naturalflight: I love your set. I now have a similar set. I say now because lurking on these boards I have changed my mind over the past couple of years. I don’t think it’s envy necessarily but I just like pretty things. I am only sentimental about the band used at our ceremony that matches my husbands. I think you are probably like most women who like to look at pretty things. And luckily it looks like you have room to stack other bands so that might help too. Basically I think your feelings are normal and your rings are beautiful. There will always be newer styles though.

Thanks so much everyone! I feel better just reading the replies. I think a lot of you are right in that I like pretty things. I’ve stopped looking at ring threads a long time ago, but every so often I’ll be talking to someone and see their rings and think, “wow that’s very pretty!” I guess I just want more rings in my life, haha.
I’m glad to hear that people think the set works well! I bought them separately because I didn’t like the band the engagement ring came with. It curved around the halo and while it looks nice, I didn’t like how it looked on its own. I wanted a band that I could also wear on its own if I wanted to so I chose a 3/4 eternity band. We were offered a pretty good deal with one of the stores we went to, but they didn’t have the ring for me to try on. So I tried on the 1/2 eternity band and it seems good and we ordered it. But when we got our rings, I got super anxious because I didn’t remember it being that high. (The salesperson also remarked that she didn’t remember it being that high either so it got me pretty nervous.) I think I was driving my Fiance crazy thinking and Googling about it.
The logical part of me thinks that a lower wedding band wouldn’t match the engagement ring as well and I really like how it looks from above. And with them matching, I am probably more likely to wear them both all the time. We also just got it back engraved so I really don’t want to kick up a fuss at this point. My Maid/Matron of Honor also pointed out there will be other opportunities for rings too so I shouldn’t overthink so much about things.
Anyway, long story short: thank you 😀
