    Hi girls,

    I am on the hunt for a wedding ring but I am having a great deal of trouble finding one that I like as I don't want a gap between my rings.

    I have uploaded some pics of my e-ring (apologies for the picture quality, that's the iPhone camara for you )

    I want either a princess cut diamond band or just a plain platinum band.

    Anyone know where I can find ring that they will customise to fit my e-ring?

    I would be grateful if you could upload some pictures so I can see what your rings look like together.

    Ok, pics..... :)

    This is the side of the ring so you can see I have prongs which stop the rings from sitting flush.

    This is the top of the ring, princess cut diamonds. 1 large stone, 1 smaller stone either side and then 2 smaller stones either side of that

      I have a similar-ish setting and haven't had any luck with the e-ring either. You should check your local jewelers, most of them do custom work.
      I've researched some local jewelers and reviews of their custom work and have it narrowed down to 2. I'm going to see both of them and see what they can come up with.
      I'd love to see some pics too! Good luck...8 )

          I'm also having a band custom made. I'm using a jewler that was recommended to me and i'm just doing a custom platinum band to fit my e-ring which I will post a pic of below. Its costing me $500.....not bad!

            I have a similar ring with the same problem about wanting it to be flushed. The jeweler said that he would have to make a curved ring for me . Here are some of my ideas when we go make it.

            I was also thinking of this one but may not work.

                  i went to corbo jewelers- in NJ they have a few locations and are well established. I have a pear shaped diamond with channel setting in platinum and the center stone wasn't raised very high. They are making a custom ring in platinum with channel setting diamonds that will match perfectly to the size and weight of my e-rings. I dropped my ring off for a few hours - they take a wax mold and then cast and shape what your band would look like from that mold (that takes a few weeks) once that was done I went back to the jeweler, tried on the wax mold with my e ring to make sure that I loved it and then they sent it out to be made. it actually came in today so I am going to see the real thing tomorrow!! I would highly suggest it however- I am sure the results will be amazing

                    Same thing for me too...

                    I made a joke to the jewelry store clerk one day that my ring (with no matching wedding band) was made for the "fiance who doesn't want to follow through with the marriage"...LOL...of course she didn't find it funny but I was only joking!!

                    I have decided to go with a regular channel band that lines up fairly well with the smaller diamonds that are on each side of the larger one...but there is still a bit of a gap. I did find a claw band that butted up against it better but I really didn't want a claw. The jeweler also told me they could niche out a bit of my e-ring at the bottom to make something snug up against it...but I just don't want to comprimise the e-ring or the band in case I want to wear them seperately for whatever reason.

                    I'm settling...and I'm totally ok with it :)
