Does your band match your engagement ring? I’ve seen bands that can be ordered to match the engagement ring, with a little groove cut into it to make the band fit snugly underneath the ring (lined up with the stone). I’m wondering if I should get that. Or is it ok to have a little gap between the e-ring and band?

I have an oval e-ring with a halo. Unless I get a band specially made to fit to it, they won’t sit flush. I think having the gap is totally fine and that’s what I plan on doing as well. As long as you’re comfortable with how it looks, it’s not a bid deal at all!

Yes, my FI purchased them together so they would match/line up perfectly. Its very thin thou so I am thinking of getting a thicker band like really think for days i dont want to wear my ering and matching band. Like for hiking, gardening, etc.

my band does not fit into my ering. my ering was custom and my eternity band was already made. i like the little gap.
pick the band that you love. that’s what is important.

My bands do not go with my ering and there is a little gap but you cant really notice it

I have a few I am debating on and none of them are the “matching” band. I have a halo ring and I felt that the matching band just made my ring look larger. Also, it was crazy expensive. I don’t have a gap per say because my halo is high, but I do like the look of a gap on the hands of others. Here are some pics of a couple band options I am rotating to give you an idea of how you can mismatch…

@ntlc: ..why have I never seen your set before? I LOVE it! I like it the way your wearing it on the right best, and loovee the mixed metals. Okay i’m done now 🙂

My band does match my e-ring, but it doesn’t have a groove to make it sit exactly flush. I just had them soldered, and I asked for a tiny gap so you could still see the detail on the sides that fit together. I don’t mind the gap at all, and it’s barely even noticeable. Here’s a picture that shows the gap the best (or at least the best I could manage with my crappy camera).

@Kkaattii Thanks! I actually just posted a thread today with the ways I am debating on… I want to make up my mind and solder them together soon… The wg band twists around like hell and it’s only halfway. Maybe you could wander to my post and vote on a way for me LOL.
Anyway, back to your original question, I LOVE mismatched rings. The reason is mainly that no one out there has the exact same set as me! 🙂 However, to the person who just posted her matching rings– BEAUTIFUL!

It will match exactly (same profile, width, etc) once we have it custom-made. We got a quote from the jeweler this past weekend, and it’s going to be about $1,500 less than we expected. YAY!
FI said something about going ahead with it, but I told him that I would rather wait. I can only imagine how often I would sneak it out of the safe (before our wedding) to wear it!!

My band absolutely matches my e-ring! I wish I could post a pic, but it won’t let me, it would be the stock pic anyway, since I am not yet married

Mine actually is a wedding set so the wedding band matches perfectly. FI has the band tucked away, though. I am really drawn towards matching bands/e-rings, but I love the look of “mis-matched” sets too. I think it’s all about finding what you love and rocking it!

@ntlc: Just wanted to say that I absolutely love your bands, and second the other Bee’s comment about liking the set on thr right the most 🙂 they’re gorgeous and yay for mixing metals!

My band doesnt match at all! the diamonds in my band are bigger then the ones on my e-ring. and i have a round halo and my wedding band is in a V shape. its hard to describe, I dont have a pic on this computer. I love my band because my FI picked it out on his own, but i prefer matching bands. And i also have a gap in between them, which i dont care for.
