- Wedding: October 2012
I’ll keep this short and sweet.
I’ve been engaged for almost one year exactly. I was so excited and thrilled and all those great things. I loved my ring and just the fact that I HAD a ring. But deep down I was kind of bummed because my friend exact same setting and stone shape (from Blue Nile). I didn’t speak up. The 30 day exchange period is long gone.
Now that I’m looking at wedding bands, I’m realizing nothing fits with the ring except the really thin wedding band that I am not a huge fan of. I’ve seen so many other settings that I would have picked over my current one — for cheaper! Not to mention it has been sized 3 times and it still flops around partly because it’s so thin.
So here’s my idea. My FI has commented that doesn’t see the point of a wedding band. So what if I took my current setting that I don’t abosolutely love, and wear it on my right hand with a gemstone? And then get my diamond re-set in one of the settings that i DO absolutely love, and not wear a separate wedding band.
