    Can you just get a thin plain band to wear between your ering and matching wedding band?

    @bkm0826:  Are you set on the matching band?  What about a plain band like I have?  Blingy e-ring + plain w-band…

    @IzzyBear:  I think that is what she was referring to as a “guard ring”.. She said that’s not her first choice

    @bkm0826:  Get a spacer!

    ETA: You can get a 1mm one on etsy for not a lot of money and it’s really hard to see. You can google June Designs on pricescope to see some examples.

    I’d have them soldered and buy a single band to wear to work!

    A very small spacer ring would be virtually invisible between the ER an WB. I don’t know what your jeweler showed you, but a 1 mm band is usually enough to keep the diamonds from touching and is almost imperceptible while wearing it.

    @bkm0826:  I would’ve suggested the thin band inbetween, but since FI doesn’t like that… And I would probably not “risk it” as I think you will be so hurt when one of them chips. Since you want to match I would suggest picking out a whole new setting with a matching band.

    It’s too bad the way the matching set was made causes dammage to the rings. Although truthfully, any two rings that rub everyday over a long time will end up dammaging each other. It’s simple solid against solid use. 

    My suggestion since you love the matching set but cannot wear the e-ring at work is to consider this: solder the matching set together and find another awesome wedding band to wear alone. It’s exactly what I did and I love it! Love that my two rings are soldered so they don’t shift, make noise or dammage each other. I wouldn’t have it any other way 🙂 This gave me the chance to purchase two rose gold bands that I stack together when I want something low profile. It satisfies my love for platinum AND rose gold, hehe. 

    Here are my rings:

    I’d get a 1mm spacer ring – you’ll barely see it!
