    I think with thin, delicate bands like yours, it’s very easy and aesthetically pleasing to rock the gap. A curved band might add too much bulk and kind of take over the set.

    I’m a big fan of sporting the gap! It would work well with your e-ring and if you’re ever in a situation when you just need/want to wear the band, it won’t look like something is missing (I realize this is my personal preference, but that was one of the things I thought about.)

    I’m always a fan of straight bands, gap and all. I think your gap would be very small and make your rings look more cohesive with a straight wedding ring.

    I have a huge gap and I honestly love it.  I think it started when I was a kid – my mom had a friend who had a very important NY career that I always looked up to.  She was really sophisticated and stylish and sported a huge diamond solitaire with a couple of different bands – all of which gapped.  For some reason that look stuck with me.  Even though that is not at all what my wedding set is like, I always look at the gap and think of her (and pretend to be super sophisticated and stylish).  :o)

    Also – and the more practical reason – I really like having a straight band so that I can wear it on its own.  There are often times that I do not want to wear my e-ring, especially while traveling abroad, and it is nice to just have my wedding band.  I know that I could just wear a plain silver band for travel, but I don’t like to take my wedding band off.

    My rings have a gap inbetween, but it doesn’t bother me at all. Also, from far away you can’t even really see the gap anyhow.

    your style of ring is only going to leave a tiny gap. 

    I personally don’t like curved bands anyway. I say, rock the gap!

    Your ring would look awesome with a gap!!! Here are two cz solitaires I own worn with straight bands. I love gaps!!! My diamond set has a huge gap and I love how it looks vintage and also distinguishes the band from the e-ring.

    I’d rather have a gap, because I’d like to be able to wear just my band sometimes, and I think most curved bands would look odd by themselves.

    I definitely want to have a curved band (2 actually) around my low set halo. I don’t like the gap, and am going to get my rings soldered so I wouldn’t be able to separate them anyways. I am going to have a simpler single band that I can wear if I don’t want to wear my wedding set
