So a year and a half ago my fiancé presented me with the most beautiful ring I’ve ever seen. Cut to wedding ring shopping – I thought I only had two options, a huge gap between my rip rings or a curved band. I wasn’t crazy about either and had my heart set on an eternity band. I approached my jeweler with a crazy plan to take out the basket on one side and he said “no problem”. I was nervous but I lovvvve the way it turned out and it looks so perfect with the wedding ring of my dreams. I’M SO HAPPY! I can’t wait to wear it forever – but more importanly marry the best guy in world.

Can you post a view up close from the side? I’m having a hard time picturing no basket, but it does look great together!

He basically flattened out the basket in one side:

That looks beautiful together! I love how your wedding band is thicker/different than your Engagement Ring band- it really makes it stand out and says “married.”

Great idea! Good to know that is an option. I have a basket and a slight gap, but I actually like the gap, so it works for me.

Super cool. I looked up my ring on the Zales website and noticed another lady had done like you! A part of the basket was removed to allow for a flush look.
I personally love a gap so I’m having a custom contour band made that will allow a gap, sort of like this set:

@JLbee: looks great ! Can you share the carat weight of that eternity band or better yet the point size of the stones? Thanks!
