On Friday, my FI and I will be going to pick out our wedding bands (!!!!) and I wanted to do some research online to see what would go with mine. When I looked inside the shank of my ring, I discovered that there’s no name indicating the brand. I’ve searched all over the internet with multiple keywords, anything that would bring up my ring but nothing.
I’m going to the jeweler where we got it so I guess I can find out then but it really bothers me not knowing who made my ring or anything about it. I took some pictures of it so hopefully someone will be able to help!!! Thank you, any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

I think a lot of jewelry isn’t necessarily a “brand”. Hopefully your jeweler has more info for you.

If he bought it from like…a privately owned jeweler, it’s very possible that the jeweler made it himself! It is very beautiful, quite a work of art!

I agree with Mew, it doesn’t have to have a “brand”. Not all rings do. I wouldn’t worry about matching the brand of the wedding band to the e-ring, just find one you love 🙂

Maybe from Eternity Diamonds? http://www.eternitydiamonds.com/ They make their rings in-house. They do custom work to, so just because it’s not on their website doesn’t mean they didn’t make it.
Why don’t you just ask your fiance what store he got it at?

Mine is engraved with the initials/insignia of the designer. does yours have any engraving besides the metal stamp?

Thank you so much ladies for your helps 🙂 I agree with @sapphiresun and @jamiel17, it doesn’t have to be the exact match and it’ll be whatever I really love 🙂
I guess I just wanted to get an idea because my ring is a little different than most and it just really bothered me that I couldn’t find anything close. I mean, I found some split shank styles similar but my halo is so different. I’ve been into jewelry stores to “play dressup” with the wedding bands and because of the curve, we may have to have something made so I was just wondering if it had a set.
@abbyful and @mewcakes: We bought it together at a store that’s owned by a close family friend and I believe it is a privately owned store. I had never thought about it being custom made. We go in a couple days back to the same store so I am definitely going to find out more.
@daydreamwanderer: That’s what I was looking for. There’s no stamp, no initials or name, nothing. Nothing that would indentify where this ring came from, except the flower structure design on the underbelly (I think thats what it’s called?).
I also really wanting to see some wedding sets because I don’t know that I’m happy with my engagement ring and I wanted to have an idea before we went in together. I love the halo but I don’t know that I like the split shank. This is actually my second ring because my 1st was a defective piece (a diamond was falling out every couple weeks and they never could get my center stone stable) and after 6 months of trying to fix it and waiting on a new one to be made, the owner gave me this instead as it’s so similar to what I did have. I was never sure about the 1st because I chose it to add stones to it but when it didn’t work out, I was stuck with it and not sure.
Now it’s been 1 yr and 10 months since we got engaged and with buying wedding bands, I am even more hesitant. When I told my FI about getting a new ring after the old one couldn’t be fixed, I asked him about picking out a completely new style and he said absolutely not.
How do I tell my FI and how do I handle this? What should I do? I don’t want to upset him but I’m just not completely happy. I love my ring because it is beautiful and we picked it out together (well, at this point the style), especially the halo but at the same time, I’m really unsure about it 🙁
