I would get the plain band if it means your center stone has better specs 🙂 I also like the way a plain band plus a diamond wedding band look together, so you can still get your extra bling fix when you get your wedding ring!!

Plain band, all the way. Then, get a nice diamond eternity ring for your wedding band.

bride2bride:  both rings are beautiful, I don’t think you can go wrong either way. Here is my plain shank, I like it because I generally wear pretty simple jewelry so the halo on its own was more than enough for me. Good luck!

I like the diamond band when looking at just the e-ring but I think a plain band looks better and gives you more options when pairing with your wedding ring. By The Way I’m looking to buy with James Allen as well.. Would love to hear how your experience is 🙂

I really love the look of a plain shank in a finger. I think diamond bands look more tempting when you are shopping, but plain shanks are more elegant and have a gorgeous shine.

bride2bride:  I am so glad that you are returning the other ring and finding what you really wanted! I agree with you that the halo and center diamond stand out more with the plain shank, therefore I like the first one better. And I think plain shank halo e-rings with diamond pave wedding bands look fantastic together!

I vote diamond band on the e-ring! Then you could do a plain wedding band if you want. I just think it looks weird when there’s a halo which adds so much more bling and then there’s none on the shank… just doesn’t flow well.

I love the look of a halo on a plain band. It seems to make the center stone and halo pop more. I think it also looks good with my diamond wedding band!

I love my halo ering. The more bling the happier it makes me. So diamond band for me all the way, hope you find the one you love!
