    Is it too late to return your ring? Also, do you have a picture of the band you’d prefer?

    I think you are going to have to let something go. eitehr keep looking and be ok with the idea that you might not have your “final” ring during the wedding (and have a temp band for the ceremony), or settle for the ring you have now. 

    personally, I’d return the ring.  I wouldn’t want to have spent so much money on something I feel “meh” about. 

    By The Way: I have seen the ring you like at moissaniteco.com for a very good price. they sell a thinner more delicate version of it too, but it’s not listed online– if you want to see it you’ll need to email them about it.

    by the way, the reason why I say to keep looking: because I ended up not liking my first wedding band, after it was too late to return it! I tried really hard to learn to love it, but I just couldn’t talk myself into it. 

    I ended up looking for a looong time for a replacement band, and it was worth it because I really love my new band now. but I’m stuck with that other ring. I really wish I had returned it while I had the chance!  :/

    If you know you want a different band, I’d give up the Tiffany’s one and grab one of the ones the PPs have posted.  

    I always ALWAYS imagined I’d have a plain wedding band.  I wanted something simple and classic and sturdy.  FI ordered the matching band for my e-ring and I was nervous I wouldn’t like it at first– but got used to the idea and now I love it and can’t imagine it any other way.

    I have almost the exact same E ring as you do and had the same feeling about the matching band.  The one I ended up ordering is this, I thought it was a little more delicate and adds an element of interest to the set, but matches the band of the e ring with the milgrain around the side.  I also tried one on like the circle/marquis one you posted and liked that as well.

    @unixfairy:  Hm. So the reminder to him to listen is that YOU wear a band that you don’t like?  I would want my wedding band to have a more positive sentiment and memory than that and not be a reminder to HIM to not make unilateral decisions for me (ugh!)!

    I do not understand why you can’t both find a solution you BOTH like, and why it has to be a “compromise you have to make”. I firmly believe that it is possible in a relationship, and marriage, to work together to find solutions you BOTH are happy with without feeling it is “compromising” necessarily. Instead of seeing two possible ways to go or answers, you together find a third that is way better anyway, yay!

    I think there are plenty of great Tiffany Swing replicas if you are looking for something like that (like MoissaniteCo, but I believe Brian Gavin or Whiteflash also makes something similar). If you still want the “reminder”, you can then wear it on your left hand or as a pendant, or something of that sort. Or heck, mount it in a display and put it on the wall as a “reminder”.

    @unixfairy:  It does come in platinum.  I originally found it online at this site:  http://www.elizabetajewelry.com/products/beverley-k-diamond-floral-eternity-band-number-274  I was hesitant to order online though so found a local jewelry store that carries Beverly K so I could try it on.  I ordered it through them and it was about $350 cheaper than online.  The whole Beverly K collection is at http://www.beverlyk.com.  There is a lot with milgrain detailing.

    @unixfairy:  The set is beautiful. I myself was in the same exact situation when Darling Husband and I got married. He bought the matching band (which actually is heavily milgrained and looks much like your set) and I didn’t get a chance to shop around or find a wedding band that was me. He just assumed he had to buy the matching wedding band. I find it makes my set very large and a big statement. Over the course of the last year I have fallen  in love with it because it is the ring I got married with, but some day’s I do pine over a dainter simplier band!! I think you need to talk to your Fiance about it, if you don’t think you can fall in love with it then its best to find one you truly do love asap!! Best of luck!!

    If I were you, I’d take my time and find the band that I’d really like to wear.  Since you can return your ring, I’d keep on looking for the one that you really like.
