Before we got engaged, my fiance and I looked at rings together and I told him what I liked so I let him make the final decision. The night he proposed I was ecstatic but not too much with the ring. He took pride and joy in picking the ring so I told him I loved it but in actuality I would have chose something else. So I’m looking forward to my upgrade ring where I can decide what I want. So the delimma now is do I get a wedding band that matches my current ring or the future upgrade ring?
Help me decide!

How long are you planning to have the current one?

I vote current ring. Or a classic ring that will go with both.

Well it depends on when you’re going to upgrade & if you already know what you will get.

Can we see your current ring and the ring you’re thinking of? I’d get a plain band for now as that matches almost anything and then save up for the upgraded set.

I don’t necessarily know when I will get the upgrade ring. I was thinking maybe around our first year anniversary but I don’t know how to approach the subject with my fiance without seeming I’m trying to toss my current ring out the window. I wish there was a band that went with both but my current ring is curved and raised so I will pretty much have to get a custom band to match it.
The types of rings I like.
With this band

Get the new band, don’t worry if it doesn’t sit flush.

Totall agree. Get a nice plain classic band that you could wear alone too, and then get your dream set in the future.

I would say it really depends on how long you plan on having this current one. Something like a year, I think it would be best to get a band that will be compatible with the ring you plan on eventually getting. but you plan on getting a new ring 5 years from now, just have a band custom made to fit with the current ering you wear.
How does you Fiance feel about upgrading? that’s another ting to consider, is he willing to pay for the upgrade and band?

I don’t mind a gap, so I would get the classic eternity band and wear it mostly alone until you upgrade!

I don’t think he minds but I haven’t fully dicuss it with him yet. Don’t want to hurt his feelings.
Thank you ladies for all your input!! I think I’m gonna go with the classic band for now.
