Need help choosing a wedding band (ring)

Hi Ladies,

I have the Twisted Vine engagement ring from Brilliant Earth and was recently in a city where they have a showroom, so I went to try on some bands. I went in with the expectation of getting the matching band (either plain or the petite luxe version). However, after trying on a few different designs I'm now torn between three options. One being the plain Twisted Vine, and the others being the Wren and the Hammered Quattro. I tried sleeping on the decision, but a week later I'm still completely undecided. I need help!

Twisted Vine:

-matches engagement ring

-fiance and my mom's first choice

-looks good solo

-'bulkiest' option

-still comfortable

Wren:

-non-traditional

-looks best with engagement ring

-sits flush against engagement ring

-doesn't really looking like a 'wedding band' on its own

-one I'm leaning towards slightly more than other two

Hammered Quattro:

-matches FH's ring (he's going with a hammered ring)

-looks the best solo

-looks better in person than the photo

-doesn't match the shape of the engagement ring

Smiley ring -Maid of Honor's first choice

What are your thoughts? What did you consider/weigh when deciding what band to get?

Thanks in advance Smiley smile

    I was down in San Francisco. There aren't any in Canada, but a few in the US. Going in person was definitely worth it, I thought I knew what I wanted, but that one wasn't even a top contender after I tried it on at the shop.

    I'm from Cambridge too BTW - small world haha.

    They look amazing!! Where abouts were you where there was a Brilliant Earth showroom? I also have my engagement ring from there and would like to get something matching, but trying to decide which one!

    I like the BE-Wren. Adds a little bit of pop and is unique

    Hey All! Just thought I'd give an update on my choice(s). I ended up getting both the Wren and the Hammered Quattro. I was seriously torn so I emailed Brilliant Earth to see if they could send me a photo of what they'd look like stacked. After seeing the photo my decision was made! They arrived earlier this week and I'm so in love with them! Now to wait like 8 months to wear them...

    Ok I live the wren most. Together with engagement ring it’s a perfect match AND solo it is also sooooo unique. I love it. Next up is the twisted band. They go together and alone it looks nice. I am really not a fan of the hammered one. It looks too plain doesn’t compliment your ring and looks to masculine but al the end of the day your choice. Let us know what you decided.

    I like the twisted vine. they match nicely.

    My engagement ring is a beautiful solitaire and wanted to compliment my diamond so i went with smaller diamonds to go with it.

    I think the second picture is the best option. it fits so well with your engagement ring

    Wren looks amazing with your E ring... my only question would be how comfortable are you wearing it on its own if you decided not to wear your engagement ring? I do think it pairs best with your e-ring.. but if I were to get something that I could wear solo (that also looks amazing with the e-ring) I would go with the hammered quarto. Smiley smile

    I like the Wren one as the matching ring. I wouldn't necessarily wear it alone but it looks amazing with your engagement ring.

    First of all, gorgeous engagement ring!

    For the wedding band, personally, I like the Wren the best, but you can't really go wrong with any of them. My reasoning is this: there's less of a gap, even if it doesn't *quite* match. Plus, the extra jewels add a little embellishment that's really nice.

    When looking for my own, I looked for something that fit close the best. They're *supposed* to sit right next to each other - although they certainly don't have to! - And I would personally prefer that.

    I agree with others, that I love the wren. I really like when a ring fits in snuggly together though.

    I think the wren looks really nice with your ring! I guess it depends how often you won’t wear your engagement ring

    I hadn't considered metal wear, that's a really good point. E-ring is platinum, doing the same for wedding band, so hopefully wear would be minimal.
