im new to wedding bee and its so nice to see how excited everyone else is about the same things I am! I was starting to think I was a little too obsessed with the ring…wedding details etc till I realised I was definitely not the only one! 😉
so I have a 0.59 carat solitaire, kind of cathedral style with approx 2.5mm band, and am thinking about my wedding band.
a) The diamond is set relatively low so I was a little concerned that the band may not sit flush next to the e ring and there may be a small gap (Pics please if you have similar). I don’t want a wedding band that is shaped around the stone as I will need to wear it on its own at work. I ideally want the exact same band profile as there is with the e band ring as I like them to match So although and very flat ring will sit under the stone, dont want the two bands to be different heights. Probably will be able to get away with it and have small not too noticeable gap
b) did you all get the same size wedding band as e ring? My engagement ring is a perfect fit, not too loose and also no denting of the skin/bulging either side. But when i have been trying on bands with the e ring, the extra thickness of the two means the e ring sits higher up the finger which is wider and I get a slight bulge ..?! But if I get a bigger ring it will be too loose when I wear it onits own. Eek.
thoughrs, advice, and pictures of your ring sets of you have similar ring to me please for inspiration if possible from top and side :)))) thanks In advance X

I would check out Etsy. That’s where I found my wedding band. It was so difficult to find a band that was low profile enough to sit flush. From the looks of your ring it seems you might have more of a struggle.

I had the same issue, wanting them to sit flush but the basket on my e-ring stuck out too far. I ended up going custom and have a wedding band that has two notches for the e-ring basket to fit into. I will be getting mine soldered but you could easily just spin the rings so the notches will be on the bottom when you wear it alone, here are a couple pics:

Ah that’s clever … ! is that a 3mm band? I’m not sure 2 notches would be enough for mine as the prongs are quite close together and don’t diverge much from the base .. What Is your setting like? could I trouble you for a setting pic? Perhaps they could do one wide notch for me if that’s the case. Really love your ring set. So chic.

I’d guess it’s about 3mm. My e-ring is 2.5 and they had to make the band a little wider so that it wouldnt be too narrow where the notches are. I’m not sure if this pic helps but this is it from the side.
here is a link to the setting on blue nile, their stock photos have a few more angles. http://www.bluenile.com/ca/build-your-own-ring/14k-white-gold-engagement-ring-setting_25670?elem=img&track=product
