I need to have some repairs done on my engagement ring, missing a couple prongs, center stone is crooked and a side stone is loose. I haven't worn it in a long time! While i'm at it i'd like to do something with my wedding band. I never really liked how they looked together and I don't want to make any major changes to my engagement ring. Does anyone have any suggestions on a wedding band style that might look better, less chunky, more smooth with my engagement ring? Thanks!

Beautiful ring! I see why you want to keep it the same. It sounds like there might be enough damage that it's worth resetting your engagement ring into something that looks the same from the top, but setting it a bit higher - that would give you more options for having a straight rather than curved band, with either no gap or a small gap depending on the height of the new setting.

I love a delicate eternity with a three stone - in general I think it looks balanced if you stay similar in width - say within .5mm - of whatever size shank you pick for the e-ring. E-w set baguettes would be lovely I think, but lots of different more delicate pave styles would be nice too. Or a plain high polish or matte platinum band, to let your engagement ring stand out.

I also prefer straight bands even if there is a gap. I think something like the Tiffany channel set band would work with the setting of your e-ring. They have different widths. If you have access to Tiffany, it is a good place to try them on even if you decide to buy somewhere less expensive.

I agree with this completely - I think a straight wedding band would work best!
