When FI and I were looking at rings, he decided it was very important that my rings fit together snugly. He hates “gaps” and he said it makes the rings look like they don’t belong together. I had never even given this “gap” a thought before. In fact, I thought he was crazy.
However, I’ve noticed a lot of posts on the bee about gaps, whether it be embracing them or hating them. I have 2 eternity bands surrounding my engagement ring, and there are no gaps (in fact, they are soldered together). I like how it looks but I would wear whatever FI picked
Does your ring have “a gap?”

No gap here. I actually liked the look of mismatched rings, but my fiance was sooo adament about the rings actually matching that we returned my e-ring setting to buy the one that matched the wedding band he later picked out. I actually like the new one better so I didn’t fight it!

FI and I agree that the rings should match. So when we do go shopping for wedding bands, we will pick one that goes with my e-ring. I hate the look of mismatched rings.

@jordanhughes: Now that I have seen mismatched rings, I hate the look of them too. I had just never considered it before. I’m not very girly and I don’t wear any jewellery except what he’s given me, lol.
@MissWitty: It was really important to my FI too. I thought it was cute 🙂

No gap here. I can’t stand them for my own finger, but I see pics on here that look lovely.

I guess I am in the minority here. I have a lovely matching set, but prefer to wear just my wedding band with the original little ring I was given for our engagement (not the one from my set). They are mis-matched and have a gap, but I SOOOO love them together.

I chose to only have my engagement ring (which is now my wedding ring) because I really didn’t want a gap. I would have probably had to go the custom route, which I didn’t want to do. Plus, I liked the way my ring looked on its own.

Nope, I’m sending them out to get soldered the day after the wedding. But I’m dreading having to do it so soon, I think I’d miss them dearly if I had to give them up the day after the wedding :'( But that’s what FI wants to do, so whatevs.

Yep because I have pear and my wedding band is curved.

nope, i have no gap although my metals don’t mix very well at all. white gold engagement ring and a platinum forever band. but together it doesn’t look toooooo bad i think because there is zero gap. if it had a gap, it would look 10x more mismatched.

Well, you might just hate mine lol. Not only do I have a gap, but they are completely different styles and different metals.
My e-ring would not allow for a ring to sit flush (because of the basket) and I was completely against a curved band. I wanted to be able to wear my band alone sometimes and I didn’t want it to look like it was just another part of my e-ring. I also loved rose gold but my FI didn’t like it for an e-ring so I compromised and got it for my wedding band. I tried on tons of just plain, pave diamond bands that matched my e-ring band, but none of them really did it for me. I tried on my band and fell in love 🙂

Mine didn’t come as a set – DH picked them out separately but they do sit flush to each other.

Mine will have a gap. I haven’t decided on a wedding band yet but I like the look of the gap better than the curved wedding bands. Doesn’t bother me.

I’ll have a mini gap. I was adament that I wanted a wedding band that wasn’t curved at all, because what if I wanted to wear it alone sometimes? I didn’t want to limit myself at all. So it doesn’t sit 100% flush, but pretty close.
I think FI wants to someday upgrade my center diamond (it’s .5 ish carats right now, which I am totally cool with and like how it looks), and I think that will reduce the gap somewhat. But that won’t be for a looooong time!

@littlemisst08: Same – my wedding set is going to be soldered to where there will be a teeny gap that no one will be even to tell is there unless they look super close.
