nunie :  I’m wondering why you were rushed? I would just tell him you felt rushed and the ring is uncomfortable and you want to sell or return it and get something else. How much was it?

Just saw the fact that you’re going to wear it for two years! Yes,get something you can live with! This will drive you crazy. You can look on etsy for gold filled bands they are pretty reasonable, even silver depending on your budget. 

I’m bothered by the fact that you were pressured though. Even if it’s “just” temporary you should have been able to take the time to pick it.

I’m sorry, I don’t think it looks wearable. It looks terribly uncomfortable. Can it not be resized? I actually don’t think it’s that bad of a match! 

Since you can’t return it.. if it cant be resized, I’d just throw it in a jewelry box and forget about it. Or try to get a few bucks for it at a pawn shop? Speaking of pawn shop, maybe find a slim used band to wear for a year or two? 

Or buy a cheapie from berricle.com maybe? They ship super fast. And they hold up very well! 

Or ebay? 🙂

Can you wear it on your right hand? Or wear your engagement ring on your right hand?

Maybe you can put it on a chain and wear it on your neck since it has the sentimental engraving on it. Then like others have said either look at a pawn shop or online somewhere for a simple thin band to wear for now. Berricle is a great place to get nice looking fans that will be fine for a couple of years! You could even get one with stoned if you’re looking for bling and they are very affordable.  also it should have been obvious to that Jeweler that that band was going to be too tight on your finger with another ring. Therefore the Jeweler is partly at fault

On a necklace sounds like a nice idea for that ring. Or possibly the other hand? Could you do that?


check out full moon jewelry in Etsy. They have teeny thin bands for super cheap. I have 2 in my stack. They were $20 and I’ve been wearing them for 2 years. They are great!

Why don’t you just use your engagement ring for the ceremony? I know people who didn’t even bother with the band because their e-rings were enough.

I think its lovely, on its own, now that it is engraved, wear it on your right hand or a chain….personally i wouldnt want to get married and go through my wedding ceremony with a “temporary” ring….I would use my ering in this case to get married with as you want your ring exchange to be your forever ring…I coudlnt imagine just discarding or upgrading my wedding ring if he had put it on my finger during our vows, just my own personal opinion.

I’m really side-eyeing your fiancé here. Was it really necessary to insist on one store only, then take his mother with you and THEN rush you? A wedding band is something super important to many people. I guess I would have been like, okay, I’ll go browse alone and once I picked a ring, you can come with me again (or give me free rein (reign?) to buy it on my own.)


Is this a pattern in your relationship?

It looks nice but horribly uncomfortable. I’m wondering why you can’t have either the engagement or wedding band resized? 

Short of that, I’d just get a simple, thin, Sterling silver band. Keep in mind that you don’t have to love it, especially if it’s temporary. You need to be able to wear it without losing your finger.
