Hello! Need some thoughts on the subject of wedding bands.
Was lucky enough to receive both my grandmother’s ring and a 1ct. champagne color solitare from my future mother-in-law for our engagement.
Wedding date is in April. Went shopping last night for wedding bands.
I worked for Tiffany a while ago, so I had in mind I might want a ring from there. Know they have quality stuff.. But also know they can be overpriced and you’re paying for the name.
Tried them all on. Found one I liked (as if that was hard!), but of course it was the most expensive one of the group ($4,000 total with tax). He didn’t put up much of a fight, but know he was thinking wtf.
9 round brilliant diamonds. .27 ct weight total, PT950
We are debt free and he has the money, but now I’m having second, third, fourth thoughts that we should return it.
It’s beautiful, but too much. Too much money, too flashy (for my style), too much everything.
Thinking I’d just prefer a solid band, no stones.
Now that I’ve had time to think about it.. Don’t want food getting stuck, don’t want baby things getting in there. Don’t want a weight bar to scratch it at the gym. Your fingers change over time so I might not even be able to wear it all the time. God forbid I lost a stone.
Seems I just want a simple band. Didn’t know I truly wanted that until now.
Should I return it and go with my gut?
I could still get Tiffany, but just a simple band.
Not sure if I just have buyers remorse, as this is now the most expensive thing I own? Should I take more time to think about it?
Thank you bees 🙂
