ispeakingifs :  I love this look too!  It’s one of the reasons I went with a plain solitaire for my 10 year upgrade vs. the ornate pave and micro-pave setting I had with my original e-ring.  Such a classic look and so versatile!

I think the key is finding the right balance between the size of the solitaire diamond vs. the size of the diamonds on the band.  I first tried a 5 stone, 1 ctw (.20 ct each) band and while it definitely made a statement, I felt it was too much for everyday wear and slightly overpowered my solitaire (see first pic).  I tried on lots of other combinations of 7-9 stone bands with .10 ct diamond – .15 ct diamonds.  As much as I love the look of a full eternity band, I don’t like the feeling of the diamonds between my fingers and I wanted my band to be resizable.  I found that a 7 stone with .12 ct diamonds (.84 ctw/approx. 3.1-3.2 mm) provided the finger coverage I needed and the look I was going for (substantial enough to wear alone, but not too big as to overpower my solitaire when worn together). 

 Love seeing everyone’s sets on this thread!

I’m usually pretty good at taking clear ring shots, but I think that all these sparkles are difficult to capture ๐Ÿ˜Ž
