- Wedding: July 2011
I have been looking for a wedding ring to match my engagement ring and i cant find anything that I like 🙁 . Its so frustrating that I always end up crying after every trip. I have postponed the search for one as much as I can. But I think i need to find something this month otherwise i will end up getting a white gold plain band which I know deep inside I will never be happy with.
The engagement ring is a white gold diamond with channel setting on the side. However, the center diamond is set so low its almost the same height as the channel setting. Its very similar to this.
My ideal wedding ring if I were to dream is a diamond half eternity in a pave or shared prong setting (15 pointers with 5 stones) . Unfortunately, if i get something like that , the center diamond looks so small because of the low setting. The center stone is a little over a carat but because of the setting, it looks much smaller than a cathedral set one.
All the stores have suggested channel settings. As much as I would like to love it, I could never care for it . The engagement ring was a surprise and to be honest, I never cared for channel setting so I really cant buy a wedding ring that i will not like.
My friends have suggested changing the setting of the engagement ring but my fiance was not happy with that 🙁 so i need to stick with the current style..
So, I am appealing to all the wedding bees and asking for your help. Any suggestions ? I want something with diamonds in half eternity so the engagement ring will have more presence but it has to be set low. Or should i give up , buy a wedding ring that I love and just wear it on its own after the wedding ?
