My FI went ahead and bought my wedding band soon after he got my engagment ring …WEEEEELLLLLL I decided I wanted a straight band instead of getting a custom band to fit flush to my e-ring
i showed my sister and she will not shut up about how it looks like it “doesnt go together” and “i should just reset my ring so it sits flush!”
if she didnt live 2,000 miles away i would shake her and scream “THIS IS NOT YOUR RING, YOU DONT HAVE TO LOVE IT”
she tries to tell me shes just “concerned” other people will think it looks funny with the gap.
anyone else rocking the gap having this issue? really annoying.
this is my band with my e-ring and honestly i think my band DOES go because its the matching style does it not?

A lot of people do the gap. I wouldn’t worry about it. Do you like it?

WOW. she really does need to lay off. I have a gap just like yours and I have never heard anything but positive comments. Is she married? Maybe it’s just a way of trying to give you a dig. Ah, sisters!

@MsW-to-MrsM: i love it. and ive told her i love it and she just cant seem to drop it for some unknown reason.

Mine do not sit flush either and I don’t care much. I think yours looks just fine!

For my taste, that gap is too large, but if you like it, just tell her so and if she keeps yammering on about it, tell her “yeah, I got the message, you would choose a band that sits flush. Now can we drop it?”

I think it’s pretty. It matches really well. My set has a gap. It’s not that big, but they look like two different rings. I like it that way – they are two different rings. And sometimes I just wear my wedding ring when I don’t want to knock my diamond on everything.

I like it, especially because you can wear the band on its own and not have it be an odd shape. You can always tell her something like, “I can see how you might think that and strangers can think whatever they like but I adore it!” It’s your ring, not hers!

I have a rectangular radiant cut that used to be low-profile like yours. I didn’t want a curved band either, because it didn’t feel like a wedding ring to me…so I opted to change my e-ring setting to fit slightly higher. The gap wasn’t a huge deal for me originally, but it eventually was all i was thinking about when looking at it.
With that said, I like your set together it’s gorgeous! I would consider raising the setting so it can sit flush, but this is my personal opinion!
^^ after: and he decided to upgrade prior to our wedding along with the lift.
your set is gorgeous though, i love it!

You should have told her that. I would have, at least. I think it’s the honest and appropriate thing to say.

The gap doesn’t bother me. Both rings as a set looks gorgeous!!
I think people who hasn’t looked at many rings would find the gap odd; just be glad you have better tastes than your sister!

@MrsTVLover: shes married. i have no idea what her issue is. shes always been in constant competition with me which is weird because we are nothing alike haha siiiiigh shes so sensitive though im concerned about hurting her feelings by being too blunt

@Laurenskii: ROCK THE GAP, GIRL! Your e-ring is to die for and I love the band… I think I just read on another post that your sister was acting a little jealous of the size of your ring so maybe that has something to do with it- just speculating 🙂

I was wondering if maybe she is jealous of both of your rings. Maybe you got the rings she wanted? And instead of being nice about it, it’s easier for her to focus on your ring gap?

I have to agree with @joya_aspera: the gap is to big for my taste, but all that matters you like it. I have a gap also…
