FI and I were going crazy with cabin fever today so we decided that we would finally go look at some wedding bands to get an idea of what would work for my ring and what I would like. Well I have come to the conclusion it is a damn good thing FI picked out my e-ring on his own without me there. We went to three different jewelry stores and I could not find a single band that I liked at all, it was really hard to find one that went well with my e-ring and the ones that looked good with it, I didn’t like. I feel like I’m being too picky but I want to love my band as much, if not more than my e-ring. Thank the goodness we have 2 years to find something that I love because we can’t afford a custom one 🙁 Ugh, sorry for the vent it was just very frustrating!!
For reference here is the top and side view of my ring, the side view is what is giving me the most trouble because most bands cover it up 🙁

@alyssaC: Gorgeous ring! Good luck on the wedding band hunt. Do you have any pictures of what you have tried on?

Are you sure you can’t get a custom ring? you have time to search around! Think out side the box! (google custom ringmakers in your area)and get a price for a gold band that has matching side detiail. That way you still see the design. And maybe will save $ if there isn’t diamonds.
My Wband has the matching design and I love it, because I love the design and thus can see it from “my view” of my ring. Ering:

@alyssaC: Dont settle! I felt the exact same way — every wedding band I tried on was “meh” (uh even at Cartier!) and I just wanted to love something as much as I love my e-ring! Well, I finally found the one, after looking at (not kidding) probably 50. YOU WILL TOO! 🙂 🙂

@Oklahomagirl: Thanks!! No, I didn’t think to take any pictures
@FutureMrsMcLaughin: Yeah I think we may revist the idea of a custom ring, if we can save enough $$$
@wrkbrk: Thanks for the encouragement!!!! I just thought for sure that I would at least like something I tried on yesterday, but not one stuck out 🙁 I will keep trying!!!!

@alyssaC: oh ok, it looks like your ring sits up fairly high, could you maybe pour a 1/2 eternity band with it? Or would it need to be curved?
