    Bead set- you got it right the first time.

    Etoile - thick metal

    Bezet- thinner metal

    MrsBuesleBee:  I like the thick etoile band the best but Im sure thats not a popular opinion! Only if you can still exchange your band of course! I think the etoile is just more unusual and I like some heft! But both styles are great.

    MrsBuesleBee:  my vote is for the bezet! I can see what you say about your original wedding band taking away from your e-ring, and I think the etoile is just a little too thick/masculine for me personally. Which is why I like the bezet best. But go with your gut!!

    MrsBuesleBee:  I agree with you that a band with more metal and less sparkle actually does look better with your e-ring. I know most bees would stick with the bead set, which is fine because that is a popular style to have with a solitaire. I am so loving the bezet with your ring and then the Etoile would be my next choice. I’m just really partial to the bezet style though. They both look great and if you love the Etoile then go for it! Get what makes you happy and in the future it would look great with an anniversary stacking band!

    I like the bead set best! The bezet is also pretty with your ring but I’m just not 100% sure about that style with your ring…perhaps because I had a similar one when I was young and it makes me think it’s too “young” looking. I don’t like the etoile – too thick! What about the classic knife edge band?

    I like the bead set the best. I am not a fan at all of the Etoile. The “floating” diamonds look lost and somewhat out of place. I think first choice is bead set, then plain, then distant 3rd is Etoile.

    My favorite is the bead set. Good luck with your decision!

    Bezet ftw. I think the etoil is too thick.

    MrsBuesleBee:  I have a friend who did exactly this – now that she has kids she wears stacked: plain platinum band, sparkley channel set T&Co band, etoile. It looks lovely!

    MrsBuesleBee:  the bezet is really pretty! I love the bead set and bezet, now I’m understanding your dilemma!! It’s so hard to choose.  Really they are both lovely so you can’t go wrong. But now I think I’m leaning more towards the bezet 🙂

    MrsBuesleBee:  Yes it would look great with either of those bands. I really love the look of a plain band next to some bling so I totally see why you are thinking about switching it up!

    If both my mom and fiance loved the same band, I couldn’t pass that up. Especially if it was one I was also loving!

    MrsBuesleBee:  The bezet is my personal favorite but, the etoile has a great look to it on its own and doesn’t look bad in contrast with your e ring. Its quite nice and unexpected actually. 

    The one you originally chose was beautiful but I’d have to agree with your mom.. Its trendy and the other two you’ve posted are more unique paired with the classic rb solitaire.

    Bezet. Simple, with a twist. But in saying that I don’t like bands that are different widths. I feel it throws the centre stone off. Otherwise the etoile on its own would be divine.
