    I like the engraved or the bezel. If you get the engraved, you can always move up to a diamond band for an anniversary and wear the plainer band when you need to leave the more expensive pieces at home.

    I love a classic, plain wedding band. Symbolic and timeless, imo. Then…you can always ask for a diamond band as an anniversary band. 

    My plan: plain wedding band, bezeled eternity band as a future anniversary gift 😉

    @NalaBee:  I LOVE plain bands as I have one myself. But out of the diamond ones I’m loving that bezel band for sure! I want one of those for myself also LOL

    EDIT: That engraved band is to die for!.. And is what I originally wanted but not being able to size it in the future without messing up the design was a deal breaker for me.

    I really really like the engraved band. It’s simple but not at the same time if that makes any sense.

    I like all of them, but I really love the pave band.

    the pave, I think the bezel would put too much emphasis on metal instead of diamonds, and take away from the size of your ering centerstone.

     

    the band is lovely, but if you can afford a little extra sparkle the pave’ is the way to go.  the engraved one looks too high to fit up against it, also its not rounded off so it may look too boxy.

    I like bands to match the rings they’ll be worn with so they look like a set so I like the first one.

    Plain. The engraved band is beautiful, but I don’t think it goes with the E-ring. I also prefer wedding bands without a lot of glitz, but of those diamond bands, I like the bezel.

    I love the look of a plain wedding ring.  Soo timeless.  But I love the engraved look because it adds a little depth to the plain band without the distraction of sparkle.  I agree with adding diamonds as an anniversary down the line.  With your ring you cant really go wrong.

    Either plain or engraved – probably plain as it compliments your engagement ring and maked the diamond stand out.

    Diamond bands are not at all common in England, but the problem I’ve seen with pictures on wedding sites is that a sparkly wedding band can often drown out a very nice engagement ring. And sometimes…they just don’t match well or they look waaaay too much.

    I think going for plain would really bring out your engagement ring but at the same time the engraved one is beautiful. If you were planning on not wearing the engagement ring all the time I would say the engraved would be a lovely choice.

    I’m partial to diamond bands and milgrain, so that gets my vote 🙂  But I also love the engraved band.  It comes down to personal preference.
