    I would keep it, esp if you’ve worn it for that long, you’ll be sad to see it go and I’m sure by now you have an emotional attachment to it.

    What about getting a custom band done?

    Have you talked to Tacori, they MUST make a matching band….

    I had a similar dilemma. my ring had side details and literally all wedding bands were too high profile and covered it up.  I had my e-ring modified by having a jeweler add a 1mm strip of gold inside the top of the band to raise everything up a little (and of course it had to be sized up to make room for the extra metal). 

    it cost $400 to have this done, but it was worth it because now any band looks good with my e-ring!

    sorry, I don’t have a photo of it handy right now. I hope my description helps!

    OR: different advice: maybe wear your e-ring on your right hand and get whatever you like for your wedding band?

    Agree with love…There has to be a matching band.

    I would never switch out my engagement ring. It has a special emotional attachment. It’s the ring your fiance chose for you and that makes it special. I think you would regret changing it. I would go for a custom band. or some girls wear the e-ring and wedding band on separate hands (but it sounds like you wanted yours together).

    It’s difficult to tell from the pic you posted; however, the shape of your ring looks somewhat similar to mine (cathedral mounting with an elevated center-stone diamond, though I have baguette side stones), and I have a Memoire seven-stone, 1 carat, petite-prong, half-eternity band that sits flush against my e-ring, because it is low enough to not conflict with my center stone. Perhaps something like that would work for you as well.

    @love108:  I was just going to say this.  I have a tacori as well and mine has a matching band!

    Stick with your ring and wear your band on the other hand. That way you can get your diamonds that you wanted on the band and nothing will take away from your ering

    Absolutely keep the ring you love, it is beautiful!  If it’s a little gap from the prongs, it might not bother you as much as you think because you could still glimpse the details.  I also love the suggestion of adding a little bit of metal to make it sit up higher too…if that works, great!  

    My ring also has detailing on the sides (which I never expected to like because I always thought they’d be wasted LOL) and I’ve just come to terms with the fact that it will be hidden once I add the band.  Like my own little secret Wink
