To be honest, I have no idea what the answer to your question is. But I just had to pop in and say that wedding band is awesome!

That’s GORGEOUS! Is it custom?

I’m not an expert, but I would worry about damage in both direction, i.e. the diamonds in the band could also scratch the engagement ring. I think some people have their rings soldered togethere so they don’t move, but it would be a shame to hide your gorgeous ring under the e-ring, so I would use a spacer.

Oh wow, yeah, this isn’t what you want to hear, but I think the wedding band is definitely going to get damaged and scratched up by the diamonds on your basket.  Turquoise is 5-6 in hardness, quite soft.  Platinum is even softer at about 3.5, but with no time, the diamonds in my wedding band had carved out a little notch in the basket of my e-ring.  I would def add a spacer.

That set is beautiful!!!!

I have heard that even diamond pave bands can damage wedding bands from the constant rubbing, and you should always get them soldered together. Or a spacer could work great if you want to leave a little more breathing room between the two. I’ve seen some really tiny ones that would be lower profile than the wedding band.

Definitely get a spacer. Check out ZinaFineJewelry on Etsy. I got a 1mm diamond eternity from there and it’s held up great going on 4 years of wear.

So, you have damange potential on multiple planes.

1) Wedding band. The culet of the diamonds will cut anything they contact. So, that ring needs a spacer that floats BELOW the diamond culets. So it must be thin enough off the hand to no touch the cultet and wide enough along the diamonds to get beyond the culets.

2) Ering. The angle is hard to resolve. But, if the diamonds at the bottom of the gallery U are proud of the metal — then they will eat anything they contact. If you put a straight solid band against that ring, does the metal touch the diamonds in the gallery? If so, that ring along would need a spacer to avoid eating your wedding band.

You are looking for something like this (not mine). Sew how band is lower than the culet on the wedding band?

SO BEAUTIFUL! But yes, since diamond is the hardest substance, and turquoise is a very soft stone, I’d get a little spacer, otherwise that poor guy is going to get torn up. I LOVE that ring.

I think everyone has covered what I was going to say but I still wanted to say how beautiful your rings are! I am not a fan of halos but love emerald cuts and emerald cuts with a halo and I REALLY love turquoise. Beautiful!
