Hi, there! I am trying to decide between two pretty different bands to go with my solitaire:
(Sorry for the huge pictures!)
The first is a thin and simple 3/4 eternity band that I really like with the solitaire. It doesn’t overshadow my engagment ring, which I like, but I’m just afraid one of the diamonds could easily fall out since the thing is so small. It’s about 1.5mm.
The second is a lot different than the first. It has bezel set diamonds in the alternating shapes all the way around (full eternity). It is a little more unique and substantial, but I’m not sure if it takes away from the engagement ring. I have more faith in its durability, and it looks better on its own if I decide not to wear the engagment ring somewhere.
Anyone have any experience with eternity bands? Thanks for any input!!

I like #1. I also prefer it because if you ever need it resized, it will be easier than a full eternity. They are both very pretty though.

I like the first one. I like the second too because it is more substantial, but I think it’s the two different shapes that draw my eyes to it more so in a way it draws away from the engagement ring. I think what I would like the best though is the first one but in a larger size (say equal in size to the mm on your engagment ring). But that could be more expensive too. Or you could do a half eternity or only 7 stones. Do you need the eternity style?

The second ring is so cool! My wedding band is exactly like your first one and I’ve yet to have a diamond fall out (1.5 yrs). I just wish it was a little wider (I like bands to be approx the same width)

I think the first one looks a little thin next to your ring. I love the look of that second one!

I absolutely love the second one!! I say go for #2 as your wedding ring and buy yourself a Berricle lookalike of ring #1 (their CZ eternity bands are so realistic), that way you can have both 😉

My set looks like the first one you posted, but if I had a stone the size of yours I would definitely get the second one! Both are very nice!

I like them both a lot. But I’d chose #1 because it complements the solitaire, whereas #2 has more going on and my eye is drawn to it instead of the solitaire.

I like the first the best. I think the bezel is pretty, but I don’t feel it works as well as the former with your engagement ring.

@marryinginmarch: I actually think the first band does overshadow your solitaire. The bezel set is unique and compliments it.
