I just took a huge intake of breath when I saw them. They are beautiful and so unique. I don’t get why you don’t like them but obv you have to be happy with them. I’m not sure I’d bother soldering – then you can always choose to go back to the single ring you look you love and switch it up if you want. But they are so beautiful.

I love the set! It’s really up to you in the end but I think they look really nice. They do look a little tight so maybe once you get them sized up you’ll like them better!

I love the three together they are beautiful!  But if you still aren’t happy what about matching a ring to the double bands you had made and wear that on your right hand and the engagement on your left.  I bet a thin band with a solitaire setting would make a gorgeous ring when put with the two bands.

I was really expecting to see a photo of a hot mess, but when I saw it–I just went WOW!-that’s a beautiful set.

It looks like the top band need to be sized up just a bit because it looks a tad tight. The bottom ring looks fine, to me.

Really, I think it’s a beautiful set.

The whole set is very pretty and classy, and I love how it looks! As PPs have said, wear the whole thing for a bit and see if you get used to the look, and then consider sizing up the bands.

Ring crush!!!! oh the set is just lovely!!!!  The ring on it’s own is gorgeous but I do think that the bands complete the look!  I think you may just need some getting used to.

Or maybe you could wear the bands together on your right hand.

But I know how you feel… when I first got my 3rd e-ring (long story!) I panicked.  I thought I hated it and than after wearing for a while I didnt want to take it off.  Now I keep looking at it and smile!

Try to give yourself a bit of time to get used to it.

I think your set is gorgeous!!  Very unique.  They are most definitely too small, when you wear 3 rings, the top ring is on the meatiest part of your finger so it’s not usually the same size as what your e-ring is.  You may feel differently if they are re-sized.  Also, a very important note about custom rings – your jeweler absolutely should have had you approve a wax mold of the rings before finalizing them.  I’m a little shocked that didn’t happen with a custom piece.  For any bees getting custom work – always give your approval on the wax mold before it’s completed!  I DO think your rings are beautiful though 🙂

@juliette.eliza:  I agree wtih PPs that your set is beautiful, and I agree with you that it looks as if the jeweler followed your directions exactly. The set definitely looks as if it belongs together. However, it IS so important that you love your rings.

Here’s what I think may be the reason you don’t love them together in reality, even though you love the IDEA of them together in concept, and I’m not sure it’s just the “muffin top” issue (which, by the way, many of us who wear three rings have and have become used to over time.)

I think that what is actually happening here — and, of course, it’s pure speculation on my part — is that one of the primary things that you LOVE about your e-ring — it’s openness and delicate, free edging, appears to be gone when you “close” your e-ring in on both sides with your new bands. It’s like having a beauitful, flowing image on a piece of paper and then drawing lines around it to enclose it. It takes away one of the important traits that drew you to that style in the first place.

So, although most, if not all, of us think that your jeweler did an outstanding job and your rings totally look as if they belong together and do make a beautiful set, I will encourage you to experiment with the order of your rings.  First, try just one or even both of your bands below your e-ring so that the top of it still has the free-flowing look that your e-ring gave you before you put on the two bands.  The, experiment with which direction you like best for both of the bands below your e-ring (one facing up, the other down; both facing up, both facing down.) You may be stunned at how much something as simple as ring order or directional change can alter your view of something. Try it, and post pics of what you like best! 🙂
