I love my engagement ring, the only thing is we are having trouble finding a wedding band that fits with it. My ring is a tension setting and the band comes up a little higher than most others. I am being slightly anal retentive about my wedding band, I want it to rise the the same height as the band on my e-ring. I have tried on other bands and I think it gets lost in the shadow of the e-ring (if that makes any sense) if it does not come up to the same height.
The challenge is also that my ring is a bit different in that the center stone is princess, but the diamonds in the band are rounds. I would like a band that has channel set rounds to match which I didn’t think would be too hard to find. Fiance got my ring at Kay’s and they have a band (I think it was $500) that matches perfectly height-wise but the channel stones are princess. They found another setting in a book that was basically the same as the one in the store but they wanted to charge over $1300 for it! I don’t know why they can’t just use the same mold but cut the channel for rounds not princess without more than doubling the price.
Is anyone else having a similar problem?

Your ring sounds very similar to mine. I had a very similar problem. The only that my Fi and I knew we had to do was get a customized wedding band. I’m out in L.A., so I went to the jewelry district. My band will cost under $700

Have you considered making a custom band? I think this might be the only way you can get what you really want.
Is the band you like channel set rounds? If so, there are a TON of channel set round diamond bands on Overstock.com that are usually priced very well. Just a thought. 🙂

I had the same problem – but then we decided to make our rings through the wedding ring workshop (google it!) and my FH was able to custom make my ring to match mine perfectly! If it’s an option for you I would HIGHLY recommend it 🙂 Not only do you get a custom band but your FH makes it and it’s an experience I will never forget! (Wow, I sound like an ad!)

I know someone who had a tension setting e-ring… she started wearing her e-ring on the right hand after she got married. It’s obviously not a solution for everyone (I wouldn’t let Fiance get me an e-ring that couldn’t be worn with a band!) but it might work for some. 🙂

Mine is tension set too and has a high profile. The only band that I liked with it costs around $1500, so we are having it custom made. It’s a good option! I’d try a local reputable jeweler for it too, if that’s an option; we saved a lot because we dealt with the owner of the store.

I had the exact same problem, but because my wedding is in less than a week I had to get matching wedding bands. I’ll figure it out or maybe custom make a ring when I have the money.

I actually found a ring recently that meets my e-ring height wise and (I think) compliments it well without being too matchy-matchy. Thanks for the help bees!

That is very nice! I love the five stone bands. I was planning on getting the same. 🙂
My only concern was how it would look along with a princess cut stone since all I have seen is the round five stone bands. So, I am glad you say you think it compliments it well.

Thanks. I thought so since all the stones in the channel of the e-ring are rounds even though the center is a princess cut.

Has anyone seen a wedding band without more stones (or with very few) that would work? I have a beautiful engagement ring and I am having the hardest time finding a suitable wedding band that’s not going to make my entire finger a blinding light source…the only ones I have liked so far are white gold with texture.
