So I have a channel-set wedding band with princess-cut diamonds about 1/3 of the way around. Like this:
My engagement ring is neither gold nor diamond, so we’ve always intended to upgrade it (for durability and so I can have the two bands joined). I’m kind of starting to shop around. I know that I want a very simply round-cut solitaire and was thinking along these lines…
But I’m having a hard time picturing the plain band next to my diamond wedding band. I think I’ll love them together, but it would help to see examples. Anyone have photos of a diamond band with a plain e-ring? Even if your band is a different cut/setting, it’d help to get a general idea.
The alternative would be to get a channel-set e-ring to match my band. But it would probably need to be custom and would get pretty expensive.
P.S. You can hardly tell that the diamonds on my band are princess-cut because of the channel setting, so I’m not concerned about the contrast between that and the round-cut e-ring. Just wondering about the contrast of diamond band next to plain band.

Here’s mine. Sorry if it’s a bit blurry. I just got my wedding band yesterday and love the diamond band with my solitaire.

I like that combination, it’s a classic with a bit of extra sparkle, yet not overdoing it! I find if both bands are diamond, that’s too much. Just one? Just right! (In my situation, my e-ring band has melee on it, so my wedding band won’t.)

For reference, my band has 15 round diamonds and I’m a size 3.25/3.5.

@hikerchick: Oooh, that’s pretty! Thanks for the photo!
@oneofthesethings: Love this too and it’s exactly the view I wanted to see. And I think it looks great! Thank you for the photo! (Are the diamonds in your band round? Looks like we’ll have very similar sets, but opposite cuts in band/ring!)

@ana77: Thanks!! I love my rings. And yes, the channel set diamonds are round. It never even occurred to me to look for princess-cut LOL
