My Fiance and I have started wedding band shopping and it’s a lot harder than I thought! I have a cushion cut solitaire diamond on a plain band and I’m finding that bands don’t fit along my engagement ring nicely. Anyone have any pictures or suggestions for bands to go with a solitaire setting? Thank you!

you can do pretty much anything with a solitaire! if you want the bands to sit flush, look for something with a slight indentation where it will line up with the solitaire.

Hi there! It might help if you had a pic of your ring, and what you want out of a wedding band? I have a cushion cut solitaire on a pave band, and i got a pave wedding band to go with it.
I am guessing that you say a band doesn’t fit next to your e-ring because the setting is so low that the band can’t sit flush? If that is the case you could either get a curved band like this:
or a twisty band like this:
or just rock the gap like this (stole this pic off the ‘bee)!

Follow up question about the curved bands. Say you don’t want to wear your diamond out, is it silly looking if you just wear the band or are they not meant to be worn alone?

I ended up getting a ring wrap/solitare enhancer to go with my solitare.
I don’t have the pics on this computer but you can check out my post here. http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/anyone-have-a-34-carat-solitaire#post-1954349

@Pupperoni: I think the curved ones are not meant to be worn alone, but the twisty ones probably are (probably not at all the right name for them… lol)

What about a Chevron Ring? It kind of is similar to a curved, but I see them worn alone more often. Or a filigree band. Something like this?

Just an FYI, I keep seeing people saying curved bands don’t look right alone, I rock mine all the time at work and it doesn’t look wierd at all.

I had the same problem because my setting is really low. I didn’t like the look of most curved bands so I decided to find low-profile bands. I think mine is almost exactly the one in the picture above (mine is from bluenile). I have a very small gap which doesn’t bother me.

here’s my ring

My ring isnt solitaire, but my ring sticks out – I just have a plain band (for now) and I think it looks fine, even with the small gap!

I have a solitaire, and instead of a traditional wedding band, we are just going to add an enhancer, and that will be my wedding band.

I have a solitaire but on a thick band. I’ve found that it’s not as easy to get a band as I hoped either!!! I find that I need bigger stones to compliment it, even though pave setting also seems to work, but Fiance doesn’y like pave.

I’ve been having the same problem. I really like the solitaire enhancer/wraps/whatever they’re called. I just can’t find one in my price range that’s nice T_T

Heres mine. I wanted to keep the traditional look that I love about my solitaire while adding something unexpected. I call it traditional yet unconventional. lol
