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.

I posted this ring on another thread the other day, Im obsessed with it and wish I had a little extra cash laying around. 🙂 Non-traditional and customizable with diamonds, gemstones or crystals depending on what you like/want.

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! 🙂
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. 🙂

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.
