I absolutely love my engagment ring, but everyone keeps asking me what I will do for a wedding band. I think I will have two custom bands made (one of each side) does anyone have any ideas for a design? the ring sitts really low on my finger so there really wouldn’t be room to have something go underneath.

That’s really tough! Maybe something that has diamonds on each side…how do I explain it…like…
diamond diamond diamond blank space (with a thin metal to go underneath) blank space blank space diamond diamond diamond.
Does that make sense???

I love your ring, it’s amazing!
get any style band you want to wear alone on your left hand, and wear your e-ring on your right hand (or swap sometimes for fun, why not? some people just wear their e-ring as their wedding ring. so you could have two rings that you change up sometimes.)
OR: get a plain band that is so low profile, it fits under the center part of your ring. maybe two plain bands to wear on either side, for symmetry. (EDIT: I really think that would look so pretty, and you already have so many diamonds there, it doesn’t seem like there needs to be any more)
a diamond band won’t fit under your ring – I searched high and low for a low profile gemstone band myself, and the absolute lowest was still about 2mm. most are taller than that.
to be honest, I think a band that curves around it will look weird with your style ring because it would have to form a long “U” around it. it would look off and you wouldn’t want to wear that band alone.

@macbookbee123: Thanks so much for your feedback. Yes I get what you are saying. I have been looking for an image to get better idea but it’s so difficult to find anything like it. Thanks again! Happy Holidays!

@janie-janie: I completely agree that a “U” around would look rediculous. I’m redisent to wear the ring on another hand because people think it is costume jewelry as is. Thank you so much for your comments 🙂 Happy Holidays!

Are you open to having any subtle work done to the ering? Something almost along the lines of having it resized (larger) and tweaked a little so that there was some room between your finger and the bulk of the ering so that a thin band could be slipped under on either side? Perhaps two thin bands w miligrain or ribbed detail would look nice while not detracting from the ring – seems like you could get away just fine without adding more stones?
Or… this is really hard to describe on a computer with out drawing it out, but w picture a wedding band wrap that was two U’s rather than two O’s so it’s open at the top, and instead of connecting at the bottom the two U shapes could connect at the top over the shank of your ering. Would almost be like a puzzle ring to get everything to fit right (I think you’d have to slide in the ering sideways to make it fit and stay put) but it seems like something like that could work…
ETA: another idea might be to contact someone like Fay Cullen – they might have some good ideas since they seem to be more familiar w rings of that style.
