@frenchfries: We ended up paying the extra money to have the rings custom made and I am glad I did. I love the look of the two bands sitting flush against my Engagement Ring. It was such a frustration trying to find the right band with the existing styles out there. I am beyond thrilled with the result.

All of your posts were very helpful!! I am having an issue finding a wedding band to fit with my halo engagement ring. My engagement ring was purchased at Jared and so I figured I’d look for a wedding band there as well but I was very disappointed to learn that they were unable to find a wedding band to sit flush against my halo e-ring. The salesperson told me my options were to A) wear my e-ring on my right hand and a wedding band on my left, B) alternate wearing a band and e-ring on different days or c) custom design a wedding band to fit with my e-ring but he said it could cost anywhere from 1000-5000 dollars and thats just plain crazy and doesn’t fit within my budget. I did find a very thin diamond band that happens to fit underneath my setting (which sits right on my finger) but the band was a little tighter and my e-ring is a little looser so thats how it fit underneath the setting to sit flush. I may just do that even though I’m not thrilled. I am very disappointed with Jared and my limited options here. I know I could have a wedding band that didn’t sit flush but I find that it doesn’t feel comfortable on my finger from what I tried on. If anyone has any other options or suggestions of what they did, I’d more more than happy to hear them!!! Thank you!

I was determined to get a band that fit flush with my halo. But when my fiance and I started looking we were disappointed by the selection for my ring. It was widely known that to find a band that fits would be very difficult.
I found one bad that had potential. It was very thin and would fit kinda below the diamond. The second option I found was a curve band that didn’t fit flush but it looked all right together. I’m thinking about convincing my fiance I need another on on top of my e-ring to make it symmetrical .
Here’s what my rings look like together:
Herein lies the problem:
The portion of the ring that holds up the diamond is the main reason why halos are so hard to match with a band.

Mine don’t sit flush…but it looks fine. I didn’t want to a curved band because sometimes I like to wear the band alone. I don’t have a pic of them on my finger, but here they are together.

My setting is very similar to yours (obviously since its a halo as well 🙂 When my Fiance and I picked out my engagement ring together, I never realized the trouble I’d have finding a band to fit with it. (Maybe I was just mesmerized by all the sparkly around me, I don’t know!) I absolutely LOVE how your wedding ring fits with your beautiful e-ring!! It looks as if it goes together–I do love that little space in between. Is it comfortable to wear? Comfort is a big thing for me as well because I’m not a ring person… I don’t want to FEEL the ring on my finger.

I have a halo e-ring (mostly halo, anyway, see pic). Does anyone have any ideas for a wedding band? I would like to wear both on my left hand!
I’ve thought about designing one with Jared, but I don’t know how much that could cost, or even what would work with this! Nothing will fit under the center diamond.

Mine are a match so I didn’t have that problem, just thought I’d show them anyway hee hee. However, I think a gap between halo and band looks lovely if there are two mismatched thin bands that sit flush beside the halo. Like maybe the halo, a small gap, then a tiny eternity ring sitting flush beside a plain thin band

Wow! Sorry these pics are HUGE! My E ring is a Neil Lane from Kays, but unfortunately, there isn’t a “matching” band. I decided to get creative and use a solitaire enhancer instead. I love the look and the uniqueness of the pair!

I knew I wouldn’t find anything to sit flush with my e-ring, but I found this band and thought the design mimics the split side/shank on my e-ring.

That looks stunning!!
Glad to see/hear how other bees are handling the situation, I’m currently researching ways to overcome this right now and still have a well-matched and balanced set. I adore my e-ring but oh my goodness, its going to be impossible to find the perfect wedding band to go with it!

@LoveMyJacks: I almost went with this same engagement ring. When I saw it at Kay’s it did have a matching wedding band. It sat flush to the ring but had a slight bump out to accomodate the not totally flat side of the engagement ring. Ultimately that was one reason I didn’t go with this ring. Plus my sister in law has this exact ring…she has the matching band with the bump outs…actually one on each side. I like how yours with the slight gaps looks! If I’d have thought of that I may have gone with this one. So pretty.
