Hi! Not engaged yet, but my grandmother has a gorgeous OEC diamond with tapered baguettes that is also from the 1930s. She has a baguette ring guard. I’ve attached somewhat similar photos. I think any two birch guard would look stunning with the blue.

Oh, one more. Not a double guard but a single:

With a circle that pronounced, if you don’t want a gap, you’ll have to go custom. My ring is from the 20’s and that’s what I did

I think you’d have to get something custom to get the exact measurements correct.  You could try something with a gap, like an enhancer like this:

That’s if you want to wear them together for sure.  I’ve also heard of people wearing the wedding band on the right hand, or vice versa, moving the e-ring to the right hand.

I’d totally rock the gap with that ring, I also personally don’t like having a curved band as my wedding band since to me-it would look weird if I wanted to wear it alone. Most antiques were stand alone pieces and not part of sets till later since styles and fashion evolved over time. My grandmother never had an engagement ring in 1938 but she had a hell of a wedding band with 5 nice sized diamonds on a platinum band. That’s the only ring she ever wore when married that we know of. If it were me I’d get a channel set antique band or a plain band and if you want to later add different bands. There’s no wrong way so take my words with a grain of salt lol

laurenalaine83 :  I think you should have a custom made band exacrly to your specifications. Something old and something new would be a lovely sentiment to start your marriage on!

I would rock the gap with a super thin diamond band (try Etsy? they have a ton of great vintage pieces), or wear a plain gold/platinum band on the other hand.

Still a waiting bee, but I decided to keep my rings non-flush. Engagement Ring will be some kind of bezel set art deco sapphire solitaire and then a band in a similar style but not tight around it. Flush set rings with the bezels are a pretty modern look and I wanted to keep mine very vintage!
