Would you add a third band? Poll and pics!

    Yes! It wouldn't be too overpowering and would still fit the more minimalist aesthetic you want.

    No, it would bump you up into "too much" if you're going for minimal.

    Obligatory other.

     I think your current set is very pretty. It doesn’t NEED to be added to, but since your fingers are so long (jealous) you have lots of space up to your knuckle to add a third ring. I like that the plain rose one would never come off.

    I personally love ring stacks, but I also don’t want it to look “too much.” I plan to add another band to my set eventually!

    In your case, you can add another band because your bands are thin.  If your bands were thick, the bands will be close to your knuckle.

    A third band would look awesome with your set! I love the symmetry of the diamond band in the middle. Maybe a 2mm milgrain band? Something that’s plain-ish but has some personality. Please post photos if you decide to add a third ring!

    dianaj17 :  I think it would look good. Considering how much finger length you have to work with, personally I think what would look even better would be the addition of a 3-4mm engraved, maybe floral, rose gold band.

    Agree with PPs, since your fingers are long you can absolutely add another band without it looking crowded.

    I am jealous of your finger length! I am tall but somehow have small hands & feet!!

    I love your set now. 

    If you really want to, get a third band! You could always keep it the way it is and get another band down the road for anniversaries, children, special occasionns, etc. 

    I’m super jealous of your long fingers too! My ering and wedding band combined are maybe 2.5mm and that’s all I can fit 🙁 I have such small fingers.

    Totes! I love a good stack! I think I would go for something whimsical and swirly/earthy, or mix my metals. But this is entirely my personal preference. Your set is also lovely as is.

    I’m in the same boat bee! Both my engagement ring and wedding band come to 4mm together also (each being 2mm) and while I wanted to go dainty/minimalist route when we were married last April…I’ve kept thinking that I want my wedding set to be a bit more substantial. We’ve placed an order for a 4mm ring as my anniversary gift and I couldn’t be more excited!! 

    Here is my current set:

    Here is my anniversary band that I plan on placing between my wedding band and engagement ring:

    I say go for it! I think 3 bands would look really beautiful and not at all over powering. I agree with a PP that there is somethign nice about a plain band that you wouldnt regularly take off. Love it!

    Go for it bee!! You have tons of finger space and your hands are thin enough to be able to stack 3 comfortably.

    I also have a plain band e-ring and I just added a 3rd band. My bands are a bit thicker than yours and my fingers are also much shorter than yours LOL but it works somehow.

    You can definitely add a plain third band. I wear mine the same way and for the same reason you mentioned. I wear my plain wedding band on bottom and it never comes off.

    Yes, your rings would look great with a stack! I think you should consider instead of another plain band, a thin beaded or twisted one… it still looks minimalistic but adds a bit of visual interest and I think they’re super cute. I’m considering one like this myself…
