I chose a simple plain band after comparing the two on my hand.  I felt like a channel set band took away from the beauty of my e-ring.  Try both and see which you like.

Also – I like having the option of wearing just the band and being lowkey if I’m gardening, or traveling, or hiking, or whatever 🙂

Though I’ve heard other people say they like the option of not wearing their e-ring, but still having some bling.  So it just depends on personality.

i thinka  really really really thin band with sparkle (i’m talking less than a 1/4 carat) would be perfect with it.  that way if you wanted to take your e-ring off for any reason, oud’d still have some bling..

You should try out the different one and see what fits your style. Some people will have to go with thin bands and others thick bands.

But personally I think that what credre80 metioned is a very good idea – the really thin band with a sparkle!

Dang girl you got some blingy blingy!

I think 3 stone bands look good with subtle bling, also! But I love my diamond bands, and I always have a preference for them over plain =]

What about two super skinny diamond bands? My friend did that and it is muy awesome. She has one on each side so it’s balanced. Mine is like that, too, but I have two 3/4 carat bands with 7 stones.

and you could get them contoured to your band if you want.

Oooo htis is cool: round AND bagettes, maybe shake things up a little? http://www.shaneco.com/Catalog/ProductDetail.aspx?X=41002946&C0=1&C1=13&A1=Gem|Diamond&S=PD&I=60&A2=Stone+Shape|Round

If you don’t want it to blend in with your ring (ie you want there to be some space between), this would be a nice choice: http://www.shaneco.com/Catalog/ProductDetail.aspx?X=41045104&C0=1&C1=13&A1=Gem|Diamond&S=PD&I=60&A2=Stone+Shape|Round

I saw that you posted this back in July, so I don’t know if you’ve come up with a solution yet, but I’ve been in (and I’m still in) the same boat as you! Here are some blog posts about what I’m doing with my ring. Right now i’m trying to decide if I want to add some bling to the bands or not: [link removed]

I agree that a very thin eternity band or something along those lines with small diamonds in a skinny band. I think you’ll have a hard time overshadowing a 2.53 carat center stone, so don’t worry too much about that!

Wow. It must be too early. I put that you wrote that back in July, but I was looking at the wrong time stamp. You get married in July. My bad 🙂

You’re not necessarily taking away from the beauty of it, but adding to it. Yes, adding rings changes the look of the band, but you know, you might just like it MORE. I like my e-ring much more with two bands next to it than i ever did by itself. It just compliments it so much more and brings it out.

I agree with ejs – its not necessarily taking away the beauty of it.  I have a 2.1 carat cushion in a pave band, and I went with a full eternity band.  I tried plain, I tried matching, I treid a bunch.   Nothing looked right until I put mine on, it was almost like my dress.  I tried it and was like “yep, this is my band!”
