    rred :  I voted for the pave.  To me, the pave is both classic and goes well with your ring.  The Versailles is trendy, so it will look very dated in 10 years.  But if you love the Versailles the most, you can always get a new band  later on!

    I normally would choose the pave, but I voted for the Versailles. Though the oval and the Versailles are trendy now, I feel like they kind of have a vintage romantic look that suits the other. They both are gorgeous. The pave would be the safer bet though.

    I voted for the Versailles band too, althought both are lovely. I thought the Versailles band made your stone pop more!

    Versailles! The other is too matchy matchy for my taste. Personally, I either want a band to match exactly to the engagement ring or be completely different and provide contrast, but that’s just me.

    rred :  I prefer the French pave, it matches without being too obvious as it is slightly thicker

    I chose the Versailles, but I am biased as I have marquis set east/west on my ering! I haven’t had any troubles with the prongs yet!

    Hard choice!

    I think both would be a good option but my eye is more drawn to the French Pave

    I love the Versailles, but think your concerns are valid! Have you read the reviews on BE site for that particular band? I’m also considering a more unique band as I find when you have the perfect match to an ering’s pave they tend to blend in which I don’t like. You honestly cannot go wrong! Both make such a gorgeous compliment to your lovely ering.

    I’m considering these two from Brilliant Earth to start (not my ering, but the same setting- mine is Rose Gold):

    I voted for Versailles because I love mismatched rings!
