    @jpalm13:  I don’t think it looks bad at all. I could see how you might want it about another half a mm thick. If he took that long to make it in the first place, would you have a new one in time for the wedding?

    @jpalm13:  i think it looks fine but you are the one who has to be happy with it.  i would have mentioned something regarding the huge price jump though.

    also, if your fi’s ring is too big, get it sized now before the wedding.  i’m not sure when and where you are going for your honeymoon but i have heard of too many guys losing their wbands on their honeymoon b/c they didn’t size it beforehand.

    I actually really like it as is! But if you’re not happy, you should talk to the jeweler. Did you agree upon a mm thickness? And is it not what you asked for? Or are you just surprised that it doesn’t look like you imagined? If they made a mistake, they should correct it…if you just changed your mind, it’s less likely they will want to fix anything because it isn’t their mistake.

    I think it looks great! But i have NO idea why it took 6 months to get those done.

    @jpalm13:  well if you agreed upon a width and it’s not what it’s supposed to be then I would make them fix it. But just from my perspective it does look the same width in that palm shot. It looks like the band is more half round and hugs your finger better but the width looks very close. Maybe it’s more noticeable IRL though. 

     

    Actually now that I’m looking more, do you mean the height off your finger? That I can tell is different. But the actual width of the rings looks the same in that picture.

    @jpalm13:  Personally, I think the rings look great together!  I love pave with a plain band.  I have a 2.5 – 3 mm white gold pave engagement ring and a 2mm titanium wedding band.  I don’t think they have to be the same size.. and like when they are not because they are two different rings with two different meanings.  But, you have to wear it everyday so you should be happy with your discussion.  Maybe give it a day or two.  🙂

    @jpalm13:  ok yes I totally see what you mean then and that might drive me nuts. I just kept looking at the width and thinking it matched. I think they call it height…but I’m no jeweler! It looks like your wedding band is more dome shaped and your engagement ring is more square and that’s why it’s not a perfect match. 

     

    Edit: here’s an example from bgd. Under measurements it says the width is 2.5/2 mm. Then height says 1.4/2 mm. So I think that’s the issue is that the vertical height doesn’t match. And I think that would bother me as well so hopefully they can fix that!

    I like the band, personally. But if you are not satisfied, you should most definitely call the jewler and let him know. 2months to 6months is a big discrepency. As is the price quoted vs what you paid. If anything, I think you should be refunded some $$.

    Keep us updated!

    I also like the bands together, but if you are unhappy with them then I think you should try to resolve that with the jeweler.

    I’m a firm believer that if you go the custom route, the jeweler should do everything in his/her power to make sure you’re 100% satisfied! My e-ring is custom as well as our wedding bands and our jeweler always made sure things were perfect for us throughout the process, even if it meant starting over (which luckily we did not need to).

    I can see the difference in the height and how different the bands are shaped – if that doesn’t make you happy I would tell your jeweler especialy if the bands were supposed to match! When we got my wedding band made, our jeweler took my e-ring for a couple of weeks to make sure they’d match but mostly so the pave diamonds matched. Did your jeweler make your e-ring? They should have had the specs on file, if notI’m surprised they did not take your e-ring to make sure everything matched up!
