    I actually liked point 3 that would also be a really nice idea if you struggle to find anything to match band wise πŸ™‚

    This isn’t an option you listed, but I think a plain band would look beautiful w/it, because your ring is so blingy and makes such a statement on its own.  You’d also have something practical and comfortable to wear on its own when you’re going somewhere or doing something like yardwork and don’t want to hurt your ering.  The high setting would contrast enough w/a low band that the height difference won’t look odd.

     

    If you do change the setting, I like the idea of a bloom.  They’re the perfect sweet spot between solitaire and halo.

    I recommend getting a custom band. Before they make the ring the should do drawing and molds so that you can make any edits. I had both of my rings custom and I love them.

    @Fallicious1012: I love your ring, and for the band, as I did, recommend going the custom route so you can have the best of both worlds:)

    I went through three settings myself and the third was the charm. I drove my Fiance nuts over the obsessing. I STILL find stuff to obsess about, believe me, especially seeing ALL the rings on the bee. I thought since I helped pick my ring it made it ok to want to keep changing it until it was right. But eventually it got old and My Fiance, although wanting me to be happy, got sick of it. I don’t know your Fiance, and he sounds wonderful, so I don’t know if he will get sick of it. (we never will though, here on the bee! πŸ™‚ 

    My point . . .and I do have one . . .Your ring is awesome. I love it so much from the minute I saw it. I have a thin band and always crave a thick substantial one like yours. I would then get a totally different band for my left and put e-ring on right hand if I was in your shoes.  Or go the custom route (it worked for my sister (aod108, haha).  I wouldn’t change it though, it is gorgeous as is!!

    @Fallicious1012: Yes, we are twins in real life.  πŸ™‚ Yeah I am like you in the sense that any decision I make I second guess. The grass is always greener on the other side. . .we want the opposite of what we have, etc. It’s so true. The longer you have/wear your ring, the more it will grow on you as well. Each time I changed my setting a little of the sentiment went away with it as it’s now not the same ring i was proposed to with. This is why I suggest you work with what you’ve got, which it sounds like you are really considering πŸ™‚

    I agree with the idea of a simple band with that ring!! I have a really tall band too and it’s like impossible to find a matching band!!!!!

    @Fallicious1012: I would seriously consider the custom route for your band….this way they can put together something that would match exactly heightwise and you would not need to change the e-ring that you love so much!
