Ok I need some input....


My FF and I were working on the setting design. Because I have a cushion, and its on the larger side, and I want it set high up (not flush with the rest of the ring), I''m told I need to have a substantial setting. Either a basket or a "doughnut" underneath (like on the tiffany novo). I put together a Harry Winston setting, just without the halo. I have pave diamonds in the band, on the "doughnut" and on the prongs. Its sooo pretty. However, now I am finding out that with this type of setting, the wedding band would no fit flush with the e-ring. It would either be spaced, or I would need to get one that like indents, and locks to the e-ring. Im not nuts about that because then I wouldnt be able to wear my wedding band solo down the road if I wanted to.


What are your thoughts? Anyone else have a similar situation? What have you decided to do?

I can''t really help you b/c I know nothing about settings...at all. Hangout or Rocky Talky might be a good place to post this.


BUT, can I just say, I CANNOT wait to see that bad boy

I''ve thought about this before too, and I decided I would just wear my ering on my right hand if the set didn''t sit flush. I actually see a lot of people do this, but I understand how a lot of people wouldn''t want to do that. Could you try the band and ring on together to see if you don''t mind the gap? It may not look bad together

Embrace the gap. It is the HW way. It says "my ring is so blingalicious, that my w-band can't possibly sit flush with my e-ring."

Agreed. I also could be mistaken, but I thought that a pave band would eat into any other band that was pressed flush against it?

If the curved band only has to be curved on the "front" side and has pave all around you could just spin it around and wear the curve part on the inside of your hand?!?!?

Yeah my jeweler was saying something that would actually like indent, noticeably. Not just a slight curve like Ive see on some (I guess cause the diamond size). If I can get a curved on though, then I could rotate it when its solo and i would be less obvious

Hi NakedFinger,

I was participating in a past discussion about curved wedding bands. Maybe you''ll find it useful
