Hi @Splodge2003: GORGEOUS Ring !!

I just don’t get it. The dimaond is the perfect size, I love the channel setting, and it’s not too high. I don’t like the thickness and weight of the band so much, but I suppose for something I will wear every day I’ll take weight and size over something very delicate.
It’s almost like it’s too much for me, and I could only ever wear it on special occasions.
I think this is within the grounds of a totally normal reaction… this is very much how I felt when Mr TTR gave me my ERing.
That it was just too much for me. Too special.
Even tho it was exactly what I wanted… chose, etc.
I think it was just the newness of it all.
Lol, I even did wear it in the beginning (well a week or two) ONLY when I was going out of the house… It just seemed “too pretty / too wonderful” to wear all the time
In reality, I was just overcome with emotions. The amazing feeling of being engaged, the awe of this incredible ring. Tons of happiness etc.
I had worn the Bridal Set from my first marriage 24/7 x 365 without issue… I think I was feeling just overwhelmed by my new state of being… more than anything else.
As for size & weight… ya that is pretty normal too. If you haven’t worn a ring on that finger, then it is going to take some getting used to. AND your brain needs about 7 to 10 days to figure out the parameter around your ring finger so you aren’t knocking your ring into every little thing…
I have a very wide band in my ERing, and a good load of Diamonds (all but the Feature Diamond is channel set). It was HEAVY when I first wore it… but now I am lost without it… empty finger syndrom (the exact reason that I own 2 WBands… a Sparkly & a Plain so I never have to go without no matter what I am doing)
I am happy that I got a sturdy ring… it suits my style. A tiny thin band and that baby would not have stood up well to the test of time at Chez TTR
Now the Platinum vs Gold Debate… well that is a personal choice… I am not a fan of Platinum, I went with White Gold.
But as for everything else, I think you just got try it out…
How long can you hold onto the Ring before you have to return it ?
