So FI and I are going to look at wedding bands this weekend and I can’t decide what I want! We’re going to a place that custom makes their jewelry, so I need to describe what I want. I’ve tried on a few different styles before, but I am hoping to make a decision this weekend.
This is my ring..
And these are the two styles I can’t decide between:
pros – more tw in carats, can wear alone, classic look
cons – not enough bling for me – unless I get 2?!? 🙂
pros – gives the appeal of more bling, different style, looks like I have 2 bands
cons – less carat tw, can’t be worn alone
What do you all think?
I know it sounds weird I’m worried about the tw, but I can’t get it out of my head! -:-P

I personally just like the one band

If you want bling I would recommend a shared prong wedding band and not a channel set band. I originally thought I wanted channel set too. With the shared prong you see minimal metal and much more of the diamond.

I like the straight band too. It’s nice that you can wear it alone if you want to.

I like the first one better because you could wear it by itself if you ever needed to. You can always get just one for now and add another one for an anniversary 🙂

I like the first one as well. You’re right – you may want to wear the band by itself sometimes.

i prefer just one band – the wear-alone factor is always a nice option

I like the first one better. But I agree with roxy that a shared prong is going to give you the bling you’re looking for!

Here is an example of the shared prong band. I like being able to wear just my wedding band too, so I would pick one as well.

I love the first choice! I was in a similar situation and I picked a ring like your top option and got two, one for each side of my solitaire, and had one of the bands soldered to the e-ring. I love it because I can wear just the band or the whole set (which I usually do).

I prefer the first style, I love the look of a plain solitare with a diamond band! I’ve seen some gorgeous ones, but I’m generally not a big fan of the wraps..

Ditto Roxy821. I think a shared prong would look great!

This is always my solution when I can’t decide: get both! I know, not helpful lol. I think it depends on how you want to wear it. If you won’t ever take off your e-ring, then go with the wrap. If you’ll want to wear the wedding band alone sometimes, get #1. Both are gorgeous.

I think I am the minority but I like the second picture. But I am all about the bling factor.

Out of those two pics you posted I like the single band…
