    IMO #1 and #2 are not very unique. Not a fan of #4. So is choose eaither 3 or 5. to make it easy though, I choose 5 because it probably has a band to go with it. But I really do like #3 better.

    I really like the swirl but then it all comes down to personal taste.

    Oh wow! They’re all beautiful except the Tiffany IMHO – it’s just not my taste, personally. Tough choices, I love 1, 2, and 4 but I’m leaning towards the Kirk Kara!

    I love the 5th one (the Tiffany), per your requirements I think the Tiffany is the way to go (well, a custom version since you want a few modifications).  I love how different-looking it is and I think it would be amazing with two bands!

    I differently like #3 and would have chosen it myself if we found it when we looked back in July because I have uniqueness.

    i can only see #2 matching nicely with a band.  the others will probably need custom bands.

    as for unique and flashy, i like the last one for that.

    @MissKittyKat:  I think 4 is very interesting but wonder if the figure 8 will make a gap with the bands. Love Simon G but don’t like 3 at all!

    To be honest, all of these rings a bit too chunky for my taste and not all of them are really “unique” and I don’t think most of those would go well with 2 bands, either – too much going on. I would personally do a round brilliant center with a very thin halo and shared prong band.. and then you can add the two bands after. Something similar to this:

    Another bee has a similar ring with a moissy center stone and it’s STUNNING.. Her username is MrsSkelentonKey and she posted a pic of it in this thread: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/to-all-you-trouble-makers-out-there#axzz2hf1yaC5z

    But, that’s just my personal taste, not sure it matches yours!

    I think the Tiffany is the way to go. It is the only truly “unique” ring out of your choices.

    I think the poll results are skewed because many bee’s probably LIKE choices 1-4 precisely because they are not very unique. While beautiful, they are generic looking to me.

    #5 is a love-it or hate-it ring, very sparkly, very out there. Many people won’t “get it”, but it is the most flashy unique one. The others I have seen a million times before.

    As previous posters have pointed out, although I much prefer #2 to any of the others and think if would go best with 2 bands,  I don’t think it fits your criteria of unique.  Out of the choices,  I thinkonly numbers 3 and 5 are unique,  but  not a fan of 3 at all. So I guess I should vote for 5, but it’s going to end up really chunky with 2 bands,  which is fine if that’s what you’re wanting.  Otherwise I would say keep looking.

    I think it’s good that you’re considering how bands will look with it, and the most unique (#3,#4,#5) may be tricky to find bands for.  If you like the look of a curved band, or a gap between e-ring and band, you may be ok.  But if you want a flush fit I can’t see that working for #3 or #5.  Maybe it would for #4, but it’s hard to tell from the pictures.

    BEAUTIFUL RINGS! I love Simon G and am now the proud owner of one! I have tried on the first option before and the stock photos do NOT do that ring justice! It is even MORE gorgeous in person! My vote is for number 1!
