I’ve been trying to figure out what to do for a few weeks now… Fiance (now DH) had given me a yellow gold solitaire Engagement Ring and when I asked him if we could switch it to white gold, he agreed.
After looking at many settings and nearly driving myself nuts trying to choose something, I instead decided to blend my Engagement Ring with my diamond wedding band.
We took it to the jeweler and asked them to take the top stone out of the eternity band and replace it with my Engagement Ring solitaire center stone.
Here is the final product! (Swoon!) I almost did ballet pirouettes down the sidewalk when I left the jeweler with this ring on my finger! An older couple even stopped me to admire it and the lady teased me and said, “I guess diamonds really are a girl’s best friend!”
Today was the BEST day… I just want to share my happiness and ring porn with the hive!

What a wonderful idea to blend your rings. I don’t think it could have turned out more perfect! I know you will enjoy show it off everyday.

Thank you everyone! We are going to put the top stone in the safety deposit box for a rainy day. Just in case I ever lose a stone on the diamond band, we will have a spare.
I would like to have a wedding band to go with my ring … I mean, I *had* a wedding band but I ended up using it to create the Engagement Ring…. so the search continues!
I was thinking of something vintage-y and 1920s-ish. I am going to look around on Etsy but if anyone has any suggestions, I am all ears! I am thinking that since the Engagement Ring is bold and dramatic and chunky, it would be a nice contrast to have a wedding band that is feathery and light. I am also open to having a wedding band with gemstones vs. diamonds. It’s going to be fun to hunt around and see what is out there!
With this on my finger, I don’t know how I will get anything done at work tomorrow! 🙂
