So I am new to this site, this being my first post. My Boyfriend or Best Friend and I have been ring shopping recently, as he wants me to pick out a ring so he doesn’t have to do the guess work. We have narrowed down the choice to 3 different rings but I can’t decide on which one. I have attached a picture of all three choices. When looking please keep in mind that the middle and right ring – the diamond would be swapped out. The ring on the right is a 0.33 carat which he would probably swap out for a 0.5 0to 0.65 ish carat and the middle ring had a visible inclusion (so not to sparkly) which he would swap out as well. My Boyfriend or Best Friend likes the plain band the most, but I am gearing towards a band with diamonds on the side. What do you girls think, and what makes you choose that specific one? Thanks for any advice you can give.

I like 1 and 3. I like the smaller pave diamons in the band in #1.
I like the shiney metal contrast of the band in #3.

I think 1 is the prettiest.

I like #1 because of the stones on the band and the shape of the halo. If you really can’t pick a favorite, what about letting your Boyfriend or Best Friend choose?

I like them all.. I voted #2 as my favorite. But, if you like all 3 I agree with PP.. Let your Boyfriend or Best Friend pic… Or if you want diamonds On the band let him choose between 1 & 2….

I like number 3. The shiny metal is a very classy touch. You have a lot of bling without blinging out the band and although my band is blinged out, I don’t have a halo.
Congratulations and welcome to the Bee. Whatever you decide, you have a decadent decision to make. 😉

I like number 3, it’s blingy without being over the top (I personally don’t like too much bling). That way you can also get diamond wedding and eternity bands.
In saying that. I agree with the PPs who said maybe if you can’t choose tell your Boyfriend or Best Friend to pick between the three. That way there will still be an element of surprise when you see it.

Thank you everyone for your posts and taking the poll. What a tough decision but such a great avenue this website is. After a few weeks of deliberation, reading the posts and results of the poll it seems all are relatively equally admired. I think ill let the Boyfriend or Best Friend make the ultimate decision and should he go with the the plain band, I know he loves I think I’ll bling it out something similar to this picture (not that the plain isnt bling enough) 🙂

TeresaMarie: LOL, mine was the vote that evened it out to the same amount of votes per ring. Looks like it is a hard choice, at first glance I want to say #1! Yeaaahhhh sparkles! But, after looking for a couple seconds I voted #3, I agree with your Boyfriend or Best Friend, the contrast is beautiful!

I like 3, plain band. I think it makes the stone and halo really stand out

I know pave is popular now, but in terms of maintenance, the plain band is best. You don’t run the risk of dirt getting stuck in there or the risk of losing a stone. They’re all lovely though.

I voted #3 but also agree with other posters to let your boyfriend pick and make it a surprise. They’re all beautiful 🙂
