    I like number 1 – its uncomplicated and lets the centre stone shine!

    I like the third ring best. The first just doesn’t sit well with me for some reason, and I can’t quite put my finger on what that reason is. Maybe it’s the design of the band.

    I’m not a huge fan of the second one because I prefer a defined center stone. 

    The third is just pretty and visually interesting (a good thing!) IMO. It would look great as a stand-alone without a wedding band. 

    Keep in mind that these are just my preferences, and I don’t mean to offend in any way! Whatever you choose will be great for you =)

    I like the 3rd ring best because it looks the most balanced to my eye.  Not that I don’t like the other ones because I do, but that would be my first choice and the 1st ring would be my second choice.

    The second one looks the least bridal because it doesn’t have a centre stone.  Otherwise choose the third one.

     

    A better idea

    If I were you I wouldn’t choose any of them but just get a very simple delicate gold ring with a very tiny white or coloured diamond in it, 0.05 points perhaps. 

    For example: http://www.anandakhalsa.com/shop/tiny-diamond-ring

    Then when you get your final engagement ring you can use the tiny diamond as a surprise (peek-a-boo) diamond.  This will give you a feeling a continuity between the two rings and make your final engagement ring feel very personal.
