Another One

My engagement band is really's between 1.5 and 1 millimeters, and I don't want the wedding band to be wider than my engagement band. That's slightly picky, I know, but I don't want the wedding band to overshadow my engagement ring in any way.

I was thinking something like this.....

I really like how the diamonds aren't the channel setting, they're each set up on their own prongs. But it's $300, and I can think of 1,000 other places to spend that money. My engagement ring is so gorgeous and I love it so much, I feel outrageously selfish in spending that much money on another ring for me. I mean, Ryan's happy with a bamboo ring that cost well under $100. Who am I to demand more money spent on my left hand?

I also saw a ring kind of like this at a jewelry store in town that I liked. This will give you a rough idea, but the ring I saw was much more delicate, had different shapes (I think a rectangle and then a circle) and had lots of smaller diamonds.

The ring in the store was 40% off and it brought it to $200 ish, but I wonder if I'd get tired of it in a few years.

I'm also looking at plain white gold bands, but I can't find any smaller than 2 mm, which is wider than what I want.

I'm going to keep looking, but I don't know if I'm OK with spending more money on my rings.

What does your wedding band look like?

  1. FH and I had this discussion several times before we came to our conclusions. Its definitely tough. We basically decided that we would both find rings we love and be less concerned with how much they were going to cost. Our thinking was that the the rings (and the photos) will be what last forever and things we will be wearing everyday. So we are going to budget and cut down on expenses elsewhere. Unfortunately female rings cost way more than the ones for guys.


Hearing from you all makes my day!
