    I think with both bands it kind of distracts from your e-ring, that being said with the one band it looks gorgeous IMO.

    You could just solder one, and then sometimes wear the other one with them, or wear it on your other hand? That way you don’t really have to decide!

    IMO there is too much going on with 2 bands.  I know some people LOVE that look, but it’s just not for me.. :-/  The one band looks FABULOUS!  Gorgeous set!!

    Personally, I prefer one band.  Two seems like too much for me.

    And as a side note – please please please don’t have the jeweler solder them together…you’ll never be able to get them apart again…I’ve just heard too many horror stories and complaints from women who have done that  🙂

    One.  All 3 looks too wide and busy to me with that design on the bands.

    The two bands together definitely eats up your center stone. I would stick to just 1 band.

    Definitely one band.  Two bands is trendy but I think it’s too much of a good thing.

    Definitely just the one! If you are soldering, just solder one band. Then you can wear the loose band on top, on bottom (a popular stacking version these days) or on your RH.

    I love the one band! One band is so classic, and features your center stone on the engagement ring much better. 

    I soldered my band to my e-ring when I got married and it’s the best thing I could have done!!! The rings are completely preserved from rubbing and my set spins much less. Also, since mine were a little loose, there is no metal sounds from them rubbing when I move my hand. I love it!! We purchased another wedding band to wear alone for times when I don’t want to wear my whole set.

    My stand-alone wedding band:

    It pains me to say this, since I subscribe to the MORE IS MORE ethos, but I like the single band better.  It looks more classic, and as PP’s have said, really showcases your ering.  

    How does it look with 2 bands stacked behind the ering, instead of the ering sandwiched between them, like a stacker set maybe?  Just throwing ideas out there… but yeah, if you’re ok with using it as a RHR, and he is too, that’s the direction I’d go in.
