I have a 4ct eternity G/H color diamonds and then I have two other .55ct bands F/G color. I have other photos but not on this device unfortunately. The last photo shows the 4ct and one of the .55 ct bands.

I had a shared prong eternity band for about 1 year. 2 tcw. 21 diamonds. It looked pretty and was sturdy but not worth the hassle. I found it uncomfortable: the prongs pricked my pinky and middle finger and the ring was very tall even though it was the lowest setting I could find and it ate away at my ering and I really don’t like the look of a spacer (the spacer had to be a very specific size as a 1-1.3mm band wouldn’t just do it. The ering would simply lean over it and got attracted by the shared prong at a different spot). I had it remade by DK.

Anyhow. Here’s a picture of it from before

Agree with @MiaSuperstar.  Full eternity bands with larger diamonds are uncomfortable for me as well, and I also much prefer rings that can be sized.  For that reason, I went with a 7 stone shared prong band (.12 ct each/.84 ctw) with no airline so it is set as low as possible and I usually wear a spacer to protect the prongs of my e-ring.  It gives me full finger coverage without the irritation of prongs between my fingers and is substantial enough to be worn by itself.   Upgrade7StoneSpacer

raw4 :  yeah. That’s what I thought… it was a year full of doubts and annoyance. But the ring was sooooo pretty… 

I recommend buying the ring at a store with a good return policy and then actually trail wear it intensely. You will know pretty quickly if you can deal with that or not. My ring left a significant notch in my ering prongs within 3-4 days after getting married and actually wearing the ring; not just putting it on and staring at it in awe. 

This is my reset btw

Have you considered barset? It can look like shared prong with the scallop dip, but is really comfy! I’ve sent mine off for resizing and I miss it a lot. I wore it 24/7, even sleeping. I think stones between 0.10 and 0.15 work great as a standalone band without coming off too high from the finger. Mine is 0.15, and I personally wouldn’t go any larger.

MiaSuperstar :  Your reset looks wonderful! I think it’s an even better match than before (which was already super).

The rings on this post are soooo pretty ! I have purchased one to use as a wedding band so have only tried it on (a few times hehe). I actually find it to be super comfy as feels almost non existent just like my engagement ring. I think it’s because I got it half a size larger than my ring size. It’s 2 carat total. I can’t wait to wear it !

My eternity band with .06 diamonds and I believe the total weight is just over 1.25?  I think my band is comfortable but like some other people mentioned it has made a little divet into the side of my e-rf which is annoying

Mine was custom made from an Etsy seller, I’m very pleased with it as it’s super comfortable and low. I have included the CAD, hope that helps.
