MissPhish:  hmmmm….That’s tough.  I soldered mine with a gap since I didn’t want to have them cut into my ring underneath.  Here’s a pic:

(Before I had my stone set lower btw)

MissPhish:  I guess I don’t completely understand. Gorgeous set by the way! LOVE. So the solitaire is kind of “in the way” of the wedding band? And that would cause a gap if you didn’t do something special to one of the rings? I personally wouldn’t want to mess with the engagement ring one bit. No dinking around with the prongs. So what if the wedding band is curved a bit? Or like you said, a space is created in it? I prefer that to messing with the e-ring.

Interesting idea…I would personally prefer a beautifully contoured band that would hug the center basket and come flush with your e-ring band. I love curved sets. And you could solder a contour band too, as I did 😉 

When considering similar ideas for my ring, I found someone had cut the basket of the exact same ring as me and fit in a straight band. I can show you:

Altered set found online (I think there are stones on top of the staight band….):

No.  No.  100 times, NO.  Either wear it with a gap or get a contoured band (each either soldered or not).  I would NOT cut into my ring — YUCK!
