- Wedding: November 2017
Hey everyone! First time posting, but I’ve been following these boards for a while, trying to figure out what I want! It’s getting close to the time that I need to give Boyfriend or Best Friend a decision on which engagement ring I want. I’m so picky and indecisive (bad combo); I’ve changed my mind about a million times. But I think I have it narrowed down.
What I actually know is I want a plain, rose gold wedding band (something I can wear 24/7, not have to worry about losing stones, getting it caught, etc.). So I’m looking for something to complement that. I love rose gold and love how it looks on me, but I’m having a hard time finding a setting I like. I really love this petite diamond setting from BlueNile (http://www.bluenile.com/petite-diamond-engagement-ring-14k-white-gold_42029):
It has just the right amount of sparkle, but I won’t have to worry as much about damaging it as I would with other thin pave settings. It comes in white gold, which I do like, but I’d prefer rose gold. I called BlueNile; they’d be able to custom order it, but it’s nonreturnable, can take 4-8 weeks, and is more expensive. The rep suggested ordering the WG to see if I like the style/size, then return it for the custom RG order. But I don’t know if I want to do this and see the ring before the proposal!
What do you suggest?
Order the WG and keep it, pairing it w/ the RG band (I usually like the look of mismatched sets, but not sure how this would look)? Also, I’m worried about having to replate the WG…
Order the WG and return for RG if I like the style?
Or just order RG right off the bat (I’ve seen multiple pictures of this setting, I’m pretty sure I’d like it, and I have other rings of similar thickness I wear)?
So does anyone have experience with custom orders through Blue Nile? Any comments/ideas are appreciated!
