as we think about wedding bands, I know that i want the stones in my band to be the same height as the side stones in my e-ring, but it seems as though my center stone is set a tad too low for it to sit flush if i do that. i am debating on having my diamond raised in the center-sitting flush is super important to me – but my Fiance is a bit upset that there would be a change in my ring – i am so torn! any suggestions on what to do – or ways to get her to see why it doesn’t mean i don’t LOVE my ring (oh my do i!!!!) if i do end up changing it

I did the same with mine. Basically I had to get the stone reset but my husband understood because I didn’t want a gap because one ring would always be askew or a contour band because they could never be worn seperately. I think you should be happy with how your rings fit together since you’ll be wearing both of them for much longer than wearing a single engagement ring.

@camrie: thanks camrie! i think that she will understand when she sees it – i think that she was just hurt originally because she thought that perhaps i didn’t love it – which i do! – also, i checked out your ring-absolutely beautiful! 🙂

There’s also doing a shaped band. I have a weirdly shaped e-ring (octagonal halo – what on earth???) The jeweler he got the ring from was able to find a diamond band that fit with the ring for less than a matching plain band would have cost.

alter it! if the look of the two rings together bugs you, I bet you won’t stop thinking about it until you get it done.

First, I think you should take it to a jeweler and see if it can be done without messing with the structural integrity of the ring. Your side stones look rather large (gorgeous!) so it looks like the head may have to be raised significantly.
If it can be done, think long and hard about whether you want your center stone to sit that high. Low set stones are less prone to getting “knocked” and caught on things than their high set counterparts.
Just a couple things to think about before you let someone alter your beautiful ring! 🙂

@CaliforniaLove: thanks so much! you are definitely right, I will have to check with the jeweler, we were super lucky to work with a great one to make both of our rings, so i am hoping that he would be able to give me some options, since you are right, too high wouldn’t be good at all! and thanks for the compliment, i do love it (though sometimes I worry we went too big on the side stones now that I will also have a wedding ring with it) i love getting such great perspective from all of the bees! 🙂
