    I love the look of the twists but… Think about what you want for a wedding band now before getting one. I’ve read about a lot if bees who have problems finding a wedding band to go with their twists. I like everything to be flush and symmetrical, and I want to be able to wear my wedding band by itself so I went with a straight band for both. Maybe I’ll get a RHR with a twist.

    with that size stone I’d say go for the twist since it will give you more bling! If you had a large stone, though (not that .75 or 1 carat are small by any means, I’m talking like 2+ carats) I think they look a lot better with the straight shank.  You can hve the best of both though if you get the straight shank and a twisted eternity band like this (not my set, found it on google):

    I would go with the straight shank for your Engagement Ring, then get a twist wedding band. I like the pic that @sloveneprincess posted above^^

    I voted for the straight band, but I tend to prefer things that are more classic and more symmetrical. I feel like the halo has been around for a long time, whereas the twisted band lends itself to a more modern or trendy look (which is beautiful in its own right, but not as much my style, particularly with a halo). I also like bands that sit more flush, but that’s another personal preference. It really depends on your taste because both are pretty!

    @Buckeyegirl:  I voted for the straight band, but that’s because I have simplistic taste but I am also very indecisive! I don’t like things that are bulky or over-bearing with glitz and glam. However — I also love the twist (not for me, because it’s not my style), but it’s actually one of very few rings with unique shanks that I actually would wear if it was given to me. I like that it’s delicate, and I think if you’re a person who likes vintage-y things, I’d go with that one. If you’re somebody who likes the simpler side of things as far as jewelry goes, I’d pick the straight one.

    Also something to think about — how many stones are set in each one o those bands. I’m hard on my hands, so I made my choice based on the fact that I’d probably lose a lot of little extra stones in a pave. For me, the twisted shank would probably get beaten up and be missing a few pretty quickly. The straight seems to be less of a “liability” in that way to me.

    You decide, girl! =] Both are gorgeous.

    I’m a fan of the twist band but it depends on your style. Since you like both, let’s add more elements to consider: 

    What kind of wedding band do you really want? I personnaly love a twist shank with a straight band because they sit flush while still allowing some spaces between the two. 

    Also, I find the twist shank to be young and fun. I also like little elements that make a ring different from the average. 

    Here’s my twist shank, which mixes metal and diamonds. Notice how the straight rose gold band sits against it…that’s what I love about it!
