So, my fiance bought me the most beautiful princess cut e-ring…but when purchasing it didnt think about what kind of wedding band would fit with it. I have been told that the ring has “a large head” meaning that no wedding band will sit flush against my ring. Everything i have tried with it has left a huge gap and i just dont like the way it looks. I know I can not be the only person who has a ring like this. Has anyone else out there been in the sale situation? Did you find something that worked or will i need to get something custom made? If anyone has any pictures that would be greatly appreciaited! I will try to get some pics of my ring loaded up here soon so you can get a better idea of what I am talking about

I’m in a similar situation. I also have a princess cut diamond, and it’s large, so a wedding band can’t sit flush to it. The jeweler told us that we can either get a custom made band with a curve/cut out in it for the diamond or I can have the diamond reset into a basket setting, in which the prongs curve out and make a space for a band to fit underneath (that’s probly a bad description of it…).
When I first tried on the ring with a wedding band, there was also a very large gap. However, I also think that’s because the wedding band was a couple of sizes too big. When I later tried on a band that fit my finger better, the gap was much smaller. I don’t really want to get the ring reset, since I’m sentimental and want to keep it the way it was when my FI gave it to me, but maybe that’s an option for you? Or, if you don’t want to do the custom band, you can always wear them on different hands (e-ring on right hand, band on left)?

I’m going to have a gap on my ring since pear cut diamonds pretty much demand one unless I get something that sits high up, but it doesn’t bother me. You can get curved or angled bands that fit flush against larger headed rings, you just have to look around.

Thanks girls. hilsy85 I am too sentimental so I do not want to to have my ring reset. I have tried tons of curved bands but done of them fit right, i have also tried wraps but i dont like the look of it and it hides all of my side diamonds. I did find one ring that was “ok” it had a cut out on the top that was just white gold and would sit under the diamond normally. they said they could cut that portion out for me and then it would give the illusion that it was going under my diamond but really just be an open gap. So far I guess this is the best option, I just wont be able to ever just wear my band alone with out the e-ring. Hilsy85, let me know how you make out and what you decide to do..maybe the open top will work for you as well. I tried to find a pic online, but cant find one. I will keep looking

That’s the situation I’m in, and we found a ring that has a bit of a curve to it to accomodate the setting of my e-ring. I also hated the idea of a huge cut out or curve to my wedding band (as I do plan to wear just the band from time to time). Shop around, you’ll be surprised what you can find!
My engagement ring is the “vintage marquis” while my wedding band is the “vintage victory” – the band is narrower between the diamonds so that my engagement rings fits right in.

Personally, I don’t mind “the gap” – in fact I kind of like it. But, if you hate it, you’re probably going to have to get a band custom made. I had mine custom made. I love it! And it really wasn’t more expensive than buying it out of the jeweler’s case. I think this might be your best option.

I totally feel your pain! I have the same dilemma. My ring is an oval, and I’m having trouble finding something that doesn’t overwhelm the stone. My FI and I are meeting with our jeweler on Saturday to get our wedding bands made. I’ll let you know what he suggests!

We had my wedding band custom made…really not more expensive (at least for us), and this way, we’ll know that it will fit just the way we want it to.

I think you just have to try try try on different rings. I hated the first 10 rings I tried on. Then I tried one on and it just *worked*! It still wasn’t quite right so we’re still looking, but I am hopeful that we’ll find the perfect ring.
