I feel like the eternity band looks like a wedding band and not an engagement ring. I think you just need to decide if you want that classic engagement ring look or if you want to go with something a little less traditional and do the band. It’s totally your personal preference, but they are both gorgeous!

Will you pair a wedding band with it when you’re married? That might make a difference when you think about how they’ll look together.

This is what I always say: get both! haha.  Get the first one now and the second one to match as your wedding band!

I always love a solitaire, but my wedding band is a half eternity, so I’m getting the best of both worlds.  If you are only having one, you’ll just need to choose what you’ll be most happy wearing for the long run.. maybe the band is more ‘practicle’ than the solitaire.

My initial thought is get both.  Wear one as an e-ring and the other as a wedding band.

I say both too, but if it’s either/or…I say go for the 3 carat solitare 🙂

I think the solitaire would be nice, with a smaller eternity band.  Beautiful choice to have to make though!

I agree with going for both 🙂  But if it is just one, the classic solitaire is my choice.  I was all set on 3 stone rings.  I was worried about any ring with prongs & my job, and I was worried about rings in general since I never wear jewelry.  So I got a cheapy 3 stone ring and wore it around a bit at work when no one was around and all day at home on the weekends to get used to having a ring on.  And after a little while, I decided I hated the 3 stone look for myself.  It just didn’t fit my personality.  If you can find a cheapy ring from Claires or some place that like that mimics both rings, that might help you decide.

I like the eternity band actually. Not sure why.

i love the eternity band as an engagement ring! it’s super classy while still being sparkly and fun to look at. As son as i saw it i thought of the great possibilities you will have for your wedding band, gemstones, filigree etc. 

The words “sophisticated” “classy” and “elegant” come to mind which is appropriate for a second marriage i think

If your gut says solitaire, go for it!! You could always get a CZ band like the one above to go with it.  Then, if the size changes it’s not that big of a deal.  I’m not sure how they would look next to each other, but i think a good quality one would look great.
