i’m sure I’m not the only one who’s had some ring envy. Mine is mainly centred around being stupid enough to not do much research into options like white sapphires & moissy. We couldn’t afford a large diamond so the centre my e-ring is a cluster of four smaller diamonds. It looks pretty from the top but kind of lacks oomph – I think my main problem is when you look at it from the side, the top level just looks kinda flat. My mother’s lack of interest/excitement more or less said it all.
BUT I’m home sick, feeling kinda crappy and seeing all the beautiful wedding sets on here made me cheeky so I decided to try my wedding ring on again 😛 (we bought all three at the same time and FH keeps them in his drawer! yikes).
I FELL IN LOVE WITH IT AGAIN! The e-ring is pretty on its own but somehow the combination of the two just make me swoon 🙂 No more ring regret!
(thanks to weight loss my fingers have a ton of excess skin. The rings fit fine, but it can be “fun” getting them on & off, hence my finger is kinda pink!)
Being sneaky is fun 🙂

@goingtotherooftopoflove: Your rings have plenty of oomph. Bigger isn’t always better. Your rings are genuine diamonds. Those diamonds are a billion (!) years old, one of a kind, natural from the earth, unique, valuable. Your setting has really lovely details and dimension too…
Glad you are over your ring regret!
Feel better soon.

@gemgirl6: I said that to myself at time we got it. And honestly, we could have tried other jewelers but once I’d tried this one on (knowing at the time a big center stone was out of the question) I fell in love with it, FH fell in love with it and every other ring I tried on just didn’t capture my attention. Seeing the two together today brought back memories of that special night 🙂 I absolutely adore the vintagey setting and the intricate detail and it really started off my whole theming for our wedding, including my dress. And in a way it’s nice to not do what everyone else has done 🙂

It’s so pretty!!!! I love the metal work especially. If you ever want to upgrade, it looks like you could put one large diamond in place of the quad diamonds… But that’s not necessary for the beauty of that piece of jewellery. I occasionally have ring envy too, which is CRAZY because I picked out my ring.
You see, I picked it out without reading any of the forums so that it would be completely MY taste, but now I wonder if I should have gone with a bigger stone! It is ridiculous because i picked it to be a nice proportionate size on my short size 6 fingers. I undershot his budget by over 2k. My ring is gorgeous, and suits us, and I kinda blame the wedding industry (And the internet! Damn you internet with your bluenile diamond search!) for the whole second guessing dilemma.
Your rings look lovely together! Great choice. Timeless. (And with the band, extra diamonds!:D)

Please don’t have ring regret! Your ring is beautiful, I have a quad center too and I LOVE IT. I knew the instant that I saw my ring that it was MINE. It glittered like no other. Quad’s are not everyone’s taste but they are so beautiful to me. Your setting is goooooorgeous! Plenty of “oomph” 🙂 I’d rock the heck out of it!

@Fizzy8: I like your point that you picked out your ring without the influence of others. I did too. I didn’t find the bees unTil after I was engaged. I don’t know if seeing All these rings would have been helpful as I now have some styles I equAlly love.
OP I love the filigree detail and milgrain on your set. The rings look great together! And it does look like you could reset one diamond in there. Nice option for down the road. 😉

I felt the same way about my e-ring too. I don’t think I ever really fell in love with it until I paired it with my wedding band. Something about the pairing I guess!
I love your set. It looks so elegant!
