@cuddlz88:  post a pic of ur e ring, it will help.

 

My wedding band is curved, it didn’t cost more…

 

ETA: I looked it up in your previous posts. i think if you shop around you’ll have no trouble finding a complimentary, curved band for a reasonable price. in my experience there are lots out there.

If you don’t want a curve, don’t get a curve!

If you want a curve get one, even if they custom make it it should not cost more than materials (weight of gold) and labor (here averages about $70 an hour). But we had DH’s mom’s ring remade (totally melted down and recast with a wax mold and everything and it only cost $250… actually that was the quote, he charged us $240 I think.  And this was for hand crafting the mold and hand finishing the ring.

If you don’t feel happy with the jeweler KEEP LOOKING!  We went to about 20, narrowed it down to three, visited them again, then picked our favorite. 

The right jeweler is important! No matter if you’re buying new or having made. Good luck!

I think I have the same issue, mine sticks out a bit on both sides too so it was hard to find something that matched.  Here’s what I ended up with, I’m really happy with it ๐Ÿ™‚

Do you have any other jewelery from which you can recycle the gold?  If so, it may end up less expensive to get the band made.  My fiancée needs a curved band for her ring, which I had custom designed and made, and it’s probably going to cost less becausee she has a locket that we can recycle into the ring.  Going to be about $250 or $300 for the custom band.  I’m getting an ordinary, 10K band, so I’m easy.  Custom, with the gold, would have been close to $1000 for mine, whereas I can buy a 10K gold band online for around $200.

@cuddlz88:  

I have a non curved band and an engagement ring that will rub against it. I have not been told anything about them wearing. I guess it depends on the metal?

One thing i was offered is to very slightly ‘shave’ the side of your engagement ring that would sit against your wedding band so that it sits more flush. You would not notice it while wearing it and only slightly when you take it off.

Keep looking though and do not settle as this is something you will be (hopefully) wearing forever so you need to be totally happy with it x

My e ring and w ring do not sit flush and there has been no issues for me so far. They jeweller is out to make a quick buck!

One thing I will say tho is that I do not sleep or shower in my e ring just wedding band, but I have not had any issues.

I had a girl at my jeweler tell me that too. She told me “oh, you definitely want the matching wedding band” but I definitely didn’t because I didn’t want a curved band. I went to another jeweler and they didn’t say a word about it. Now I have my dream wedding band and I love it

Have you tried a chain jewelry store?  FI bought my ring at Kay’s and I had no problem finding a curved band right out of the case. I opted for a lthicker wedding band than the e-ring band so they don’t match, but they “go” and look very nice together.  I don’t think the curved one was any more expensive than a straight one?
