- Wedding: February 2012
So, long story short, I am currently wearing a temporary wedding set. DH and I got engaged quickly and amidst a storm of family and personal turmoil, which, if you care to know more, you can read a bit about ithere: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/feeling-betrayed .
Recently DH and I have started talking about getting something that we both like a bit more, and that doesn’t have all the history and ugly connotations this one does.
Neither DH nor I are terribly traditional people, he’s a photographer/artist, and I’m very into writing. We both embrace creativity and art in every aspect from our skin (tattoos) to our home. So neither one of us wanted anything traditional at all.
So I started scouring Etsy for ideas of what I want. And I absolutely fell in love.
So I’m absolutely enamored with this ring, but it’s no longer available.
I found a similar ring though:
I would get either of these in 14k white gold.
Here’s the thing: I intend for this to be the only time I ever get an engagement ring. I can’t find anything that I like more than these two. But neither of them are expensive AT ALL.
My question to you bees is: am I shortchanging myself by getting a ring that ison the lower end of the price spectrum? Or should I go with my heart and get one of the rings that I am absolutely drooling over?
In case anyone is wonderintg the links to the rings are here:
P.S. SOOOOOO sorry for the giant pics! I ahven’t mastered the art of the resize yet. 🙂
