Beautiful! Where did you find that wedding band (the one with the different shapes)? I like the look of all three haha, but if you can only go with one maybe you should take the photo to a jeweler and see how much it would be to customize this piece for you?

I think it looks the best with just the milgrain band. I love the mismatched look and am not a big fan of the contoured band.  Because you have a split-shank e-ring, the gap doesn’t look weird to me at all, because the e-ring already has gaps within itself (does that make sense?)

I don’t think a jeweler could contour an existing band, but you could have a custom contoured band made with the milgrain design if you wanted to.

I love the milgrain band! I don’t think you need to have it contoured, though. All of your problems would be solved if you take it to a good jeweler  and ask them to lift up or raise the basket that holds your center stone.

Once the center stone sits a tiny bit higher, you will be able to wear whatever band you want and it will sit flush. If you go this route, do your research and find someone who is really good and will provide you with a wax model before the work is done.

It doesn’t even have to sit that much higher. They can probably raise it just a smidge. Get several opinions from different jewelers, they may very well tell you different ways of going about it and give you different price ranges. There are some ring styles that may not allow this kind of work. Hopefully your ring design is such that this could be done!
