Hello Lovely Ladies
I have still been going back and forth about the ring I want as my wedding band. I still have 1 year and 2 weeks till our wedding so I am still waiting to make the final purchase.
Anyway, I have fallen in love with Etsy Seller, Pompi3. There are two rings I love for under $400!
Option A – 1/2CT Vintage Diamond Wedding Antique Filigree Hand Engraved Ring 14K White Gold – $359.00
Reason I like it – More diamonds for my buck. I like the vintage etching.
Option B – 1/3CT Diamond Vintage Guard Wedding Ring Women’s Anniversary Band 14 Karat White Gold Antique Hand Engraved Unique Ring – $299.99
Reason I like it – I like the setting, It matches my E-ring almost completely.
My engagement ring – Natural AAA Grade Blue Sapphire, 0.3CT Center, 0.2 CT Sides
Which do you ladies think?

@Sapphire-Dreamer: I think option B is too much like an engagement ring, and would compete with your engagement ring.

Assuming you’re going to wear them together, I like the first one… I think since it is more uniform, it will enhance your e-ring more rather than take away the attention 🙂

I love the first one! It’s beautiful. I think it would look better with your engagement ring.

I like option 1- option 2 will look to much like your e-ring!

@Sapphire-Dreamer: Whoa those are excellent prices! I like the first one. I would worry that the stones wouldn’t like up correctly/look right if you get another 3 stone for your band!

@Sapphire-Dreamer: I think they’re both equally pretty but I have a question. Do you know the exact dimensions of the rings and have you tried on similar styles before? The first ring we bought was from Amazon and was similar to the first picture. I fell in love with the scrollwork on the sides. However, I didn’t realize how big the ring was (to accomodate the design details) and it scratched the heck out of my fingers and we had to return it. Just something to think about because your e-ring looks so polished and comfy, wouldn’t want to ruin it with a scratchy band.

@Aquaria: Thank you for the interesting question. Here is the answers I have.
The width of my e-ring is 2mm.
The width of the band for Option A (The one I am leaning towards) is 2.2mm.
I honestly haven’t thought about the scratches it may cause. I tried on a band similar is carot size and detail at a chain store and adored the sparkle.

@mrspinesol: <= This. I thought the second photo was of your engagement ring. Stick with the top option, for now. If you’re anything like me (and a number of other ‘bees) you’ll change your mind between now and then…

Love #1! As for Pomp3ii, I have enjoyed their service. I did purchase a ring with diamonds with such poor clarity that the stones did not even sparkle. I paid $115 for a clarity upgrade and was happy with their work.
So heads up, please pay for a stone quality upgrade!!! It’s so worth it!! 😉
