@lilFaithy:  How about you keep your blingy engagment ring, and get a more simple and modest wedding ring that you can wear day to day and save your engagement ring for special occasions?

The simple solitaire is a total classic. It doesn’t make a big statement, it’s very subtle. I’ve got a solitaire and plain band. I’ve got eternity bands and things to decorate it a bit more when I feel like it. I’ve got other bigger fancier rings but I always love simple styles! My husband just bought me a beautiful oval blue sapphire solitaire as a “congratulations on finishing your nqt year” gift. Nothing wrong with simple jewelry!

@lilFaithy:  Can you quantify some of this for us? What size is your ring finger? How big is the ring? What on earth do you mean by blingy? Can you post a pic?

So much on this site is subjective so any facts and numbers you can throw our way would be uber helpful.

@lilFaithy:  I’m not very familiar with religion, so excuse me. Why is there a handbook that dictates how large you wedding set can be? I thought this position was for your husband to be not you…IDK it seems weird to me that they are dictating something so specific and so personal. I agree with pp that giving us more specifics will allow us to be more helpful to you.

If you’re going to be in areas with a lot of poverty I’d consider a band with small diamond accents.  That way you’d never have to take it off.  

For example, something in this spirit – a unique design with a bit of modest sparkle:

If that doesn’t appeal to you, the simple solitaire and band you’re considering would be lovely.  There’s a lot of elegance in modest, simple designs.  I do think you should have a ring you can wear all the time – I took the “save it for special occasions” route with my ering, and feel bad that my ring spends most of its time in a box.

@lilFaithy:  …. There’s a book and contract on what behavior and appearance YOU need to exhibit based on your HUSBAND becoming a preacher….?

OP didn’t post this to get criticized for the handbook/her religion. She is asking about the ring.


@lilFaithy:  I would pray about it. Look for rings and see what stands out to you; I’ve seen many pastor’s wives with solitares and never thought anything of it. Maybe consider getting a pretty wedding band like @abirdword suggested.

@lilFaithy:  I’m insanely curious now (not judging), can you explain this handbook/contract for us? This isnt anything I have ever heard of before?
