We’re getting ours custom made by a jeweler in NYC diamond district. You can basically create anything you want. And it can be way less expensive than getting a “brand name” ring.

It sounds like maybe you should try some on.  I know my idea of what i liked in terms of rings changed dramatically, once i saw them on my finger.  We started off by going to a jewelry store with a good selection of rings, and we just tried on a while bunch.  It gave us an idea of what we liked and what we didn’t.  From there, if you don’t see anything that you are in love with, you should probably find a jewler to make you a custom ring that incorporates the various aspects that you like about the rings that you have already tried on.

I trieds on EVERYTHING in a jewelry store. Literally, ring after ring. I finally came across this one that I kinda liked: http://www.jared.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product1|10451|10001|-1|530636303|19061| and a friend was with me qand said “hey put another one on!” aqnd then i was like, sold on the sandwiched look. But not sold on this particular ring set. The jeweler suggested i put this one on, so that’s why i say try on everything =]. I ended up with a 7-stone shared prong set band….i got there b/c i tried on a 1.5 carat band, then a half carat (too small) and then a 1 carat (too big) and settled right in between, lol.

You still got some time. Our wedding rings were picked up the day before the wedding, LOL.

Post your ring and maybe we can help you out?

We went to our jeweler and I were talking about custom designing a wedding band because I thought the matching band to my ering had to much bling, but I ended up falling in love with it and getting it.

I looked, looked, looked…

This was my absolute favorite, but way out of our price range:  http://www.michaelcfina.com/engagement-wedding-rings/wedding-rings/michael-b-platinum-wedding-ring-MB1-40-98-01.html

Then I tried something similar to this at a local jeweler and liked how it was different:  http://www.whiteflash.com/wedding_bands/scattered-diamond-band_984.htm  But since I need to get it in platinum, was afraid that after the platinum gets matted out (like my ering is now), it would look too plain.

But after much debate, ended up going with a normal channel-set etternity band:  http://www.thefacetscollection.com/item.cfm?item_id=1208 — I hate that everyone has a band like this, but at the same time, it’s still a classic look, that would look great on its own.

(Fedex says it arrived today and I can’t freaking wait to get home and try it on!!!)

I’d look online if I were you, as you might be able to find a more variety of designs, and most of these stores have a 30 day refund policy.

Good reliable sites are:

(Hmmm, I’m not sure why my link to the scattered band at white flash doesn’t work, but if you click here:  http://www.whiteflash.com/wedding_bands/2.htm it’s the fourth one down.)
