i think a pave wedding band would look beautiful with your solitaire.

I am personally looking at a solitare with a diamond wedding band. I think it looks elegant and timeless. Good luck!

Beautiful ring, congratulations!

I’d go for a plain wedding band as it’s so comfortable, classic and indestructable. You can then add a pave diamond eternity at a later date. 

I was planning to get a diamond wedding band but when I tried on a plain band it just felt “right”. I may add a diamond eternity but actually I’m less sold on it now than I was.

I have both. I prefer the plain band and only wear the sparklie one on special occasions:

Mine is a plain band with only a few tiny diamonds set into the band.

as much as i love blinging up pretty much anything, I feel like you center stone is so eye-catching that adding sparkle underneath it would almost distract from its sparkle.  I don’t have a solitaire, but I love the idea shown by sexymama118  that you can have a gorgeous set with just a plain band to really show off that center stone, and then dress it up with a bit of bling for special occasions when you feel like it.

sexymama118:  Beautiful! Why do you like the plain band over the diamond band? I am just trying to figure out what I would prefer as well.

I went plain, I am all about low maintenance. eternity bands are also a little too fancy for me. I am a plaid shirt doc martens kind of lady.

I went with a 5-stone shared prong wedding band. Personally I am not a fan of eternity or pave bands. I would like this band just as well if there were 7 or 9 smaller diamonds.

Sorry for the massive pic. here is my set ๐Ÿ™‚ love the fact that plain looks chic and understated, is low maintenance (never take it off) and sets off a solitaire really well.

I love my diamond band. My solitaire is little (0.25ct) so I love the added bling!
