My Personal preference, is a simple band.  Your solitaire stands out so well on it’s own, I’d be concerned that a ‘blingy’ band would seem to be competing with it.

FYI, your username is awesome 🙂

I haven’t decided yet, but I’ve been leaning towards a VERY thin pave eternity band to go with my solitaire. I felt that the tiny diamonds made my center stone really pop!

As much as I’d enjoy a blingy band, I didn’t feel that the look of larger stones went well with the very clean lines we chose for my e-ring.

I believe by wedding band is about .25 carats.  So hopefully this will give you an idea of the size you want.  I’d recommend the .5 size just because I like the look of a smaller band with a solitare!

Mine r five stones and each band is a half carat. Personally, I felt like full carat bands were too large. But I also specifically wanted five stones on the bands too, so if u r looking at eternity bands or half eternity, a full carat may look great.

How big is your solitaire? Mine is 10 stones. Half carat. At first I thought it was too big but I love it now 🙂

I have a solitaire too and am looking at rings. My engagement ring is pretty thin (1.8mm) so I am looking at similar size wedding bands. My wedding band will likely only be .1-.2 carats. I want my engagement ring to remain the star.
