@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

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!
