- Wedding: October 2014
So I received a cushion cut engagement ring but it sits really close to my finger. We have started looking for bands to go with it and there is nothing that will fit it exactly with my ring, they either have too big of a gap or just look awful. I work in a hospital lab and wear gloves and would really prefer to just wear my band alone and not my engagement ring because its big and would possibly rip my gloves. We have three options for wedding bands. I really need opinions!
1. Pay $$$ for custom fitted wedding band to go around my engagment ring. We also don’t really have the money for that. I would only be able to wear this custom contoured band with my e-ring so this is pretty much out of the question.
2. Get a straight across band that I can wear alone, but wont look right with my e-ring because it doesn’t fit snug up against it.
3. Get a fancy, shaped band that I can wear alone but also with my e-ring. It wont look 100% with my e-ring but I think it would look better than a straight one with a huge gap.
1st pic: This is my engagement ring with the prettier band that I LOVE. Plus it looks great alone, just not sure how i like it with e-ring. I’d only really wear both for my wedding day and special occasions.
2nd: Band alone
3rd: Engagement ring alone
Any opinions are welcome!! I really just dont know what to do!
