    Haha, I love my ring to pieces, but I totally want a radiant cut stone. We’ve discussed swapping the stone out since a new one with much better specs wouldn’t be that expensive, but it’s not really a priority.

    I’m just like that.  Clothes, cars, phones, and my ring.  I’ve changed my ring like 3 times already…and am planning to again in the future as well.  It’s a sensitive topic on the bee, as some are against changing your e-ring and some are for it.  I personally think if you don’t like it, even if you did for a while and just want something else….change it if your FI/DH is okay with it!

    Have you thought about getting a few thing stacking bands in different metals and patterns to “switch” things up a bit when the mood hits you?

    I don’t tend to change my mind (which has its benefits and drawbacks). It would be a real stretch to say I’m “super easy to please!”

    I am very opinionated…and stubborn. The upside of this is when I like something, I tend to always like it. I’m decisive and committed. The downside is that when something offends me etc., I don’t tend to change my mind about that either (it’s possible to change it but only with logic, not with an irrational emotional plea, for example). My strong personality is not for everyone. My Fiance can handle it because he actually likes that it is “challenging but possible” to do things to my standards (his perspective is that this brings out the best in him), but a lot of other people are like, “why can’t your standards be flexible and looser for your friends/self than strangers/rivals?” Meh, they just can’t, and actually, the closer I feel to a person, the higher my standards for them are (meaning my very highest expectations are on myself). Anyway, a lot of people don’t like it.

    So, while I don’t have any interest in changing my ring, ever, so that’s nice and simple …it’s hardly like my personality doesn’t present itself as challenging in its own ways either. There’s good and bad sides to every way of being.

    @MrsMc77:  I get that and I totally have that too with my clothes, other rings (cocktail rings) and nail polish, etc. Different -sometimes radically different- styles depending on my mood. Love them all but would never wear them all at the same time.

    I guess maybe the diff is that I have a select few items I see more for their symbolism and not so much their specific style. The engagement ring and some family heirlooms mostly, and I expect the wedding band would be the same. They look how they look… I get used to that look. Kinda like how I have brown eyes. I probably woud have chosen purple eyes if I had had the option, though today maybe I would feel more in the mood for green… but brown is what they are and I’m used to that and identify with that, so I’m happy with them and don’t want purple or green contacts. But purple or green nail polish on the other hand…   KWIM?

    no, well, kinda. i am like that up until i finally make the decision. then after that, im happy. i go back and forth, back and forth, until i finally rule out every option except the perfect one. then, i have no reasons to change my mind. this happened with invites, the dress, the photographer, the venue, wedding bands, my cell phone, my car, what i named my cat….u name it, and ive been in a twist about it.

    @MrsMc77:  I know I’ve seen some people here on the bee that have a stack with their engagement/wedding rings.  There is one with a thin rose gold band and a few silvers.  It looks so pretty since they’re thin and delicate. 

    Either way, it’s your ring!  If your husband doesn’t mind…no harm no foul!

    I know what I want 99% of the time, but thanksfully left the ring up to Fiance.  If he asked me to choose, I probably wouldn’t be able to.  I love my e ring but am totally open to getting more right hand rings though 🙂

    I didn’t vote, because I wouldn’t say I’m super easy to please, but once I decide I like something, I’m a very set-in-my-ways kind of girl.

    I don’t have an e-ring yet, but I have four other rings (three RHR, one on my left hand middle finger) that I’ve been wearing for years. One for 7 years, one for 6 years, one for 4 years and one for 2.5 years (that replaced an 8 year ring). So once I like something, it’s pretty much there for good!
