- Wedding: September 2013
(the two fit snug together, they just look a bit separate in the picture because of the ring guard)
My FI and I spontaneously bought my wedding band when we were outlet shopping and even though I LOVE it, some part of me is worried that I should have kept looking longer. I wore the band around the house for a few days and I REALLY do love how it looks a lot and so does my FI. But I’m not the type to buy something so expensive without thoroughly researching if the price is a good value. This is something I bought spontaneously and that has me a bit worried. The wedding band is DEFINITELY under the budget that we set for my band, and I love that aspect a lot too…but is it worth the cost I paid? I have no idea. The band cost me $450 plus a $50 warranty, and in-store the “appraisal” said it’s worth $2200 (which sounds a bit absurd to me but I don’t understand the wacky appraisal system around diamonds).
So my questions:
1) How do the bees here feel about ULTRA Diamond? I’veread about some people out there with bad experiences but I feel like it’s customers who have a bad experience are more likely to write a review…
2) Would you get it appraised elsewhere? Even if the cost of that appraisal was $45?
3) Am I just being absurd and since I love how it looks I should just relax?
