I actually don’t like twist bands at all (sorry!) so I vote the straight band. 🙂

I think this is a great dilemma to have–two options you love! Here’s what I think: #2 is the “safer” choice–and since it is more classic you’re going to have more people on here who like it. But that’s the thing about more classic vs. uniquely-styled rings: a lot of people “like” the classic rings (and some, like me, LOVE them). But with rings with more unique features, there will be fewer people who prefer them, but for people who really like them, those different features make them LOVE them! 

If you really love option 1 more, or want something that is a bit different, then it is worth it to go for that option and figure out getting a wedding band to match. If you are equally drawn to both, then the wedding band consideration is one that would drive me towards option 2.

I agree with @teaandcake. The ring looks sideways to me as well. Option # 2 all the way.

#2.  I could hardly see the gold part of the twist one and the ring just looked “off” to me.

I really dislike ribbon bands, so I’d get #2!

I like them both… option 1 is unique and different. If you’re concerned about finding a wedding band to go well with it… it’s not “impossible” I’m sure there’s styles out there to fit well with it. So just keep that in mind as well. But they are both very pretty!!

1 made me say ohhhh so pretty!! BUT if you plan to wear your wedding band with your ring, 2 is the way to go. I would think it’s hard to find a band for 1.

I vote 2; however, you can also get a setting where the twist isn’t so open, and it would still be easy to get a band.

I agree that #1 looks unbalanced. I’m not a fan of twist bands where only one portion has diamonds, and this one is quite extreme. The first band LittleFrenchBee posted above is very pretty if you do want a twist band.

#1 IS GORGEOUS. If its your dream ring, try to first find  matching band ideas.
