I’m getting married in 25 days and I am regretting my wedding band choice.
I don’t think it sits nicely with my engagement ring. It’s too wide. I love it on its own, but just not with my e-ring. It’s just not what I expected. I don’t know what to do!!! It is already engraved so I can’t return it. I try and convince myself that I like it everyday, but it’s just not working.
Is it worth it to get it reset? How much do you think that will cost me? Is it possible for them to use the same diamonds and the same gold, just change the setting? Would that be expensive? I really don’t have a lot of money to spend on this.
Please help me! Take a look at the pictures and tell me what you think. They are a little blurry, sorry.

I think they are very nice together. IMO– I think they would charge an arm and a leg to reconfigure it.

hmm, maybe you could get another wedding band similar but maybe a bit smaller to sit on top of the e-ring, so that you have a band on each size. It maybe cheaper than having it reset. Im in the middle of a wedding band crisis and I went to a jeweler to see what could be done, and its just cheaper for me to buy a ring from a chain store.

I really like them together the way the are! I think it would be expensive to change it…

No matter what you choose, wait until after the wedding. That way, you have a better idea about your finances, and you’re thinking with a clear head. Good luck! I think it looks beautiful as it is.

I like them and I think they fit well togethor.

I like the rings. Since you like the band on its own, have you considered wearing the wedding band on your left ring finger and your engagement ring on your right hand?

They look nice! I picked my band to go with my e-ring, but I tend to mostly just wear my wedding band. You might find you do that after the wedding.

I think they look nice together. What if you keep that set for the next year and for your one year anniversary get a new band or a second band that you feel more comfortable with.

I have considered wearing them separately, but I’m not sure I am completely happy with that idea.
What do you think of the 7 diamonds? When my fingers are closed, they go all the way across, but when they’re open you can see they don’t go all the way around the ring. So why 7? Because I’m getting married in July? It’s such an odd number. I never really thought of that before I chose it.
You don’t think it looks awkward that the band is much wider than the ring? Are diamond bands commonplace? I feel like I should have just got a plain gold band with really small diamonds for detail, but not so much.
I hate regrets!!! Ugh…

I think this is a case pre-wedding stress causing a wedding freak out! Really your rings look beautiful together. But if you really aren’t 100% happy I do suggest you take Melissa’s advice and wait until after the wedding when things have calmed down before you come up with a solution.

I’m the type to get regrets too so this is just a suggestion that I hope will help.
Your wedding ring combo is similar to mine. I picked out a thinner fashion ring so it was cheaper than a regular thick wedding band. The thinness of my band made my e-ring pop better. So I have a princes cut ering with a very thin diamond band.
I would ask the jeweler if he could do an exchange. Not being able to return because of engraving doesn’t make sense to me. The metal band can easily be resized so why couldn’t it be remolded to remove the engraving. I think you could just offer to pay a small fee for that or if you are asking for an exchange, they should be able to work something out. I think they just didn’t want to lose the profit they already made on the band. If you did an exchange, and even paid a small fee on top for the trouble, maybe you could get a thinner band that works without forking out extra money? Just a thought.

What does your thinner band look like? Diamonds all around?
The jeweler never said they couldn’t do an exchange; I am just assuming that because of the engraving… but that is a good point! Maybe I will look into it.
But most are right, I am probably just stressing myself out.
Thanks for all the responses so far, by the way!

@karina: I have two wedding bands that go on either side of my e-ring, and they have 7 diamonds in them. I LOVE them and I picked them because the diamonds stopped exactly where I wanted them to. I’m sure you’re just stressing because of your upcoming wedding 🙂 Good luck!

I love them together! I think it would be very very expensive to change it, any type of custom jewelry work is costly.
