So I love my engagement ring and wedding band! Don’t get me wrong. However, when purchasing my band, no one informed me of how much damage a straight band would do to my engagement ring. Both are white gold. My engagement ring is a split shank halo with princess cut center stone. Here is a side view picture of my rings.
Now I stopped by a jewelry store while I was running errands to browse at options of bands and possibly a different ring just to see. And fell in LOVE with the ring below on the left. The right is my current rings. I cannot get this ring out of my head! Wishing they had this before when my husband and I were shipping styles I liked. What do you bees think is better?
Ps…the blue in my ring is from the blue lights above me. My ring is a D in color, which is almost colorless.

I think yours looks better!

I like the one on the left because I prefer simpler and less bling. Your ering is still beautiful though.

I also prefer a more simple setting with clean lines, but both rings are beautiful in their own way. If I had to choose one though, I prefer the solitaire.

They’re both beautiful, but I prefer the simpler setting as it is more my style. How would your Fiance feel if you wanted to change? It seems like there are a lot of bees who change it up! If he wouldn’t be opposed to it and you can afford it, I’d get the ring you really love.

Is it just a crush? I’ve been crushing on pretty much every style ring recently – AVCs, 6 prong Sols, 4 prong Sols, Asscher Halo’s, Oval Halo’s and all sorts else!
It doesn’t mean that I regret my original e-ring – I just want all the rings! Would you be able to replicate the solitaire with a simulant to keep costs down – then you could have both!

Try a spacer ring between the two.

I like yours waaaay better! It’s gorgeous

I prefer simple settings and less bling, but I actually prefer your current set. I think it might be because of the gap between the solitaire and wedding band – im not fond of gaps. I love your wedding band and I think it looks best with your current ering 🙂

amanda918 : I don’t understand how the ring on the left would rub less…a straight band will rub against any setting that is too low- double shank or single…What am I missing?

Both rings are beautiful, and though I prefer solitaire rings, I think your ring better with your wedding band! 🙂

I like your current ring better!

Your old set seems to match better.
If it’s just a matter of how the wedding band rubs the V shaped e-ring, you’re still going to have a problem with the big square diamond in the new ring. I think if that’s the problem you’re trying to solve, you need a shaped wedding band – not a new e-ring.
If, however, you’re looking for a simpler e-ring – the new one is much more subdued. They’re really very different rings – it’s not a matter of ‘which is nicer?’, it’s a question of ‘which style do you prefer?’ – and that’s a subjective question only can answer for yourself.

Sadiebelle : yes I wish I could a simulant!
desss : tried many different spacers and nothing works without looking like the bling is taking up my entire hand. My ring size is 5, and the dainty rings look better.
maegen88 : thank you!!!
panda87 : thank you! I am actually a fan of the gap, as I have a gap in my current set. But there’s only a gap with solitaire bc it was way too big n that’s just how I took the picture. Thank you for the compliment on my ering 🙂
seejanebee : my wedding band wouldn’t rub on the solitaire as it sits higher. And my current ering has leaf designs on the side where my rings are rubbing, which is getting messed up. The solitaire is plain on the sides but sits higher than my wedding band.
mishybear : thanks! I’m just not a fan of curved bands at all. That’s why I took a look at the rings to see if a simpler ering would be a better option and I’m not going to lie, the simplicity of the solitaire is what I loved when I seen it. Was never a big solitaire fan (on me of course) until seeing this ine.
