Hey Bees! So, I did something rather foolish over the weekend: I fell in love.
Let me explain…
I am very fond of my e-ring, however it wasn’t exactly what I wanted. We got engaged last year while living on my measely income, so the ring we ended up getting was one that we found for a very low price at a local jeweler’s. I love it very much and think it’s incredibly beautiful, however the longer I’ve been on Wedding Bee and the more I’ve thought about it, the more I’ve come to realize it’s not really what I always pictured for an engagement ring.
Lately I’ve been drooling over art deco/vintage-style rings online, and over the weekend Fiance and I stopped in at Littman Jewelers to look at wedding bands for him. While we were waiting, I looked into the e-ring display case and saw this:
Gahhhhh… everything about it is perfect. At my FI’s urging, I tried it on and I swear both us and sales associate GASPED because it looked like I was born with it on my finger. I’ve never been very into diamonds and I don’t really know the first thing about the 4 C’s, but let me tell you: I love this ring!
The only problem, of course, is the price – even at 50% off, it’s WAY out of our budget 🙁 But I figured y’all would be able to commiserate with me/appreciate the beauty of this e-ring. We discussed possibly saving up and trying to find something similar/waiting to see if the price comes down any more (doubtful), but I do feel bad that I already have a ring. Bah.
