    I like 1 as well and i would deal with the wedding band later. If you like the gap, GO for it. You’re the one wearing it who cares about others personal opinions?

    Oh I loooove option 1. Gorgeous trellis setting! I doubt you will have much of a gap, unless your center stone is huge. However, I think gap preference is sort of an individual thing and I don’t mind a small one.

    ETA: If you get a diamond wedding band, they won’t rub against each other. That setting looks high enough that the wedding band will sit well below the diamonds in the ering.

    I loooove gaps! I think they are so celebrity-looking. Haha, I wish I had a gap with my set!

    Are you having whiteflash make it? If so, tell them what you want to do with a wedding band and they can help make sure it will work and not damage anything. A three stone can be made to have very minimal gap.

    I hate gaps. I much prefer ring sets that are flush and look like an actual set. That’s just me though.

    My bands gap and I don’t care – I love them each on their own and together.

    I really don’t like gaps, but it really is all about what you like.

    I have a gap. There was no way around it with my e-ring, unless I got a curved band which I did not want. Thought I’d hate, but I love it. Go to a store and try on rings that are similar and try on bands with them and see if the gap annoys you or not

    I’m personally not a fan of gaps but I do wear my ering alone.  I work from home so of the time now I just wear my band by itself in the house and to run errands.  If I’m going out to dinner, meeting up with friends or family, I wear my ering too.  

    But keep in mind you could always have your actual wedding band be a contour band to fit your ering and get a 2nd straigt wedding band to wear alone.

    @showmethebling:  The basket on #2 is gorgeous!  I hate the center prong on #1.  Great rings!

    Yay for three stone rings! I just got mine, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. My wedding band is currently out being sized and redipped, so I can’t show you a pic, PLUS my stones, while the same .5, 1, .5 ratio as yours are princess cuts, which makes them sit flush slightly better. My band has a teeeny gap on the sides, but sits flush with the center stone. I think either option will be fine, and I personally love the gap.

    I like your #1 option better as well! Elegant setting.

    Here’s what I did, I got a ring I loved, then had a contour band made for it. When I don’t want to wear my whole setting, I have SO much fun stacking straight bands, mixing rose and white gold. I love jewelry, so soldering my wedding band to my ring, and just getting other bands to wear alone was a great option for me 😉
