First things first: It does NOT look terrible! Not at all.
I totally get it, though. I found it unbelievably hard to find a band that coordinated with everything. Back when DH and I got married, I didn’t have to worry too much about it, as a band with stones wasn’t in our budget. I had a gold wedding band that DH picked, and I wore it alone. When he gave me the anniversary ring I wear now and I started looking around to create a “set” with it, I was surprised at how difficult I found it to be. (As evidenced by all my “false starts” — ha, ha!)
I wonder if some of the sets pictured look “off” because of the space between the new band and your ERing. From the top, the space might not seem like it would make a big difference, but it feels pretty substantial when pictured from the side. It might be something to consider.
Would it be possible for you to get cheap bands that look like the ones you’re thinking about adding? That way, you could put them together with your set and actually wear it around for several days to figure out what you really like and what is really most comfortable on your finger. (I didn’t know if this would make your DH give you the side-eye, though — ha, ha!)
By the way, I’m with you in LOVING your current eternity band. I think it is gorgeous!

that’s a good idea. I wonder where I could get a cheapy version from? A CZ would be good just to try.

I don’t think this looks good. I am all for a stacked set, but your engagement ring is being dwarfed in comparison. I woul put two bands with that ring max!

IMO your stackers are too thick and your finger looks choked.

I mean this with all respect when I say I know you love all these bands because they’re gifts from your husband but you have other fingers. You don’t have to wear them all together. It’s really overwhelming. And I only like the new band in the first picture.

in my opinion they all look too busy, but if you like that look my vote would be the first one.

I don’t understand the need for another ring. It all looks very mismatched and doesn’t really enhance any of the rings you already have. Why not get a rhr which will actually stand out?
Also, I absolutely adore emerald cuts, but I didn’t notice you were wearing one till I saw the photo of your normal set. Just way too much else going on.

If the rings were thinner, I think you could pull it off like mrssloan2013 ‘s set, but I think your rings are too chunky all together and it kinda looks like a knuckle ring. Any ONE of those with your ering would look great I think!

I think your current rings are a little thick to add a 4th band. Maybe get some thin stacking bands and swap your various rings in and out? And also, your current set as-is is already really breathtaking.
