I’ve always admired cathedral settings – I think they look very elegant and (for lack of a better word, no pun intended!) architectural. So I’m looking at getting MoCo’s eng854. However, when I look at the wedding set with the matching wedding band, I’m wondering if it looks a little weird with the raised cathedral ering setting, and the regular, flat/un-raised wedding band.
If I were to get, say, the eng147 set, both rings would be at the same height with just the main stone standing out.
Does anyone wear a cathedral-set ering with an un-raised wedding band? Will you please share?

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!

@mintblush: Very helpful opinion, thank you!
@letigre: That’s true – I hadn’t thought of perspective. I feel much more sure about this set now. 🙂
@BlondeMissMolly: That’s an awesome mismatched set! I can see why you like it. 🙂
@MunsterCat: OMG, the first one with the plain band and eternity ring is so classic and beautiful!

@Pisces: I think mine qualifies as a high cathedral setting. It sits well above the wband
