You need to look for contoured rings to go on either side, since it seems you’re not a gap girl. Contour rings have a bit of a curve to them, so they wrap closer to your band.  I would tell a jeweler what you want. They might not have exactly the right shape, but often they can be modified to fit. 

I think rose gold would look lovely with it. And, before I forget… Your ring is gorgeous!

Aacoonra:  I also have an art deco ring, and it’s a similar shape to yours. 

My ring is from the 1940s. I went to a bunch of antique jewelry places and found a wedding band from the 30s-40s. It’s currently getting resized but it looks a bit like this one (but mine is all white gold, same look though and also with five small diamonds):

I don’t like curved wedding bands with art deco rings because I think they sort of ruin the symmetry. I wasn’t sure what would look right with my ring, but this style looks like it was made for my ring. The band I chose is very petite, with just five small diamonds in the front (with the art deco side detailing shown above). It doesn’t take away from the beauty of my e-ring, just adds to it. I think with rings like ours you just have to try on a bunch of styles to see what looks “right”. I thought I wanted a channel set eternity band, but when I put them on with my e-ring they looked really odd and mismatched. Just trial and error- gorgeous ring btw!

I LOVE your ring OP! I suggest you take it to a jeweler that does custom work and see if they can help you design some custom shaped bands to go with it.
