    Probably plain. None of the other bands really pop out to me. The stone is so beautiful on its own that too much detail might take away from it. If I was going to do anything with “detail”, it would be a white diamond band.

    I like the swirl band but the plain is a close second

    I’d say swirl, or carved. Not a fan of plain bands. Especially because your e ring is smooth, I think some texture could be really nice.

    Would you be interested in something like this?

    I think it could go well with the sapphire and it’s simple enough not to distract from your engagement ring but also has some texture and complexity to it as well.

    I have a carved engravings on my engagement ring, and I get compliments all the time on it. I wanted a ring with no worries of diamonds falling out, and it is gorgeous. Because of this, I say you should go with the carving.

     

    However, I also second

    Michelle10 :  Its my e-ring that is carved. 🙂 Its super comfortable and the design also sparkles like crazy. The pattern is across pretty much the whole band. Here is a link to the wedding and version of my e-ring. They also take great shots and have a video. Some people have photo reviews old their set with it as well.

    bumblebug :  This is really pretty. I like that it’s somewhat different than a pain band. It would look great with the ring as well.

    I still think the plain band is too bland. The carved band would look great. It adds texture while still being simple, and I think it gives more of that traditional married look than the swirl band.

    I like the plain band. I think I would go with a rose or yellow gold band for some contrast! I also think an etoile style band would be gorgeous in either diamonds or sapphires.

    I also love Bumblebug’s choice, but maybe with all the sapphires in the middle of the band and not undulating? Another option: a plain white gold band with millgrain.  It’s traditional but a little less plan than a PLAIN plain band.

    I think that you need something with a bit more pizzaz.  Talk to your jewelry about making something custom to match your sapphire — maybe a band with a couple of diamonds and saphire on it?  I dunno, but it shouldn’t cost a lot and as your engagement ring is plain, go a bit more daring and implement the same stone and/or diamonds/crystals.
