If you don’t want the enhancer that “goes” with your ring, you are not being ridiculous!  You get to choose your ring, not the saleslady.  Don’t let her talk you into something you don’t want.

You and your Fiance should not have to deal with someone so intent on convincing you of what you want!  Is there any way you could ask for someone else to help you the next time you shop there?  I really like the 3/4 ct that you chose.  And I have NO advice for ordering on-line.  I would think that if it arrived and you didn’t like it, you could return it.

Yeah, this person doesn’t seem to understand customer service. You might even have better luck checking out a different business – maybe someplace independent and locally-owned would do a better job than a chain?

Try going to a custom jeweler.  You will be amazed at the service & attention to your specifications.  Fiance had my ERing made and then we picked the wedding bands together.  I had a lovely time at the shop and Mr. Arendsen walked me through the entire process he uses to make a custom wedding band.  It was really interesting and I felt like a part of the process instead of just picking out a ring.  I think you’ll be very pleased.

I would highly recommend going that route.  You’ll get exactly what you want!

First, beautiful ring!! Another bee has that style and I love it πŸ™‚ Second, the last time a saleswoman told me what I wanted I left and never went back. Kay’s and the like are notorious for poor customer service, I own a bunch of stuff from them and it’s usually a headache. For your ring, if you want a flat band (which I absolutely agree with, I wanted the same thing) I would suggest looking for a diamond band with a milgrain edge. I can’t post links from my phone, but I know I’ve seen them at Blue Nile and I know bees who have purchased from there happily. Do a google search for diamond and milgrain and you’ll see what I mean. I think it would look fabulous! And I wouldn’t get hung up on carat weight, I understand wanting more as I did too but you might be pleasantly surprised πŸ™‚

@headoverhighheels:  Listen the Kay’s where I go .. The sales people can be pushy as honestly in myexperience they have terrible customer service. Those bands would look nice and I honestly prefer thicker bands also. Everyone always tries to convince me that a 2mm band will match my ring best and it’s just not happening . That’s too thin for me. I recently ordered a ring online from Kay’s.com and they had some special for free shipping so I went for it. I returned it in the store and didn’t have to pay a dime. They were having sales yesterday for the holiday and free shipping so I think you should try it out!

You are not ridiculous for not wanting the badn the lady at Kay’s was pushing on you.  If you don’t like it, you don’t like it and there is nothing wrong with that.

That said, while the rings you posted are GORGEOUS, I’m not sure about how they would look next to your ring.  I feel like it would probably be a bit much.

Try looking at places other than Kay’s.  Every jewelery store around will have wedding band options and your e-ring and wedding band(s) don’t have to be from the same place.  Maybe look at putting a band on each side of your e-ring if you want a little more bling.

I have a channel set wedding band that matches the band on my e-ring and I love it.  Have you looked at any channel set bands?

ETA: By The Way, you don’t have the world’s fattest fingers! πŸ˜‰

We went through Kay and I did not go with their “suggestions.” One of my friends used Kay as well and bought two of the same band to put on both sides. I would look online or at another Kay, sometimes they have a completely different selection.

I have noticed the sales people can be pretty pushy. Go with what you love not what they think.

No, you’re completely in the right. It sounds like she just wanted to make the sale and get you out. Honestly, who gives a you know what about what she thinks? It’s your ring. I would have complained to the manager and gotten a new sales rep.

I have bought from Kay before – both in store and online – and I am not impressed. I think you could definitely get a 1 carat band in your price range. I got my platinum 5-stone 1 carat wedding band for $800 on ebay.
