I am looking for a wedding band to pair with my double halo moissy ering. Here’s a picture of my ring:
I’m leaning towards a band that’s a semi-bezel with 3mm moissy OECs set in a half eternity, but I would add some delicate milgrained edges. The band that I am using for inspriation is this band: Queen of France Semi-Bezel by Joseph Schubach’s.
FI thinks that the band pictured above would be “too much” with my e-ring, and wants me to get a simple band with 3/4 pointers and 1.8mm in diameter to match exactly with my e-ring. I would prefer a band that stands out and can be worn alone.
Do you think that the OEC band would be too much??
If you have any ideas for bands please feel free to post! Thanks so much 🙂 🙂

I agree with your FI…they are both gorgeous rings, but don’t go together.

I’m not sure it’ll be “too much”, but it might sit weird with your ring. I tried on blingy bands w. my halo engagement ring and it just didn’t look right and led to a massive gap. Not a cute gap like I’m getting w. my thin wedding band.

if you love them together, that is all that matters.

I think a really simple, thin, micropave would look best

@FutureDrAtkins: I can understand wanting one that doesn’t match perfectly, but I don’t think that one would go with your engagement ring. It’s just “too much” as your title says.

I like the contrast of your band! I like that you could wear it as a stand-alone. My band is also a bigger band that can be worn alone, and I love it!
(Also, that is such a great picture of your Moissy! It’s so pretty and so shiny and so colorful… I have regressed to a 5 year old over here!)

I love both those rings. I won’t tell you how many times I’ve admired that semi-bezel ring. I think, though, that it would be a bit much with your ring. I think because your (gorgeous) ring is rather intricate, you’re best off keeping things simple with the band. I really like the idea of a thin pave band. In the end, though, you should go with what you love. The 3mm OECs WOULD make for a thinner ring than her’s (I think hers has 4mm OEC’s), so it wouldn’t compete as much.

I thought of getting a plain WG band as a “spacer” between the e-ring and the 3mm band. I do have a good amount of clearance under my halo. Hmm… I think you are all probably right though in that it won’t look right together. Drats, I really love that band!!!
I will probably end up with a hand engraved WG band as I still don’t want something that perfectly matches. I’ve also played with the idea of getting some purple sapphires or irradiated purple diamonds on a pave band.
Opinions are welcome!!

I think it might compete with your gorgeous ering. My thought is to find something that compliments or enhances the ering.

I say if you love it, go for it. I had the same issue, I really wanted a detailed milgrain band to go with the ring we picked but ended up with a straight milgrain band instead because it was a bit much.

I say get what you love, but I think your ring is so beautiful and should be the star of the finger if you know what I mean. This is an awesome RHR.

I think it’s too much bling and would look more like costume jewellery. I’d go with a plain thin band, but that’s just my style.

@FutureDrAtkins: FWIW, I have a friend with a ring that looks exactly like yours and she does not wear a band. I think it looks nice without.

@FutureDrAtkins: Very pretty, but i think it would be a bit overpowering. Agreed with pps- I’d go with thin micropave band.
