    Do you mean wedding rings or engagement rings or both?

    I think the first step is to talk with your significant other and decide on a budget.

    Next step is to go to a jeweler and try on things to see what you like and what looks good. You can do this alone or with your SO. Do you prefer white gold or yellow gold or platinum? Do you prefer diamonds or gemstones? Etc.

    You’ll become an expert in no time 😉

    @Djacks88:  I personally prefer the first setting, it is the most modern and versatile, in my opinion.

    You may want to add a poll, to see what people think!

    I love the third one simply because of the way the other bands just wrap around it. I seem to agree with the order that he ranked them as well… it just bugs me that the band on the first one sticks so far out. But they are all excellent choiced and you should go with what you feel most comfortable wearing.

    If it were me, I’d have the first AND third – but only one of the curved bands. I’d have one on one side and the other on the other. 

    I just think that the gap between the first ring and your e-ring is too big, but because your e-ring is quite quirky having two matching curved bands doesn’t suit.

    I voted for the black mis-matched band.  I actually do like it a lot, but also picked it by default because I hate the look of wraps or enhancer type bands.

    omg, #1 looks amazing!!! My opinion here may differ from several other bees, but YOU are the one who will have to wear it/look at it for the rest of your life, you should love it. I think the single band looks soooo good. I really love it.

    All cool. I prefer the two black bands because the channel setting is most complimentary with your set! 🙂

    i’d love to see the ering with just one of the black bands!!!
