I vote for Costco. At least start with that one and you can return it if you don’t like it.

I love Costco’s rings. I am seriously considering them for my wedding ring as well.

rth1223 :   I don’t think so but it’s hard to say without seeing it. Since it’s a great value and you can return it, I would start there and then if it’s too much with your engagement ring you can always go smaller.

Gorgeous ring bee!

I’m chiming in because I also have a solitare and also wanted a shared prong band. It’s tough to tell from your pictures, but another thing to consider would be whether or not you want a gap between your Engagement Ring and your wedding band. The larger stones sometimes make it difficult for the two rings to sit flush (particularily if they are tall), so it’s just something else to consider. 

I’m partial to thinner bands for sure, so I would vote for the smaller costco band or blue nile band as they would both accent your Engagement Ring but not compete with it.

rth1223 :  I actually ended up going with a vendor from Etsy, which made me nervous considering how good the return policies are from BN and costco. But I’m really happy with it. Again, I really like super thin bands so this is the one I went with, but they also make the same band with larger diamonds as well:

I liked that the diamonds they use were of higher quality and were closer in colour then the costco and BN options. I also looked at another vendor called Rosados Box, but they were a bit more expensive. Good luck! 🙂

I’d start with Costco and then return if it doesn’t work how you’d like it. Especially considering it is higher quality stones, similar price, and higher carat

i very much agree with you that anything larger than 0.5 really detracts from your (stunning) solitaire.  I’d honestly even lean to something slightly smaller, personally, but the 0.5 is my favorite of the photos you posted.

 Following this thread because my e-ring is the exact same style as yours, and I’ve been having such a hard time finding a band! Maybe this is a dumb question, but everyone is raving about Costco’s return policy–what is their return policy? Can you really just bring the ring back to the store if you don’t want it and get a full refund? 

I agree with you about getting the best value, but I also like the .5 Tiffany band. Does Costco have a smaller band? Either way you can’t go wrong; all of those photos looked beautiful!

I personally think they all look great.
