I have a bubble and breath set, so they are shared prongs like your band. I won’t wear them until my anniversary. I think you should get a spacer band. I was looking at cuff spacer bands today that only go 3/4 way around your finger. They stop the rings rubbing, but won’t ruin the delicate look.

There are also teeny tiny .80mm spacer bands too. They don’t have to be giant and super noticable 🙂 mine is in platinum and I got it from an etsy vendor. Happy to share their name if you think it would be helpful. 

Here is my set. Sorry it’s not all the way down my fingers. Was pregnant at the time and hands had swollen but you get the idea.

BakingQueen :  yeah, you’ll need a spacer band for as long as you have the ER setting you have.  I too love the look of 6 prongs but they do rub on the rings next to them.  Soldering them together would solve for that problem, but like you said it might change the look and your always tied to wearing both.  I really love your wedding ring – would you mind sharing where you got it?

You are probably not going to want to hear this-  I was 100% sold on a shared prong band for my wedding ring, and my jeweler got very honest with me.  He said that type of setting is very delicate, and will require multiple repairs over a lifetime.  Because the prongs are shared, once the first stone gets knocked lose and repair is made, the ring loses its integrity and is prone to additional stones popping out.  I know you love your band- as do I, it’s STUNNING-  are you willing to wear it on special occasions, and wear a sturdier band for everyday wear?
