    @brlabrat:  First off, I LOVE your e-ring! It’s so gorgeous! IMHO, I’m not sure either band actually goes with your e-ring.  I feel like the blue is not only too thick, it’s also almost takes away from the beauty of your e-ring.  And while I like and prefer the first band, something still doesn’t feel quite right.  What kind of metal is your e-ring?  My instinct is to do a plain band in the metal of your e-ring, maybe with a bit of curvature or design to it if you’d like.  But between the two, I’d definitely go with #1!

    @brlabrat:  I like the second band a lot better but, why couldnt the jeweler simply make it a little thinner than 3 mm if that’s a concern? 3 mm isn’t all that wide, FYI. That’s what my band is! Good luck. Love your sapphire!

    I would prefer a plain band so your ering stands out. However, I think the one you have on is a little too thick. Is it possible to get it thinner?

    Gorgeous engagement ring! – I absolutely love colored gemstones and nontraditional rings. I personally like the second band (the cast one). I too am a simple band girl. 🙂

    I like the way that the second band sits more flush against the e-ring, and like another member said, could you get it thinner if that is what’s bothering you?

    But either way, both look great!

    IMO, the first one distracts from your e-ring because it is so different and doesn’t quite fit it. The second one would be much better.

    The first one doesn’t look right with your ring. I agree that it takes away from the engagement ring because it is so different. Maybe if it did sit flush with the ring then it would be the one. I like how the custom band is notched to fit the ring. Maybe you could have some sapphires put into the band to help it not be so plain.

    @brlabrat:  Good choice, I think with the look of your gorgeous e ring it makes sense to go with the plain band.


    I hope you will post pictures when it arrives.
