I'm slightly torn on a wedding band. I'm relatively recently engaged and I absolutely adore my Edwardian inspired three stone. I can't decide what wedding band to pair with it. I'm inclined to have a 3 pt. eternity band made similar to the Tiffany Embrace band pictured below. At the same time, I love a simple metal band! Do you think this eternity band is too large for my ring? IMG_3532.PNG IMG_4679.PNG

I think they both look really pretty. I probably like the gold band more, but the eternity band looks good too. Get both! Haha! Your engagement ring is beautiful!! What size are the stones?

A size 3.25! Enviable ring size and some serious finger coverage. I think a plain gold band looks best. Those stones need to be front and center with no distractions.

I prefer the gold band. I think the eternity band stones are too large and distract from your ering. I would go smaller.

What about an Edwardian style wedding band? (I'm not sure if there is an exact such thing but when I googled the phrase some lovely vintage bands with engraving popped up).

Another vote for the plain band... then you can add a smaller diamond band to the other side later on for "dressier" events. I love the combo of diamond-yellow gold- diamonds.

I would get both bands! I think your e-ring/YG band/eternity combo would look absolutely deadly. If you just want to buy one of them, honestly both look great but I’m a sucker for mixed metals so I’d go YG.

Oh honestly I love this idea. I might use the gold band as my spacer since I’d need one anyway

They both look lovely. I would get both as it is nice to change up the look of the set.

Here are a couple slightly better photos of the eternity band. My only issue with a smaller diamond band is just feel sometimes that when you go smaller than 3mm you don't get the same performance. I'm wondering about going with the people who have suggested to get both and either stack or change it up

If you think you might like the additional -- yet subtle -- visual interest of an engraved band, consider David Klass in LA. I don't know who does the engraving for DK, but we've seen some marvelously engraved bands & ring shanks from him here on PS. Here's a Facebook page of his with some examples of bands:

Definitely get both. I got my eternity when I had my first baby and almost always wear all three but I do mix it up depending on how I feel.

Doesn't Tiffany make this ring in a 2mm version? Might be worth trying before you decide. I think the 3mm is a bit too large for your beautiful engagement ring and takes away from it. I would definitely get two bands - one plain and one diamond - if you decide to go with a diamond band.

They do! For some reason I didn't love it, but here is a photo! IMG_4700.PNG

I agree with you, I much prefer this size over the smaller one.
Honestly, this is IMO perfect. And when you want to "bling down" the look, easy to switch to the gold band.

I would also get both, with the eternity in the bigger size. Usually I prefer the band not to overshadow the ering, but there is something about the bigger one that looks more balanced.

And I would wear all 3 with the plain gold band in the middle :kiss2:

Agree with everyone who says that the smaller eternity doesn’t work as well as the bigger for your ring. I think it’s because your 3 stone doesn’t have a huge mm difference between the three stones, so it’s a wall of bling anyway, and so the bigger eternity balances out very well. The smaller one is just getting swallowed.

I totally agree, the 2mm just looks odd with my ring!
