I’m getting married in October of this year and have been doing some wedding band shopping. I found a great online deal to purchase the wedding band that I have on in the photos but the band does not sit flush with my engagement ring. For some reason, this bothers me a little. Can I get some opinions about this pair? I’m not sure that I want to keep this wedding band (even though I got it for a steal) or whether I want to get a ring that contours. What do you ladies think? Any other bees have an e-ring and wedding band that don’t sit flush? Please show me if you do!

fran515: I’m all about gaps, so I love it. One thing to think about is if the edges of the diamonds will rub against the prongs. That will cause damage over time. Hard for me to see from those pics, but something to consider.
I noticed on close up the wedding band seems a lot higher than the e ring band. I prefer the bands to be more similar height, but I dont think it looms bad.

I’m doing custom bands contoured to fit my engagement ring (three stone) so as not to have rubbing. The rinf design is delicate and I don’t want my wedding band to damage my engagement ring.

Yea, the diamonds do seem to rub against the prongs. Thanks for the insight @selinameh
I’m pretty sure I’m going to return it at this point.

fran515: this is my personal opinion but I do not like a large gap. I searched and searched until I found a band that sit flush with my e-ring. Another option is to wear your e-ring as a RHR and wearing your wedding band alone. Both of your rings are very pretty.

I love gaps. I like that you can see skin in between the rings and I feel like both rings get a chance to shine.

I don’t mind gaps but I think that gap is almost too big, making them look messy together. One thing to keep in mind is you can have them soldered together in the back to keep the gap as small as possible and to prevent rubbing (it costs around $45 at my jewelers). I once had a setting similar to yours where there would always be a slight gap and I found that a twisted band looked great with it. Beautiful engagement ring!

If it bothers you now it’ll definitely bother you later, better return it bee

fran515: you could change the head on your e-ring to be higher and then your wedding band will flush up against it. I think that wedding band is stunning. You can wear it with your e-ring or alone, it’s that beautiful

Some people like gaps, some people don’t care, and some people don’t like gaps. It’s all just personal preference. Though, if it’s damaging to each other then that’s something to watch out for. Personally, I’m picky about it lining up perfectly. So, I’m not fond of gaps except in certain cases.
Do what you feel is best! Good luck!

Mine don’t sit 100% flush but the small gap doesn’t bother me. Darling Husband (first time writing that on here!) actually likes that they look like two separate rings to symbolise the two events.
I do think that the gap you’ve got with that band may be a little too wide for my preference. Is it just sitting up against the prong? If so – looks like it might be too high and maybe look for a shorter wedding band to try?

Either do mine, buy I LOVE mine

I definitely don’t mind gaps, in fact, I purposefully created a gap with my rings because I did not want my wedding band hidden by my engagement ring. However, that gap does not look planned out although it is a really pretty band. I agree with a previous poster above; if it bothers you now it definitely will bother you later! Here’s my set; I tried to make the gap look purposeful. Good luck!

It can be hard with a 6 prong basket to get a wedding band to sit flush, unless it’s a bit higher of a setting. I switched from a 6 prong low setting to a four prong compass setting that is a bit higher because I personally prefer the wedding band to sit against the engagement ring. A curved band is a good option! I would also try to find out the height measurements (of the basket on your ring) to help find a wedding band that sits how you like. 🙂
