Yup, it’s called “rocking the gap” 🙂

There is a Bee who has a set very similar to yours.   But she stacks it with a rose gold band along with her wedding band. I rock the gap too…

I have a tiny little gap between mine. The matching band is slightly curved. Its also was like $800 more than the straight one I bought. I like it because I can wear it alone (and I often do!).

For me, a very anal person, a gap would bother me. I’ve never seen one in person but heaps on here and I actually think yours looks beautiful like that. It really depends on the ring and if you don’t find it uncomfortable, I think you’ve made a nice choice 🙂

I bought my band to go along with my original engagement ring. We ended up getting me a different engagement ring and at that point I loved the band so much I didn’t want to get a new one so ill just wear it the way it is!

My band tapers so I have a gap. I didn’t want a curved band because I wanted the option of wearing it alone if I wanted. Also, I like gaps because then it looks like you are wearing two rings. Often a matching band with no gap looks like one ring with a larger band/shank. 

This will be my set:

96daysleft:  I really prefer your set, with the gap, than a curved band! Yours looks very classic, and I like how you can differentiate between your wedding band and engagement rings easily. A lot of curved bands just make the engagement ring look bulky.

If you’re still unsure and are considering a curved band, do look up Scintillante’s custom curved wedding band. Her set is one of my absolute favourites on the Bee, and she has the only curved band I’ve seen that looks timeless and elegant with her halo.

Gap girl here too – I think it allows both rings to stand out rather than blending into a look of one …

I actually prefer the gap. I like how you can tell that there are 2 separate rings. I wish that I wouldn’t have chosen a band that sits flush with my ering. It’s not a set though, I just happened to choose one that lined up well. I try to separate them all the time & they always verge together sometime.  It’s just a personal preference…and doesn’t look tacky at all.

96daysleft:  Mine was originally going to sit flush; I was adamant that was the look I wanted.

Then I started having second thoughts, and at the last minute, had the ring re-cast (it was a custom design). I now have a slight gap, though the band is still curved. It arrived today and I couldn’t be happier; I love that it looks like 2 separate rings:

Mine has a pretty big gap and I love it. I love that you can clearly see the 2 different rings.

I’m undecided on this issue. I feel like curving your wedding band to “fit” the e-ring is a little strange, but that’s because to me the wedding band is more important than the e-ring (Don’t get me wrong, I love my diamond, but it’s not the same.)

However, anal me doesn’t like gaps, unless they are symmetrical, eg I LOVE linnylou_88:  ‘s set but it would drive me crazy to have a big gap.

But to each their own and if you like the look of it, go for it! A straight band is also much more flexible if you want to wear it alone.
