    Hi there!

    They are all fun choices.  My .02 is you should pick the one that would look best during a job interview that you may have, say, twenty years from now.  

    A few years ago I scored a job interview at a place I really wanted to work.  In an attempt to look my very best I borrowed my room mates rings, lots of them.  The interview was going really well until the potential boss stared hard at all the rings I was wearing.  It wasn’t until then that I realized they were excessive.  

    Unfortunately people get judged by what they wear, it just happens that way.  A ring that is sentimental to you might give another message to an employer.

    If you don’t think that is a concern – go for whatever one makes you the most giddy!  I have my nose pierced now, employers can take me as I am or not!

    Happy choosing ๐Ÿ™‚

    @mg1363:

    Oh wow, your mom/grandma’s ring sounds precious!  Hmmm, that definitely makes the tiny heart band meaningful.  ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hey – who knows what employers will be thinking twenty years from now.  I live in Portland, OR and it’s acceptable to die your hair rainbow colors and have visible tattoos and body piercing in professional settings.  Certainly if that’s acceptable, so would an adorable tiny heart ring.  I think it’s sweet.

    I have ring #2 in gold.  Smile   It’s gorgeous and I love mine (I wear it as a right hand ring) but it is VERY wide.  It’s 9mm!  I didn’t know wide rings required a larger size to fit, I had to get mine sized after buying it.  I have long fingers, but even then I couldn’t wear another ring with it.  It’s also slightly tapered, it’s narrower in back.

    Go into the store and look at the hearts ring.  I think it’s really pretty but for some reason I think it’s somewhat wide.  4mm maybe?  You know how James Avery always makes things kind of “chunky” and not delicate?  It’s like that.

    Great choices though, James Avery makes some really high quality stuff (I see you’re in SA, so I’m sure know already know that).  Smile

    @berrylava: You know, the dream of the ’90s IS alive in Portland. ๐Ÿ˜‰

     

    OP, I think some of those are cute, and would be nice pieces to switch up your wedding set look every now and then, but for the purposes of serving as a wedding band, I personally find some of them to be a little on the kitschy side and as PP pointed out, might make you appear somewhat unprofessional.

    But if you love the hearts one, maybe get it in silver as a fun ring to wear when you don’t want to wear your wedding set maybe? I think a lot of women get a less-expensive ring to wear on less-blingy days. I wear a sterling silver one to wear to the beach and stuff when I have to leave my e-ring at home. Hopefully in silver it will have a pretty reasonable price point?
