I finally figured out how to photograph my ring! Thanks for the advice on the board re: the macro setting. This was my Grandmother’s ring and I love it! I’m still debating whether I will want to use the matching wedding band or get something new. Since my Fiance did not have to buy a ring (I’ve wanted to use my Grandmother’s for about a decade), he is willing to buy me something a little pricier if I want it. I’ve been eyeing the antique scroll ring from Brilliant Earth. Do you think the detail would look stupid since it wouldn’t match? It looks like the images uploaded in reverse order, so the staged fox images are my vintage e-ring and wedding band, the stock photo is the new band I’ve been eyeing.

how pretty!! I’ve seen plenty of “mismatched” wedding rings – plenty of women wear a collection of rings that may not be made to go together but which has so much meaning for them – that’s really the important part. And anyway, you can’t go wrong with any bling, ever 🙂

that scroll ring is fabulous. if i didn’t JUST buy mine, i would consider it for me. heh.
i don’t think it would look bad at all. how’s their return policy? can you get it and try them on together?

I don’t think it will look stupid but I have to say, I love the matching set and since it doesn’t cost anything, if it were me, I’d stick with that…But to answer your question, that band is beautiful and would look great with your absolutely gorgeous e-ring!

they are both beautiful, but the frugal and sentimental part of me would use your grandmother’s band. maybe the brilliant earth band could be a really nice anniversary present down the road?

Thanks guys, I love that it is a round stone in a square setting. It just seems really unique. It also has the added benefit of making a small stone look a little bigger!
It is beautiful, but the most important part of it is the sentimental value. My Grandmother died in 2000 and was really important to me. It’s nice to be able to use something that she loved. This was actually a replacement set that they purchased as an upgrade after they had been married for a while. I’m leaning more towards using the original band…
I am a practical girl anyway… my Fiance keeps having to remind me that it’s OK to plan a wedding that costs a bit (not a lot, we are still having a small wedding, but I’m the one hit by the sticker shock!). His family is the one contributing funds because my family just can’t right now and we are poor theatre folk… Planning a wedding is complicated!
