Here is my engagement ring with eternity band – I love this look! (Please excuse my sweatpants – and the size of the pic – sorry!)

@shaunna: I’m not sure if you’re having the same problem that I was running into, but I found that all wedding rings had too high of a profile. they overwhelmed my .5 ct e-ring when viewed from the side. why do they have to make all the bands so tall? it’s like the trend is to make the diamonds be raised up higher than they actually are, and I wanted them to sit as low as possible.

I looked at about a million diamond bands, moissy bands, and white sapphire. I was open to any of them as long as one looked right. this moissy band was literally the lowest profile band I could find! (I posted a photo in the thread above) if you like the band I have, it’s the “low profile eternity band” from moissaniteco.com. it’s 2mm wide, and just under 2mm high.

as for cut, I actually like how princess cut solitaires look next to a band that has round stones, but it’s definitely up to you and your preference.

@shaunna – thanks! It is about as far from what I originally thought I wanted as possible! I thought I wanted slpit shank, pave, halo, etc. but the more options I tried on the more I loved the plain solitaire. I think (hope) the eternity band gives it some extra sparkle without taking away from the solitaire.

@shaunna: it is 2.5

We purchased it from a family member, so we got a great deal on it – plus it comes with a special history 🙂

Hi there!

I just got engaged and had the same issue. I’m not married yet but we did find my wedding band recently. I have a 1.2 cushion cut with a knife edge band. The wedding band is a half carat 1/2 eternity band with princess and baguette diamonds. Hopefully it gives you another idea/perspective.

I don’t feel like my band takes the attention away from my solitaire at all. I think they complement each other! 🙂 I love the look of a solitaire with a diamond band!

But if it still seems to busy for you & a plain band isn’t enough you could always look at scattered diamond bands like this one:

@houstonlawbride:  What are the specs of your wedding band and engagement ring?  Carats, width, etc?  I LOVE that look and I want to do something like this!
