looking for a narrow band to go w/ Ritani Bella Vita 3 stone

I'm having a difficult time finding a band to go with my Ritani Bella Vita three stone ring. The band is quite narrow at about 1.2 mm. My first goal was to get Ritani's eternity band that matches or to find a less expensive micro pave band that is the same width. I haven't been able to find any bands in stores that thin! Plus, online stores rarely mention how many mm wide their bands are (I know Eternity Diamonds has an eternity band that's as thin as their Zora ring, which is a copy of the Bella Vita ring). I don't necessarily want my wedding band to be so matchy matchy but all the rings I've tried on look terrible with my thin band. Nothing even compliments my ring.

I cant really do the stacking multiple rings thing because I have short, chunky fingers and I don't have a lot of finger real estate, as some of you put it :loopy: I am very happy my fiance and I found the Bella Vita because since it's dainty, I feel like my fingers don't seem quite as chunky. I also would like a wedding band that fits pretty flush with my e-ring. I'm not sure why I don't like gaps between rings, but it's probably because I'd fidget around with them more.

So, I was thinking about a band similar to one of the ones Kate Beckinsale wears. I love that it's different and very small. I've read that different people say that the stones are baguettes, French cut or emerald cut. I have no idea which cut hers in particular are. I've found similar ones on Single Stone and ID. A Single Stone rep said their bands are approx 2mm. I haven't seen a ring like this in stores. What do you think of wearing one band like hers with my Bella Vita? Any ideas on where to get rings like this besides Single Stone or ID?? Do you have any suggestions for other bands that would look good with my e-ring?

My e-ring looks like ChemGeek's Bella Vita (her pics are much better than Ritani's or mine): [URL='https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/engaged-my-ritani-bella-vita.120533/']https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/engaged-my-ritani-bella-vita.120533/[/URL]

Kate's Beckinsale's band: (the one farthest from her e-ring): [URL='https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/kate-beckinsale-stacking-bands.82577/#post-80051#p80051']https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/kate-beckinsale-stacking-bands.82577/#post-80051#p80051[/URL]

I am only willing to help if you post photos of your ring first :Up_to_something:

I guess I can put up with your demands since you're willing to help ;)) These are old pictures of my ring from when two of the micro paves had fallen out of the halo (in case you're wondering what the mysterious black dots are). You're still better off viewing ChemGeek's photos. I feel like my photos don't do the ring justice at all.

Your ring is stunning. I love the ring central suggested- although I'm pretty sure it's around 2mm ish.

I have the exact same Ritani setting as you and it's beautiful. I wasn't able to find a band that matched well anywhere though because the width is quite narrow and the height is high, around 2.2 mm. I ended up having a band custom made by e-weddingbands. I went with a plain platinum band and it looked great. I also had a matching diamond band custom made later on as well. Good luck with your search, but custom may also be the way for you to go.
