Which band do you think works best? (I don’t want a plain diamond band or a plain metal band. I want something that’s slightly unexpected, but still coordinates.)

I personally love that diamond band. It’s what I want! I also think the style goes without being a match. The etched band is a completely different style.

I really like the diamond band more. I think it looks better with your ring, which is beautiful btw

I think that the etched band would be lost against your e-ring, so I voted diamond band.

I like the diamond band best.

I love the etched band, but I think the diamond one would look best.

Thanks for the input so far everyone! It’s a tough choice!
(And the 2 rings are significantly different in price, the diamond one is 3x the amount of the etched one, which is also a factor I need to consider as well. I’m buying the band myself to even-out the ring costs between fiance and I.)

I like them both….it’s kind of hard to envision without seeing them together. I like the etched. I think you may have more versitility with the etched……you could wear either one separate.

I made my decision, and the winner is…… NEITHER!
I drug fiance to the jewelry store so I could show him these two bands I originally posted and how they look next to my e-ring so I could get his opinion.
And then I tried on this one at the jewelry store on a whim and loved it! It looks perfect with my e-ring, it’s not something I would have really thought to look at for my wedding band since it’s got the colored stones! (2nd one from the left.) It’s tsavorite and diamond.

@abbyful: I love the colored-stone ring you picked – Great choice!

Great choice! I have a very similar e-ring and have been debating a matching diamond band, a bezel set diamond band, or something similar to what you ended up picking (but with sapphires)…funny that we’re kind of on the same wavelength! Anyhow, love all your options and I’m sure the one you picked will look gorgeous!!!

I would love to say the etched band, because it is my wedding band however I definitely think you made the correct choice for your ring.
