Would this match my simple princess cut solitaire e-ring? I’d opt for the popular channel set with princess cut diamonds but I’m paranoid enough as it is with only one diamond on my hand, lol. I’m just worried it might look off, but I really do love the elegant simplicity of it. If anyone else have non-diamond wedding band suggestions (besides plain…I think I’d like some kind of detailing), I’d love to see it!

I think that ring would complement your e-ring well. Since the band on your e-ring is plain, it will be nice that your wedding band has some detail to it. My e-ring has channel set diamonds and sapphires, but my wedding band is very simple and plain with no design to it. So your situation would be switched. But I think it will look great together!

I think it will look great! Both my e-ring band and my wedding band are ornate, and sometimes I wish they were different – like yours! I think these two will look great together.

I think they will look great … but I do suggest taht you go try rings on somewhere — even if you plan to buy it online, it’s so different to put them on your finger next to your ring. Try to put on one that looks similar, or at least has something on the band so you know what it will look like! Have fun!

I think they’ll look fine , I agree with HumarockBride to find something like it juts to try on before you order. Just so you’ll know what it’ll look like.

I’m going to say no (so sorry to be the lone dissenter). Design-wise, your e-ring is all about being clean and linear. The diamond is at a right angle to the band. The wedding band you like is all about being diagonal and detailed. They might look fine together, but they won’t "match" per se. If you want soemthing that matches I would look for something simple and linear like your e-ring.

I appreciate the feedback, especially your honesty snmcdowell! =) I suppose ‘match’ might have been the wrong word…I was curious more if it would I realize now I probably won’t have a concrete answer until I can actually try something on. The ring is online and I haven’t seen any engraved bands in the stores I"ve popped into with Fiance…I’ll try looking harder. Thanks for the comments all!

I think they would go well together. The wedding band has a bit of pizzazz, which is neat!

I have a similar e-ring (except it is round and the band is thinner). I did not want a diamond wedding ring as I didn’t want it to compete with my e-ring too much and I like the simplicity and clean lines of a non diamond ring.
I went with this wedding ring and it looks lovely together. The millgrain pattern is not nearly as noticable in person as it is on the picture.
I personally feel like the pattern on the ring you have picked out may draw attention away from your e-ring a little if it is too noticable (it’s hard to tell from the picture). I’m also not entirely sure if it matches. But obviously, this is about what you like, not what I like!

I am very often "Miss Match" (EVERYTHING has to match for me, bra & undies, shoes/purse, jewelry metals, etc.) but I have to say I really like those 2 rings together. Something about a simple band with a diamond paired with an ornate band — it works for me!
Is it possible for you to try it on first, or if you can’t will the jeweler’s return policy allow for you to get a refund if you decide against it?
In any case I think the bottom line is if you love it, do it! You are the one who wears it every day so it’s most important that you like it.

I know you said you want something simple with no diamonds but what about something like this that has tiny diamonds? It would add a LOT of sparkle and you can never have enough of that!

Just a thought – the channel set is a really stable setting. But regardless, if you dont want it – go for texture!
This link it to my husband’s ring – mine is a very similar texturing on a beautifl thin band.

Go for the channel-set diamonds! I tried some bands on like that last week and they were so sparkly!!

I think the band would match. However, the rings that Brandonbride posted a photo of would add a lot of light to compliment your e-ring.
I tried bands on yesterday as I was having my ring resized, and the jeweler kept commenting how much he liked the sparkly band with my ring. I like it too, except that I want my wedding band to be a perfect fit to my FH. Also, because the diamond on the band are so small, it keeps the cost of the ring, if that is important in the deciding factor.
But for certain, go try them on. There is no way to tell for sure what looks best until you see them together.

I just read this post and *i’m sorry* I really agree with *snmcdowell* on this one! The style of that band just doesn’t really complement the modern, clean lines of your Ering. I think your Engagement Ring is beautiful (i"m totally partial to the princess cut!). My wedding band has prong-set princess cut diamonds and sometimes it is just not practical. So I also have a channel set ring that I wear sometimes.
I really think you should consider the channel set band that you mentioned. It really is very sturdy, it doesn’t snag on anything and it would be a really nice, subtle complement your beautiful Engagement Ring.
Here are some pics to give you an idea…
