My boyfriend and I picked out a non-traditional london blue topaz engagement ring and I’m starting to think about what type of wedding band would go well with it. The stone is big and the setting is not raised, so I don’t know if a straight band would work well with it. Any ideas for what types of bands would work well with this ring?
I’m fine with my wedding band not being completely flush against the engagement ring, but a straight band would sit really far away from the band of the engagement ring so I don’t know if I would want to go with that. However, I think it would be nice to have a band that I could wear alone if I wanted to. A curved band doesn’t really allow for that. I am a personal trainer/fitness instructor and wouldn’t want to damage my ring while working out. Here is what it looks like with a cheap straight band that I had had home.
Did anyone else have a similar predicament? Any ideas for wedding bands or pictures of your own sets would be helpful! Especially if your band is curved or does not sit flush. Thanks!

@Dori1987: That’s a REALLY pretty engagement ring!! Why not pop into a few stores and see if you can find a slightly curved band that would hug your ring but not align perfectly (cause that’s no fun and you want them to look like separate rings! :)) and then get a cheap plain metal band to wear when you’re not wearing your set, like presumably at work?

@Dori1987: I loooove your ring! As for bands.. I’m with the PP. Pop into a jewelry store and try on bands, see what you like. However, I like the gap look, so I think it looks nice with a straight band, especially if the band is thin, like on your ring. A 2mm micropave band would look really nice. 🙂
There are some nice pictures on this post:

@Dori1987: If it was me, I’d have a jeweler alter the e-ring so that a w-band could slip under it and sit flush. It looks do-able from the side view of your ring.

You might be able to have something custom made.
