I’m not sure of your budget, but I have been exchanging emails with this jeweler (http://www.hkjewellery.co.uk/) about having a unique, custom band made and they were the first place I thought of when you said you wanted a non-traditional ring with a smaller stone and a practical setting. They can work with you to make whatever you want, but here are a few examples:

 

And here’s the one I’d like to tweak/redesign for myself…the diamond sits flush in the band and does not stick out at all. Probably not exactly what you’re looking for, but you get the idea:

Here’s a gallery where they have thousands of rings to look at:

Not at all trying to push you to buy from them, but I would look through there for inspiration at least because they really do seem to have the kind of rings you’re describing.

Definitely look at bezels, as many bees have mentioned! Or, since you like stacking, tell your boyfriend you would like a band as an engagement ring and then later you’ll add one for a wedding ring and maybe another or an anniversary or a baby or an awesome promotion or something that is an acheivement in your life! 

I am starting a stack and my first addition is my wedding band, which is a yellow gold moissanite bezel eternity band with milgrain. To add to my wedding band I recently purchased a diamond band in white gold as kind of a present to myself to represent something. Maybe I will get a rose gold band sometime in the future and end up with a lovely tri-gold stack! The options are endless! πŸ™‚

Here’s examples of stacked sets:

There’s nothing wrong with a plain gold band.  I actually think its kind lof romantic and sweet when couples go this route.  Nowadays you see so much bling & fancy metals that a plain gold band is refreshing.

Maybe something like mine?  There’s nothing girly about the Claddagh design (and my husband also has a Claddagh ring) and the stones in this ring are pretty flat. πŸ™‚

Nothing wrong with it, you should get what suits your taste! The ring my ex gave me was just a band with some channel set stones, so they were completely flush into the band, you might like a style like that. Or you could get a plain metal band with cool engraving on it maybe.

Here’s a few cool ones I’ve found, they’re all rose gold cause I’ve been browsing for wedding bands for myself, but I think all these styles also come in other colors.

I’ve thought of getting Fiance and I a matched pair of lovely buttery yellow gold rings engraved with something meaningful for our anniversary. (To interchange with our palladium/tungsten wedding bands) I saw an advert for fair trade fair mined Gold and it really appealed to me. 

Think about what really appeals to or represents you and there will be a way to create it!

@bippy:  Glad you like it! It’s from Brilliant Earth but I’m sure there are tons of other companies that make similar eternity bands.
