I don’t think you’re going to find a band out there that’s not going to cover the sides of your e-ring, at least a little bit, especially a diamond band.

I don’t have a photo but my diamond band is very similar to yours and it sits flush next to the e-ring.  It does cover up the little side detailing I have, but I’d rather have that then the gap.

@mylittleviolett:  It could be the one you saw sat up higher… in order for this not to happen you need to find a diamond band that is lower profile. I know they exist because I’ve tried one on before. It takes patience though. I had this problem with my 3 stone because it had windows and design on the sides. I found a low profile plain band and a low profile diamond band I once tried on a Helzberg fit best without covering up the sides too much.

I like that my band doesn’t cover up the windows in my cathedral setting. I’m not sure if my ring is higher set than yours, but I do know it is on the high side (which I wanted). My band isn’t particularly low profile (at least I don’t think it is), but it’s the exact same height as the bottom “band” part of my e-ring. That makes it even then the cathedral part is above both rings. Sorry, I know that isn’t the most logical/technical way of explaining it, but I couldn’t think of a better way to put it. Here’s a picture for reference:

My e-ring is cathedral mounted with long, tapered baguettes.  My wedding band is a low-sitting, half-eternity band:

@MsPoodles:  Your set is spectacular!!

@mylittleviolett:  I really hope that one works better for you. I think you’ve been keeping this one because you couldn’t change it but don’t think you’re happy with it… It’s very obvious every time you try it on.

@mylittleviolett:  Thank you! Your rings are beautiful, too!

I can see my entire center stone as well as the windows below it, and I can see both of the baguettes as well as a portion of the baguette windows. I can’t imagine any type of wedding band that would actually allow me to see the entire window area under the baguettes, as it would have to be razor thin. So, no, that doesn’t bother me at all.

Mine has a really cool side view that’s cathedral-style as well…don’t have a picture of it handy…but my wedding band is just a little thinner (top to bottom-wise) than my e-ring band, so you can still see all of the profile. That allows the side view to still be seen. Also, I wear my wedding band on the outside of my ring (the e-ring is closest to my palm, and the wedding band on the outside), so my view of the profile is unobscured.

@mylittleviolett:  They really aren’t going to be able to see the side view unless they sit down and try to look at your finger from a specific angle…it’s not as if many people stare down your finger from the front. It’s you that looks at it 😉
