to gap or not to gap is personal preference 🙂  My original ering had no gap with my band but when we had to have it remade I changed the gallery not thinking about it and now have a gap BUT I’ve always loved gaps so I love it!

@New2moissanite:  I personally LOVE gaps between the band and e-ring, and I actually wish my stone was lower set so there would be a larger gap in between.  

It really comes down to what you prefer though.  Perhaps you can bring the band you already own to the store and compare how each one looks.  I’m sure either one would look beautiful, but at least you will get a better feel for which one may be more comfortable and/or look better.

Mine has a gap and it definitely doesn’t bother me.  I like the look of the wedding band being its own straight ring, if that makes sense.  I’d wear the straight band with your e-ring for a day or two and see if you like it.

@New2moissanite:  There are tons of gap threads here on the bee.  I am strongly in the No Gap camp, but many bees wouldn’t get rid of their gaps for anything.  I had a teeny tiny gap originally, so I had my e-ring prongs shaved down to eliminate the gap.

I’m not sure whether or not mine will have a gap, but I don’t really care either.  

I like the look of gaps, it makes it a bit more ‘airy’ and light

My ring has a floral basket so I’ll definitely has a very slight gap at the least. I prefer it that way because it showcases two different rings. Sometimes, rings no gap look like an e-ring with a wider shank.

I like gaps!  I think it is nice to see the distinction of 2 rings.

I personally love a little gap in between an ering and a wedding band. That’s how mine is, actually! That way it makes it look like 2 separate rings instead of 1 big one.

@New2moissanite:  I didn’t want a gap so I got a curved band that my engagement ring fits into nicely. It also looks nice on its own!

I love the gap! I really like that it shows two different rings, and I can wear them on their own without it looking strange.

I have a tiny gap…it’s not super noticeable at all. Had the gap been more than it is…it would have bothered me.

I changed my setting just before we got married because of the gap it would cause. I love that my rings sit together now but the funny thing is I’m always pushing them apart on my finger so there’s a little gap as I like seeing them like that. Im really odd!
