My SO and I have decided to get hitched! Now I’ve just got to figure out what the heck ring I want. When I first started looking I for sure thought I wanted a black or grey diamond, pear shaped, bezel set, simple white gold/platinum band. This proved harder to track down in my tiny budget than expected! I put feelers out for quotes from a couple jewelers, and in the meantime kept browsing. Last night, I stumbled on a photo on Instagram that…I guess the best way of describing it is “thunderstruck”. First time I’d felt that for any particular ring! And this ring was basically nothing like I’d been hunting for before–round cut, prong set, funky band. I tracked the ring down, and it’s in my budget for sure. (I’m attaching a photo, I’m not that big of a tease)
I sent a photo of it to my mom and sister for their opinions, I was so excited! And both of them kind of just shat all over it. Now I’m having massive second thoughts. Is it too flat? Should an e-ring sit up higher? Is this something I just like NOW, will I like this years down the road? Am I making a mistake? It doesn’t help that I’m recovering from surgery and have literally nothing else to fixate on haha.
What do you guys think? (I realize this is hard to gauge not knowing me or anything!)
