My first thought is, "The world would be pretty boring if we all wanted exactly the same things."

Anyway, I would be really excited to see it.  I love vintage jewelery, and have an image in my mind of what I think it looks like, but would love to see if the real deal fits the image.

Your whole ring story is really great!

Sounds wonderful…and your engagement ring story is also so thoughtful. Just brush these people off. If you feel like you HAVE to say something to them, tell them it’s "greener" to buy used diamonds anyway. Then you can shut them up while being environmentally sound.

My ering is an estate piece.  There’s nothing wrong with buying antique ring.  I think that person was just rude and clueless.  Ignore it.

Congrats on finding the perfect wedding band!

I wanted an estate piece so bad!  I just didn’t know where to look in my area to find one and wasn’t willing to buy one online.  I am super jealous 🙂

I have a few friends who have that kind of mentality.  They have just learned to not give me crap about buying great used peices.  Then I just watch on with a snicker when thier junky new stuff falls apart and the great crafmanship of my old used peices holds up forever. Muah-ha-ha

So… let’s see pics!!!

I’m surprised at how thoughtless people can be sometimes!

I think its great that you have an "estate" piece. There are so many pluses to having soemthing like this. Plus, your friend assumes that the ring has a bad story, but perhaps it has a very happy story to it- being passed down through a few generations of long, happy marriages. You never know! 🙂

I think that if you love it, that is all that matters.

And on a side note, I think its wonderful that he proposed with three diamonds for his three girls! Very cute.

As for that rude girl, who cares! Just think of all the great memories that the person before you had with that ring. Maybe it was a woman in her 90s that was married for 60+ years. Its your wedding band now!

You should definitely not let this rude woman take away from the excitement of having your wedding band!  Congrats!!!  I know how exciting it is to see them together – I have tried mine on like 3 times since we got it!

I’m wondering if this casual acquaintance was maybe a little JEALOUS of how happy you are about your new ring…? 😉

Congratulations on finding the perfect wedding band! I’m sure it’s beautiful — can’t wait for photos.

Congratulations on finding something that is not boring, as doctorgirl said.  Estate pieces have history and character.  That’s why they look like they’re made to go with your ring or your personality. Yes, sometimes when you buy a "used" wedding band, they come from unhappy marriages, but they always symbolize hope and happiness.  Wedding bands are one piece of metal that never ends.  I am hoping that we can find our used wedding rings that have an old wedding date inscribed, so we can add ours.

I hope you upload pictures, I can’t wait to see it!
