First and foremost Happy New Year!
I need your opinions, as I am not sure what exactly I should do…
Here is my current set. I absolutely love it, and it fits me perfectly. The only thing is the band of my e-ring is totally scratched up, if I don’t figure out something soon it will get vary damaged.
I have recently been wearing a silver dummy band I made as a spacer:can’t really say i totally love it, maybe it’s too thick.
I also have realized that I really love having a gap (it gives the rings air to breath), so another chevron band that is plain could work i guess, but it would get rid of the gap and I would have to get it custom made, which drives up the cost.
I was also considering doing a plain 1.5 mm rose gold spacer band, so it would more or less blend into my skintone (so I could sort of have my gap), but this jewelry store saleswoman said it was tasteless and tacky. I’m stubborn, so that’s still one of the choices, but i’m not sure.
This is where you girls come in! I would love your feedback!! Any other kinds of bands that are uniquely shaped that would work well with my set?

I’d say a chevron band or a flat band in rose gold that is as small as possible, way less than 1.7mm. Seeing how amazing your rings look together, the flat band between does nothing for me personally, but I hate gaps. They make me OCD. There’s quite a few on etsy, or you could have a local jeweler make one for cheap too.http://www.etsy.com/market/chevron_ring

I’m not a big fan of gaps so I voted for a plain chevron band, I think it’d look nice 🙂

@lusik303: Hmm I think the gap looks better than filling it with any ring. Maybe ask your jeweler if he can solder the backs of the two rings to keep the gap?? Or else just solder them without a gap and it will stop the scratching 🙂

@wrkbrk: Soldering the set sounds enticing but i also love wearing the ring on its own.
Also, does anyone think the rose gold is tacky? It was nice the the jewelry salewoman was honest, but her unwavering opinion took me by surprise.
I have recently fallen absolutely in love with rose gold!!

I just love your chevron band!!!! I would honestly have it soldered (I had my contour band soldered too) and it will not damage your e-ring anymore. I suggest you get a rose gold band to wear alone since you love the metal (me tooooo!) and since you often just sport a band.
Here is my soldered band:

@lusik303: Oh, I see what you mean – I love the look of your band just on its own too.
A very small custom chevron band that follows the exact shape of your wedding band might work, although all rings do rub and grind against one another (sounds rude doesn’t it? lol)
I do love rose gold and have a ring with both white gold and rose gold in it now, but with your particular set, I just don’t see it enhancing your look. I would really be afraid it would take away from the beauty of your rings. White gold (imo) is the way to go.

I definitely would go towards the chevron band! I think that would look amazing 🙂

I don’t know if you have made any decisions yet but have you considered switching the two around wearing the Chevron on the outer most part and the solitaire closer to finger base sort of like I have done with my heart wrapped in band? There is no rubbing and u still get the gap

lusik303 : such an old post, I wonder what you end up doing!? I love the “space” to let them breathe too lol I’ve been doing the same with my set and wondering how do I get it to have a permanent space like that without me always adjusting it!
