What about a diamond band that the stones are also set high? The band I posted above has very high set diamonds.

genogirl:  congratulations! Your ring is just beautiful! And it’s really nice that it was an heirloom peice. I have my grandmothers diamond, so I know how extra special they are! I think you might need to speak to a jeweller and see what they might be able to reccomend to you. Or go to a few stores and just try on a few and see what you like. Do you like the look of mismatched bands? something in Rose gold would really set of the white metal of your ering!! Good luck

You should definitely go to some jewelry stores to try some on

For me, it was more aesthetically pleasing to have the width of the wedding band match the width of the e-ring band. 1mm is very thin though. Did you try the 2mm? The ratio might not be as harsh compared with the 3mm. I think it’s ok if there’s a bit of a gap. My 2mm wedding band (still engaged, already purchased) does not sit too high, which I think makes it look better with my e-ring.

OP, i have a similar engagement ring to you and I struggled with this exact same issue! Personally, I knew I wanted a plain band rather than one with lots of diamonds as I just wanted it to frame the e-ring rather than compete with it. I ended up designing a thin curved band to fit around the bottom of the pear and we got it handmade at the same place that made the e-ring. Unfortunately, when we went to pick it up and i tried it on with my e-ring, I HATED it!!! I had an actual meltdown about it.

The jeweller agreed to melt it down and turn it into a simple 2mm band and I’m much happier now. I can wear them together if I want to but I’m not sure I really like the look of it so I’ll probably just wear them on separate hands.

Sorry this doesn’t really help! My only recommendation is to visit a few shops and try some different styles on to see what they feel like before making a final decision.

My old rings were set very similarly. Is it important to you to be able to wear your wedding band alone? This is what mine looked like before. It came as a set. 

I don’t have any pictures of it from te side but I think it’s almost identical. It has always bothered me that I couldn’t wear my wedding band alone. I tried on tons of stuff in stores and nothing was set high enough to look right to me. 

Your ring is beautiful!!!

alabamagirl:  That was one of the main things that bothered me…not being able to wear the shaped wedding band on its own. Now I have a normal band, I can do either.

this was my first set. Had a similar issue with my e-ring until i found this band to go with it. A plain band just didn’t look quite right.

Ok well if you want a plain band then I’d go with something that is around the same width of the baguettes in your engagement ring since the shank of your ring doesn’t show from the top. Like between 3-3.5mm in a domed platinum band. The band i posted above belongs to a lady on pricescope and is a 3mm platinum domed band. still you need to go try some on so you know what looks good. Goodluck to you!

I have never tried one on and I know little to nothing about them But a knife edge band would sit up a little higher right? But yes, try on, try on, try on.
