So if anyone had seen my earlier post, I was super excited about my e-ring this morning. We picked it up from the jewelers and it is SO beautiful. The only problem is we chose a Hearts on Fire setting and the center stone is NOT HoF. It still sparkles just as much, but the color is a little more yellow than the side stones, compounded with the fact that they are much smaller it looks quite a bit darker. However, together they are lovely and you can’t tell except in bright natural light. Anyway, the reason we did a non-HoF center stone is because it was his mom’s e-ring stong and we wanted to keep it in the family. Anyone else had a similar problem? I am not going to change it, and I wouldn’t given the opportunity, it’s just that it was a bit shocking to see the difference at first. Just to be clear: I LOVE my e-ring and all that it symbolizes, but at the same time I (like everyone, I’m sure) was hoping for a more perfect match. :

it might only be noticeable to you. maybe one day you can have it replaced with a brighter stone, and have your mom’s diamond put into a necklace or a right hand ring.
I know how you feel, though. when I got engaged, I LOVED my ring. but after a few weeks, I discovered it had tiny chips on the edge (it’s a really old ring). at first I was disappointed, but I got over it. you can’t see them, only I know they’re there.

I can totally see why you’re disappointed but in my mind, the fact that it’s an heirloom diamond trumps any “imperfections”, that’s sooo special!! Do you have a pic? Would love to see it…Anyways, you said it’s not notciceable except in bright light so I’m sure you are the only one who would ever notice!

I agree with PP that its probably only noticeable for you. You probably stare at your ring (I do) and other people don’t, they just see pretty bling 🙂
