Ohhhh! How pretty! I think it is easier to function with rings that only have stones on the top/sides versus twe whole band. My ring constantly is scraping door handles or other things and I would hate think of damaging my stones. I think a band with stones on the top would go perfectly with your ring.

A semi eternity band is fine. Your ring is beautiful welcome to the hive girl!

My center stone is just over 1 ct and I think the wedding band it 1/3 ct TW? Maybe 3/8?

I looove the look of solitaires with wedding bands that have stones in them. My favorite is a twisted band like these:

I also love the look of an eternity or semieternity diamond band with a solitaire! No pictures to share, just adding a vote!

@MissAmbieJ:  Love your ring!!

I personally prefer half eternity bands because they’re more comfortable.

If money’s a factor, you can get a larger half eternity band than you would a full eternity band.

I think pretty much any size would go with your ring!! It’s elegant and simple so you could bling it up a lot without it being too much.

I have this one in yellow gold.  I think it would look great with your solitaire!  It is 4mm wide.

I hear that 1/2 eternity bands are irritating since you have to turn them around constantly. As for the worry about them getting roughed up, they’re diamonds! It takes a LOT to scratch one.

I love the look of a diamond band paired with a solitaire. Is it a concern for you that your e-ring must sit flush with the band? I personally prefer straight bands over curved ones, although I have a tiny gap in between my rings.

@MissAmbieJ:  It’s halfway. I didn’t see the point in spending extra money to get diamonds in places where it wouldn’t be seen.

@BrandNewBride:  they don’t spin if you solder them. I’m not sure if OP is planning to, but I intend on soldering my band.
