First off, all three bands looked a bit gaudy and cocktailish and diminish the beauty of the dainty engagement ring. You can put them on perfectly and they look okay but they will not stay this way. After they wiggle around they don’t look good. Here is a decent pic:
Also they are not the same size… You can see here the the cradle pushes the bands down so that it looks like my rings are too small and my fingers look fatter…
Another example. This might not seem like a big deal but it has bothered my more and more over time.
Here is a pretty pic of my engagement ring though!
I did think of some ring options though I flipped the rings around to see what plain bands would look like. It frames the engagement ring and makes it even more beautiful. I would order bands a bit thinner if I were to do this or see if a jeweler could just add thin strips of rose gold. I also think the plain gold bands bring out the peach sapphire.
Or Just one band maintains the dainy took and makes the pushes down band less noticable. I could do this with a plain band also or even try a 2 mm band instead of 1.2 or whatever this is. This pic does not do this combo justice.
Please excuse my gross nails and dry skin…
Love that you checked out the different options. I’m thinking I might stop by a local jeweler and see what they have to offer before I buy a band from EP, just to see what different ideas they might have.
Haha, and its okay. My skin is dry and my nails aren’t looking too great right now…
It makes all the rings feel a litte bit smaller and they are harder to take off/ leave a mark in my finger. Not a huge amount and I think when I get real plain bands the will be flatter.
I might be a little late on posting but I have an EP ring that I LOVE! We originally picked out this uber expensive canary diamond and I found this ring and was SO IN LOVE! Mine is 1.62 on a size 4.75 hand.
Also I have only had it for about 3 months but I’m a nurse and I wear it to work almost EVERYDAY. I haven’t noticed any problems with stones yet the only problem I with my line of work is the ring sits up high and I take care of little kiddos and I have to be careful not to snag them:)
Isn’t it crazy how high wedding bands are priced? Maybe it’s because sapphires are so much more reasonably priced than diamonds, but why are some thing eternity wedding bands over $1000? Not at EP but other places.
@DeadlyRed: Ooops, here’s the picture I meant to include. I have the seafoam blue with white gold and I really love it. Mine is 2 carats and my ring size is 5.5. I wouldn’t go any bigger than this. A lot of people assume it’s a diamond and freak the heck out, which is pretty funny. I always set them straight with an “Aren’t sapphires beautiful?”, but they still freak out over how pretty it is.
Sorry this is so late, but as another EP girl, I thought I’d add my two cents. I’ve had my ring for ten months now, and it’s still AMAZING. I’m really hard on my rings and this one has held up perfectly, even after I got it re-sized locally. I did have a diamond in the setting sneak out after I hit it particularly hard on a metal desk, but she sent me two replacement diamonds for free and I had my local jewelry shop do the repair for $30. As some of the other girls have mentioned, you definitely do have to clean sapphires more to keep them sparkly, but it is SO worth it.
I do have one of her more substantial settings, but I have a 4.75 finger and with a .65 center stone, I still get comments all the time on how blingy and big my ring is. (And I live in a city where the average e-ring carat size is 1.8-2.) If you’re not getting one of her heavier settings, I’d recommend getting a 1.5-2.
I’m so glad we went with Eidel…as a few of you have mentioned, I’m also a “forever” ring kind of girl and I really wanted something different that would grow with us, speak to my personality and withstant the test of time. Her rings definitely do that!
