answer: yes it does!
the ring on the left is my current wedding ring. it fits my e-ring perfectly.
the one on the right is from moissanite & co. I was dying to try it, and now that I finally have, I know that it is not the right ring for me. I know that it looks like my hand is swollen in the photo on the right, but it’s actually because the thicker ring is pushing my e-ring into the fat, causing it to appear more swollen.
too bad, I was in love with the design. I found a very similar design that is thinner at idjewelryonline.com, but I’m worried because I can’t find any information telling me whether their diamonds are conflict free. does anyone know the answer to that?

Hahaha, love the title of this thread! I really like your actual wedding set so much better even if the new ring fit properly. I don’t like how that sideways marquise shape in the band competes with your big diamond.

I like the original set better. I don’t like how the other ring sits with your e-ring.

yay, thanks ladies! these posts make me feel better about my decision.
maybe one day I’ll ask my husband for the swing ring as an anniversary gift – to wear on my right hand! but for now, I’m finally satisfied that I made the right choice for my wedding ring- the ring on the left.

I don’t think this has anything to do with making your finger look fat. If you ring is doing that to the skin on your finger, it means your setting is too small. Have your ring made bigger to the size it should be and it will look beautiful and like it fits.

I.D. Jewelry is a great vendor and one reccomended by PriceScope.com, which is a consumer advocate sight regarding the diamond industry.
It is illegal in the US to import diamonds that are not “conflict-free.” Every diamond imported legally into the US since 2002 when the law was passed in congress, is conflict-free. However, there is still a chance that some dealers may have stones in their inventory from prior to 2002. You can certainly request that they guarantee the stones used in your purchase from them are from conflict-free sources. Any reputable jeweler should be able to provide you with reasonable, credible assurance that the stones are conflict-free.

haha i love the title! when i first got my ring i was asking people that – as a joke…it was way too big on me. i had to have it sized down almost 2 full sizes.
the one on the left is much prettier! it looks beautiful on your finger!

@Mrs. Louboutin: I agree that the rings are too small. I see that all the time on here. that people say that they wear a size 5 but their fingers look like they squeezed the ring on and the “fat” per-say is bulging over their ring. they probably sould be wearing a 7+, for example. I don’t know how some I have seen on here aren’t uncomfortable!

my fat finger comment was just a joke, I knew the ring wasn’t fitting properly. I was just trying it on to see if I liked the style. I do like the design, but it just doesn’t go well with my e ring- it’s too wide and overwhelms my solitaire.
now I’m thinking of getting the one from idjewelryonline.com, which is more delicate. but I’m going to wait it out. maybe it will go on sale.
