I’ve yet to find a wedding ring that I love the way it looks with my e-ring! The e-ring has a sunken basket, so in order for it to lay flush the jeweler said they can reconfigure one side of the basket to fit the wedding band, but I’m not sure I want to do that. I could pick a totally different wedding band, but I want it to go well with my e-ring, and I don’t think my engagement ring was part of a set.
I guess this is more of a waaaaah post than one looking for advice, but I’m so frustrated! I just want something to match! Did anyone else not find what they were looking for? What did you do?

I could not find a wedding band pre-made to match my engagement ring. DH had my e-ring custom made though, so we went back to the same jeweler to make my wedding band (don’t ask me why he didn’t have it made as a set…). It was only $800 and I couldn’t be happier with it! The only photo I have is a crappy cell phone pic, sorry. No pro photos yet 🙁

I might have to go the custom route if I can’t find anything! We have an appointment with the jeweler where we got my e-ring tomorrow, but we’ve gone to look at wedding rings there twice already and nothing has been quite right. I’m just afraid of how expensive it would be to go custom? But I guess if yours was affordable maybe they’re not all ridiculously expensive!
I found one that I think might be good on Blue Nile, but I’m hesitant to do that too! It all depends if I want them to restructure the e-ring so the wedding band will fit flush. BLARGH.

I have the same problem! I’m thinking of changing the setting or getting a whole new setting instead… I think I’m set on just a plain band though since nothing else really goes with it.

@Miss BBQ: I had budgeted $1200 for a custom band in my head, so when the jeweler said $800 I was ecstatic! I mean really, they’re teeny tiny diamonds and they don’t have to be amazing quality since they’re not the centrepiece or anything, they just have to be sparkly. You can cut corners to make it work. The $800 included paying $150 to have a custom wax mold made of my e-ring and then a wax casting of the band to make sure it fit properly. I met with the jeweler to see how it fit together and give my approval. I’m really happy with how it turned out!

When I originally got my e-ring (square ring in the middle), I did not have a band that would match it at all. So, I ended up soldering 2 plain bands so my ring looked symmetrical and wider. Just to give you an idea…the other two bands on either side are anniversary rings.
