    Because they look unfinished and imperfect and ugly.

    I think a high end ring in some setting looks so riche and ballin lol

    I have a plain soliatre and dh even had it reset just match my band. I am also a matchy matchy person. So that’s probably why!!

    So I’d say depends on the ring, if I had a bigger center Stone and baggets on either side I’d be ok with more diamonds / mois to top it off and wouldn’t need it to match.

    I do think tho some look like a Mish mash like you just put all your rings on one finger and no thought into how it looks

    I think they look pretty with very VERY delicate settings!

    I was so anti ring gap, and was very upset when when learned my ering wont sit flush with a straight band. Now that I am actually wearing my band, I love the gap and will purposefully make a little separation sometimes!

    psychedelicunicorn :  The question was why don’t I like them?  Would you rather I hem and haw around my reasoning.  A lot of people DO like the look. I’m not one of them.

    I’m also not a fan of ring gaps, but I think it can work if:

    • Person has long fingers to pull it off!
    • More than 2 rings, so that the ring gaps look deliberate rather than an oversight.
    • Swirly rings that some people have posted here that had gaps on one ring already.

    But to each their own! I love that we all have different tastes so we don’t just all end up with the same rings! 🙂

    mrsmatheson :  actually…I have ocd and obsessing over gaps, matching band or one little prong that is not exactly lined up perfectly….is very much a symptom of OCD.

    so is checking that I locked a door multiple times, washing my hands over and over or just not doing something because I can’t do it perfectly

    penny1403 :  As I’m sure you know, there are various forms of OCD and with that comes many different types of symptoms for different people. I wasn’t trying to say that symptoms like yours don’t exist, just that the ways in which people were using the term OCD were sometimes incorrect. Most people assume that symptoms, such as the ones you listed as having yourself, are the only or most common OCD symptoms but that isn’t the case. Unfortunately, this leads so many people to misuse the term. That’s all 🙂

    I wonder if, when you get a ring that ends up not fitting flush with a band (maybe you didn’t think about it, like me lol) .. you just learn to love it 😉

    My engagement ring is made in a way that will always have a gap no matter what band is next to it. I found it annoying at first but honestly I just love my rings so much I don’t really care. I cant imagine having anything else now.
