I am in the process of looking for a wedding band to match my engagement ring (pics below). I really want pavé diamonds in the band, and I am fairly certain that I want a half (or 3/4) eternity band that is curved to fit my oval diamond. Do any of you with curved eternity bands have trouble with them spinning? Or does the curvature help it stay in place? I don’t want to solder them together. Also, do you think I will have to go the custom route since it is an oval, or do you think a curved band like the ones below would work?
I also really like these bands: What do you think?

I like the second band you posted better than the first, but I think because of the oval you will not know unless you try it on. Is the oval low set? My mom had a marquise and it was set up high enough that she was able to have a prong set diamond band sit right next to it.
If your oval is set low, and you don’t like the way the curved band looks, you can ask a jeweler to set it higher. From what I can see of your setting it looks like it wouldn’t be difficult to do.

I like the second one. I tried the 1st one on in the store and it just didnt seem to work for my oval.

even if your band has a slight curve, it will still spin. the only way you can get two rings to not spin is if they interlock somehow, or are soldered together.

Thanks for your help!
@country_chic: I think I like the 2nd one better too! It seems a lot more delicate. The oval is low set. I do like it that way since it is more comfortable at work (and I am a klutz and may damage my ring by hitting it on things). However, I may consider changing the prongs if I don’t have to custom-order a band.
@melmel: Thanks! I haven’t tried on any in a store, so that will be the next step. The 2nd one is from BlueNile so I may order it and see how it works.
@janie-janie: Thanks for the advice! One of my friends commented on how she hated when her half-enternity band spun so you could not see the diamonds. I’m not sure if this would really bother me or not.

I vote for the 2nd one as well. It looks like it would compliment your e-ring very well. Sorry, I have no experience with curved rings and spinning though.
