I’m personally not a fan of the contoured bands (and I wouldn’t think you’d want that since you already commented that part of why you didn’t like the original band is that you couldn’t wear it alone).

I think a channel set wedding band would look beautiful with your e-ring (although I’d probably get a half-eternity instead – same look, way less expensive and less likely to accidently lose a diamond).

Well are you looking to wear the two together – or would you just like to sometimes wear a single band?  I would go with round diamonds to match your current ring – plus, the round cuts are going to give you a little more sparkle in a channel setting. 

I have the same issue – my wedding band is so small/thin next to my e-ring that you almost can’t tell the difference when they are placed together.  My fiance and I agreed that later on, I could have two customized contoured bands (one to go on either side of the e-ring) that are the milled/pave set diamonds like the sides of my current ring. What he doesn’t know is that I really want an eternity ring to have to wear when I don’t want to wear the big e-ring too!

I’m not a fan of contoured bands that I’ve seen, but maybe a contoured, channel set (round diamonds) band would look fantastic with your ring. Otherwise, a regular channel set band would be very nice. It’s beautiful, by the way!

So for clarity – my e-ring and band were a set – so when I say contoured, I mean that they literally fit together like two puzzle pieces.  My ring is pretty intricate and the band matches exactly.

When you guys use that term, do you mean that style or bands that sort of follow the curve?
