My fiance is at the jeweler’s right now. I don’t have to pick it this moment, but I do need to get the ball rolling, since the jeweler said it can take up to 4 weeks to make the ring.
I want a simple, thin band. I have a simple 1 carat solitaire on a thin, platinum band (I think it might be 2mm). The jeweler sent me pictures, but it’s so hard to pick without seeing it on an actual finger.I can’t go there, because my fiance lives in NYC and I’m in Florida.
I like that the rings all have an antique feel, but they’re not quite as simple and dainty as I had hoped. What do you think? Which band do you think is the most simple or dainty/pretty? Which one do you think will look best with a solitaire e-ring?
I would appreciate your feedback so much. And if you have a ring similar to any of these, could you post a pic? Thank you!!
Or should I just go for a simple, plain band? I like this pic I think is from wb(sorry I don’t know who it’s from).

I love #3. I think its unique and gorgeous!

I voted for number 1. I think it is dainty enough to not overpower your e-ring, but unique enough to make a statement. They’re all beautiful rings and I don’t really think you can go wrong

1, 3 or 5!!
Haha, I’m partial to 5 because I’m looking at one very similar.

@everyheart: I like the first one! I thought I wanted dainty too (my e-ring band is 2.3 mm) but in the end I chose something that was 3 mm so it said YO! MARRIED! 🙂 I think any of these are substantial enough to do that but small enough not to overpower a solitaire!

I like them all … can’t he get them all for you? 🙂 Seriously, I voted for #3 and #1 as a second choise but they are all lovely. Even a plain band will go well with your ring.

@everyheart: I like 1 and it will also sit nicely next to your solitaire.
EDIT: just voted for other by mistake instead of 1. Go with your heart

They are all beautiful choices and I don’t think you could really go wrong with any of them, but I like number 4 because it has presence to wear on its on without youre-ring if you wanted to. I also like the idea of the two fitting together.

I am partial to number 3. I also want to point out that it will very likely be more “dainty” in person. Close up pictures always seem larger than in real life.

@everyheart: Oh man… they are all gorgeous! I’d go with 2, 4 or 5 because they’ll sit flush to your ering.

I love them all! But I’m partial to baguettes…so #4!

I voted for number one because I feel like it gives you the antique feel while complimenting your engagement ring.

I find #5 to be absolutely elegant. It has more of a vintage vibe to me than some of the others. Here’s the thing, though. I also really love the timeless elegance of the plain band and can tell you in full honesty that it’s what I’m getting to go with my platinum solitaire.
You can’t go wrong with any of these, but I voted for #5 and will be rocking a plain band myself. Best of luck!

I voted for plain ONLY because all of the options are eternity bands and aren’t easily resized. Since you can’t try them on in person, you won’t know how that jeweler sizes rings. You’d think that all jewelers use the same size standards but as we hear about on the Bee, sometimes the rings don’t fit.

I like #4 because I love baguettes (although I don’t have any on my rings).
