Bees, I *think* I may have found my anniversary ring’s “perfect mate” at last. My whole idea, when Darling Husband gave me this ring last year, was to build a set with it. I’ve never had an actual “wedding set” before, and always wanted one. It seems like an easy enough mission, right? Uh … WRONG! Apparently, when faced with too many choices, I am hugely indecisive and basically want … everything! *bad*
This is the ring I’m 99% sure is “the one”:
It’s from James Allen (3mm), and the current sale makes the price really pretty fantastic.
But here’s my dilemma. This ring, while I love it, is NOTHING like what I kept thinking I wanted. After much web cruising and pretend shopping and oggling here on WB, I had decided on a stack with a rose gold diamond bezel set 1/2 eternity and, later, a diamond and sapphire 1/2 eternity set in platinum. Tonight, I sat down with Darling Husband to look at the various choices. It turns out that he doesn’t like the idea of a stack, because he likes the look of just two rings together. And, he told me he thinks the different metal colors and having different shapes or colors of stones would make it look too busy because my ring’s setting already has a lot going on. I agree with him on this, and have been loving the look of my plain RG band with my ring. I think the plain band isn’t too busy simply because it’s plain — different metal color only, not different metal+ stones. Darling Husband doesn’t love the RG band because he says it’s “too plain” and “too thin”, and it gets lost next to my other ring.
So I asked him what he would pick out, and this is the ring he chose. The more I think about it, the more I think he’s right on the money. It’s a band that will coordinate well with my ring and that will hold its own without taking away from the “ERing” part of my set (my anniversary ring). I’m just feeling a little hesitant because it’s nothing like what I thought I wanted. Am I nuts for feeling so indecisive about this? Truthfully, although I love getting jewelry, I’m kind of sick of looking for that “perfect” band that will pair up well with my ring.
All right … so here’s what I’m asking of you lovely ladies. Do any of you have a gypsy-set band similar to the JA one I’m thinking of getting? If so, do you wear it with your ERing or with another ring? And can I see a picture? Sorry for the super long, rambling post. And thanks in advance to anyone who replies!
