Ahh ! So glad you posted this! I am so going to follow! I am going to have the same problem :/ the closest thing to flush I’ve found so far is a ring gaurd  ( pictured with my ring below) and the band that actually matches my set ( stock picture below). Stuller makes both and our baskets are pretty similar, setting wise. They might work for you too! If not, hopefully we’ll get some great ideas from all the bees! I’d love other options myself! 🙂 good luck!

I had the exact same basket setting/ dilemma. I also wanted a band to sit flush but it seemed like an impossible task because of how low the basket was .The only Solution I saw was to either get a ring wrap/guard/ enhancer or a band that is either curved or has a step. (But I know you’re trying to stay away from custom) curved rings are very popular though , so you wouldn’t have to have that custom made. They didn’t work out for me because I knew I wanted to be able to wear my band alone at times & wearing alone would look odd since you could tell that an engagement ring would be missing. I’m sorry im not much help. I actually wound up changing my setting to sit higher

You’ll have to get a curved band in order for there to be no gaps. They are fairly common so I doubt you’ll have to go custom. 

One of my engagement rings has a low set basket and had to have a curved band to sit flush.

I had the same problem with my setting.

I wanted a wedding band that could be worn alone so that ruled out any curved or step rings for me. 

After a day in NYC diamond district and trying on rings of every kind in platinum we found this which the jeweller made a few tweaks to so it was perfect.

so maybe try rings with elements to tie in to your e ring? A band with lots of little round diamonds maybe? There might still be a gap but it would all in sync.

This is what I have, but in platinum. I have a basket/trellis style setting, similar to a Tiffany Lucida. This gave me the curve I needed to sit flusher to my e-ring, but still enables me to wear my band by itself.

redredwine:  I tried a sample on in person with my ering.  I had no idea what I wanted when we went band shopping, but knew I didn’t want a curved band that couldn’t stand alone.  I was definitely thinking i’d end up with a gap which would have been fine. However, this one just worked and set off the ering beautifully and fit so well. 

I got the ering setting and set (heirloom diamond) and bought my band on Jeweler’s Row in Philadelphia.

However, I’ve seen my band online from a store in the Diamond District in New York City.  It’s called a wave band. 

Other bands that worked well were infinity style ones and vintage style ones like the marquise and dot one from Blue Nile.
