- Wedding: October 2011
Okay, so some of you may have seen my earlier post entitled “Anyone sick of their ring?” This sparked a lot of controversy and nasty comments, not relating to the true and original meaning of my post. I had posted that thread because I was thinking of “upgrading” my ring to something more intriquate because I don’t like the plain band. (my ring is a 1ct w.g. solitaire). It was also not the first ring my FI proposed with, because he proposed with a cz place holder that I still have. ANYWAY, back on topic.
So, after posting that I wasn’t changing my mind about wanting something different, but of course we weren’t going to upgrade right away. So I started looking at wedding bands to go with my current ring but wasn’t finding what I wanted. I wanted something unique with diamonds in it, that was a little antique-ish. I found one band that I loved, but it was way over our budget. So my FI got the idea of setting my current stone into a wedding set, so I would have a macthing band. I took the idea and we went to a few jewelers and started looking.
The first place we went to didn’t have anything that appealed to us so we went somewhere else. The second place was definitely worth going to. As I scoped out more wedding bands, my FI asked the head jeweler what sets they had in his price range. My FI looked at them and found one that he adored and decided to show me. I was AMAZED when he showed me because it is absolutely breathtaking, and not to mention A GREAT DEAL!
The set is a .36ct milgrain antique wedding set, but the catch, it’s only $700! and of course a fee for setting my current stone into it, but still a great price! It is gorgeous and I couldn’t love it anymore, and best thing yet, HE picked it out 😀 The reason we got such a great deal was because it was a discontinued style and then they were having a sale as well, plus an additional whatever $ off. It was fait, it had to be 🙂 So now, I won’t have to worry about “upgrading” because I will have a set that I LOVE, that we BOTH love! 😀
Since it was less than the bands we were looking at, I think that we ran into the perfect ring with the perfect price tag as well! Great deal! It will be a while before I get it because of it having to be sized, etc. But I can’t wait! I’m so excited!!!!!!!
But I thought I would share my excitement! And I will be sure to post once it arrives and everything is set into place! =)
