    Eek, that’s a difficult one…I think I like the pave matchy ring better. I can appreciate the workmanship and uniqueness of the scalloped one though too. I think I vote pave, then down the road (anniversary), get the scalloped band if you still want it.

     

    ETA you might not lIke the spinning of the half eternity ring. IMO, they’re a pita.

    Okay, at first I was all loving the first one thinking the second didn’t match as well. But then when I scrolled down and saw the side by side–I am all about the second, scalloped one. I love it!! It actually matches well and looks beautiful next to your e-ring.

    I think they’re both super pretty! You can’t go wrong. But I personally like the first one a lot more with your ring. The scallop would be pretty as a stack with the other, but alone I like the thin first band best!

    waterbaby:  I like the matching ring better but… They both look great! I know a girl who has a very similar set actually… She has 2 bands… One like the first and the other like the second! How about that? Is it impossible to get both?

    If you could get one as an anniversary present, I’d go with the pricier one now and the other later. (My husband let slip that he thinks early anniversary bands are silly… So I chose a blingier wedding band. I’m glad I did! I love my blingy band.)

    I love the thin band, personally. Both are beautiful but I feel the first band works best with your engagement ring. Best of luck on a tough choice!

    This is super tough as they both look great. To be honest I was leaning to the matching pave band until you did the side by side pictures and then I got confused as to which I liked better. I can understand how it was a hard choice for you, its not my ring and I cant decide which I like better myself. I think with either one, you will end up with an amazing set, however the fact that you had ring regret so soon after makes me think you should probably go with the first on. Sorry I couldnt be more help.

    I like the 2nd band better, but I’m a mismatched fan.  The first one looks very pretty too, it’s just that I prefer mismatched bands.

    I’m with Fizzy8 – is getting both a possibility?  Those would make a beautiful stack!

    Love your e-ring, by the way. I would choose the matching one. I am not always about matching, but in this cae, I would get two of the matching and wear one on each side… I am going to do that with my bands. They match each other but not my ring, haha! Also, it is hard to tell that the thicker band is not a 3/4 eternity. It probably won’t be noticeable unless it spins around. Both bands are pretty, though!
