- Wedding: September 2013
Hi bees! Today my FI and I went back to look for our wedding bands! I am just so stuck in choosing, any help would be greatly appreciated. I will post the bands I am inbetween bellow and if any one has another they think would look better please share! Thanks everyone!!
Here are the 3 bands I was looking at:
This one (above- ring #1) is a prong set one that I liked because you cant see much of the metal so I dont have to worry about matching the same thickness of my ering- but idk if it is too much and takes away from my ering.
this one (above- ring #2) is the first one to the right of my ering in the top picture. I like the little side diamonds it has alot but it is also somewhat square shaped, not fully round- hard to explain I should have taken a picture of that. Here are some more views of it:
– sorry this one is a little blurry but i was trying to get what it would look like from the top.
This one (above- ring #3) is the one all the way to the right in the first pic. It has slightly less diamonds then the other one, but the diamonds is this one are bigger. It also doesnt have side diamonds, but it is completely round and not sqaured like the other.
Here are some other pictures trying to compare them all:
ring # 3 is on top, ring # 2 is on bottom
ring # 2 to the left and ring # 3 to the right
ring # 3 on top, ring # 2 on bottom
ring #2 on bottom and ring # 3 on top again
Okay wow thats a lot of pictures- sorry lol
Ring #1- love it because I dont have to worry about matching the gold band width, but it kinda over powers my ering. It is also prong set- opposite of my ering and more prone to get caught in my hair etc.
Ring #2- love how it matches my ering in width, the side diamonds are awesome, makes it look very pretty from that view, but if I wear the band first- closest to my heart then only I will see the pretty side bands (which I dont mind at all!! FI thinks I should wear this on ontop if I choose it so everyone else can see it) BUT the side view you can kinda see how this is squaish shape which I dont think matches to well and may look odd, but also its in a size too big so idk.
Ring #3- love how it matches my ering even more, its completely round like my ering and similar width. It has a little less diamonds then ring #2 (I think he said .16 points- not sure if thats right) BUT the diamonds in this one are a little bigger. Theres not really a con to this ring other than it doesnt have side diamonds and that it is more expensive than ring #2.
I guess its really between rings #2 and #3- I love them both, each a little over 1 ct total weight I believe, but I still cant choose. We put $200 down on ring #3 because my FI thought if I was wearing the band first then there was no point to ring #2 but now I am second guessing myself and want to hold band #2 until I decide also lol. What are your thoughts, opinions etc??
BTW the jewler is a family friend so there is no problem in calling up and switching the deposit to ring #2 or even to a completely new ring- I just need to decide what I want!
