with my freaking wedding band. I bought a wedding band that I thought I loved in March, but it was pave set and my e ring is channel set so it looked really dumb. So I went into Zales and found a new band that I loved and exchanged it. Now I don’t think I like this band either. What is wrong with me? I can’t exchange it now, its too far past the exchange date. Should I just keep it and wait til after we are married to get a new one, or try to sell the one I have now and use the money for a new ring? Or should I just keep the band I have now cuz it doesnt look THAT bad with my ring? BUT in all honesty I dont think I will ever be 100% happy with what I choose cuz I am always looking at rings and finding things I like better. UGH I suck!!!
Heres my ring with my band that I have now.

I feel like my center stone gets lost with it, but I feel that way with every band that I have tried on…and let me tell you I have tried on hundreds. LOL. I think I may just like the look of my ring alone.
here it is alone

LOL, you are like me! I thought I loved my wedding band, but then after I had it for a few months, I decided I didn’t like it and it was too late to return. I ended up doing a TON of research for months, and choosing a ring from Moissanite & Co so that I didn’tfeel guilty about spending too much money on a second ring. I thought about selling the original ring, but I couldn’t bring myself to because I got married with it.
If you decide to sell your ring, do it before the wedding! that way you won’t have an emotional attachment to it like I do. If you really think you will be happy with a different ring, it will be worth the financial loss you’ll take on it.
Here is a suggestion to help you find a ring you might love: buy some cheap rings (like from Berricle), and wear them for a while to see what you think of them. If you find one that you think you’ll love, then try to find a real (as in gold & diamonds) version of it somewhere.
I think your set is really pretty. Can you tell us what’s bothering you about it? Maybe we can help suggest changes / modifications instead of getting rid of it.
EDIT: I see you answered that while I was writing. I think your center stone does not get lost! However, I personally like the look of a single wedding band. Have you tried that? Sometimes less can be more!

Maybe you should try just one thin band with diamonds in it. That way, your ering won’t get lost and it still matches. I am with you, I do not want to lose my diamond with any wedding band, enhancer or whatever I choose.

GORGEOUS set… thanks for sharing the pic.
In all honestly, I’d stick with the one you have. It really is stunning.
And I encourage you to adhere to the following advice…
STEP AWAY FROM THE JEWELLERY STORE CABINETS…
They are enticing to you because they are filled with sparkly frosting… this is what they are meant to do…
ATTRACT you into their stores… be dazzled by their presents (pun)
The best policy is just don’t go in there looking at E-Rings & W-Bands… there are 1000s if not millions of possibilities… and NEW Stuff added all the time.
Be happy with your Fiance / Hubby. Be happy with who you guys are, and the rings you’ve chosen as a symbol of your commitment to one another.
Future jewellery occasions with different options can include… Birthdays, Christmas, Valentines, Anniversaries, Baby Births etc
Don’t get stuck on this one thing (this one, that one, another one, etc)… IF you LOVE jewellery look to expand your horizons…

I don’t think that center stone is going to get lost in much of anything. My advice though, is that if you decide you want another band, get the CZ version from Berricle first. See if you like the porportions, and the way it looks with your e-ring, and the style. Then, once you’re satisfied, get the real thing exactly the same.

I vote one small band. It looks like you may have 2?

I don’t see anything wrong with the way the wedding band looks with it. I actually think it looks really good.

I’m sorry. When I read this title I could only think one thing.

I like the way it looks, don’t think it gets swallowed up at all.
A bunch of ladies at my job wear their bands and rings on separate hands. Are you opposed to that?
Post # 13
Thanks ladies. I am so wishy washy with everything. One minute I like something the next I hate it. Just my personality I guess. LOL. But I am gonna keep it I THINK. I just have to stay out of jewlrey stores I guess.

Keep it! In all honesty, your bands frame it and do not hide it at all! they bring it out more and I think your set is stunning! so beautiful.
