- Wedding: November 1999
i have a 1.6 round solitaire on a plain band, and i cant decide between a channel enhancer or diamond band(s).
i orginally have been long in love with this channel type enhancer below because it is double sided, actually accentuates my solitaire without competing with it while still being eye catching, seems a little bit more modern, and was at the budget limit for my band.
BUT, since i have been doing so much looking around, i found pics of gorgeous double sided diamond bands like below, and now im confused. technically, this type of double side enhancer is out of budget. but FI says we could just start with one diamond band and get the 2nd side added at first anniversary, and that way it could be back in budget for the wedding. BUT i feel like this type is a little more mature than my personality, it would compete with my solitaire, and ive actually always been drawn towards double sided enhancers over single bands.
the band is more diamond, where the channel enhancer is more metal. i have an overwhelming feeling that the diamond band is more bridal, yet, my conflicting thought is that the channel enhancer is very bridal too. i just dont want to get something that i will grow to sort of lament and wish id gotten the other.
should i be fine with just a single band for now, even though i dont care for the look of it and stick it out for a year? (this means my wedding photos will just be one band!)
Any pics of either style would be greatly appreciated. and ill add a poll too.
