Something similar happened to me.  We had a custom band made for my e-ring and I didn’t like it at all.  I didn’t spend as much as you did, but it was still a chunk of change for us.

I wound up getting a plain band for those days I didn’t want to wear my e-ring.  So most of the time I wear my wedding band on my right hand and the e-ring on the left.  Sometimes I just wear the wedding band.

If it’s that important that you have a band (according to him) you don’t have to spend a lot of money to get a plain gold one.  Heck, if you want to get titanium or tungsten it’s even less than gold.

Don’t stress yourself out about it.

Do you have pictures?  Perhaps the ladies here can recommend something 🙁

Odd question, but have you thought about having the rings sized up a bit?  3 rings, even thin ones, will take up a lot of space and feel tighter…if you have them sized up a little but they won’t feel as tight and you won’t have that ‘pudgy’ thing that sometimes happens when rings don’t fit right.  

Other than that, is it the look you don’t like or the idea that your engagement ring won’t be worn alone?  Would you feel better with a plain wedding band on your left hand, and wearing your engagement ring on your right hand?  Do you absolutely hate any rings with gaps?

@country chic:  I agree

Get a thin plain band.. It won’t take away from your ring and you can wear it alone as well. Do you have any pictures?

@MerryWidow:  Good suggestion. I was going to mention that the rings may need to be sized up a bit to reduce the “muffin top” effect. 

OP, I have three rings, and my very thin anniversary band is a half size larger than my e-ring and wedding band, and I still have a bit of that effect when I wear my anniversary band. The more rings you wear, the tighter your rings will feel and look, so that really may be all that is causing this. Depending on the type of bands you have, the affect you dislike may be easy to solve by simply increasing the size of both, or perhaps just one, of the bands.

Yes, if you are able to post pics, that would help us to be able to give you some additional advice.

Gotcha.  That ring is BEAUTIFUL!!  I like it by itself, but I bet 2 very thin pave bands (one on either side) would ALSO look fabulous, and give you lots of options!

I have short fingers to so I know what you mean.  After looking at your ring I see how beautiful it is.  Have you considered wearing a simple wedding band on your right hand?  This way the Fiance gets what he wants and it doesn’t distract from your e-ring or overcomes your left ring finger. 

Otherwise I’d suggest just being honest with him since you’rle the one wearing it.  You could always were the custom rings on the day of the wedding but day to day just wear the ering.

Since you like them, just not with your engagement ring, could you wear them on your right hand instead?

That is a beautiful ring!  Are you comfortable with just one of the bands?  If you aren’t, I totally understand.  I personally don’t like the tight “sausage” feeling when I have too many rings on.  It makes me feel trapped or something.  I hope you can find something that you are comfortable with!

Your ring is so pretty.  I’m sorry you hate the wedding rings.  Can you sell them to make some more the money back?  I would just keep telling your Fiance that you are fine with what you have and nothing is going to change your mind about it.
