Cathedral Erings + Regular Wedding Bands?

Here’s my situation.  Was presented with a beautiful 2.12ct round brilliant diamond solitaire on a traditional narrow band.  Loved it.  Was going to keep it that way and wear a 6mm plain band for my wedding ring.  While considering this at the jewelry store when returning to buy the band, I saw a custom ring they had made that was a cathedral setting and it occurred to me that re-mounting the diamond on a wider band, I could just wear one ring and that is what I chose to do.  Since I’m eloping I’ve been a few months without my engagement ring, but that’s okay because I didn’t want to announce it anyway.  This weekend I get my ring during the ceremony.  Here’s a pic the day the jeweler finished the work, kinda hard to tell it’s a cathedral setting, but it is and I love it. It’s simple and timeless and a lot of platinum too!

Ok, I have to admit that I don’t really know what cathedral setting means.  But anyway my ring is set pretty high so may be it is one? I am including the picture from the side.  My wedding band is flat.  I think it looks nice.  But anyway, here are some pictures:

OP’s set above.

I think the benefits of a catheral e-ring is that your ring can sit relatively flush with your wedding band. The picture above is kind of misleading since I bet if it was angled from directly above, you wouldn’t be able to tell that the e-ring and wedding band aren’t level.

I have a cathedral e-ring with a regular band and I love how it looks. My cathedral is set very low, so I do have a teeny gap between the two but as PP it is so your rings can sit flush. I also love that I can see the cathedral arches still when worn together with my wedding band. It’s a very pretty view!

This is one of my favorite ring combos ever (Frankiextah’s ring from pricescope) and I love the way the cathedral ering looks with the wedding band!

 

@Westitude:  is that a soleste? It looks gorgeous!

My engagement ring is a cathedral setting.  I wasn’t sure at first if I liked that part, but I love the way it looks with my wedding bands.  I get to wear them in 2 days!

@Pisces:  Me! I do! Here are pictures of my e-ring alone and both cathedral e-ring and “flat” wedding band:
