I have a beautiful engagement ring that is exactly what I wanted. However, I’m not sure what type of band will be best. I’ve heard multiple opinions-to have one made that is “flat” in one spot so the flat part fits under the engagement ring stone/border; have one made that is shaped so it fits around the engagement ring stone/border; a woman also told me that a band on my finger with the engagement ring was a ridiculous idea, that I had to have one for my right hand ring finger…has anyone dealt with this that could offer me advice/photos of good ideas?

I have an odd shap as well, and I personally didnt want a band that had a funny bend in it, i wanted something i could wear alone. I NEVER take my e-ring off, but thats not the point 🙂 I just didnt see the point of my wedding band blending right in with my e-ring – i wnated there to be a difference visually.
one of my good gf’s has a ring almost exactly like yours and she did the same thing i did and chose a pretty band that was just round, no funny bend. we like that it doesnt sit right up against our e-rings.
here is what i did:

Love it ClairDarling-see, that is what I wanted originally! I tried on my future sister-in-law’s eternity band, very similar to that one, and I liked how it looked. Everyone else seemed to think that I was nuts. I’m glad I decided to post on here, because I don’t know a thing about fine jewelry/wedding rings/etc. so when people would say this or that doesn’t work, I was believing it. I’m glad to see that, for the most part, anything goes, it’s what you like that matters! If anyone else has photos or ideas to share, please do! Thank you!

I have same problem. I LOVE my ring yet it can’t be ‘flushed’ to a band. Due to my job, I may not even able to wear my e-ring. So, I’m thinking about getting a simple band from Cartier’s Love collection.

find a band that you love and rock it. My band actually has a ton of engraving along the sides – very art deco. i just wanted an eternity band, but i wanted something more than just the diamonds. we had my band custom made so that it was unique

I second what ClairDarling said, you don’t have to have your wedding band sit flush with your e-ring. I don’t have photos of my e-ring and band yet but I have a square bezel setting and just a normal gold 4mm band. There’s a slight gap but it doesn’t bother me. I’d just go and try on a few styles and see what you like best!

I am in the jewelry business and I think you will be happiest in the long run if you do a very delicate simple eternity band. Any time I’ve ever done a fitted/cut out/welded/curved band (only if the customer insists) they have eventually regretted it.
