Ok, so I am getting to the time where I should decide the type of wedding band to go with my solitaire. I am struggling because the band is sort of wide at about 4 mm I think. Originally was considering a diamond eternity band type thing, but when I told FI, he said he thought a simpler plain band would look nice. I searched some threads and have come up a bit short.
Does anyone have any pics/suggestions/ideas what kind of “plain” band could go with this type of solitaire e-ring? I would LOVE to see pics, either if you have a set like I’m describing, or found a good one on the internents….
Here is my ring, the center stone is just over a carat, the setting is 14K white gold:

@squishee: I adore your ring and if it were me, I would get a sparkly band in the same width as your e-ring 🙂

@wrkbrk: That’s what I was thinking.
Another idea if you like to “stack”… wear a plain same-width wedding band first, then a very thin eternity band between it and your solitaire.

@squishee: I have a nearly identical ering and set like you are describing the band is also 4 mm in width the anniversary band we purchased to go with it is 0.82 carats five stone

It will look lovely with a diamond band

I think you could do really whatever you wanted. I like a lot of coverage, so I have a 3.5mm shank, 1.27 ct solitaire. Wband is 4mm, 1 ct TGW:

I personally think this ring would look fabulous with your ring: http://www.thefacetscollection.com/product-p/f1898s.htm
You don’t want too wide of a diamond band so that it detracts from your beautiful diamond…but that’s just my opinion, and something I’ve learned over the years. I have a thick channel set diamond wedding band and a thin shared prong eternity band. While I love my thick channel set wedding band, I find the thinner eternity band compliments it more. I wish I had just gotten a thinner channel set band as my wedding band from the get-go.

I think a thin, sparkly band would look great.

I would get a super thin 1mm eternity band, very sparkly! 🙂

@squishee: I have the exact same setting 🙂 I have a plain 14K white gold band which I think is 2mm to wear with my e-ring.

I think a plain band of similar width would look lovely! ..my mom has a plain solitaire wedding set and ive always adored it..a channel set diamond band would look nice too if you want the extra bling..it would definitely sit flush better than a shared prong diamond band..goodluck!
