@TroubadourTango:  What you may need to do is go the custom route to get a band that sits entirely flush.  My e-ring isn’t any one “brand” as it was custom made and then the bands made at a later date – by the same jeweller.  My e-ring is a lot like the ballerine, but has floral themed shoulders.  It also required a curved band and I was adament on having it sit perfectly flush with my e-ring.  

Here are the results of going custom

Mine are totally different. They don’t match, but I like how they look together. Shop around and try on different things until you find something you love.

@TroubadourTango:  thank you!  It is a sleeve actually.  The jeweller created two idental curved wedding bands, and then attached them at the base.  The e-ring slips between the two and is held in place without having to solder anything.  

Here is a photo of the sleeve itself

Here is a side detail shot that you can see underneath where the rings are separate

My engagement ring has pave stones and my wedding band has prong set. I love them together.

I had the same problem!

My ring is a verragio so the detailing underneath means it sits a lot deeper than most. My jeweller created a plain band but instead of a perfect circle it is slightly oval shaped to be the same width when viewed from above!

Love your rings 🙂

TroubadourTango:  my bands are both different than my ering. My sapphire and diamond band is from Jared’s and the diamond band was my great grandmothers 🙂

Mine will be different. My ering is a Sholdt, and my wedding band is from Blue Nile. Sholdt makes a matching band that sits perfectly flush and is oval shaped to be thicker on top. Its beautiful, but it also cost a pretty penny. I didn’t mind a small gap and saved $1000 in the meantime!

Ugh whenever I look at this pic, it reminds me of how I need to make an appt to have my ering polished before the wedding – the platinum has an obvious patina compared to the wedding band.

My E ring is Tacori, but I honestly didn’t care for the coordinating wedding bands- at least not to the point of justifying the cost when they were nothing special.  So I got 2 no-name bands for either side which together were cheaper than one Tacori band.

I did not like the bands that matched my ring as well (They curved).  I had a Victorian style ring by Gabriel and Co.’s Amavida line, similar to Blushbliss above.  I DID get a band through Gabriel and Co., but was a completely different style than all the others that matched my eband and was from their “contemporary” line.  Vintage vs. Modern… So I inquired about engraving the sides of the contemporary band so that it would go together better.  For a whopping $30 extrea to engrave, the rings are perfect! No gap! And look like they were made to match. I could not had been happier.  Think out of the box with customizing something to get what you want, since you’ll be wearing it for the next 80 years! 🙂

Mine are different brands, too. As far as I know, there isn’t a matching band for my ring. For now, I paired it with a thin half eternity band from Zales (because it was on sale and looked great with my ring). My ring is from a different jewelry store, and I plan on going back to them so they can help me design a custom band that will fit perfectly with my ring. My setting has a different sort of shape, so I think custom is really the only way to go. For now, though, I’m extremely happy with how it looks. There is a teeny tiny gap — not enough to bother me — and I feel like the wedding band really plays up the center stone and setting of my ring.

EDIT: A picture! (how could i forget? lol)

I have the same wedding band as hazeleyedbeauty, lol. Both of my rings are from Jared’s but I’m fairly certain they’re not the same brand. The band that went with my e-ring was okay, and it matched, but I didn’t love it, and I didn’t feel comfortable asking my hubs to spend money on something I didn’t love. Yaknow? So we tried on a whole bunch from all over the store until I found this one. 🙂
