    Girl I don’t want to be mean. But boil that thing down and start again with the materials

    If it’s not right, start over. You’re theoretically going to wear it all day every day, it should be a ring you love.

    I would cut my losses… if anythinh I’d go with a simple pave band and enjoy the gap look – this one matches the 3 stone look you have already

    Who told you they worked together? Completely different styles. I would be upset too. Can you reduce the thickness of the wedding band??

    Just wanted to say that I totally support that band from ASweetPear that a pp mentioned. ASweetPear rules, I abolsufely love that shop. I didn’t cry when my fiancé proposed, and I didn’t cry when I bought my dress, but I sobbed when I saw and tried on my custom ring from ASweetPear for the first time. They do great work. 


    I like your wedding band but I don’t think it matches your e-ring, sadly. It’s much too thick for your beautiful dainty e-ring. I would try to get something else, even just a plain thin gold band.

    I’m sorry it turned out unfavorably. I am surprised they didn’t make a wax mold for you to see and try on first before doing the real one. Likewise, I would have hoped they brought you in to at least explain the dimensions and show you how wide it actually would have been. In the future, if you go custom, I would make sure to see that they do that. 

    I would agree with looking for something else at this point and I like the idea PP shared above. Maybe save this one for a project later down the road.

    I don’t think it hideous , but it is too thick and not of a compatible   style for your  engagement ring. I’d  have it melted down  into a much narrower plain wedding band , and use the diamonds and the left over gold to make another ring altogether . Maybe  to wear with wedding and engagement rings   or a RHR.

    To be brutally honest I also think it needs to just be melted down and started again. Your e-ring is gorgeous and the band really takes away from it. I would go for a classic straight gold band personally, no diamonds. Or something with lots of tiny diamonds like the etsy ring in PP. Having 4 diamonds of that size seems odd…

    My set is custom. I’d go with a plain thin band like this… It’s got a very slight curve around the stones but when I wear it on it’s own it looks like a normal wedding band.
