Of all the wedding things I could be thinking about, this is my topic of interest for the weekend.
My e-ring has a plain, matching band I could purchase. It’s 2mm thick, the exact same thickness as the thickest part of my e-ring.
Or… I could order a micropave ring. Something that looks like this.
Most of the ones I’ve found are 1mm, so they’re really tiny.
My e-ring is thicker at the bottom than the top, so it’s probably about 1mm at its thinnest point.
It looks like this:
Which one would you pick?
Also, let me see YOUR wedding set! Bonus points if you also have a solitaire.

I’d go with plain, because I prefer the e-ring band to match the wedding band; I personally think it looks odd otherwise.
My e-ring band is micro-pave, so, my wedding band will be too, to match.

I voted for the micropave band. I love the look of “mismatched” sets. And your e-ring is beautiful!

I love tiny pave bands! I have one myself – trying to find a picture of it now…
Edit: Got it! Here’s my 1.5mm e-ring and 2mm wedding band:

I would get the plain matching one, and then add a slim eternity in the future for a special anni.
I love the simplicity of a plain band!

@MrsOliveBird: What she said! That is exactly what I plan to do.
My e-ring is 2.5 mm tapering to 2 mm at the stone. My w-band is 2 mm.

I like the micropave, which is why I got it for myself. The only thing I might caution you on is if it will both you with either band if it doesn’t fit up against your e-ring. The prongs on my e-ring prevented any straight band from sitting right up next to it so I chose one (designed to fit some other ring) that dipped out at the middle so that elsewhere the rings are flush.

I love blingy wedding bands, so I voted for the micro pave. However, from what I’ve been told by one of my close friends who has pave (or micro pave — I’m not sure how small the pave has to be to be called micro) all over her e-ring and her wedding band that her rings have lost stones many times. If you’re looking for something more durable, you may want to get the plain matching band.
Is there any chance you could get both the plain and the micro pave? You could wear one for dressier occasions and the plain band on others.
Here is my set, first shown alone, and second, along with my tiny, prong-set anniversary band that I received last fall. (I wanted somthing to show just a hint of sparkle in front of my e-ring, but I didn’t want it to hide or compete with my e-ring.)

I voted for the micropave but myself have a plain band. I love the mismatched look, but for me the different metal was enough. I like simple and understated, which I feel a lot of diamond wedding bands are not. But the one(s) you showed are very classic and complementary, rather than showy. I think it would add to your engagement ring rather than take away from it, like a lot of others. (My bands are both 2mm, if that matters.)

I love the way my plain band looks with my solitare, and how comfortable /receive classic looking it is when worn alone.

I’m a huge fan of the matching set that @LittleRiver has. I just think it looks so clean and understated. So I voted for the plain band 🙂

I like the micropave and plain, but I think I like to cohesive look like the plain band would provide along with your engagement ring a bit more.

Wow! We have such similar e-rings! I’m using a family ring (small diamond chipped semi-eternity in white gold), but i’ll be making a sandwich and getting a second band for the top … i’m leaning towards a micropave. Can’t wait to see all the pics here!
