custom wedding band?

Recommended Posts

So I went to look for a wedding band the other day, just to get some ideas, and when I was talking to the jeweler, he said that I would be better of getting a custom made wedding band. My ERing is a 3 stone princess cut; so all the bands that I tried on left a gap between the band and my ering. He said that they could make one so it fits in perfectly (leaving no gap). I guess they take a molding of the side of your ering, and then shape one side of the wedding band to match it perfectly. He had one on hand that he had just done, and it looked really good. Has anyone done this?

I had a different ring design. But my wedding band is custom done to fit my e-ring. I love the fact that they fit together perfectly. I considered (to save money) not having the custom ring done. I'm glad we decided to do the custom band. The gaps between the e-ring and band would have driven me crazy.

Almost all of my friends have had this done. My diamond in my E-ring is an oval (it was my grandmother's) so if I decide to get a band I will have to do this as well. I think you'll be really happy you did the custom route!

I have an old antique ring that was my great grandmothers. The setting is so unique and large there is no way a traditional wedding band will work. I debated forever on what to do, but finally decided to do a custom band. The jewler is making it for me this saturday and i'm SO excited. basically, he's making it out of wax first so I can see exactly how it fits to make sure i approve :) then they use the wax to mold the actual ring. I am THRILLED with this because i thought there was no logical solution. I'll post some pics as soon as I get my ring so you can see :) here is the e-ring to give u an idea:

My engagement ring and wedding ring were purchased as a set, so they fit together beautifully. However, looking at them you wouldn't know that - they could totally be worn separately. The band has a little bevel edge that slips into a groove on the e-ring so they stay together and don't move around (band is channel-set diamonds, so it keeps them upright) and they sit tightly together so you don't have that gap you talk about. The ring designer is a friend of my fiance, so he told him upfront that was a concern of mine.

Mine was the same...i have a cushion cut with pave around and everything left a gap so I got 2 bands cutom made-one on top, one on bottom-and I LOVE it. The jeweler did a great job and I saved a lot of $$.

I would definitely recommend a custom made ring!

My e-ring is a 3 stone and i decided to have one custom made. It was a really cool experience. Like Josie, I met with the artist, he designed a sample and made a wax casting, I approved it, then the jeweler made the ring. I kinda wanted to kepp the wax casting because it was purple and looked funky with my e-ring :) I definitely recommend the custom band because no one else will have one like it!

I would definitely get a custom band made. I also had a custom band made. None of the bands in any store I went in would fit my E ring and like a couple of the other girls. The jeweler made a wax of what the band would look like so I could see what it would realistically look like with my E ring and then once I approved the design the jeweler went ahead and made the band. What I also liked is the jeweler found out the clarity of my E ring so he could match the diamonds in the band to the diamonds in my E ring. That way, my E ring didn't have one color diamonds and my band have another color, KWIM? A little more expensive for my husband but hey, I'm worth it. LOL

I got a custom band made because otherwise i would of had a gap too. I had a princess cut center stone and than 2 heart stones on each side that would get smaller. Here's a pic, the rings are close together but you can kinda see how the band stones go up a little so they will fit good against the e-ring.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
