    I think the thicker band looks great. I thought that was supposed to be the smaller one at first. Go with the bigger one–it’ll sparkle a little more. Sometimes when you go real small (esp with bezels) you lose the stones

    I personally like the smaller one:) but thats only because it looks like you have a tacori ring and i have the exact same ring and i picked a smaller band with mine, but the big one looks great also:)  I say do what you want!!!!

    I would go with the bigger one. As amanda stated, you will have more sparkle and less likelihood of losing a stone.

    the bigger one seems more solid – you don’t want to have to replace anything

    usually i say dainty, but i’m voting thicker for a few reasons. First… if your band isn’t going to match your ring then i think it should look purposefully mismatched. 2 v. 3 mm seems a little like you were trying to match but didnt. 2 v. 4mm seems like it was intentional. Plus the 4mm would probably be nicer to wear alone when you want to do that. plus the sparkle. plus its the same cost. i’d just get the bigger one ๐Ÿ™‚

     

    although if you have an option of buying both to try and then returning on i might do that (bc um, i DID do that with blue nile for my wedding band haha)

    @LittleAudrey: that is what insurance is for my dear ๐Ÿ™‚ I shipped the ring I decided against back to bluenile and insured it and got delivery confirmation– that way i would be DEFINITELY covered if something happened to it. It cost $17, which is kind of expensive, but totally worth it to be sure about my band. As an aside, the ring I sent back looked JUST like these two rings (the 3mm one actually)! I love love love the band but i didnt like it with my ring specifically. I did tell Fiance that if he got me a similar ring maybe with gemstones for a future gift I would not object though…. haha

    @LittleAudrey: Yea its just an add-on at the post office. I think that whenever you mail a package (or really anything) you can add on all sorts of options. I did delivery confirmation (so I’d have a record they received it) and then insurance. You tell them how much you want it insured for and the rate is based on that. I *think* the guy told me you can insure anything more than $200… but I can’t remember. I’d  check the usps.com site. Yours should be cheaper… mine was insured for $1000.

    You should look at the quality of the diamonds before choosing between the two.  It’s possible the smaller one is the same price as the larger one because it has better quality diamonds in it.
