I have a tiffany style, my wedding band has to sit under the low prong base or leave a gap. Stoned bands are taller so if you want it to fit close i’d think cathedral might work better. 🙂

I had a Tiffany style 6-prong round setting that I ended up changing to a cathedral setting because — guess what — nothing sat flush against it. Well, not nothing — the only thing that would sit flush against it was a plain band or a channel-set band, neither of which I wanted. So, if you want a pave or prong-set eternity band, I’d recommend a cathedral over a Tiffany style solitaire! Here’s my cathedral setting, with and without the band.

I have a cathedral that looks very similar to yours. only difference that I can see is the width of the shank. Mine is 4mm wide.

@Paiger8:  I’m with you — I preferred the look of the Tiffany style setting over the cathedral (and still do), but the setting really takes a back seat the the stone, especially once you pair it with a band. I did find that when I was trying to pair a band with the Tiffany style setting I was limited to a band that was curved/notched, plain, or channel-set — everything else left a noticeable gap. But, if those styles are OK with you then you should be fine! You can’t really go wrong – both are very classic styles and I’m sure you’ll find something you like with either option!

I had a choice between a thicker, heavier, 18k cathedral setting (it came with my upgraded diamond) or to keep my really thin, 14k, tiffany style setting and I just had to stay with my original! I have a princess cut but after a little searching I fianlly found a band that sits flush.

I have a tiffany solitaire and (in 3 months) will have a channel set eternity band with it, the gap is practically imperceivable in real life, this picture is just very upclose. I didn’t try it on with a prong setting eternity band though (as somebody mentioned above), the ring below is literally the exact one I wanted, I went into the store and asked for exactly it, so I didn’t try it with anything else…the channel setting is very low profile too so even w/ a tiffany setting it doesn’t make it up to the diamond really, if that makes any sense…

Tiffany 6 prong with bezel 3/4 eternity. There is a teensy gap, but it works well for me.
