Which ring to do you like best?

I'm at the stage where I need to be ordering my wedding ring. I had mentioned it a while back, but some things happened, my mind changed and now I need to pick a new ring. I've found a few that I really like, but I'd like your opinion on what you think will look best with my e-ring. Here's a collage of some photos that Christian took when we had recently become engaged in Dec. 2007. He had just bought his camera and didn't know how to use it all that great, so these are definitely not his best work:

Now, the wedding bands that I like are the following. Which one do you think will look best with my e-ring?

(Keep in mind that I have to order it online, have it special ordered to my size 4 finger, and won't see it until approx. 3 weeks before the wedding)

Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think!

hmm. i think #2 looks the most similar in style/etc, though i'm really not sure if thats the idea (match them, or just have them not clash). i think overall my fav is #4 or 3.

haha then agian, i know approximately nothing about these types of things. good luck in choosing! i think the options you picked out all look great!

They are all beautiful! You should go with your gut instinct -- it's your ring, you should go with the one you like!

I didn't get diamonds on my band because I wanted to be able to wear it around Santiago (I didn't dare wear my engagement ring out and about) but it's a silly reason not to get diamonds on something you'll have the rest of your life. That being said, you can always get a cheaper band just to wear around daily if you're worried about theft (I definitely was) but if not, don't worry about it! Then you can always have it made into something else later if you want!

Haha, everyone in Chile thought my platinum was "silver" It just made me laugh--I guess platinum isn't too common in Chile

I like 2, but again feel like you should go with your gut on this one.

I think all of these would look nice.

#2 is my favorite because it seems to match your e ring the best with the round channel set diamonds and would also look nice by itself.

I think if you will wear the band alone often, #5 is nice because it doesn't have any curves to it like the others. Also if you want your rings to sit flush against each other without a gap- then #5.

Whenever I need to make a big decision with different options I try to put the images next to each other. You should take the pic of your ering and match the different images of the bands so that they sit as they would if on your finger and compare.

#5! Classic and can be worn alone.

I like 2 and 4, but agree with Clare on going with your gut instinct.

#2 fits the style of your engagement ring the best. Ring 5 would be my choice because it doesn't have curves. Does your ring have curves...does it need a curved ring to fit with it?
