    purplemonster:  I would go custom. Your ring is beautiful and deserves to be the centre of attention. It will be made to look it’s best with a custom ring ๐Ÿ™‚ 

    (But I’m biased, I went custom to have a gap under my cluster so my ring fit flush.)

    Absolutely agree with PP.  I also have a vintage cluster and have a gap so that my ring fits flush (which is also nice so that I can just wear the band when I don’t want to wear my e-ring). 

    Your ring is lovely.

    purplemonster: I think if you’re not going custom, one of those marquise eternity bands would look awesome with it. This one is from GNJ Jewels on etsy:

    I would also check out Market Square Jewelers on etsy. I found a beautiful vintage band to go with my emerald cut e ring. It is perfect! They have the most beautiful collection of vintage stuff I’ve ever seen, and it is really reasonably priced. Here’s the band I’m waiting on from them. They’re sizing it for me. They even do lay away.

    Gosh I love your ERING!!!!! I totally get how hard it is to match vintage erings and bands. For me only a custom band seemed to “work” so I ordered one to match my ering minus the center stone. But for yours, which is a much different look, I think a milgrain platinum band would compliment that, such as

    BUT you just have to go try stuff on. You can’t guess online without seeing it on your finger. Do you have an antique mall or specialty antique shop near you?

    It can be tough to match rings like that as they weren’t really designed back then to wear with another ring…they were worn on their own, or on separate hands, etc.

    I prefer my rings to have a gap and be more distinct. I would hunt around on etsy and on various vintage sites to find a carved platinum band.  But, they can be pricier, especially if looking at platinum and it can be harder to find specific sizes (unless you are okay disrupting the pattern). Here are some ideas though from etsy:

    Platinum, size 6, under $500 USD:

    You can also look at a reproduction. Here is one in platinum with small diamonds for under $850 USD on etsy:

    This one is just over $400:

    Your ring is absolutely beautiful! If I were you, I’d probably go custom and get a delicate engraved band made to nestle close to your engagement ring.

    RayKay:  Haha, I did a triple take when I read that that was less than $85! It is a beautiful band.

    Also, check out Orospot on etsy. Reasonable prices and a few different options including curved options and might work with you as well to make something that fit with your ring:

    HappyCatLady:  Yeah I hadn’t seen anything like it before. I saw it and knew it would be perfect. It should ship this week. Will post pics with them together. 

    OP: good luck, yeah etsy is really the way to go. Nothing you can’t find, and what you can’t find, someone will make it for you.
