I wish I had a picture of my wedding band with my ring but it’s locked up in the safe at my inlaws 😫 But my wedding band is a three row pave that looks exactly like my engagement ring band and sits flush

My band was originally contoured to wrap flush around the stone, but I had the jeweler straighten it. I like the small gap and would have been completely okay with a larger gap.

Check on Lauren b’s website and Instagram. They have a ton of both.

My engagement ring is rounded so I will have to get a super thin band or get a curved wedding band. I have really small fingers so I don’t have room for any gap lol. Because of this, it will be extremely hard to find a wedding band. Therefore, if I were you, I would try to find an engagement ring where your band can sit flush. That way, you can add more or switch the bands out no problem! 

Here’s my engagement ring.

I actually have two wedding bands, one that curves with my middle stone and one that is straight, because sometimes I like the gap but I like the shadow band for a more low profile look 🙂 I pretty much just go with what I feel that day!

I’m big on no gap and my ring was designed to ensure a perfect fit with my wedding band. But, to each their own!

The shape of the stone will not determine if a wedding band will be flush or not. It is the shape and height of the prongs/basket used to hold the stone. Here are few examples of similar sets that can be made flush or not. The other issue to be aware of is your wedding band will rub on the prongs (like the example on the right)…this will wear away the prongs (bad). 

If you look at rings shoulder on, like these examples, you can probably get a good idea about how the rings will fit together. Size of the stone will matter. The bigger the stone (spread/carats), the taller the stone. So, to keep it flush, they need to raise the head.

I’ll be rockin a gap – just a wee one from the collar of my e-ring. At least it’ll stop the band from rubbing.

A spacer band will keep the rubbing from happening.  You can get some gold filled ones in different widths to start, (which width needed depends on your individual rings), then once you know for sure you can invest in a solid gold one.

wrinkledbacon :  I’ve picked a 0.7 but not tried on the actual ring and your set is making me very excited, looks like the perfect size!

Here’s mine.  I have a cathedral setting so it sits flush.  On a lot of sets I like the look of a gap though.
