Did your fiance pick the ring/center stones all by himself?

KayKPhillips:  Well if hes practical I don’t think thats rude at all! Some men get super offended when it comes to changing up the ring they picked. My husband is like yours and very practical and just wants me to be happy with what I have. There are a lot of people who just wear the ering and no band at all.

Can the shop make you a custom band? Will they do a refund? Would you be ok with no band if your center stone is bigger?

I don’t think it’s selfish to ask for a stone upgrade. I mean, if you already put that money in for a band to start with, you guys are clearly OK with spending that money on that, so I don’t see why that would be a problem. I would shop around a little bit more, maybe you’ll get lucky and find something you like. If you don’t and you run out of time, maybe you can get a regular band just for the wedding and then keep looking for one you like better, or go for the upgrade. A custom made band is always a choice, if your budget allows. Decisions, decisions!!! Good luck!!

You stated that “the jeweler is happy to do a refund/exchange for another band“.  Did your jeweler say that you could use the refund/exchange for an upgraded diamond?  Because, you might not be able to use it on a diamond.  It could be specific to purchasing a band only! 

What I’m saying is, before you get your hopes up on a bigger stone, get clarification on how you can use the return.
