That ring you’re considering is gorgeous. I can’t tell if it’s if it’s just the angle, but it looks either bent or out of round.  

Personally, I don’t care for open bands unless you absolutely can’t find one that will fit with your ring.

The ring you’re considering is gorgeous! I love the blue accents. Sorry I have nothing helpful to add. I’ll just be here drooling.

How likely would the open ends be to snagging I wonder?

simmons2019 :  could be great if it stays in place, or super annoying if it moves around on your finger at all. If you go this route I’d suggest making ery sure you get exactly the right size, because if they were to slide apart and the band were to turn I think it would be really irritating after a while.

I love the look of open bands, but not for a wedding band for practicality. I have a silver and bezel set moonstone open band ring and it gets caught in my hair, hairties, any clothing with loops, and anything else snaggable. I would be very worried about an open band ring easily going out of the round with daily wear. 

PS that e-ring is beautiful!! If you search the archives, there was a bee who has posted about fitting wedding bands to her EC ring which might be helpful. I think her username is Presto?

I have a ring that looks similar to yours in terms of low profile and larger setting that could make a curved band difficult. I am considering an open band but I think soildering them together would have to happen for it to work. 

I originally wanted a band I could wear solo for traveling and such, as my e-ring is a heirloom and i would be devistated if anything happened to it. But it’s low profile and bezel setting makes me less concerned about damage now that I’m actually wearing it, so soildering my wedding band to it is no longer out of the question. Hopefully that helps! Sorry I can’t help more, it doesn’t seem like too many Bees have this style ring, or issue so it’s hard to know what to do without trying something on in person!

simmons2019 :    in the jewelry shop I work in we’ve made open bands out of rings purchased at our store. We just cut it in half and size it down. But we always recommend soldering  then together because if they snag they lose their shape almost instantly. I personally love the look of you don’t want to distract from your center stone

I wouldnt like it because it would look odd by itself and snag on things. Id rather a gap! Or a raised ering so it fits under.

I have a low profile engagement ring so I too am trying to figure out the best wedding band to pair it with.  Mine isn’t quite a solitare (there are some marquises that form leaves on the band) but isn’t that bulky in the stone part so I’m leaning towards just having a gap between my engagement ring and wedding band as I do like a mismatched look.

I have one from James Allen, though I do not wear it as a wedding band; rather as a spacer to keep my WB from rubbing against my ER basket as well as minimize the gap between the two. And I LOVE it! It does what I wanted while also leaving a little ‘breathing’ room on the finger vs. the bands all smashed together. I absolutely did NOT want to solder my rings together so that I’d have versatility in whether I choose to wear my ER or not. 

You’ll want to know about big your ER basket is (width) to determine how wide the opening of the ‘open band’ should be. Hope this helps! 🙂 

 

ETA: Here it is from the side/angle so you can see how they sort of set together better and don’t rub.

I’m glad to see a thread like this because I’ve been thinking about having an open band made to go with my engagement ring as well!
