    I love the classic look of the plain band and yes it makes your stone stand out more! If you want bling then maybe you can just get a diamond wedding band. Congrats on your 10th anniv!

    I’m a sucker for pave! You could do pave engagement band and wedding band or I also love the look of plain engagement band and pave wedding band. You really can’t go wrong πŸ™‚

    I just got one of my wedding bands, both are pave and I’m mixing metals (sorry I’m terrible at getting pictures on my phone, I blame the iPhone X)

    I think the stone looks bigger and brighter with the plain shank, and you could add a diamond wedding band qhich will give you the bling you desire.

    Such a hard decision! I went through the same thing when I was thinking about what kind of engagement ring I wanted. I ultimately chose a pave because it’s like a new twist on an old favorite. However sometimes I see someone with a solitaire on a plain band with a beautiful stack and I’m like ‘hmmm did I choose right?’ But overall I’m so happy with my ring. My fiancé says it’s classy but it makes a statement, just like me πŸ™‚ honestly, you can’t go wrong with either in my opinion!

    I like the fourth one from top to bottom, the solitary without the diamond as it won’t look as loaded when you add the wedding band but is personal taste. It looks more clean and allows the diamond to really be the focus. The solitary with the diamond (third from top to bottom is nice too). I personally like no diamonds on solitary rings. Congratulations on your 10 years!

    The pave sure looks good on your hand. But personally I prefer the classic plain solitaire and then stack it with paved wedding band. 

    Here’s my set

    I chose a plain shank solitaire. I havent chosen a band yet but I’ll likely go with a pave band. I love the combo of plain shank & pave band.

    I usually prefer plain band and that’s what I’m getting for myself, but I think for you I actually like the pave better! I don’t know why, just looking back and forth between the pictures I think it looks better!
