    Girl you need to show this group some pics lol….we love our pics and it is easier for us to give you our opinions….without the pics I think you should go with the one you love the most. Go over the pros and cons and then figure it out from there. If one matching band is almost covered with the halo wouldnt the other one too? Mismatchin is becomin very popular and really shows everyone that you are unique but the matching sometimes feature the engagment ring….good luck and let us know what you choose and pics please lol

    I think your question really is a matter of personal preference!  If I were in your position, I would get one of the matching bands, but that’s exactly what I did about my own rings (my husband let me pick them out).  I’m just the type of girl who really prefers the look of matching rings.  I also don’t mind too much that my wedding band isn’t really the type of ring to wear by itself but other ladies want wedding bands that they can wear independently from their engagement rings.  I could also tell you that I’d consider buying the non-matching band because you’d get more diamond for the same amount of money, but is that what’s important to you or does it not matter?

    Which band did YOU like best? 🙂

    I am personally a fan of a more matched look and a simpler overall appearance, so I voted 1 band that matches, but it’s all a matter of personal taste and the mismatched look is very fashionable right now (which means many other people love it too). That being said, if you think you’re going to want 2 bands, it seems like now is the time to buy them. For one, the price is right; additionally, you don’t know how long the jewler will carry the bands, so it would be a shame to want one later and not be able to get it. Go with what speaks to you!

    @MrsWBS:  I also just thought about this… how comfortable would it be to wear each ring?  The more rings you add (especially thick rings), the tighter they all get on your finger!  The mismatched ring might look beautiful with your engagement ring, but that looks like a really thick ring.  Could it interfere with mobility or circulation to your finger?  How easily can you slide it up over your knuckle while wearing your engagement ring?  Bare in mind that this could also happen with the matching bands.  If the wedding band was made to match your engagement ring, it’s more likely to be comfortable, but it could become uncomfortable if you get TWO of them.  Personally, I would never be able to wear three rings because even though I LOVE gems and sparkle, it would just be too tight.  My engagement ring was bought with just the one matching wedding band (and they fit together) and it’s like they come together to form one ring but with twice as much sparkle. 🙂

    I would definitely go with a matched set, for the same reasons some PPs have said.
