I agree with a PP who said go for the plain band look.  I think with your center stone two extra rows of small diamonds might look strange, and I wouldn’t want any attention to be detracted from that large stone.

Because your center stone is so large and the bands you are looking to add are small at least a few of the diamonds in it will be covered/masked by your center stone which sort of defeats the purpose of having them.  

I have a plain band and a large center round stone  which isn’t that much smaller than yours (1.25) and it covers up a portion of my plain band as you can see below but your stone extends out far more than mine does. If I had another plain band on top the round stone would cover a portion of that as well.

But still I say that if you are really looking for that look then go for it because I don’t think you are adding too much extra bling.

Your E-Ring and chosen W-Band are GORGEOUS !!

Here’s a thought… I have a rather “sparkly” E-Ring, and have been considering having 2 W-Bands (cause I too like the 3-Ring look).  BUT due to practical reasons, I’m thinking I might do one as an Eternity Band with Diamonds, and the other just plain gold.

Reason being… the gold one I can wear 24/7×365 and never worry about it (if fact being pure gold it will be quite durable, and survive a lot of abuse that a Diamond one won’t).  The blinged out one will look nice, but like my E-Ring, the Diamonds may sometimes be a factor… and I might not want to wear it ALL the time (ie Gardening, Deep Cleaning, Home Renovations, Snorkelling & Scuba Diving in the Ocean, or Travelling in some far flung countries).  In which case, I can still feel comfortable with my Plain Gold Wedding Ring… vs not having anything to wear at all.

Something to think about… FOREVER is a long time… as you grow older (I am now 50+ and this is my second marriage) you’ll probably realize the practicality of having two W-Bands makes a lot of sense (ie Mr TTR and I travel a lot now that we are semi-retired, there are certainly places we go to, that a big hunking Diamond would attract the wrong kind of attention as a tourist… not so much in North America, but certainly abroad)

Nice therefore to have options… I’d feel lost without a W-Band to wear, if I had to leave all the diamondy ones here at home in my Safety Deposit Box.

Hope this helps,

Nah, thats not too big at all!

I also thought you meant a 7.7 carat stone. And I was like “do you really need something that cost the same as some developing countries revenue?”

ok I have 2 bands on either side of my ring….they are semi eternity

both rings are .75ct and 15 diamonds each and that would be approx 0.05ct each diamond…here is a pic for reference….my ering is 1.02ct princess…I sometimes think that it overwhelms my centre diamond so I have to put them both to one side…I will include that pic too so you can see the difference…hope that helps

Personally, I think one band would look best. I would even go for 5 pointers with your size stone, but that is because those proportions would be closer to my taste. Your ring is beautiful!

I LOVE this look!! I am not a fan of plain bands. If my ring were a solitaire with no side stones, you bet I’d have a chunky eternity band next to my solitaire! I love this look:

I don’t know how I feel about 2 diamond bands, I’m more traditional and love the look of one. If I were given a 2nd band for an anniversary now….I wouldn’t turn it away 😉

Mine is 1/3ct total – 0.03 each, so I think 0.07 sounds too big and might drown your ering.  For me, I think it’d be too bulky if it was 7pts on both sides.  I dont have a plain band, but y center is almost the same size , 1.3ct

I too am getting two wedding bands to go around my ring, I am looking into .025 or .03 carat diamonds for them.

I don’t think it would be too much with one band, but two would be over the top in m y opinion.
