Honestly, my ring is very low set and leaves a gap.  I really thought it would bother me but it didn’t take long to realize I really like the gap.  I think it makes it obvious that its two distinctive rings and not just one thick band

If the gap really bothers you that much, then you can have a jeweler custom make you a thin spacer band that has a notched (not curved) groove in it that fits to the small protrusion at the bottom of your e ring so that the wedding band can sit flush.

Mine is low set as well. I absolutely hated the gap, but wanted a band that I would be able to wear as a stand alone, which meant that single bands with a slight curve were out. I ended up going with a guard instead. No regrets here! I’m probably going to purchase an eternity ring in a few months so that I also have the option of JUST wearing the band.

melf27 :  I ordered this band. https://www.etsy.com/listing/476089817/14k-rose-gold-ring-womens-wedding-band

I just use it as my wedding band right now, but plan to get another band and use this one as a spacer. The seller made it custom for my ring – the gap was the eact size of the head of my ring. 

I like it most of the time, but it does spin pretty bad at times which makes the gap end up in the wrong spot. Once I end up getting another wedding band, I will probably have the spacer band soldered so it stays put.

I had a low set-ring and didn’t like the gap at all either between my ER and my wedding band.  I had the ring reset into a cathedral setting that elevated the diamond and allowed any wedding band to sit flush against it. I love it!  I didn’t want to jump through hoops and get a new wedding band made or wear something in between to cover the gap.  Resetting solved the problem.  But if you love the look of your low-set ring, then a spacer or wrap would help.

I didn’t like the gap either because it would have been so big. I got this one in a V rather than a curve to fit around, and I think that looks better alone than a curve (chevron rings seem to be everywhere these days anyway!) no pics alone as they are attached now…

I also have a low-set round 6-prong solitaire and I’ve chosen a french pave eternity ring. It leaves a bit of a gap but I love it (two distinct rings!) and the pave is very low compared to like, prong-set eternity rings. Definitely look into pave style!

I’d aim to buy one of each as I’m the same as you but that may not be at all helpful! Most bees get used to the gap after a little while though, and curved alone could look lovely with the right ring.
