Often an engagement ring has a unique curved shape. The wedding band has to be specially made to fit flush with the engagement ring. Sometimes wedding bands are requested to fit either side of the curved ring. In this tutorial you will be shown how to make two matching bands also known as contour or shadow wedding bands for a curved engagement ring on both sides of the ring.
