So hi bees….
I’ll post a pic of my engagement ring.
My problem is that I cannot for the life of me, find a wedding ring/band/anything that fits and looks normal with my engagement ring.
Maybe you can help…this is what I am looking for:
Something that doesnt take away from my e-ring.
Something that can be worn on its own and wont need to be soldered to my e-ring.
Something that has minimal gaps.
Goodluck and thanks!
BANDS I HAVE TRIED: (PICTURE THE PLAIN GOLD BAND IN WHITE GOLD OBVIOUSLY)

I really don’t think you need a band with your ring! If you want the option of wearing a wedding band alone sometimes, maybe get one as a right hand ring that you can switch to your left when you don’t want to wear the e-ring.

Have you considered 2 thin pave bands, or plain white gold bands one on each side? I think that would look nice and you could wear them alone if you didn’t want to wear your ering for some reason.

Where did the e-ring come from? Most places have matching bands for those types of rings!

I would choose any band you love and wear the band on the left, and e-ring on the right

Or you could see if a plain pand will fit partially under your ring to minimize the gap.

Beautiful e-ring!!! Other bees have given beautiful options. I’m a huge fan of the gap personnaly so I think yours would look amazing with a straight band of any sort, with intricate designs on it, not a plain band. That way you could wear it alone anytime. Here’s mine for fun 😉

I like how @NikkyS rocks her gap! Your ring doesn’t need a band IMO. BUT if you feel you want a set I can understand because I am the same way. A nice thin pave band would look nice even with a gap. If the gap bothers you have you considered getting a band custom made.. then again it will probably have a curve if you do that and I personally am not a fan of curved bands because I personally do not like the way they look alone.. that’s just me though.
Soooo…. maybe something like a thin plain band would be better? I think you could make a gap look good with that ring

I actually had the same challenge– my ring is a fairly “unique” shape, although not the same shape as the OP’s. We just came from wedding band shopping and the sales lady pretty much confirmed what I had thought— we were going to have to go with a custom wedding band, and were not really likely to find a stock one that would fit just right. Even a flat band with a spacer didn’t look quite right.
The good news is, it was a LOT less expensive to get the custom band ordered than I had expected. The store had a custom job for someone else, that had never been picked up, and was more or less in the ballpark of what would look fantastic with my e-ring, so we used that as a “visual aid” then the sales lady used AutoCad (designing software that a lot of engineers and architects use) to do the design.
When we walked in, I didn’t even have a vision in mind– it was that hard to visualize what would go well with that ring. Our sales lady hit the nail on the head though.
It took about 25 minutes to get the design finished and they do have to keep my e-ring for the 3-4 weeks it will take to craft the ring (and I feel naked without it) but I can’t imagine anything looking as incredible as this wedding “set” will look when it’s done.
Like I said, it really was a lot cheaper than I had expected it to be, and only about 15% more than most of the stock rings I’d been looking at, so it may be worth going to a proper jeweler and having a chat. I would avoid the shopping mall type big name jewelers as they generally do not have their own goldsmiths. Look among the boutique places, especially the ones that have been around for a long time. They are more likely to have the right craftsmen/women on staff. Pick one with a good selection so there’s a greater chance you’ll have a visual aid, and don’t be afraid to let them know you’ve got no idea what you’re looking for. They see rings all day long, and a good salesperson will be able to give you at least a couple of options without even trying too hard.
