I have an unusual engagement ring, I’m in love with it, but it’s presenting some wedding band issues…
Firstly, I want to be able to wear a plan wedding band, no jewels (so I never have to take it off).
Secondly, because of the ring’s shape, a regular wedding band leaves a “gap” near the main diamond.. And I HATE it.
I’ve been trying to think of what to do.. I think the solution will be to wear two rings – one a custom made ring that has one side perfectly fitted to but up against the e-ring and the otherside completely flat, to wear a plan band next to..
Below is an awful hand drawn picture I did.. I’m looking for comments/thoughts or suggestions.. HELP!
p.s. – sorry for the giant pic!

@Brooke1226: I like the concept you’ve drawn! Seems like a good plan.

@Brooke1226: I have some questions. Why get two bands when you could just get one plain one which fits in like you have drawn? Or is the problem that you sometimes take off your engagement ring and want to be able to leave your wedding ring on when you do that without it looking weird?
I like what you have drawn and think that it will look brilliant, I just wondered why you wanted two rings (though I think I understand why)

@Everdeen: you got it exactly right. I sometimes need to take off my enagagement ring to protect the diamonds. I want to be able to wear a plain band without it looking odd.

@Brooke1226: funny, a first I thought you drew on your hand (why would you do that to yourself ?) then I realized it was a picture you drew on.
I like the 2 ring idea to close the gap!

It’s genius! I love the extra bling your design will bring and the fact you want a plain band to wear all the time. I also have a plain band I wear all the time. (I do take off my diamonds, now that I had them professionally cleaned and sized). I got married with the plain band and it was blessed, so it is very special.
You should go into jewellery design!

Have the middle one soldered to your ering and get a plain wedding band. Then you only have two rings instead of three and the one isnt oddly shaped to make provision for ering setting, ecause it is soldered to the ering. But, off course, if three bands wont bother you, it will have the same look. Brilliant idea!

@Scar_cats_tic: Ops! It does look a bit like I drew on myself..!
@womanofsubstance: Thanks! I’ve been so nervous about the design, I like it, but it’s nice to know someone else does too 🙂
@Katie Koekblik: Thanks for the idea! the setting is a bit unusual, but I’ll def chat to the jeweller

I think your idea sounds like a really good one. I’m gettnig an unusual shaped engagement ring too, so I’ll keep this in mind if I end up not liking it with a straight band.

That’s a great idea, I would do the same!

Here’s a man’s opinion for you:
My wife wanted the same thing, a band that could be worn alone. We’ve been married a month and she’s ready to have them fused together because they don’t stay aligned.
If you’re thinking about wearing one band (no jewels) for everyday and saving the bling for special occasion, I wouldn’t worry about matching them. Just wear one at a time. Maybe there’s another special ring that he’s given you that you could wear.
If your fiance is anything like me, he wants you to wear your engagement ring everyday. I put alot of thought into my wife’s ring and will have to drive my p.o.s. car for at least 2 more years, now. I would imagine your fiance made some sort of sacrifice, as well. He may also be embarrassed that his wife just wears a plain band, either showing others that he’s poor or meaning that you don’t like the ring very much.
My advice is to have something made that fits your ring, have them fused together so that they look perfect when you wear them, and wear them as much as you can (unless you’re a mechanic, or something…)
