Wedding Wednesday: I Need Your Advice About My Wedding Ring!

I showed you all my engagement ring right after Travis proposed, but now I’m stumped when it comes to my wedding band.  Here’s why…

My engagement ring did not come as part of a set, and because of it’s super-low setting (the diamond sits right on my finger), we realized right away that my wedding band would need to be customized.

After trying on a number of wedding rings, I settled on a simple white-gold piece that would be easy to alter.  We’re going to notch it out so that it sits flush against my engagement ring, and we’ll also round off the edges a little bit so that it mimics the band on my engagement ring.  So what’s the problem, you ask?

I’m not sure how wide the band should be!  As it is, the wedding band is 2mm wide and my engagement ring is just over 1.5mm wide.  Take a look:

At first, I was sure that I wanted them to be the exact same width, but the more I look at it, the more I’m wavering in my decision…

Basically, I am totally stumped!  I’d love your opinion on this— so what do you think?


Should I leave the wedding band a little thicker or do you think it should match my engagement ring exactly?  Have you ever had to customize a piece of jewelry?  Will you (or did you) get your engagement ring and wedding ring as a set?  Help me out by discussing it in the comments!

    The Chilean trend is to have SUPER thick wedding bands. Now that Im used to it, I really have grown to like it! I think that the way yours looks now is perfect, because it’s really just a little bit bigger. Beautiful!

    have you thought of maybe a ring guard or maybe if you have a favorite gemstonstone, getting two eternity bands with that stone and your engagement ring in the middle.
