    @Honey-Bee:  I don’t think you can go wrong here because both look great.  But I think your post answers itself.  You are not happy with the thin band and you want the thick band!  As long as it’s not too late, I would get the one you really want.  We all have different styles on here, and you seem pretty set on yours.  Listen to your gut.

    I’m cheap (lol but honest about it) and I like skinny bands, so personally I’d go with the skinny one

    I think the thinner band makes your centre stone pop really nicely. It gets a bit lost with the blingyness of the thicker band.

    I agree that the bottom band gives more of a “Real Housewives” feel, but to me that is a bad thing! I think the top, thinner band is more flattering, but I’d pair a classic solid precious metal band with it instead, myself. The engagement ring is already very blingy.

    @Honey-Bee:  I guess I’m in the minority here but I like the mismatched look way better. Especially because they still “go” if that makes sense. If the larger band is in your budget, I would get that one! 🙂 Love love love Ritani, btw.

    I think the thinner band looks much better.

    I prefer the thick band, but either goes well with your lovely engagement ring!  

    oops.  edited for spelling!

    I love the skinny band; it makes the center stone stand out.

    Have you thought about two skinny bands, one on either side? I know it’s untraditional but it might “balance” out the ring a little bit.

    I agree it sounds like you know which one you want so I don’t know that this poll will really help.  That being said, I actually like the thicker band.  I understand what you mean about the housewives feel, and I like that the rings match enough to go well with each other, but the skinny band gets lost to me and almost isn’t noticeable as a wedding band.  I have the same problem, my e-ring had a matching band so I got it.  It looks good with my e-ring, but I can’t wear just the band by itself, it is way too skinny and just looks odd.  Not substantial enough to be a standalone ring.  For times like going to the gym or when I gain too much weight while pregnant that I can’t wear both rings together anymore, I will wish I had a standalone style wedding band. Go with your gut and get the ring YOU like best! 🙂

    I liked the thin band in the store picture, but you’re right! It looks less impressive in real life. I would go with the thick band!

    I like both.  The thin band looks like a complete set.  But would you like wearing it alone?

    I say, go for the bigger diamond band.  It still looks great together and you’re leaning towards it.
