Hi! This is my first post so be patient with me!
I recently got engaged and am OBSESSED with my engagment ring. It is exactly what I wanted and I cannot stop staring at it!
It is a 1.15 carat round cut solitaire. The head is set into the shank, so that no wedding band will really sit flush with it unless it is curved. I really want to know what it would look like with a wedding band, but every one I have tried on has had such a large gap because they aren’t the right size for my finger so I can’t get a good idea of what it’ll look like.
Can I see some bees’ sets that are similar and get your opinions of why you chose straight or curved?

My e-ring is curved and I didn’t like the looks of a straight band with it. I thought I may end up having a custom band created but found one I loved that mirrored the curve in my e-ring and the emeralds matched.
I didn’t get them soldered because my e-ring is vintage and I didn’t want to do anything unnecessary to it. Since they’re separate, they slide apart sometimes. But I love the way they look together!
Your e-ring is so pretty!

lindsayE Thank you! I love your set! It’s awesome you were able to find that wedding band to match so perfectly. I don’t think I’ll have mine soldered either. I just like the idea of them staying separate for some reason.

Commenting to follow – I don’t think a straight band will work with my bezel e-ring so I’m also thinking about a curved band and would love to see some more examples!

Straight band with an oval halo. I knew I wanted a straight band if I ever want to wear my band alone. love it so far!

I have a cushion e solitare and I don’t know if i should get a straight or curved so in the mean time I got a curved band 😊

I have tried both and my setting sits so low, and the gap bothers me so much, I will have to have one custom made. They said they can cut a notch out of the bands so it will sit flush.

Straight. I am personally not a fan of curved bands. To me they look dated.

My setting is very similar to yours and doesn’t allow a band to sit completey flush against it, but I went with a straight band anyways. The gap is minimal enough that it doesn’t bother me. I don’t like wide gaps as I like the bands to look like they go together.

I have a curve and I love it. It has a small gap in between, sometimes I notice, sometimes I don’t. But I love the black stones

Although technically straight. I class it as a curbed band with the way it fits to me ering

Have you had a look here?
Personally, I want a bow-tie shape so that my small solitaire can sit in the middle, but that may not work for yours if it’s bigger.

Mine needed a curved band – it looked weird with a straight one! (IMO) I love it 😍

Mine is curved ~ it actually came as a set, and the profiles of my rings have engraving/diamonds so they are quite complimentary. I feel like you can wear a curved band alone if you choose, but it is all personal preference. I like that mine sit flush together, and don’t plan to have them soddered (wedding is this April). You should go with what you love!
