    @Karebearry:  I’d go with a thinner plain band (in the pic it looks a bit thick) or with the baguettes. I prefer the pic w. the baguettes.

    I have a very similar, tapered-baquette, e-ring setting, but in platinum, with a round center stone. 

    I love that setting with an emerald-cut diamond, and I love the baguette wedding band with your e-ring!!

    I think a thinner plain band that better matches the metal of your e-ring would look great!

    I’d be interested to see what you end up goin with…I have a very similar e ring and have been leaning towards a plain band myself because I felt the baguettes were too showy to wear with the engagement ring. But I haven’t tried any on yet…so who knows!

    @Karebearry:  Because my center-stone is round, I chose a 1-ct., half-eternity band in a shared, petite-prong Setting. 

    ETA:  Also, don’t forget about my baguette thread on which you posted. Looking at that thread my further inspire you.  I know Palored also has a beautiful, emerald-cut center stone in a tapered-baguette setting, but I haven’t ever seen her post her wedding band.  I wonder what style she chose.

    I like the plain one, but maybe a smidge thinner

    While I normally prefer diamond bands, I’m not crazy about the baguette one.  It definitely matches, but it’s just kind of blah.  I too think a thinner plain band would look very pretty/

    @Karebearry:  I also agree with @funnyhoney52:  that a thinner plain band would showcase your engagement ring nicely.

    I love you ring! Do you mind telling me what the center stone carat is for your emerald?

    I love the baguettes! I tried one on with my ring, but it didn’t look nearly as nice as yours does. I went with a plain 2mm wg band and then dressed it up with my eternity band and anniversary band. (lol – yep, 4 rings). But even one small pave ring as an anniversary gift between the plain wg ring and your e-ring might look nice too.
