I have a gorgeous e-ring that, b/c of its design, can’t have a wedding band sit "flush" up against it (diamond setting in the way). I really don’t want a "notched" band to fit next to it (b/c band will look weird by itself if I don’t happen to wear e-ring) or "curved" band b/c don’t really like that style. If I get a regular band, is there a risk that it will scratch my e-ring or get scratched b/c it doesn’t sit flush by it? Any suggestions? Thanks! PS I plan to get a platinum band with hand engraving (to look vintage) to coordinate w/my e-ring, which is an art deco reproduction.

Why dont you gte one custom made to ensure it would actually fit flush?

I think you may have to get a custom one. In my case, they’re going to "grind-down" the band before soldering so that they’re flush. So that they don’t rub each other and scratch each other, you’ll probably have to get them soldered.

Is there hand engraving on the sides of your e-ring? Do you plan to get a w-band with engraving on all three sides (top, 2 sides)?
If the answer is yes to side engraving, they may scratch each other. Especially with platinum, since it is a softer metal. If there’s side engraving on your e-ring, even a plain w-band may scratch your ring. This is all regardless of it sitting flush or not.
If the sides of your e-ring aren’t engraved, then I think IA_Snowflake’s idea is the best one: get a custom band (with top engraving) and solder them together. This way the rings won’t spin and potentially scratch.

I would ask a jeweler, but any ‘scratching’ i would think would be minor and easily buffed out if necessary. I have the same issue as you – unless I have a notched band, the setting in my engagement ring doesn’t allow for the wedding ring to sit flush. I just decided I didn’t care – and when i tried on bands – i found something that I loved. Good luck!

This is my e-ring (different diamond but same setting):
I really didn’t want diamonds in my wedding band (both to save $ and b/c thought they might detract from e-ring) but Renaissance Platinum (company that made e-ring setting) seems to only make diamond ones…

Mine doesn’t sit flush -and the matching band for my Engagement Ring will only sit "flush" if I buy the full eternity band… which didn’t make sense to me since I only got a halfway around eternity band for my e-ring. Anyways, I just found a band that has a similar design and is a little thin – and it actually works out better than the matching band.

Have you thought about just wearing your engagement ring on your right hand after you get the wedding band? Some people do it. Personally, it wasn’t for me. With that setting, if you want the ring to be flush, definitely get it custom made. If you want a wedding band to wear without the engagement ring, they make affordable, plain white gold bands you could invest in (so two wedding bands). I you plan on wearing your Engagement Ring almost all of the time, definitely invest in custom made. Some aren’t too expensive.
