    Do you not have a jeweler in the area to create an eternity band that will fit against the e-ring? My tacori e-ring has a specific band to go w/ it so there is no gap. I will always wear the two together so the wedding ring will never look weird… I think I’ll get a cheap plain band to wear when I don’t want to damage my wedding set.

    I love # 1 ! But I’m biased 😉

    I’m obviously going to be biased for that gorgeous marquise halo!

    If you get a halo custom designed, you can avoid having a gap between the engagement ring and your band.  I have a halo ring with no gap.  We started the basket prongs 2mm above the base of the ring, so that a 2mm deep wedding band could fit snug under it.  You could alternatively omit basket prongs.  The custom design in 14K white gold only cost $1300, which was less than I found for non-custom.

    Undershot of raised basket:

    The band goes underneath snug as a bug:

    I’m not a fan of the halo, but I like the raised setting that allows the band to sit flush in chicagobride’s ring.

    My stone is 4.23mm deep.  Unless your stone is really, really deep or really huge you should be fine.  My stone is set high, but despite every degree of clumsiness, I really don’t hit it on much.

    If you get the marquise halo you must post it.  I have never seen one before.

    I really like chicagobride’s suggestion, but if you can’t get that done then I vote for Option 2 since the entire point is to eliminate the gap. Judging from these options, though, you’re going to have a beautiful set no matter which choice you make!

    Mine is similar to Chicagobride’s and I really love how it looks & that it allows a band to sit flush. It also doesn’t look like a super high setting when it’s on my finger, which I like a lot.
