Band, or no band? That is the question...

So now the question is, should I try to get a wedding band? If so, what do you think it should look like? Everyone here where I live is pretty traditional, they think you "need" a wedding band to show that you're not just engaged but you're now married. I think that's a load of bs and it's up to you if you want to wear one or not. What do you ladies think? I love this ring, so FI is buying it regardless lol I just don't really know how I feel about a wedding band. I don't want to take away from the look of the ring, and it has a gable (That's what the lady in the store called it?) kinda underneath the stone, so a band won't slide underneath it, but I'm willing to get one custom made... I can't make up my mind on this one, I need help! lol
PS: This is (kinda/maybe/notreally) what the ring looks like from the side:
The little scroll part underneath the stone is what I was told was a "gable". I have no idea so I'm taking that lady's word for it lol

Like you, I didn't want to take away from my ering with a band. I really wanted to find something but was hesitant cause my ering is so unique (for around my small home in Cape Breton anyway). I ended up finding one that somehow suits my ering perfectly and I love it so much that I try it on about once a week with my ering just to remember what it looks like!
If you really don't want a band definately stick to your guns, but if you're undecided I think you could definately find something that you would love just as much as your ering.

Also, my ring is an antique and not shaped like modern rings...so no wedding band I looked at worked. Finally I found a very delicate antique curved wedding band. It's very fine with a delicate design.
The curve of the band did not match the curve of the ring, so I took it to my fav jeweler and he bent the band to match my ring. It's very low profile and does not cover allot of the design on the side of the ring, which is one of my fav things about my e-ring.
This might be an option for you...or you can just get a simple band for your left hand and wear your e-ring on your right hand whenever you feel like changing things up....that way you can have both.
