Ring help!! Need to find a matching band!

Recommended Posts

Thank you ladies so much for this post.  I'm having the exact same problem.  I have a very limited budget for our rings so custom is out.  I have a raised solitaire but nothing I've tried in diamonds sits flush either.  I was thinking of 2 plain white gold bands but am unsure how that would look.  I tried one on and it was the only ring to sit flush  Do you ladies have an opinion?

Do you have a picture? Or a pic of something like it?

Meeshie, sounds like you're having the same problem as me! Did you ever expect a raised solitaire to give you so many problems?!

 

I would love to see a picture of the plain bands you mentioned, with your ring!

She had it done somewhere in Vancouver, I'm not sure of the exact place.

I never expected that at all.  Once we've done shopping, I will definitely post my selection :)

I had my e rings custom designed. It was probably a little bit more expensive, but I thought it was really reasonable.  The expensive part is the darn high price of gold!

 

I had mine done at Vandenberg's in Winnipeg.  (http://www.vandenbergs.ca/) They were great. They did need my ring for a few weeks though to make the wax and then the rings themselves to make sure it fit perfectly. 

 

I actually just picked up my bands on the weekend, so I was "attempting" to take some photos.  For reference - my e-ring is the middle white and rose gold, It has the swirly bits.  I made the custom ring(s) [There are two, I lucked out!] to match the contours of my ering and they have a little chip diamond in them.  I wanted something small and with a low profile as well.  In my case the gold comes up around the diamond so the diamond itself is flush with the top, as I also wanted something that wouldn't be huge.

 

The top photo is what the goldsmith created on the computer.

 

The bottom photo is a picture I took on Saturday. When the rings are on my finger there is no gap, but if you look at the photo, there is a bit of a gap between my first band and the ering.

If you wanted more info on pricing etc. send me a private message :) Hope that helps!

Wow, pretty ring Avens. Very unique!

 

We ended up going with the band in first post. When I tried in one as it's "supposed" to be worn (ie: the band behind the e-ring) there was even less of a gap. PLUS it was on sale when we went back. With all the money Fi saved, he can get me that matching band a lot sooner. Hehe. ;-)
