Im having the same problem!  I have an oval three stone ring with a halo and I’m going crazy just thinking about trying to find a band that goes with it!  My ring was custom made so in the end I think we’re going to have to go that route again but I love the look of miss matched stacks too!!

@krenee24:  Here are a few more pics of it… please excuse the crappy lighting of my office. The whole thing sparkles like crazy 🙂  Like I said, I wish I had at least a rendering of my band. One of the things we specifically requested when designing my e-ring was that it had to sit up high enough for a band to fit underneath. There’s still a few little gaps, but to be honest, most bands we looked at for inspiration fit pretty snugly, no curve needed!

Here’s mine. Mine sits flush against the engagement ring. Although I like the look of the gap sometimes, so I find myself pushing them apart occaisonally.

Hey there! I am all for a halo with a split shank!!!

My center stone is a 1.6ct OEC diamond; the e-ring itself has a little less than 1ct of micro pave diamond melee, and my wedding band is 1ct pave without the mill grain.  I designed the e-ring to match my original wedding band; and though my e-ring has mill grain to add a bit of vintage inspiration, I kept the bezel high polish to give it  a modern edge, as well.  My rings are a size 6.75 althoug they fit very loosely on my finger…I like to spin them around Laughing 

Both my e-ring and my wedding band are platinum with F/VS diamonds.  My “buffer” band is a 1.5mm 18K rose gold rope.  I generally wear them stacked together, although they will not set flush up against one another, the gallery prevents that.  I actually prefer a gap, though.

By the way…it took me a lllooooonnng time to get this setting finished for my center stone…lots of going back and forth in my mind.  Finally, when I came up with this design, I knew it was “the one”…my “forever setting”

Sorry that my pix are so gargantuan…I resize them, & they still post huge Surprised

Here’s my beauty! I couldn’t find a wedding band that goes with mine, so I am looking into custom! But, my wedding day is August 10th, so I won’t have anything by then. Boo. Here’s my e-ring :

Sure, I’ll show off my ring! Top picture with the wedding band, a little off color, and also before we changed the stone from cz to moissanite. Bottom picture without the band and with the moissanite stone.

@krenee24:  yah, you’ll more than likely want to go with a contour band…but I don’t think two is necessary.  2 bands in your already substantial ring may be so much that you wouldn’t want to wear your wedding band at all much of the time; especially when hot & humid, or during those puffy” times of the month.

I have a rose gold rope “buffer” band in between my platinum wedding set that doesn’t match at all; &, I think it may look really awesome to do your band, or set, in a complimentary yet different style, or perhaps just a different melee size (I think smaller would look gorgeous & it wouldn’t add a lot of bulk).  Weddingbound’s enhancer looks fabulous with her e-ring; however, I think many times enhancers actually do just the opposite, rather than enhance, they distract.  

So….if you’re going to do two bands, or an enhancer, consider which styles would emphasize your center stone & your e-ring instead of competing with it.  You have a lovely e-ring…make it the centerpiece 🙂

@krenee24:  also; could you post some pix of the profile & side views of your ring; it may be helpful in getting more ideas generated regarding a band, enhancer, or bands :)????  Can’t wait to see them :)!

I think your ring would stand beautifully on it’s own! I have a halo ring, and I chose not to have a wedding band with it because it felt overwhelming on my hand and it would have had to be custom.

I had my band custom made to fit around mine – the main issue was the prongs holding my center stone swoop very low so I can’t sneak a band under my E ring.

I have a multiple shank e-ring, but I had the same dilemma.  I opted to go with a mismatched wedding band.

Just got my ering the other day.  We are already married and I only had my wedding band.  My dh suprised me with this ering and I dont think I could have found anything more perfect to match my wedding band. Love looking at all the different style beautiful rings.
