I see it, but I sell jewelry for a living, so I’m WAY more sensitive than the average person.  I won’t say anything to see if anyone else notices anything.

Can’t see anything wrong…. Maybe a closer pic?

@brandybelle:  the picture of your ring is not the best but i’m going to say the size is different and the shape of band is different.  are they both the same karat in gold = colour?  again, it may be the picture.

I am guessing the problem is the outer diameter of your engagement ring is larger than the outer diameter of your wedding band? If that’s it, I think it might bother me.  You should tell us if someone figures it out!

@brandybelle:  which is it?  size and shape?  did you just get the band?  can you return it for one that matches?  what about a trade in?  it looks like you will be going to a smaller width so it can’t be that much more.

we actually traded my dh’s previous wedding band for my new plain 2 or 3mm band and didn’t pay much difference.  check out different jewellery stores to see who can give you the best deal.  i went to a small family owned jewellery store.

It is pretty noticable, I must say. It doesn’t necessarily look bad, just not perfectly matched. Can’t you go back to the place you bought your Engagement Ring from and get it from them?

did you order your band in the same size as your ering?  they appear to be 2 different sizes.

take them to a jeweller to find out what size they are.

To me it does look like it’s the same height, but that the profiles are different. Your e-ring’s profile is more circular/round and your wedding band’s profile is flatter.
I do not know much about jewelery, but I would guess that it can be changed by filing it down to a more round profile. Filing down should be easier/cheaper since your are not adding material (gold).
