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!!

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.
