I’m still trying to decide if I should buy my wedding ring or have it custom made, but when I talked to the jewerler, he said there will always be a gapm so customization might not be worth it. What’s your exoerience? (pls add pics if you have any!)

you can have your center stone raised up higher so a band fits underneath. the jeweler could add 1-2 mm of extra metal inside the ring, and then resize it (because otherwise that extra metal would make it too tight). it would cost WAY less than having a custom wedding band made.

There is a little bit of a gap with my rings. Luckily when I switch it around, turn the ring on the other side, the gap doesn’t seem to be so noticeable. I worried about this for quite a bit, but really I do not think it is a big deal.
I would just keep trying on rings till you find THE ONE. I did, and I can’t wait to wear it 😀

No, I don’t have a gap. I ended up getting a ring wrap or AKA solitare enhancer as my wedding band.

What a coincidence, I was just thinking of resurrecting the “rocking the gap” thread! I had my band custom made to coordinate, but not match my ring exactly. I dont like contoured bands b/c I want to be able to wear my band alone, and also the sides of my ering are covered in diamonds, and I didn’t want to block them. The gap allows you to see between the rings, so all that bling isn’t wasted.

My e-ring is a marquise solitaire so I just got a plain white gold band that was very low not raised up at all so they would be flush together. But I REALLY wanted a band with diamonds. I was going to get a chevron ring that had a V shape to it so the marquise diamond would set inside the V shape–But I tried on a channel set band with diamonds & even with the gap I loved the two together! So I rock the gap now. Its not a huge gap, but its still a gap. 😛 If you love it & it wont bother you with a gap then GO FOR IT! Whatever makes you happy–Don’t worry about what anyone else will think. PLUS if it saves you money to buy something already made, double plus!!!!!!!
I don’t have any good hand pictures but here is two that I have handy:

No gap here! My rings are part of a set and they fit perfectly around each other, snug but not tight. They don’t slip unless I wet my hands or something.

I have a small gap as well! It seemed pretty large at first but after wearing the rings together even for over a month I don’t even notice it 🙂 and most I’ve talked to can’t even tell. I love it!
Oh, and excuse my chubby fingers. It was a warm day!

Yep. I actually like a gap, and the matchy matchy style isn’t my thing personally. Although it does look nice both ways.
Here’s what my set looks like, not wearing them together yet, but soon!!

Love boths of your sets ladies–They’re gorgeous!
& @shushu1208: I remember your set inspiring me to want a diamond band to start with!

I personally love the way mismatched rings with a gap look- it really allows both rings to stand on thier own.

I don’t have a gap, but I ended up getting a custom band made. My setting sort of “juts out” from either side of the band, and I couldn’t even find a plain square band I liked, so we went the custom route. The price was not bad at all.

None with mine. The band went with the e-ring, so it has a notch you only see when it’s off.
