I really want this setting http://www.eternitybyyoni.com/engagement-rings/diamond-engagement-ring/Madison-Round-Halo-Ring-529.htm#, but it has a donut underneath the diamond so it wont sit flush with a wedding band. Is that okay? Please share pictures of your e-ring and band that doesn’t sit flush. Thanks!!

Mine has the same donut and whilst it does cause bands to sit slightly off from it, I think I’m ok with it so voted no here. Im a long way off buying a wedding band yet but have tried a few friends on and it doesn’t make that much difference. Worth it if you love the setting!!!

mine has a little donut so there’s a gap, but honestly it’s not really noticable. At a quick glance they look fitted. It doesn’t bug me, but im not OCD about things being matchy/perfect.

I custom designed both of my rings (ering has a donut) so that they would sit flush because I knew it would drive me crazy if it didn’t. So I think it just depends on your personality .. I’m very type A and I knew that kind of thing would bother me so it was worth it to me to make sure they were flush.
I don’t think it looks *bad* or anything if they don’t sit flush on other people though.
If you go to a locally owned store, you’d probably be surprised how cheap it is to get a custom band if that’s what you want. My rings were 33% cheaper going through a local custom place rather than getting it through a “name brand.”

I am not a fan of the gap.
The ring in your picture could be easily customized by a good jeweler. All they would have to do is raise the basket up a little bit. Or they could just make one completely custom. Very do-able.
If you decide to go custom, it’s very important to do your homework and research the jeweler thoroughly. You want someone who has been in business for a long time and has credentials such as being a GIA graduate/gemologist. There are a lot of Tom, Dick and Harry types of jewelry shops where you’ll be promised all sorts of things that they don’t know how to deliver. Do be careful.

Can I please ask where you found your wedding band and how wide it is? I am looking at similar bands, but it’s hard to find real pics vs stock photos. Yours is beautiful!

+1 I get called ocd quite a lot, it took us a while to choose my ER because I wanted a certain look but also to ensure that it would be wedding (sit flush with the wedding ring), but as love bug says, it’s totally down to your personality. I have a friend who has a large marquise cut ER that is set low and her wedding ring sits no where near the actual Band of her ER!

thank you! Mine is the Tiffany & Co Etoile band, platinum, 4mm (domed band).
Alternatively, Whiteflash makes a lovely Etoile-inspired band called “scattered diamond band” I believe in 3-5mms with your pick of metals.

Also, OP another thing about “the gap” is… if you get a custom band, consider if you’ll ever want to wear your band alone and how that will look. Another reason I went for the straight.

I have a similar situation with my ring set, but the gap is very subtle. Now that I wear the set regularly, it looks fine to me.

I actually prefer a gap. I like that you can see 2 distinct rngs.

Mine sits flush, and I feel like I’m starting to prefer the gap 🙂

I got this cz band, to test out if I would like this shape of band. It’s kind of raised and square, which I love. I tried it, and at first I was like, no way, that is way to much gap. But I have worn it around for a few days, and I kind of like how it looks. I would suggest trying some different cz styles to see what you like. And a lot of times, you don’t like what you think you like, when you actually see it.

My engagement ring is such a strange shape and wouldn’t sit flush with anything! So lucky ol me got another engagement ring bought for me today with a flush wedding band!
