I never thought choosing a wedding band would be so difficult. I have been creeping this site for weeks now trying to decide and I just CANT! I have a 1.20ct round Solitaire on a 2mm white gold band. I have narrowed it down to a .60 ct triple row pave band OR the 11 stone 1.05ct 1/2 eternity band. Both are from Gabriel&CO. Which one should I go with & WHY??? I will attach pictures of my ring and both of the options. I should add that I will be changing my setting to a 6 prong setting before the wedding. Thanks in advance!! :)

I would need to see photos of the second one but right now I'd say definitely the second. The first seems to swollow your diamond right up!

I'm kind of a less is more person, so I'd go with the single row ring. I also think there's a bit too much of a clash of styles going on with the pave ring... I think it's the gentle curved dome of the band versus the more acute curve (or is it a knife edge?) of the e-ring that's bothering me.

That can happen, photos looking different.

Where a very discerning bunch, here, too. So if your heart is set on the knife edge one, no one will say it looks bad ::)

If it's between the two, the second. The first looks a little costume and I don't know how the pave will hold up/look when not scrupulously clean.

I also think plain metal would look very nice, 1.5 or 2mm, with an eternity style maybe added later.

Do you need platinum or gold?

I have been trying to decide the same thing. My e-ring is a 1.5 ct solitaire. After long discussions with a fellow pricescoper, I have decided that I want my band to be about the same width as my e-ring - so fairly narrow. The picture below is the one I've tried on so far that I liked (band with 3 pointers in it)
