Is there really no such thing as a band for my ring?

Maybe instead of one band, do 2 thin bands one either side or even right below it – or a slightly wider band below it.  Provided on both you don’t mind a gap (I love a gap but I know not everyone does!).

I imagine it’s finding the right width to go with it, or an enhancer sort of curved band – gorgeous ring by the way!  Maybe too consider a colored gemstone band.  Sometimes too it is just hard to imagine any band working until you get used to seeing them together!

I am sure you could have something custom made as well.  Brilliance.com could probably do it.

I would do a straight eternity band with that one. NB: I kind of like a small gap!

Get one custom made from an Etsy shop.  I recommend Serenade Diamonds.

lizzypoo96:  I have a somewhat similiar twisted band. I looked into the custom route for a spilt second, but I didn’t go with it in the end because I wouldn’t be able to wear the band by itself. This is what I ultimately went with, have you tried a band like this?

If I were you, I’d find a local jeweler and work with them to custom design you a band.<br /><br />I had both my engagement ring & wedding ring custom made to match (After I was married, I replaced my setting at my husband’s insistence.. long story!) and it was cheaper than buying a pre-made setting & band off the rack, so to speak. I was able to frankenstien rings that I would never in my wildest dreams be able to afford and combine the aspects I liked from each one to make the new ring of my dreams.

<br />ETA: It only took four weeks from the day I handed them my design papers until the ring was complete, diamond and all, on my finger. It was very speedy. If you lived in Southern Oklahoma, I’d refer you to them!

I love your ring the way it is and if that were my ring, I would probably get a stand alone wedding band and wear it on my right hand.

Lovely ring! I have a split shank simon g and I have two slim eternity bands on either side. I think something like that would look nice with yours too.

CanadianBride456:  That is a gorgeous combination! Love the rose gold too 😉 

I own a twist shank ring, which I have paired with a straight rose gold band for fun. It’s a gift from my mom 🙂

I definitely think you can find a band to work. Even if you can’t having a band made by a reputable jeweler isn’t too expensive. I have a twisted shank halo and I had my wedding bands custom made to fit flush.

lizzypoo96:  I love your ring, its similar to mine (I have the same twisted pave shank.)  I ended up going custom.  We talked about making a space to fit and close any gaps, but really it was going to be blah and kind of ugly.  And I’d still need a second band if I wanted to wear a single wedding band without my e ring.  

So I’m getting 2 bands made.  I have a double halo, the outer is tiny pave diamonds that match my shank’s diamonds in size.  The inner halo is made of much larger diamonds.  So he worked out a diamond size slightly larger than the inner halo (if we picked the same size neither would really stand out.)  It will compliment the halo, but it won’t overpower my centre stone.  And because I have one on top and one below the gaps will match.  When I tried it all on with some sample rings he had I loved the look.  And he was awesome to work with.  Our rings will be ready in September, I can’t wait to see it all together! 

I’m sure if you went the custom route a jeweller could make something you love.
