Nope. I hate gaps. My ering was so hard to find a band to fit with it. Its a pear solitaire that’s set really low. I finally found one that I loved beyond words. Its curved so it fits perfectly with the diamond. Now I just can’t wait until I can get them fused together.

The gap bothered the heck out of me… but I found a straight band and it sits very close to the Ering. It doesn’t look gappy to me now even though its not right up against all points of the ering.

@Ahowe07:  I would! Gaps don’t bother me in the slightest, although I don’t really have one:

 

I like when you can tell they are two separate rings. Now, my SO haaaaaaaates gaps so to each their own!!

I would, sure. But like a PP said, it’s on a ring by ring basis. Some gaps look really nice, and others, I’m not a fan of. My set has no gap whatever. They were made to fit side by side with a little “keyhole” so the bottom of the diamond was still visible. Sorry the photos are massive, they’re pretty old.

I personally like the flush look better for myself. I think it looks lovely with some sets with the gap but I didn’t like it on me when we were looking. I had a custom enhancer wrap made to sit flush with my e-ring

I’m a purist and for some reason I really, really, REALLY don’t like the look of those curved wedding bands to fit with the e-ring.  What if you want to stop wearing your ering after 10, 15 or 20 years?  Then you have a curved band.  For a lot of people it’s not a big deal but for me it’s just one of those things that would nag me to death.  I guess I just don’t like the idea of the band having to look a certain way because the e-ring is shaped a certain way.  Wedding bands should get priority and first dibs – they shouldn’t have to bend for an e-ring.  I know…I sound like a total whack.

I don’t like “gaps” either but I have to suck it up and deal with it since I’m so ridiculously anti-curve band.  

That’s my long-winded tantrum on flush rings.

Not a fan of gaps at all. My wedding band is a contour band. I love that it’s curved.

Nope, not a chance. That’s why I picked an e-ring that a straight band would sit flush against. 

My wedding band is an heirloom and about a half size too big… still debating on whether or not I want to get it resized.

There was no way I could get a straight band to sit flush with my e-ring and I really didn’t want a curved band. Turns out that I actually don’t mind the gap at all.

I am so torn on the whole gap no gap dilemma! I love it with some rings and not with others. I opted to to a slight contour for mine due to the fact that we were working with diamonds given to us from the family to design the band and was wondering what you gals think. I was afraid it didn’t look like they matched enough and that the contour would help them look better as a set,  but I also kind of like the mismatched look… I guess I’m just indecisive. Story of my life! Loving all your pics you really have some beatifil rings. Hope my photos aren’t too large Im a newbie
