I have a round solitaire set on a thin pave band.  I wear a size 4.5 and I think the thinner band really makes the diamond “pop”.  I think the width is either .5 or 1 mm.  I’ve attached a pic so you can see if it would be something you would like.

check out blue nile. these are both yellow gold and not at all tacky looking in my opinion.

(I LOVE the first one)

I suggest that you look for something with a matching wedding band.  I have a dainty thin band and it did NOT have a matching band.  Now we have to get something custom-made for the wedding band and that is expensive!  I’m in Canada so I can’t really help you out with particulars.

Something with a matching wedding band is my advice.

Here’s my ring, which sounds a lot like what you might be looking for – I don’t know where my FH purchased it, sorry, but its 14k yellow gold, and a .75 rounf cut diamond, about 2mm band, and is size 5.

Hey girly.
My FH got my ring from Rogers and Hollands. They have a great variety. I wanted something so unique and “antique” as well. I told him I didn’t want a cirlce or square because everyone has them! The Marquise diamond is the most rare and elegant diamond there is. I know it became famous because some Queen in some country made it famous. Not sure which one, lol! But anyway. Here is a picture of mine. Don’t look at their website because they don’t update it. They have a great selection in the stores. Also, at Jared… You can create your own ring. This way you get exactly what you want. I know mine is nothing like what you’re looking for, but it’s really unique and I think you might like the antique looks of it. Let me know if you need any more help. I’d love to help you out.

@mrsT2b- I LOVE the first ring you posted. πŸ™‚ 

Mine is from bluenile too. Its a cushion cut on platinum pave band. I’m sure you could get the same thing in yellow gold though! I love cushion cut stones… I think they’re very unique/romantic.

@lander5 I just want to say that I am in the SAME EXACT boat as you. My SO and I have been looking at rings and even though he knows the exact diamond he wants to purchase he wants me to pick out the setting and I just cannot decide. He’s getting a round diamond and I think it’s somewhere between .75 and .85 carats (he’s being vague since he wants to surprise me πŸ™‚ ) My ring size is 4 1/2 so I also want something small and thin because of my tiny hands. At first I thought I wanted something like this:

Diamond Accents

but we realized that the wedding band would not fit snug against the e-ring. I’m now leaning toward something like this:

Ehhhhh I can’t make up my mind!! πŸ™‚ I know they’re not antique, but I hope this helps…. and let us know what you end up with!

Mine’s a .75 carat round diamond with side princess-cut sapphires in a platinum setting. I think the band is about 2.5 mm. I wear a size 4 ring and was worried about a too-big e-ring but this one is perfect. I agree with other comments about getting an e-ring with matching wedding band. Mine is hard to pair with a band too and I’m having one custom made. [attachment=840432,105433]
