I love your wedding band! I’ve never seen a 6 stone ring before, where did you get it? I’ve been shopping for a new wedding band, and I love that one!

Thank you Olivepepper, tnacity1123 and punkybrewster!
I had never seen either type ring before either so with the 6-stone ring it’s simply something I dreamed up in my mind to have done by a private jewellerer. I agreed to use the same jewellerer that my husband had used for the engagement ring (someone trusted they’d used in his family for many years) – the only problem with that being that the jewellerer is in the U.S. and hubby and myself are based in Europe. Thus, I designed the wedding band from a distance, from my mind, emailing the jewellerer crude pencil drawings and trying to explain in detail what I wanted, and got to evaluate 3D renderings of the design as it evolved and became what I wanted it to be. I never saw the ring in person until 2 days before the wedding when my husband’s family brought it over to Europe for the wedding! It was nerwrecking and I wouldn’t necessarily recommend designing a ring from a distance as it did cause me quite a bit of stress in the process as it had to be just Perfect!
Find a jeweller you can trust is the most important thing though as they’ll work with you without ego til you are satisfied. I went against the jeweller recommendations more than once as frankly I Knew what I wanted, he had the experience and I listened to key points but I also stood up for the design I wanted, including having 6 stones against his recommended 5 stones, having curved U-prongs instead of straight which his first cast of the shank showed. As long as there wasn’t a compromise on how secure the stones would be I pushed for My design and I’m so happy I did because I really got my dream wedding band!

Thank you so much wifeyprice, I remember before getting engaged during the waiting/fretting time
of “is he ever going to ask me” my now-husband asking me if I would want a big brand ring (Harry Winston might’ve slipped my lips) or a bespoke ring and I said “both!” without hesitation 😂 No pressure there then for him! In hindsight I would Only have said BESPOKE! it feels so special to have something very unique and that no-one could just go in and point at and buy in a jewellery store and which comes with the confidence of knowing the person who made the ring rather than knowing a brand name.
