    I’m afraid I’m gonna have the same pickle as you, so I’m choosing to have a crossed-over band since mine won’t be able to sit flush with my e-ring.. I love the look of it by itself and with the ring!

    I got a curved band and orignially did not want (or like) a curved band.  It ended up being the best fit for my e-ring.  I went with a curved eternity band so that if I do not want to wear my e-ring I can turn my wedding band and have the curved part face the palm side of my hand, thus showing a straightband with diamonds.

    Well I didn’t vote because you don’t have an option for me.  I was decidedly against getting a curved band because I didn’t like how they looked alone.  I got two straight bands to sit on either side of my ring with a gap.  I don’t regret it.  I love the look of all of them together and I love that I can wear the wedding bands on their own as well. 

    So bottom line, I don’t regret having  a gap.

    I don’t know about everyone else, but in the past (first marriage), I never ended up wearing my wedding band alone in the 16 years I was married, though I thought I would. πŸ™‚ Just a thought.

    @-crayola-:  Thanks!  It was the compromise with my husband since I wanted two bands for each side of my e-ring or one curved and one straight, and he said I only can have one (for now).  It cost a little more up front but was worth it.

    When I wear my curved band alone, I turn it around so the curved side is inside my hand!  I had mine custom made to do this on purpose, which my sister in law suggested I do.  I uploaded a picture of my rings together and one of my band alone.  Hope this helps!

    I was having this same issue. My band doesn’t fit perfectly flush, but it’s close enough. I didn’t want to get a curved band because I figured there would be times that I wear my wedding band alone and the curve would bother me.

    I absolutely wanted a straight band to go with my e-ring because I love the gap. Two month after getting married, I had some slight hesitation and wondered what a lightly curved band would do for my e-ring. I still want a gap but perhaps a slight contour band would be nice. Stopped in at my jewellery store and tried some on, which was fun. Still, my diamond band looked best with my e-ring, like they were meant to be together in terms of style. 

    So I am totally back into my gorgeous eternity wedding band and rocking the gap!

    My set:

    Two curved bands I tried on…hehe!

    SunnySquirrel:  Hi there!  I know this thread is very old, but just curious where you got your curved eternity band??  My ring is similar to yours & thinking that style may work with mine too!  Thanks πŸ˜‰
