    I picked #3 Channel set millegrain, I think it will sit beautifully with your e-ring and not over power it 🙂

    I love the shared prong. It’s a bit hard to judge without seeing any of these options next to your e-ring, but in my head I think the channel set might pack a little too much punch bulk wise.

    I also think it’s hard to tell without seeing the bands next to your e-ring.

    I voted for the prong set, and I think that style would look best next to your ring if the diamonds lined up evenly with the diamonds on your e-ring, rather than a band of diamonds that goes all the way across the top half of your finger.

    Have you been to a jewelry store yet to try on similar examples of those bands with your e-ring? If not, that would be my advice to you.

    When I was trying to decide on a wedding band, I pored over hundreds (maybe even thousands!) of pictures of bands online. I had dozens of examples bookmarked on my computer and felt overwhelmed. But then I went to a jewelry store and tried on examples of those bands. Some of the styles that I had fallen in love with online — actually didn’t look that great next to my e-ring, IMO.

    For example I was really obsessed with baguette bands. But when I saw them up close, they didn’t sparkle as much due to the way they are step cut.

    I also was maybe 80% sure I wanted a twisty infinity band like the one you pictured. I’ve seen some Bees who have that style and their sets are gorgeous. But that style ended up looking too busy next to my e-ring.

    On the other hand, I was surprised at how much I loved a simple, round brilliant cut prong set eternity band. It was just the right thing for me.

    Good luck with your search!

    Do you have the dimensions of the stones of those rings? The only thing I would be worried about would be if the stones are of similar size to the smaller ones on your ering, how that would look?

    But then again I’m biased to twist and plain bands Tongue Out

    Tough desicion as they are all so pretty! I think 1, 2 or 4 would look best with your ring. I’m going to vote 4 just because it’s so cool, especially with the “inside” secret twig pattern.

    Lovely e-ring!  My vote was for the milgrain, but I think #2 would be great too.  #2 looks a lot like my band:

    I have a three stone and picked a bezel eternity, so that’s what I voted for. I love them together! 🙂
