I have a 6 prong round brilliant diamond engagement ring with a pave setting. The diamond sits low so it does not sit flush with a wedding band! My fiance and I have started wedding band shopping and I think I am leaning more towards a contoured band.but would love to hear your input or see pictures of your wedding set! Contoured or a gap?
Here is a picture of my ring!

I have a friend with a contoured band! She HATES it. It spins (just like an e-ring), so she finds she sill has a gap!

I went for an in between :p there is still a gap, but is a consistent one instead of a straight band that has less gap around the centre stone and more gap from the ering band.

I have a six-prong solitaire and it was really hard to find a complimentary band. I ended up having these made and am reasonably happy with the result. I often wear the two bands together on one side which also looks nice.

Rock the gap! Then you can wear the band alone if you desire! I have a lower setting as well and will have a small gap. No pictures yet ( I get married on Saturday!)

I love a gap, and I don’t like most contoured bands, so yeah, I vote that you rock the gap.

I have seen some that are sort of notched in right where the solitaire stone or prongs would sit. You could look for something like that… Otherwise I think a contoured band soldered to your ring would be the best idea.

I love the gap! But you totally should go with what speaks to you – I had a tough time deciding too. I liked the option to space my rings a little far apart, or squish them together, or wear them separately. A girlfriend of mine just had her contoured band soldered because it would spin separately from her ring and drive her nuts!

I had to have my wedding band custom made (actually costed less than zales or Kay). I hated the way the gap looked with mine, it rocked back and forth. I’m a fan of closing the gap, haha. BUT there are some rings with gaps on this site (two posted above) that are gorgeous and it really brings attention to both rings as separates! I still have a tiny gap on either side of my center stone, but it keeps it from spinning too much. 🙂

If you ever think you may have the desire to wear just your wedding band alone for convinience, go with one that is straight across.
I personally dislike the look of a contored band. I want both of my rings to be beautiful rings on their own and together.
Go with what you find beautiful though. It’s your set afterall 🙂

@Gabthebee: +1. I have a solitaire and wanted my wedding band to sit flush but knew that I would want to wear it solo sometimes. That being said, I went for a straight band and have learned to love my tiny tiny gap.
