    I have a love affair with solitaires next to pave or channel bands, so im all over option 1. But TBH, Option 2 is beautiful also, so whatever you choose will be awesome.

    I voted for the engraved band! It goes well with your ring. If you look at the side view pic that the vendor sent you, the thicknesses of the ering shank and band match, and they just overall compliment each other. I do, however, like sparkle, too…but for some reason, I just think that band may fall flat in presence and sparkle.

    I loooove solitaires with pave or shared prong bands so personally I’d pick the pave band.  But I think the engraved band looks lovely with the ring.  I don’t think you can go wrong.

    I think both would look beautiful, really.  You can’t go wrong 🙂  I have a french pave band, if that helps.  I like the low profile of it.

    @NalaBee:  You can’t go wrong either way.  Depends really what you are wanting.  Are you wanting the bling factor, or just somthing a little different and a little more simple.  I honestly love both but if it were me I would go with pave.  Wedding band shopping is SO hard, I was the same way!  After 5+ stores everything started looking the same and it got so frustrating because I could not commit to one because I loved 2 styles.  Luckily my FI and the BEES gave me some great advice and I finally picked.  Good luck!!

    They’re truly both lovely, but I love the look of a pave band with a plain shank solitaire like yours. It really comes down to whether you want a more classic look (engraved band) or a more blingy look (pave). For me, bling always wins!

    That would be a hard choice!!! If I was picking I think I would go with the diamond band..but both are beautiful and would look good with your ring! Congrats..let us know what you pick!

    @NalaBee:  OOh I almost went with that same e-ring!  I’m glad I finally get to see a pic in real life of it (the mannequin doesn’t really do their rings justice).  I like #1 to enhance the solitaire stone, the scroll kind of competes with it, but is also very very pretty.
