Hi Everyone! I’m actually posting this for a friend who has yet to create a weddingbee account, but wants to take advantage of the insights and style of all of you lovely ladies!
She’s having trouble deciding between two wedding band options. Some style context: She has a very polished, classic, feminine style. She almost never leaves the house looking undone- she always has her hair styled and make up done. She wants something with real wow factor.
She feels like option A offers a little more wow- bigger stones, sparklier, etc. But option B is a much closer style match to her engagement ring, and she likes the idea of the two rings matching.
What do you all think?
Note: Both options will sit pretty much flush with her engagement ring. In the picture, it looks like option B has a gap, but the ring in the store was just too big and so the picture is a little misleading.

Ring B. I love the first band but it just doesn’t work with the style of her engagement ring.

I personally don’t like matching sets I feel it looks to plain and generic I like when brides mix the styles or metals it gives you a different unique look other than the same old thing you could find at any jewelry store.

Both examples shown are too big and clunky next to the e-ring, IMO.
I like the mismatched option better, however a more slimmed down version (skinnier band, slightly smaller diamonds, lower profile) would look better by a mile.
Bigger is not always better. Choose a wedding band that complements the e-ring rather than competing with it. Let the e-ring shine.

I was going to say mismatched until I saw the pictures. I think option B just looks cleaner and seems to fit what you describe of her. 🙂

I don’t like the matching bands in different sizes, I love option A! But I’d probably size down in both of them. Good luck to her!

I actually really like A. I think once it’s the right size it will look amazing and compliment her ring beautifully. I think it looks more deliberately mismatched; whereas, I would worry that the second band might just look like it’s meant to match but the proportions are off, if that makes sense. They’re both beautiful though – can’t go wrong either way!

I personally think they are both too thick and take away from the Engagement Ring. Maybe option B if they can match the thickness of the e-ring shank?
I’m usually partial to mismatched sets, but I think they need to mismatch enough to make it look purposeful. Option A isn’t SO different that it does that, it just competes with the e-ring.

My engagement ring and my wedding band will be mismatch. I don’t really care though because I lovee both of the rings! Personally I like the first one better, it’s more eye popping! But either way they are both very pretty!

I love B. BUT I’m matchy matchy!

I don’t really care for either for the simple fact that they both seem much wider than the ering.
I agree the first is very beautiful but just doesng compliment the ering design much. So I would go with B but I would see if they have one the same width as the ering. That’s just me though.
She should go with what makes her happiest at the end of the day. It’s her that will wear it everyday after all. 🙂

I personally like both and I think you can really go with either one!

I think A actually matches better… it just fits
