So I’m having a solitaire made and used the Truegem ‘Rachel’ as sample. I prefer the original setting look and that means it will not sit flush with a regular wedding band.
Any bees here have a similar situation? What band did you use or are you alright with that space?
I was thinking of using a simple cuff ring to just fill that space so the ring sits flush and stack the band below it.
Does anyone here have the Truegem ‘Rachel’ Solitaire? Is there anyone who could provide me width of curved parts at the bottom of your ring?
Pictures will help with what i meant about the space between the Engagement Ring and the Band.

My rings don’t sit flush and the gap does not bother me. I would just recommend that you be mindful, the stones from my bands (I stack) were rubbing against the prongs of my ering and I had to get spacers.. that set is beautiful btw!

My ering has a very slight curve and a surprise stone that prevents straight bands from sitting flush. I do mind the gap so I went with a custom made contour band that can be also worn on its own.

Ignore my dry hands, ugh winter. I got a band made to go around my setting. I got them attached, but chevron rings seem to be in these days so it could probably be worn alone too 🙂
Also, I didn’t know they existed at the time, but I love the bow tie style rings, something like that might work for you, or a small open infinity shape (examples below)

The way my oval solitaire e-ring is, I didn’t like the look of a curved band. I also didn’t like having a space between my band and e-ring. My jeweler suggested getting a band with a space cut where it needs to sit, so that it is flush. I’m getting my rings soldered after the wedding. I like how you can still see the design in the e-ring this way. (Sorry not the best pictures & ring is really dirty lol).

I’m getting a custom made band with a slight curve in it. I thought I always hated curved bands, but with the custom design, I was able to get one I love! It’s going to literally be a very slight curve with shared prongs half eternity band style (think a slight curved Tiffany embrace!)

I have a wonky shaped ring, so I knew I wasn’t going to find one without a gap. I did try a bendy one, but unless I soldered them together, they wouldn’t connect completely and they’d spin, which would drive me nuts.
I decided to pick the ruby ring and the gap doesn’t bother me at all!
You have a beautiful set, by the way!

Kristin June : That was what i was thinking of as well! A cuff ring. But i’ll have to make mine simple and have it like a spacer ring so i can wear the band we’ve already choosen to sit flush with the whole ring..
Do you mind i ask what is the measurement of the space/gap between the cuff ring?

Thanks for the pics mrsbluetomato : mrsnnn3 : queenbatgirl :! Really helped alot!
I’ll go take a look at those chervon or curve rings. Might be able to find one that can work with my ring.

miumui : I am not sure if you would want to commit to something like this, I had it done when I had a marquise solitaire, but I had a notch cut out of one of the prongs so that a band could sit flush. I know the shape and gold of a marquise setting is much different than your gorgeous basket, but perhaps it could be done? Again not sure if you even want to do something like that, but I just could not find a curved band that I liked to go with my marquise and since it was a slender 1.5 carat, it was super hard.
mrsbluetomato : OMGOSH I love your ring! We need to catch up! I love it. What did you do with the spacer? I love your set. The diamond band you have, did you have it made or did you find it behind the counter? How is your gorgeous beauty holding up? Every time I see it I die. I love the complete set you have. Are you happy with it?

miumui : The space is about 5-5.5 mm on the cuff ring!

I’m seriously learning toward an open ring and have quite a few favorited on Etsy.
Due to the gap beteeen my ering and band, I’m looking for one with a 10mm gap and 1-2mm wide.
It’s an extra expense though, so it’ll wait until after the wedding.
Here’s my ering with a couple of cheap rings I was trying out the look of a stack with for my ering(the sapphire)
It’s too much bling with the Cz band and I’d prefer the spacer band only be in the gap.
Some Etsy options:
Art deck and too bling for me, but you may like it
I like the simplicity, but still use of the sapphire in this one
And here are a couple of gold ones I might actually pick. They arent expensive, under $100. Yes they look similar, but one has a hammered finish and the other doesn’t.

- Wedding: August 2017 - Orange County, CA
My e-ring is rose-cut and sits right up against my finger, so I have a large gap, unless my wedding band is curved. I’ve tried so many options!
Here is my current fave band:
And here is an open cuff band: (on top of the e-ring). This was pretty but the open ends were constantly getting caught on my hair/clothes :
