $950
Band 4: 14K white gold (made with palladium) $670 It may also be available in palladium, but I haven’t heard back from the jeweler yet and I don’t know what it would cost.

@Eckle: i chose 1 b/c it also has milgrain. i think 3 and 4 would be too much crisscross.

@Eckle: none of them, they are all too wide and have too different etchinngs/designs. None compliment your ering. I would go with the first one but only if you wear it alone.
Sorry. Just my 2c

I agree with PP. I don’t really like any of them. I don’t think they compliment your ring at all.

@Eckle: I’m not really digging any of these, unfortunately. I think a plain band would look very nice, though!

@DuckEBee: Thanks for at least being nice about it.
I didn’t think I’d get all dislike. I mean I know most people here are into the thin delicate bands, but that’s just not my style. I’ve got stubby fingers and delicate rings just make my hands look that much more crude. I think plain is kinda boring, especially if I want to wear it by itself sometimes. I’m not a fan of pave, and from the looking around I’ve done my stone color is pretty much impossible to match as green sapphires that deep are rare. What would the people who hate them all do? I haven’t bought anything yet so I’m curious to see if there is a better option out there.

@Eckle: I’d go to a jeweler and see what they suggest (or have something made that matches the band on the e-ring exactly, but that can get costly).

@DuckEBee: I’m losing my job at the end of next week, so that’s not really an option.

Agreeing with PPs that none of these complement your ering. I think the reason a thinner band would go here is because the twisted band is really like two thinner ones. The proportions of the thicker band is off when combined with the ering, and IMO the designs clash.
If you are intent on going with one of these, why not just wear the wedding ring on the left hand and move the ering to the right for everyday wear? Contrary to popular belief they don’t have to be worn together at all. I’d go with #1 in that case.

@Eckle: I prefer number 4. Something about the engraving on your e-ring really meshes nicely with that band. I’m having a hard time putting my finger on exactly why I like that one, but I think it matches the best.

I really like the fourth one. It fits the vibe of your engagement ring

Nice Photoshopping skills!
I’d go with the fourth one.

What about one that criss crosses but doesnt also have the detail like the 4th one does? I think that’s a happy medium. I also dont like all 4 of them but I know from previous posts you have a unique taste so you would want something different than what a lot of bees might say (ie: not a plain band or an eternity band). OR what about a band that has some of the same stones as your e-ring?
