i would switch them for the .5 carat bands. all that bling takes away from your ering.

…Also, maybe just one band?

I had a really hard time finding a wedding band too and actually bought and returned 4 different bands. I feel you! I ended up with a half eternity .5 ct band.

I think the 1 ct. bands take away from your e-ring. I would go with either one 1 ct. band, or two .5 ct. bands.

If you are worried about what other people think, to some people you can never have enough diamonds… to others, yeah that is a lot! Personally I would think it to be too much, but you should make your decision based on what you like.

i would get whatever you want! This is your chance to bling it out if that is what you like. Nothing will take away from your engagement ring, purely because its your engagement ring.

I would go for the .5ct too, especially when doing two bands. I find the larger ones a little distracting and think the more delicate glitter would really make your e-ring pop!

That said, I think you’d be hard pressed to find any girl who wouldn’t take your set 🙂

I agree with blondeebuckeye, I’d stick with 1 of those, or 2 thinner bands.

I’ve seen people with tons of bands and lots of bling, and I don’t think it looks weird.  Go with whichever your heart desires!  My personal choice would be to go with the 2 halfcaret bands.

It definately needs to be whatever makes you happy, and you llike… but in my opinion it hides your gorgeous rock so almost makes it less blingy in a way. I would go for a smaller band and probably only one. Show that rock off don’t hide it!

i think the setting looks beautiful! but i personally would go with one band if i did the 1ct. or do 2 bands at 1/2 ct. – i agree with Kitzy – i think it takes away from the ering
