    Since my e-ring was stolen, we are considering not replacing it -- or if we do it will be a few years down the road.

    So, I've been thinking about getting a more unique wedding band instead.

    My only question is whether or not one of these wedding bands would look good with an anniversary band or if they are better as a stand-alone wedding ring?

    I think I do want the anniversary band eventually -- but not sure if I go with one of these as my wedding ring, how they would look together. I think the anniversary band would have to be very plain...

      Those bands ae goreous!! I'm all for unique bands, but I tend to agree.. your anniversary ring would probably have to be somewhat toned down. In a few years, when you do look.. maybe you could work with a jeweler to help create something that'll go well with a band like that

        I love the second one! I think you can do a think eternity band for your anniversery ring.

          I like them. Could you switch it to your right hand when you get an anniversary band? It might have to get resized though & those don't look easy to resize. My right hand is 1/2 size bigger. maybe that's just me.

          I think that band would look best alone. You could possible add a plain ring, but I don't think it would add anything to the look so doesn't seem worth it.

          Another idea is getting the other ring for your right hand.

            That might be the best option. Maybe a jeweler could design something simple that won't clash with the band. Or the eternity band like Amy suggested. I guess it will be hard to really tell until I see the ring on my own hand since I have small fingers.

            Hhmm.. hadn't thought about the right hand, but I don't think I want to do that, at least not with the wedding ring. I guess I could just forego the anniversary band altogether for my ring finger and wear it as a right-hand ring. That's probably the easiest option -- since it seems these rings probably won't look so good with anything else on the same finger.

            So many decisions.

              I think those wedding bands will look better on their own. I agree with Morgan, you can put the anniversary ring on another finger.

                  Thanks! The more I look at them, the more I love them! I think I want the first one!! They are really not bad price-wise either, even if we go with platinum.

                    Wow, they're gorgeous! I agree that the ring would look best by itself, or if you do want an anniversary band, it should be a very simple one. Let us know what you end up getting!
