First, here's a few views of my engagement ring. It's a round diamond with 6 small channel-set diamonds on each side. The band is 18K white gold. At first, I was thinking about just getting a plain, white gold band (which I still might do.) On the other hand, I also like the idea of a band with alternating channel-set diamonds and sapphires. My birthstone is diamond. DF's is sapphire. Plus, our wedding colors are blues. So it would be symbolic (and prettier than a plain band, I think!) I haven't been able to find one that matches well in nearby jewelry stores (except for a fairly expensive one at Tiffany's that's platinum instead of white gold.) My engagement ring was custom-made. Getting a band custom-made to match the e-ring is an option, but I'd prefer to not spend that much. A band I ordered from bluenile.com was just delivered today. It's very reasonably priced, but I'm not sure if the match is good enough. It's 18K white gold with 7 sapphires and 8 diamonds. Here's the ring: And here are some shots of my hand with the two rings together: This shot shows how much larger the e-ring stones are. The rings aren't centered correctly, though. The diamonds on the e-ring actually go down a little further on each side than the stones on the band, but the band stones still go down far enough to give the illusion that they go all the way around. Here's the back of the rings. They're pretty close to the same width. The e-ring is just slightly wider. The thickness is about the same, but the surface of the band is flat, while the e-ring is rounded: DF is a little wary of buying my band from the internet. He thinks it would be much better to buy from a local store or have it custom-made. I think this one might match well enough. It's not as perfect a match as a custom band would be, but I think it's good enough. Any opinions are welcome!!
