    I did this with my first marriage. I had a very vintage style ring with lots of detail all around the band and I I felt that putting a "band" with it would have taken away from my e-ring. I didn't think there was anything wrong with that and nobody ever seemed to question it. I think you'll be fine.

      I also use my e-ring as my wedding band. My e-ring is very thick and it has emerald cut diamonds which made it very difficult to find a band that would match and not be too thick. I opted on getting one made because I thought the ring stood out much more alone and looked a lot better.

      Your ring is very pretty and thick, so even if you don't find an e-ring, the ring alone will look just fine.

        Very unique ring. I think it'd be kinda cool to just have your e-ring also serve as the wedding band. If you google it, you will find lots of sites that offer turquoise wedding bands...

          I'm in the same boat-my e-ring is not symmetrical and has diamonds facing out on the sides of the ring so finding a wedding ring that compliments has been really tough. I finally opted with a really thin band I can wear in situations where my e-ring isn't practical.

          I think adding much to your ring would distract from how unique it is. If you feel compelled to have separate band I think the idea of wearing it on your other hand is fitting.

            Yes, I think that your ring is such a statement, you may just want to leave it how it is.

              You ring is amazing! It looks like an engagement ring and wedding band already! Maybe have another piece of jewelery in lieu of a wedding band!

                Your ring is so beautiful and unique, the turqoise idea is cute though. My engagement ring is custom made with a wide band on the top left and a wide band below on the right holding my center stone in place. I personally and not going to have a wedding band just because I do not want to take away from the affect. I truly believe it is a personal preferance though. I have a lot of friends who had the shadow band as their wedding band to not take away from the engagement ring. Good luck! Cannot wait to hear or see what you decide!

                    I really like your ring. I think it's great on it's own and totally works as both!
