Pretty ring!  

I don’t think it would be crazy to slightly alter your setting.  Maybe they could make a small notch at the base of the basket that would accommodate a wedding band??

That’s a beautiful ring.  Mine is somewhat similar, but square:

I really want a straight wedding band, but haven’t tried any on to see how they look yet.  Since yours juts out even more, you probably should look at bands that will go flush around it.  Might have to get it custom made?

I went with a straight band, and it’s not flush but you can have your ering altered so that a band will sit flush.  What they do is size the ring up a few sizes, then add almost a “liner” of plain gold inside the top.  This leaves a flat section under the basket to accomodate a wedding band, but it does raise your basket up a fair bit.

You could also consider wearing your Engagement Ring on your right hand? That way you could have your eternity ring on your left hand?

If I were you, I would change the setting slightly to the basket isn’t as low (or maybe angles down from the halo to the band instead of a straight angle?  If you are looking at your ring upsided down (like in your second pic) see if you can change it from the first shape to the second:

I hope that makes sense… haha

My basket curves out only slightly. So I was able to find one tht matched the curve, and doesn’t look super weird by itself. These were snapped quickly with a cell phone before she was put into lay away. One day I’ll get a better picture!

What about a very low-profile band? My grandma had a very low profile engraved/carved wedding ring with what is now my engagement ring. It slid partially underneath the ring itself sothere wasn’t really a gap.

Mine isn’t a halo, but the I do have a basket type setting holding my center stone.  Like yours it bumps out and there is no way for a straight band to sit flush against it.  We had a band made to accommodate for the basket bump. I am very happy with how it came out.  Another idea for you to use for ideas!

Just a note to think about, having a raised basket doesn’t exactly solve the problem either (if you go the altering your ring route) I have a raised basket and i’m still having trouble finding a ring to go with it because the wedding ring looks funky sitting under my halo… I don’t have pictures with a band but here’s some side pictures:

When I put a band on the raised part of my engagement ring makes the wedding band look really funky… I’ll try to get pictures next time I try on rings…

I can’t seem to find one to go with my ring either. 🙁

I just got two to avoid the issue, lol. We’ll solder the simple plain one that’s notched out right to the e-ring, then I have a thicker straight band that can be worn stand-alone. Depending on what style you’re looking for, that could be an option.
