I think that’s a gorgeous set. What does it look like on? Is that where you hesitate? What else are you considering?

Something to think about is that when you are wearing the set, you will not be able to see it from the side.  Your ring is basically an eternity ring if the diamonds go all the way to the side, so if you get an eternity ring, it’s going to look exactly the same.

To start off, both rings are gorgeous!!! In my personal opinion, I think I like the side of the eternity band better. I’m like you in that I pay attention to all angles of the ring. I think maybe what you don’t like about the band you have now is that the setting of the diamonds is too high showing off more of the metal and less of the "shininess" of the diamonds from the side. I explained this to the jeweler my husband got my e-ring from, and he had the best ring for me. It’s a semi-bezel set diamond. Bezel is when there is metal around the entire diamond while semi-bezel has the metal only on either side and a diamond cut for more shine from the side. So, you still see the diamond from the side and get more shine from the metal b/c of the way it’s cut.

I hope I didn’t confuse you too much! If I had to choose between the two bands you showed us, I would choose the eternity! But…they’re both beautiful!

I prefer the eternity band, but for a different reason: I like that the eternity band is not "curved" on top.  This way you can wear it alone if you like and it won’t look out of place.  But both are beautiful – you have some good choices!

I think it’s looks really good together.  When I first got my wedding band (it was custom made to fit with my ering) I didn’t really like it.

I think I was so used to admiring my ering alone that I had to get used to seeing them together.  I wore them together at home for a few hours over a few days and really grew to like it.

The other thing that helped me was the point of view.  You might not be wild about how it looks from the side, but look at yourself wearing them in a mirror- the way others will see it.  When I did that, I really liked how they complimented each other.

Also- who cares if it’s curved. You can still wear it alone.
