Can you post a pic of them together?

I sent one back too before I found the right one.  It was WAY too thin for my e-ring, and since my ring has a high setting, you could barely see the band!

I have a feeling that I will wear my rings on different hands.  My engagement ring is pretty tough to find something to sit flush with it, so I may have to wear them on separate hands.

Mine isn’t going to sit flush, but I’m still going to wear them together. I love the fact that they match without being a matched set. All about character.

That said, I know plenty of people who wear their engagement ring on their right hand.

AND if you don’t LOVE it you should keep bringing it back until you do!

Congratulations on getting your band!!!

I am sorry it doesn’t sit flush to your engagement ring. Do you have a picture of your wedding band and ering on your hand, so we can see it; maybe it isn’t as bad as you think it is, and also a lot of women wear rings that don’t sit flush. If it is bothering you, can you exchange it; and then get something custom made? That is what I had to do, and the custom band cost just a little bit less that the original band that I wanted to get that didn’t sit flush. If you are the type of person, like me, that will be wanting to wear your engagement ring all the time, you need to be happy with it, so if I were you, I would look into seeing if you could exchange it for one that will sit flush or have a band custom made.

My ring is a split shank, and so I would have had to have a band custom made to sit flush to the ring. Fortunately, I love the way a straight band looks with my e-ring, so I just got a plain eternity band. I will probably wear it without the e-ring mostly, unless we’re going out somewhere, where I’ll want more bling 🙂

I know several women who wear their engagement ring on their right hand, or dont wear it at all except for special occasions. All of this played a role in me deciding not to have an e-ring at all.

I don’t wear my e-ring at all anymore (especially now that I’m pregnant! That bloats makes two rings feel really constrictive) I usually just wear my wedding band unless we’re going  somewhere.

I have an idea, get a thin plain (gold white gold or platinum) band and have them cut it to the shape of your ring and solder it together as one wedding set. Then wear your otherband on the flush side. In other words one side of the band is cut to fit “in” to your engagement ring like a puzzle making the other side flush to fit your other band.

This is what I am doing, because my ring also has protruding edges and I want a band that is not soldered in case I go somewhere where I do not want to bring my diamond, like out of the country.

 I work in a jewelry store and that tends to be a good option. Or you can get a matching band and where it on the other side so you have symmetry even though there will be gaps on either side.

Good luck.

What does ‘sit flush’ mean?

It means there won’t be a gap between the rings.
