    Im British and I have a blingy ring. First off wear whatever you want, we British will often be extra critical.

    On the other hand, In my opinion. I think that maybe the eternity ring overpowers the engagement ring a little. Could you not get a diamond eternity ring a bit smaller so it compliments the solitaire and then the solitaire stands out a bit.

    @Rachel631:  Are the stones diamond or CZ? That’s very cheap for diamonds!

    As for whether it’s too much, it’s really up to you. Most people I know, who got married recently, have stones in their wedding rings.

    I think it’s entirely your choice and you’ve made your mind up by the sound of things. I have a very blingy engagement ring and a plain gold wedding band.  The wedding band was my grandmothers and I think it’s beautiful next to my bling engagement ring. IMO the eternity ring doesn’t look right with your engagement ring – swamps it a little.

    Brit- we’re going for plain bands. Don’t forget 99% of workplaces will only let you wear a plain band which was an important factor for us.

    It’s a nice enough ring but I don’t think it looks like a wedding ring if that makes sense? go for what you want though

    I’m not a Brit, and while I love the look of plain e-rings with eternity bands, I think a smaller band would be better.

    @Darcy212:  Don’t forget 99% of workplaces will only let you wear a plain band which was an important factor for us.

    Um. What.

    @Darcy212: What absolute tosh about “99% of workplaces”! The only workplaces who place restrictions on wedding jewellery are those who do it for hygiene reasons e.g. hospitals and kitchens.

    @Rachel631:  I looks like us americans can’t read directions and like to give our opinions even though we are not asked for it. GUILTY!!!

    @darcy – Are  you sure?  I have never heard that nor have any of my friends or family had problems with this. I know this is the case people in the healthcare professions for obvious reasons but im pretty sure an eternity ring in most professions is absolutley fine

    I am European and chose a plain band to be traditional. I will add a blingy band later when we’ll have kids. Just pick the ring you love.

    I’m a brit and  not a blingy person at all, but my vote is definitely for the eternity ring, it looks amazing.

    American here.  I like the plain band more.  The one you posted overpowers your ering.  Also, it’s my understanding that in the UK rings are a bit more modest than in the US, so it is perfectly acceptable and even expected that you’ll go the simple route.
