I am losing my mind. I have made more threads about this decision than any other wedding thing combined. So forgive me bees, again, as I make one more!
a few weeks ago I bought a bead set band, one I deliberated on AT LENGTH but anyway… I found myself regretting my pick and having “plain band envy”‘. There is just something so classic, elegant and understated about them. Except I still want a wee bit of sparkle interest, but mostly metal. I thought the bead set band blended in with my ring too much, and looked so… Wimpy/whispy on it’s own. A luxe thick platinum band like his is what I want…. Except with a little sparkle.
So I started thinking about the Etoile. And I love it. I went to try it on today, and still I love it. My mom loves it more, my man loves it more…I think I might pull the trigger tomorrow. What do you think? Have I lost my mind? Wanting less sparkle? I think it lets my ering do it’s thing. It’s more modest which is nice because my ering is kind of flashy (to me anyway) And it’d be lovely to stack a tiny micro pave anni band with it down the road.
Thoughts? Vote on your favorite. Bead set left, Etoile middle, Bezet right.

I like them all. But I prefer the bead set band. Even on its own.
ETA: I think the bead set just gives you such a timeless classic look that will last a lifetime. I would buy a cheap plain band to wear when you don’t want sparkle at all.

I really like the bezet with your ring. It’s still thin enough to add an anniversary band later on. But i do love the bead set band you already have the most. I think the Etoile looks too thick for your ering. But either one looks great.

I prefer the ones with more metal! I think they look better both with your ring and by themselves!

Tough choice, cookie! Bead set or plain band but the latter looks too thick next to the e-ring.

I think you definitely got it right the first time! The bead set is just fab with your ring and on its own. Just my opinion of course, do what makes you happy!

I like the ones with less diamonds too, actually. Because your diamond is large and doesn’t need assistance to sparkle like a mad dog! In this case, less is more!

I prefer the bezet over all of them. The etoile doesn’t look right proportion wise- it kinda takes over your ering like the bead set band does.
The bezet has the perfect amount of bling and can still hold its own as most plain bands can.

This is tough because literally everything you pair with that gorgeous stunner looks amazing. Although, I have to say I do really like the Etoile! It goes well with your ring but also performs well as a stand alone band if you every choose to wear your wedding band alone sometimes. Honestly the more at look at the Etoile, the more I like it. Choices, choices…

With a ring like yours, so gorgeous on its own, I am not the biggest fan of the Etoile, sorry!
seeing these three not to each other, the Bezet is my fav for you. it’s stylish and modern but thin enough to be feminine and Classic, which is what you look like to me. It also complements your ring without taking over.
I love the bead band you have, too, but I can see that you might be wanting something just a little cleaner/ modern.
the good news is you can’t go wrong:-)
