    If you love the engagement ring and you can afford it, I say go ahead and get it!

    I think it depends a lot on you and how you’re planning to wear them.  Personally, I’m planning on wearing my <span class=”Apple-style-span” style=”font-weight: bold”>wedding ring forever, but I might decide to wear it alone at some point.  So, I would not want the engagement ring as my wedding band because I’d rather have a band, and wearing the rings we exchange at our wedding is important to me.  But I know it’s not important to everyone in that same way.

    I say if you like the E-ring – get it !  If you think now that you want it, you will probably want it a year from now and 5 years from now.  If it is in your budget and FI goes for it – I say get it!  And if you still want the second band, you could always ask for that for a Christmas/birthday/anniversary present in the future!

    Aww! They are both beautiful. I would consider getting the e-ring. It is gorgeous. However, you could always wait to get it for a first year anniversary present. My sister in law wanted a diamond band for a wedding ring and had to wait a year. It was well worth the wait!

    I love the two-band look! I myself went that route. if you know what you want, speak up! Or regret it!  If he’s bought the band, why don’t you upgrade at your 1-yr anniversary, then retire your plain band for certain occassions? Like when you travel and don’t want a big flashy diamond.

    Oh, geesh, ignore my vote. I misunderstood completely!!!!!!

    You HAVE a "WEDDING" band. I say you get the E-ring (if you can afford it, I know hearts on fire ain’t cheap!) as your WEDDING RING! HOoray! Best of both worlds. Just reverse.

     I was thinking you had the top ring bought, you had the e-ring, and you wanted a different style wedding band. I meant "two of the same bands" because I have two wedding bands sandwiching my engagement ring. You could do that, too!

    Hooray! I love the sammich look. Just love it. People look at me weird when I say i’ll have three rings (it sounds high maintenance, doesn’t it?) but it looks SOOOOoooooo good together. The symmetry!!! I’m such an engineer sometimes

    I think if you like the e-ring and can afford it, get it!  My friend has the same pair (or something v. similar) and they are very pretty!

    Oooh I love the look of two bands and an engagement ring too 🙂  My vote is get the e-ring and then get another band later too!! 🙂

    You sound like you really want the e-ring, so I say go for it because it’s kind of now or never, he might not be willing to get it down the road!
