My ring is an unusual shape and I’m having to get a band made. It’s been kind of a hassle but I also know that no one will ever have the same wedding band since it’s custom, so that’s nice 🙂 I would talk to some jewelers in your area to discuss a potential custom band. 

I was convinced to have one made because my jeweler told me that a band that doesn’t fit correctly next to the ring will rub the metal and potentially damage it.

I hear you. I have an “oddly” shaped ring myself. Your ring is gorgeous, by the way! Have you considered a ring wrap? There was just a post about it here. http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/my-ring-wrap

It’s something that I’m considering, and perhaps it could work for you.

are you set on getting a wedding band? honestly, and this could just be me BUT your ring is so beautiful on its own it doesnt need anything else! Im not getting a wedding band as i feel it takes away from the beauty of my original ring

my ring is fairly similar to yours and i have a regular eternity band.  it obviously sits spaced out on my finger but i love the way it looks.  also, i really wasnt interested in any of the oddly shaped bands that curve around…i wanted a band that i can wear alone if i chose (even though i cant imagine ever taking off my e-ring).  i say do whatever YOU want!  there are no rules about rings 😉

My ring is a bezel set circular stone, so I sorta have the same issue. I love the idea of a ring wrap if it is in your budget!!! It would work perfectly with your ring.

I think you can get a custom ring that will just wrap around the bottom half of your e-ring. That is quite common actually!

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:

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.
