    I like the three-stone the best. Maybe she could try on bands that have some design to them, like diamond cutting, for sparkle.

    Hmm…tough decision because all the options are gorgeous!  I know that when I went ring shopping, what I thought I wanted changed slightly when I started trying rings on!  

    If she loves the eternity band, what if she got double wedding bands with the solitaire e-ring?  Then one could be the eternity band and one could be a simple gold band, placed on either side of the e-ring.  On the other hand, she could just get insurance for the eternity ring and e-ring and then if something did happen, she wouldn’t have to worry about replacing or fixing it!  

    If she doesn’t like the look of the wedding band with the 3-stone, she may not want to get the 3-stone after all.  Ultimately she has to think about what she wants to wear for the rest of her life!  

    I wouldn’t get the 1ct if it is out their price range – get a beautiful ring that isn’t going to break the bank.

    Hmm, I love the three stone, but I think the diamond eternity band with it would just be too much. Also if she want to wear her ring while gardening and traveling it doesn’t make sense to have something that might get lost or damaged. Personally I take my ring off to garden and I have a $35 cubic zirconia I travel with, but that is because I would be devestated if anything happened to this ring. Seriously, my heart would be broken.

    If she really wants an eternity band (and I think she should get what she wants!), then I like the second picture. The engagement ring and eternity wedding band look more balanced than in the third picture (those two look too similar in size… the second picture really has the solitaire pop!). You could try to get a 3/4 carat ring or get an eternity band with smaller diamonds. Just play around with the sizes until you get something that meshes, but I think the overall style is a winner.

    She should also just take her ring off when she gardens/travels. There is no need to wear it 24/7. My mother always took her jewelry off and left it in her bedroom.

    I personally love the solitare with the eternity band.  Classic and beautiful.  I also would agree that trying rings on is just like trying dresses on.  You may LOVE how a ring looks on someone else or in the jewlry case but you may change your mind once it is on your hand.  I thought I wanted a halo or pave setting but I ended up falling in love with a soltiare engraved band.  I just felt like it was more “me”.   A year later and I am still in love with my engagement ring.

    I love the three stone. I may be partial to it b/c I have one ;-)! I am going with a very thin platinum plain band with mine. I think it looks low key with the plain band. I was thinking about a shared setting 1/4 or 1/2 ct band (not eternity) with the three stone and it was too flashy for me. 

    For me, I don’t like eternity bands b/c I don’t want the diamonds on the underside of my finger. 

    Good luck!

    The three stone is very similar to mine, and I just lvoe it! But, it’s such an individual thing. It’s whatever she loves, and will want to wear the rest of her life!

    I prefer the look of a solitaire as opposed to a three-stone setting. But clearly it’s up to her!!

    I don’t like 3-stone sets personlly but i do like the 1 ct+band the best, but if it’s out of their budget, that happens. What about the 1/2 carat stone with a thinner gold setting? it’d help the diamond pop a little more.

    Also if she likes 3 stone sets but is worried about the metal, you could have little pave stones put on the sides to take away the metal look. you could do two very thin diamond bands that contour the 3-stone set as wedding bands too!

    I love the solitaire with eternity band. I’ve always loved the way they look together.

    I’m a little biased because I have a three stone ring (and I LOVE it).  My wedding band is similar to the eternity band.  I’ve asked several jewelers their suggestions on a wedding band to go with my ring, and the two suggestions have been for an eternity band or a plain band.  I happen to love the look of a three stone ring with an eternity band.
