@stonewell: The first one looks perfect!

I know it seems I don’t like the original ring, I really do… I think I am just feeling so darn uncertain! You’re absolutely right – bigger isn’t better. Perhaps I’ve been feeling a bit of diamond shrinkage from my hours lurking on these ring boards! lol.
Thanks for the detailed feedback… I thought maybe a wider band might make the whole set look more proportioned, since I had gotten questions on whether or not I was wearing a wedding band at all.
Ohhh… I think I understand what you’re suggesting. Do you have any examples of it?
@everyone: I’m appreciating all your comments – it’s a bit interesting to think that I may come full circle and stay with my original band after all! Perhaps I just needed some reassurance that it does look good? I dunno…
Please keep on voting and sharing your opinion!

Thanks for your feedback! I should’ve mentioned that I had tried several straight bands – when we were originally shopping, and I gave it another go this time around too. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any that would look decent or work because of how low my halo is situated. Every one I tried on seemed to rub the e-ring in an awkward way and I was told it would either destroy the prongs on the band or wear into my e-ring in due time. Ugh.

I think your original wedding ring complements the engagement ring. Any of the others clash or compete with it. I’d definitely stay with the original.

Hands down, the original band! It looks gorgeous.

I really love your original band! It just looks really clean lined and nice!

I vote 3! It just looks more “vintage” to me and I love that!

So, I went back and checked my paperwork – the e-ring band is actually over 5mm thick! It’s 5.25mm to be exact. I think that is what fueled my worry about getting a thicker wedding band.
In any event, it looks like option 1, keeping the original band, is still in the lead! I wonder… what if I were to keep all three?? I really do like all three for different reasons and on this rare occasion cannot see making a final choice. This way I can change it up depending on my mood? Wonder how excited my DH would be to hear that option! lol. Actually, he’s so wonderful, it would tell me to do it.

@stonewell: I think the first band looks best with your e-ring.

@stonewell: I think I like #1 the best!

I actually REALLY like #3. It matches without being over or underwhelming and I like the slight change of shape.
