    I have a slightly curved wedding band. There’s the slightest gap between the two rings, but you really can’t tell. I had the option to get a custom made wedding band to my engagement ring exactly, but that would have looked super funky on its own. As it stands, my wedding band is perfectly fine on its own. I don’t wear it alone often, but it’s just my preference to wear both.

    See the curve?

    And on my hand:

     
    ETA: I swear I tried to resize those…

    There doesn’t seem to be much noticeable space between the bands and the ring in your picures, OP. I have a curved band that was ordered at the same time as my engagement ring (custom ring). It was obvious that I would need a custom band so we did it all at the same time. I cannot wear my wedding band alone, but I have another band that belonged to my great grandmother that I can wear if I want to wear just a band. It’s actually the band my husband proposed with. To be honest, there has not yet come a time when I have wanted to wear just the band, but the day may come. Here’s a picture of my ring with the wedding band.

    I have a curved band that I had made to fit my vintage ering. Mine is a MUCH bigger curve than yours though. I can’t wear the band alone, but that doesn’t bother me as I don’t intend too ๐Ÿ™‚ 

    You can barely see the gap between your ering and the band. 

    Here’s my set just for giggles ๐Ÿ™‚

    Mines curved, and it’s soddered (sp?) to the E ring, so I don’t wear them seperately.

    I don’t mind rings that have a gap, but love the matchy-matchy of my set – they came together.

    I have a curved band that fits flush to my engagement ring. I *hate* the gap between rings. That’s just my personal preference though.

    I’m normally not crazy about gaps but I don’t think yours is very noticeable. I ended up getting a curved band but I had the same worries as you about being able to wear it alone. I think it would definitely look weird so I’m going to get a second plain band for when I don’t want to wear my e-ring.

    I wanted a straight band because I like the variety and who knows, maybe one day I will be part of a mud run or something (stranger things have happened). There will be a gap but I don’t mind.

    After going on about how much I don’t want a curved band, the store ordered a custom curved band for me. I was livid because I realized how much I don’t want a curved band. My current curved band looks so silly by itself. We are exchanging it out and getting $500 back because I never needed a custom band in the first place. I am holding the curved ring until I get my straight ring and the $500.

    The curve is just way too noticible for me.

    Anyway, back to the original question – go with your gut. Will you ever not wear your engagement ring with your wedding band? If no, then a curve might be a good idea. If yes, then will you be okay with the curve? I am not okay with my curve.

    I had mine custom made to fit my twisted split shank ering. Love it ๐Ÿ™‚
