I am having the hardest time deciding on which wedding band to get. I know what I want: a rose gold band between 2mm and 3mm without any stones. I’m leaning towards 3mm or a really heavy 2mm. I want it to look substantial enough to be worn alone.
Which of the following would you suggest?
Milgrain – Haven’t been able to try on in rose gold
Detailed – this is just a random example from the internet, I haven’t been able to try on in person
Straight plain band
Curved plain band – I would get it without the inset diamond.
I am completely open to suggestions as well, so if anyone has seen anything they think would look good, please let me know. I have enough time that I can still order online or custom make something.

Oh man, it’s close.
Thanks for all your help. I’m still no closer to deciding. My poor guy, I keep dragging him along to different stores to try and find a band. He picked his in about an hour!
One of my worries is that I know I don’t like flat, square bands with my engagement ring, I prefer the look of domed, rounded bands.They just seem to match together better. I’m worried both the milgrain and the detailed one will be flat and just seem off as a set.
Another worry is that the curved band will look weird if I want to wear it alone, which I plan on doing occasionally. I know I could just spin in to hide it, but I don’t want to have to fuss with it.

I like the milgrain band! I think the idea of going with a straight band is good, too, in case you want to wear just your wedding ring without your e-ring.

In case you ever wanna wear it alone, I would not go with curves! I voted for milgrain

@franklyn: I like the curved band! You can twist it around so it’s a straight band when worn alone, but it also suits your e-ring.

I’m thinking that I can rule out the plain straight band! That’s a start, right?
Thanks for all the help ladies! It’s pretty close to a three way tie and I like them all..
