    I had the same issue and originally wanted a shaped band that sat perfectly flush, but in the end, once I saw the molds, I went with a shaped band and a slight gap as I liked that the rings looked distinct.

    As to whether to wear a band separately, that really depends on if you’re happy to wear your engagement ring on your other hand. It wasn’t an option for me personally as I still wanted to wear my engagement ring on my left hand, and I don’t like the look of my band on it’s own (even though it’s not that crazy a shape; it’s a wishbone shape), so it was wear both on the left hand, or wear my engagement ring on my right and get a plain, straight band for my left.

    Another option is to actually get both a standalone ring and a shaped band so that you can mix and match if you want to.

    I think if I was you I would get a wedding band made to fit the engagement ring and for your birthday after the wedding or your first anniversary get a stand alone ring.  Even though my ring isn’t a unique shape I plan on getting 2, one plain band to wear with my pave engagement ring and a pave band to wear alone.

    Have you checked that the jeweler you bought it from doesn’t have a matching band?

    BeeDD :  what if someone like David Klass made it?  he can customize something that would fit perfectly to that if your biggest goal was to get it to sit flush.

    I would probably get a shaped band custom made for it.

    Although I plan to only wear my engagement ring. But it’s a different ring and different context!

    The shape is not that uncommon honestly, I think if you shop around you will find something to fit. If not I would get a band  custom made. It’s too pretty not to wear on your left hand.

    I have an odd shaped engagement and nothing would fit my ring either. I wasn’t happy with the gaps and had custom made ring to sit flush with my engagement ring. Initially I didn’t like the idea that I couldn’t just wear my wedding ring alone. But I’ve realised that whenever I worry about damaging my engagement ring, I worry about my wedding ring too so just take them both off.

    I went to a UK high street jeweller for my custom ring and it took them a couple of months to make. I put the order in around the end of September and it came back to me in between Christmas and New Year, due to the other Christmas and valentines orders in. Just a heads up if you are getting married in March.
