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.

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!  🙂
