I think you can do whatever you want! Have 50 rings if you want! I will end up having 4 rings! A plain white gold band, diamond half eternity, Ering AND a CZ/sapphire eternity band from Berricle. WHO CARES! JUST DO IT!

@abirdword:  Well, if I may sudgest, that you wait for the 5 year mark to get another “real” ring. When my Fiance bought my ring, I said that I would pay for the wedding bands. I gave myself the cap of the amount my Fiance paid for my ring ($800USD) as my budget. Now I feel like I had the right to get whatever kind of ring/s I wanted, as long as I didn’t go over my $800 ring budget. So the ring tally goes:

FI’s man-gament ring – $50
FI’s wedding band – $200
My Blingy ring – $350
My Plain Band – $100
My Berricle ring – $50 

And that puts me at $50 under my limit! WOOT!

My mother has 3 wedding-related rings. Her diamond engagement ring and matching band (which these days are soldered together) and a wide, like 4mm+ white gold band with her married monogram engraved on the top–no other details. She wears them for the apropriate events. Cleaning? Going swimming? Working outside? It’s the plain band. Going out to dinner? Going shopping? Quiet evening inside? It’s the diamond engagement/wedding ring combo. This is so normal, and practical, to me, I see no reason to feel guilt. Wear the ring that goes with the situation and embrace the fact that you have a choice!

That’s a beautiful ring and I bet it would look just as beautiful on your right hand or pointer finger. I suggest hinting that it would make a very good gift for an occasion one day.

I have always said I’d rather have a plain band, eternity ring, anything low set.  I’m just extremely hard on rings (and I’m left handed).  I think you should go for it or try to find something similar!

@abirdword:  If you can afford it and your husband supports it, GET WHAT YOU WANT!

If you can afford it, just get the ring you want. If you can’t, save up until you can. Why would you feel spoiled and ungrateful? You want what you want. For some reason you got something different than what you want – now go out and get the thing you want!

@abirdword:  I love your sapphire halo!  But I understand having your heart set on something else too.  I would definitely talk to your Darling Husband about it, but I see nothing wrong saving up for it on your own too.  For birthdays, holidays, etc. ask for money for your “ring fund”.  It will obviously take a while but I think it’s better to save up for something you love than to settle for different cz sets that aren’t what you really want.
