My fiance and I just purchased our wedding bands yesterday. At the time, I was so excited and in love with what I chose! Now the more and more I look at it, I wonder if I made a good decision. I love my solitaire engagement ring and I don’t want it to be overpowered by the enhancer. I feel like the more I look, the diamonds being on top and the bottom of the solitaire may not look as good as another option they have where it was open on the top and bottom but still had the diamonds around that started where the diamond stops. And the bands on top of bottom look so much thicker. They are supposed to be sending them off to be saudered together but I’m thinking since it’s the weekend and tomorrow’s a holiday they probably have not been sent them out yet and if I make a last minute decision quickly, I may be able to change my mind! I don’t want to stress my fiance out but I don’t want my ring to look gaudy either. I’ve attached a picture I took at the store on my phone..don’t mind my pudgy looking finger! 🙂 Please let me know your opinions. I really don’t want to lose the beauty of my engagement ring!

Oh hun, I think your ring is beautiful! It sounds like you’re feeling rushed. My advice would be not to get the rings soldered together. You’ll feel less pressured and can take the time to decide whether these bands are right for you or if you’d prefer something else. Also, then you can play with the look of you (gorgeous!) e-ring over time – you can always change the bands.
The bands are a little thick but I don’t think that looks bad – it’s just a question of taste and what suits you. I think you should try some more bands. Try thinner bands, and try bands with different set beads (grain, pave, etc).
Maybe look at the PriceScope forums and search for ‘princess cut solitaire with wedding bands’ for some inspiration? Your fiance won’t mind, I’m sure he wants you to be sure about this! Good luck!

I think your princess would stand out more with only one band on the bottom. That way your center stone would still go past all the metal. I like the thickness of the bands individually with your solitaire, and I don’t think that looks bad. But if you want a band that is the same width as the solitaire, then you should get one like that. Don’t get them soldered together until you’re really really sure!

Thanks for the opinions. I actually decided the next day that I was just freaking out as I normally do about any major decision and I love the ring I chose so I’m keeping it! The picture doesn’t even do it justice.

I love the ring. I’m glad you decided to keep it.
