Beautiful ring! I like the first stand-in; I think a rolling ring would just make everything look too bulky as your engagement ring is already rather wide. Plus, if you’re worried about it catching on things, there are fewer gaps created by the single ring than by the rolling band, which hopefully minimizes that possibility.

I don’t think the ones you posted will really work well with an eventual stack with your e-ring (which is gorgeous btw). They may look off because they’ll be pretty flat against the finger and the e-ring sticks out a good deal. If that makes sense. Not to mention that 1mm is really, really thin (it’s more like a spacer) so it would probably disappear next to the e-ring.

The first one is lovely! The rolling band is a bit bog for a stack. On it’s own would be great, but I don’t think it will work very well with a stack.

I also really like this one:

bsh8rc:  I wore a 1mm spacer (also from tinysparklestudio) as a “stopper” for my e-ring before I resized it and I really didn’t like the look. My e-ring has a knife-edge and sticks out and the spacer just looked so unbalanced. I was glad I had just bought the cheapest $10 one they had haha. So just keep in mind that it may not look as good as how you imagine!

A band around 2-2.2mm would be nicer IMO. And that’s really not all that thick.

I have bands similar to the hammered ones shown and I think they will look too dainty as a stack with your eternity band.  I think the issue being the height of the ring not the width.

ETA: Have you tried a knife edged band?

I think a single hammered band as shown above would work great as a spacer for when you are stacking but then I would buy a more substantial band to wear on the other side.

Like this, minus the solitaire:

I have a 1mm band (from Etsy too) that I wear with my e-ring (my real wedding band doesn’t fit with my e-ring so I alternate between wearing my band alone and wearing my e-ring with the 1mm ring). Anyway I love the way it looks. It’s subtle so it really allows the e-ring to stand out, yet it’s still visible – it doesn’t disappear, especially if the metal is a different colour (my 1mm band is rose gold so it stands out again my white gold e-ring). Plus I think 1mm bands look cool alone. So I say go for the 1mm!

Congrats!

Love your ring I have a similar engagement ring. Just wanted to add I work in the ER and have been wearing my ring to work. It’s only been a few weeks for me.  

Be sure to get your ring insured. 

If you decide on a work band, I like the tri-color option.

bsh8rc:  I like the rolling ring idea. I have a 1 mm hammered band and they really are tiny. I think three of them looped together would be better since it would add some height next to your diamond band. Here is a picture of it next to a standard 2.5 mm comfort fit band. (Keep in mind that your diamond band is likely twice as high as this yellow gold band.)

Here is another picture of it next to a dime for perspective. Hope This Helps.
