jn1122:  my band is just as thin as yours- mine is platinum and 1.5mm and i have a matching wedding band. I have worn them together for over a year now and they both look as good as the day I got them. Many people have thin bands and wear multiple rings. If youre really that concerned with the rubbing you can get a thin plain spacer band, or have the ering and wedding band soldered together so they dont spin and rub up against eachother.

I got the matching micropave band…no issues here! I wasn’t told of any, either (we go to a family jeweler).

jn1122:  we are ring twins! I got a matching band to go with my ring, and my jeweler didn’t mention anything about wearing them together. The width of each is 1.5mm.

You could always wear a thin spacer band in between. Or go with a low set bezel diamond band for a mismatched look and to help avoid rubbing. There are plenty of options out there that won’t tear up your pave shank.

jn1122:  im in the same boat as you! 

I was just at two jewelry store today and didn’t find anything. I found some options, but it was hard because I felt like everything took away from the simple beauty of it. Thanks for starting this thread!

dimefinger:  does your diamond sit high so that it allows the wedding band to fit under the prong? When I tried on the matching band for my ring, there was a gap. I would love for it to sit like yours does. It’s beautiful. I’m getting a little frustrated all the “matching” bands have an awkward gap

jn1122:  I’m not much help since I’m not married yet (sorry!), but commenting to follow and say we are fraternal ring twins 🙂 also a six-prong RB with a thin micropave shank.

This is my ring, the shank is very thin.

I didn’t like the matching pave band so I ended up with this, it’s a platinum band with round stones inlaid. It’s the perfect combo, IMO. Still sparkles, but is classic and doesn’t compete with my ering.

Totally following – I have a similar situation, but have BIG plans for my wedding bands!  Yes, bands!

I’m not taking any chances so I’ll be wearing a spacer with mine to prevent my rings from “eating” eachother.  My bands are also platinum 1.5mm…

5brooke5: IMO, my center diamond doesn’t sit very high – the band that the prongs are on are low/thin compared to other styles I’ve seen. I just took some side shots of my ring to show you the prongs (sorry about the bad quality). My w-band does fit perfectly underneath the prongs, which look like they are squared off or slightly tapered upwards on the bottoms (if that makes sense) to accomodate my band.

jn1122:  I wear a wedding band with mine and so far (over a year) no problem with the micropave. My band is platinum with a twist pattern. Me e-ring is delicate and I take it off for sports and a lot of other things so it was important to me to get a wedding band without stones. Plain to me means I can leave it on at all times without worrying about damaging it.

I have a micropave e ring and a diamond eternity band I wear a 1.5mm spacer between them to protect my ering.
