I read a lot of Bee Boards when I was wedding planning -and wish I’d seen pictures of bands like mine. So I thought I’d post mine in hopes that i help someone else!
We had my rose-gold morganite engagement ring custom-made from a local jeweler. It took over 3 months (warning) to make – but I love love love it. The stone is pretty large, 9.5mm wide “pillow” cut – and so finding a wedding band that would fit around the basket was difficult. We didn’t want to do custom again, because it took so long. I ended up finding a gorgeous diamond ring that curved around the entire basket- as if it were made for it. It is interesting b/c the wedding band is curved, but my E-ring is square-ish. The effect is really beautiful and soft.
There is a tiny wedge of open space between the e-ring basket and the diamond band at the point where the curve meets the e-ring shaft. It doesn’t bother me and is really pretty small on both sides. We have a second ring on order to fit on the other side of my e-ring to balance things out.
It was hard to find the right wedding band – I hope this helps someone else!

Your e-ring is beautiful! The curved wedding band is amazing, it looks perfect together. Can’t belive you found this without having it custom made.

Lovely!! I also like the curve with the square cushion cut. I think that if the hug is too tight, it’s not as nice as when there is a little bit of space between the two bands. Here’s an antique filigree ring that illustrates how I love a curved ring to fit:

@kannm6: We found the idea for the ring online while I was cruising around. I printed a picture and took it to a local jeweler, who sort of made it their own. They made the mold and everything, got the stone from a gem cutter they work with. (I’m sure there’s a more eloquent name for that profession).
@Pinkpiggynat: You want more pictures?! Ha. Well, I did just get the second ring in – and it’s just perfect. I’ll have to take some pictures with both – will post more asap.
@Scintillante: Gorgeous – love the detail on the ring!
