    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?

        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. ;-)
