@ohjennybomb:  Hi! ice.com is really reputable as far as I’ve been able to tell, and they have a payment system. I’m currently putting 112 dollars down a month for 7 months to pay for my wedding band!

I understand why you would’nt want to drop even $1 on a ring you don’t like.  But i woud get something very understated and simple for now to exchange during the ceremony and then save up for something you really want later on down the road.  If the symbolism of wearing the rings you got married in for life is important to you, then I would just see what you can do about getting a ring you love now in your price range… no use breaking the bank or going into debt for a couple of rings.  And if you do upgrade later, you can always get the rings blessed again and say something meanigful to each other (or re-say your vows), then exhcange them privately and then go out to dinner to celebrate.

I had the same issue of not being able to find a ring that would fit against my engagement ring because there are bands around baguettes that stick out and so any other ring would not lay flat unless it is a custom piece. As you know it is expensive to do this. However, if you talk to a jeweler, they should be able to tell you the measurement of the space between your wedding band and engagement ring. If it is miniscule, as in, just a coupld millimeters, it’s really not worth paying for a custom band….I had to come to terms with that fact and I actually do really like my band now. I don’t think anyone is going to notice the space between the rings except me, and my FH.

 

So, unless your e-ring is really an unusual shape, you could easily get a plain gold band to use as a “placeholder” until you find the band you REALLY adore.

Good luck with everything! And congratulations on your destination wedding!

You could always just have the e-ring. Many brides do it now instead of having two rings they only have one. This is popular with unusual shaped rings, detailed rings and just preference. Then you can spend the money on a nice ring for your Fiance.
