You could have one custom made to fit your ring exactly and you could solder them if it wouldn’t disturb any side design on your e-ring. I wouldn’t wear the chevron by itself just because it might not look like a wedding band on its own, but I’m not a fan of the wedding band on its own as it is. Chevrons can really vary by size and how pointy they are, so maybe order some cheap ones to try for fit.

I don’t know what your engagement ring looks like but I was facing the same problem – straight bands didn’t sit flush to my ring and I also never thought I would want a curved band (they always seemed to be missing a partner when worn alone)  but if your ring is not super curvy, I suggest looking into the Cartier Ballerine line wedding bands — they have a platinum and a diamond bead set channel band options (the latter not on line). Similarly, Tiffanys has a style called from e peretti that also has a subtle curve (so much so that it’s barely noticeable that it’s curved when worn alone!) 

 

tldr– Cartier and Tiffany has curve rings (not chevron) that look straight on first glance but may fit perfectly with your ring!

Comfy and yes sometimes I do wear it by itself.

A good friend has a V shaped band that used to be her mother’s wedding band, yellow gold with baguette diamonds. She’s wearing it as a RHR for now but plans to use it as her wedding band when she marries. She thinks it’s perfectly comfortable, no complaints, and it looks good on its own as well as with the Erings she’s tried on.

If interested, see if it is possible for them to change your engagement ring. I had the support on one side cut out from my engagement ring to fit a regular band so I could wear my wedding band by itself. This won’t work with all rings (if your ring is too thin, I don’t think it’d recommended)

Oooh, me!  Ha ha.

I love my chevron band, and I don’t mind wearing it by itself! (or stacked with my sterling Berricle “trial run” ring!).   My basket sits flush against my finger and nothing else felt right.   Got the band on Amazon and was pleasantly surprised!

I just finally picked out my final band and it is a V shape! I love a curved band in a stack look! here’s my ring!

A band will sit flush with my ring, but I preferred the look of a curved band. I don’t wear it by itself ( I had them soldered so that  it wouldn’t spin), but it is quite comfortable. Good luck finding one that you love!

Mine is v shaped as my ering sits flat on my finger so I needed a wedding band that would fit around it! Yes it’s comfy and sometimes I do wear it by itself, but I usually just wear both.
