I’ve been looking at bands online and want to try them on but haven’t seen anything like them at the stores I’ve been to. I have tried on a round channel set band with my ring and I like it (see below, it’s on my pinky because the band was tiny), but I’d like to try the other options to compare. I am going to get my engagement ring band made thinner (it’s 3.5mm now, probably going down to 2mm) so the gap will be a little bigger but the band is a little too chunky right now. Down the road I may get a notch made in my engagement ring but for now there will just be a gap.
1. Which band would look best? Whichever one I get will be about 2mm wide.
2. Where can I try on bands like the bottom two pictures? Would any stores have these in stock?

I prefer the thinner band.
Also, where are you seeing these online?
Often, if you see a band on a store’s website, but they don’t actually have it in the store, you can ask them to order one in for you (free of charge! yay!) to try on before you actually commit to buying it. 🙂
So if there are any particular stores in your area that you like, I’d check out their websites and see if you see anything close to what you’re looking for.

Yeah, either way I will get a thin band, I should have mentioned that! I will probably get 2mm to match my e-ring band. I’ve really only seen them on photographers’ websites and it doesn’t say where they got their jewelry. I haven’t found anything like those on jewelery store websites. I know I can have it custom made by the guy who made my e-ring, but I want to try them on first to be sure I like it.

I tried on one like the first one. Not sure how wide it is but my ering is 2mm. I tried it on at a local jeweler’s store (Indiana).
Personally I prefer the second one you posted since it isn’t as wide but I haven’t seen one in person.
