OT: What would you do?

I am building my wedding ring on bluenile.com. Our budget is about $3000. I'm stuck between two rings. I could get .75 carat round solitare on a white gold band or I could get .5 carat round solitare on a diamond band. Do I want the bigger diamond with the classy band? Or do I want the smaller diamond with the more modern band? Decisions decisions. Both are D color, VS1 clarity, and Ideal cut.

I like small and simple too plus you don't want the wedding band to outshine your engagement ring

yeah but it's either bigger and simple or smaller and more modern (diamond band)

I like ones with more diamonds on the band.

Well, which do you like better? If I were choosing it would be an old fashioned/more simple ring. Good luck! At the risk of sounding older than my 30 years, I didn't know women picked out their own engagement rings these days!

Mine sounds like the modern with more diamonds you are talking about and I love it :)

well women who are already married do lol we got married at the courthouse in October and are just now getting around to buying a ring :) our wedding is in June so we gotta get one before then and he wants me to pick it out since I'll be wearing it for at least the next 5 years.

I don't know...I've never been a fan of diamond rings.  My wedding ring is tanzanite and my anniversary ring is sapphire.

Can you post pics of the bands?

I went for a 1 carat and every day I wish it were a bit smaller.  I think that either would be very pretty, but I think that the diamond band would just be way more sparkly and pretty.
