    Mine’s not round, but here’s what my eternity band looks like with my e-ring.

    My half eternity band is .385 – my actual ring has the same matching eternity band (with two less stones for the space of the solitaire so .33).  The solitaire is 1.5 carats.  I think you would be fine with the .33 option.

    are there any diamonds in the band of your ering? if so i’d try to match their size. In general I think 1/3 is a good size. It isn’t tiny, but also isn’t big.

     I agree, it looks delicate but doesn’t look too tiny…

    I have a half eternity, channel set band.  Total carat weight of .25.  Engagement Ring is total carat weight of 1.35.

    It sounds like the most important factor for you isn’t the actual carat weight but how wide or heavy the wedding band looks with your engagement ring. I would start by first trying on some eternity or half-eternity rings and taking note of a few things: the total carat weight, the number of stones, and how far around the band the stones go. From that you can determine the carat weight of each stone and use that factor to guide your choice.

    I have a half-eternity band that is .57 carats, prong set, with 11 stones, which works out to about 0.05 carats per stone. Each stone is about 3 mm wide. One of the other choices I looked at for my wedding ring had the same total carat weight but spread over only 9 stones. These stones would have been slightly larger but would not have stretched as far across the ring. I chose my ring because the stones were the same as the side stones in my engagement ring, and I wanted the stones to stretch farther around the band rather than be larger. So total carat weight will not be the only determinant of the width of a ring.

    I think you should make your decision not on the size of the solitaire but on the size of the engagement ring band. I would want a wedding band of approximately the same width. If you are buying online, most sites list the ring width as one of their specs as well. Good luck!
