    The two bands is too much. I think the 3rd is best. the 4th is too big.

    Anonette:  I really can’t tell the difference between the last two. They look the same to me. Do you have some other pictures?

    I should add that I like the option of wearing the more substantial band alone if you want. So with that in mind, I’d say go with 3 or 4.

    I like the bookend bands.  However, I would try to find smaller ones that match the diamonds in your ering for a more cohesive look.

    Go for the 4th one. I hate to admit it but I’m a bit of a “size queen”. Lol. If you have the option of getting a big and beautiful eternity band that will be dazzling alone why not? But, second choice, I would go for the two Tiffany ones. Those are the cutest option.

    I like the 3.5 and 4mm but the 4 looks so wide like it could be uncomfortable berween fingers so I voted for 3.5. Maybe then latet add a thin band on an anniversary for a stacked look 😉

    I love the first choice. I’m a sucker for thin bands

    The last 2 options look as though they might be uncomfortable. I like the first 2 options a lot and think your e-ring is gorgeous!

    I went third, but I’d probably go a little bit smaller, in that style. Maybe 3mm?

    Both! People forget that eternity bands were originally called anniversary bands. I say get the two slim bands – but not the jazz bands because with your engagement ring that’s just way too much going on. Then get the eternity for an anniversary, or to commemorate the birth of a child, or..you get the point. Here’s mine.

    Anonette:  Thank you!! I would get the thin bands over the Jazz bands because I think like doberman said, you can mix it up a bit more and play around with stacking.. 😉
