You MIGHT be able to get notches cut out, but if you want it to curve around your ring, you might have to go custom.

I think your best bet would be to purchase that ring as is, and have a jeweller cut a notch out and solder it to your ering (so it always lines up and it doesn’t spin around)… it would certainly be less expensive than re-creating the same ring with a contour.

You might not like this option, but I’m just throwing it out there: you could get that wedding band and wear it on your left hand, and switch your e-ring to your right hand.

You could ask a custom ring maker if they could alter that ring to make it work. Schubach is making my ring. They are making it from nothing and providing the gold and side stones plus all the work for just $1250-$1575 (depending on the design I settle on). That is a lot of bang for my buck. For something like this that is so simle i.e. no set stones etc I imagine it’d be quite cheap. It’s worth it t ask. Ask a bunch of custom jewelry makers. You could also ask artisans on etsy.com and artfire.com if they could make you a ring like that that fits into your ring.

I just wanted to say that I <3 your ring.

The colour is amazing! (Were you going for TARDIS blue? ๐Ÿ˜› )

Love your blue stone ๐Ÿ™‚ the band you picked out looks amazing. Would definitely be a perfect fit with your vintage setting. I personnaly absolutely love a gap between the e-ring and band. I find it adds to the vintage look and gives emphasis to both rings (the band is not nodged underneath the center-stone of the e-ring) But some people prefer a tight fit between the rings. Go see a jeweler you trust and ask for their advice. I like what MissNoodles suggested about cuting a part of the band and soldering the rings. I have my rings soldered and it’s the best decision I could have made! They are always lined up perfectly and the band doesn’t rub against my e-ring. 

Here’s my set:

I’d go talk w/ a jeweler like some PPs mentioned. They may be able to notch out the band you found, or take a wax cast of your (gorgeous!) ring and make one to fit. That’s the route we went, because I also didn’t want something blingy. I believe it was under $400 to get my simple band made, and I would never have known if I didn’t pop in and talk to a few jewelers (not chain, but local jewelers w/ a goldsmith or two). They can then design a band that fits your stone but also incorporates design elements that you like (like swirls, curves, etc).
