Good morning Bees! I am new to the board and am having a GREAT time reading about everyone’s rings! I wanted to share mine as well because I love it. I have been engaged since New Year’s Eve. My fiance and I went ring shopping together and I chose the setting and my fiance chose the center stone afterwards when I was not with him. That was I got what I wanted and a surprise! I hope you all enjoy looking! Apologies in advance for the large pictures…
I was also curious to hear your opinions about whether I should get one wedding band or two. There is a band that matches the ring exactly which is definitely what I am getting. However, they make the ring to fit your center stone so the “model ring” had 5 larger diamonds in the band on each side and mine has 8 smaller. The wedding band matches the larger stones. I was thinking about getting two of the smaller ones to match my ring exactly. Thanks ladies!

I have no opinion on the wedding bands, but your ring is gorgeous!

I think the 2 smaller bands would look really elegant! I love the symmetry of two bands.

@Gingersnap: I agree.
Either way, your ring is simply gorgeous!!!

Congratulations and welcome to the bee, girl! Your ring is beyond stunning!!! My personal preference is for one band, but I’m a little more traditional. I really think you cannot go wrong.

Thank you everyone for your compliments and opinions! I was actually lucky enough to find a store that had two smaller rings in stock and I tried them on. Even my mom, who loves big sparkly jewelry, thought it was too much. It just didn’t look “right” for some reason. I should’ve taken a picture! I put on a wider band and it looked much more like a wedding set. I am really excited to have that decision made! 🙂

Oh Good! I would have said to go with one larger band. Lovely ring!
