After lots of searching for a loose diamond and a mounting that matched most of my criteria I am now wearing my ring! We waited for a mounting event but ended up with the one I’d already found. I didn’t go with the matching wedding band to it….I never even saw it. It was out of stock and the saleslady said it was channel set(which I don’t tend to always love) and she thought it didn’t match it well. I tried all tons of wedding rings but Hubs liked this best. I sort of wonder if I should have gone more carat weight on the wedding band? Just so the width would match the engagement ring? They are close though. I still can’t stop staring at it 🙂

Angietime: Thanks for all your help. I’d just told my husband about the diamond you emailed me about when he wanted to go to one more jewelry store. That turned out to be where we found my diamond. We found it the day we left for our delayed honeymoon. It was a better deal than any I’d seen and a nicer stone to boot. It checked out with another GIA trained appraiser too. Whew….you just never know. I’d seen it under a microscope though and it blew me away. I knew it was the one.
You’ve all helped me feel so much better about how the two rings look together. Thanks! I just worried about the width of the two bands matching. And I tend to be a matchy/matchy girl as a rule so not going with the matching band was a stretch for me. I do drool over mismatched sets on here though and stacked rings. My ring isn’t exactly what I’d envisioned: I’d thought I’d end up with round stones down the engagement ring band and a matched set. But I LOVE it and I’ve heard so many stories on here where you end up with something slightly or very different than you thought you would. Short of custom(which I decided not to do) this was my best choice and the best part is we picked it out together so it feels like US. A true representation of our love for each other….blinging away on my finger…lol.
