Hey girls… so it’s getting close to my SO proposing and now I’m having second thoughts. I thought I was in love with the split shank because it wasn’t so typical, but now Im leaning toward the simplicity of the single band. Can I get some votes? 🙂
(PS, these are not my hands lol)

I was in your shoes. I liked how the split was different but liked the skinny look of a band. So I find mine, it has a split but it’s a very thin one

I love the single band. IMO, it will make getting wedding bands a little easier. My Engagement Ring has a single thin band, so I’m biased.

Both are gorgeous but I prefer single/pave!

I really love the look of the single pave band. It is lovely!

Mandysfestival: OMG! I love your ring! I almost got that setting from Robbins Bros. The designer was Michael M. Is that where you got yours? Love love love!
westcoast_girl: I dont like how long and wide the split is. (Just my taste) I would go with the pave band in this case.

westcoast_girl: I had the exact same ‘dilemma’ as yourself. I absolutely love the single pave band, but I love the uniqueness of the split shank. I had such a hard time deciding, I ended up leaving it in my boyfriend’s hands to make the final decision.
I ended up with the split shank (although it’s a reverse split shank, and very minor) but I also know that the single thin pave diamond wedding band will go very beautifully with the engagement ring, and ultimately, I will end up with both!

I like both, but have a plain, split shank, and I love it.

if you like mismatched bands, go with the split shank….cuz nothing will quite match a split shank.
If you want your wedding band to match your ering, get a single.

westcoast_girl: This is my reverse split shank ring. I think a thin single pave wedding band will go very nicely with it.. 🙂

I prefer the split shank. It just adds a little interest to the ring and has that little extra. Of course, I have a split shank, so I’m not biased at all. lol

I prefer the single Band.

I think the split is gorgeous, but that the single is more timeless.

I prefer the look of the single band. Although the split shank is beautiful, with the single band, there is no trapped, empty space between the bands to draw the eye away from the center stone, and you likely also will have an easier time finding a wedding band.

I’d prefer single, it looks better with wedding band.
