    I would feel awkward about it. Like, if I were a guy it would make me think that what I got you wasn’t good enough. When my under $200 e-ring broke and I talked to Darling Husband about getting a new bridal set all together he was wary. He wanted me to have the ring he gave me as his promise for all time. We sat down and looked at the cost of repairs (more expensive than the ring) and found a great deal on a new bridal set. 

    I would talk to your Fiance about it as this can be a huge and touchy/sensitive thing for guys.

    I think as long as your Fiance isn’t going to feel like you wanting to make changes means he didn’t get you your dream ring, there’s no problem with it.

    I see no problem with it. Especially since it’s just a way to give the ring a little flavor when you want it. Since it’s not the ering (or the wedding band) I see nothing wrong with it. Maybe run it by your Fiance just to make sure he’s okay with it 🙂

    @papercrayons: If that’s the case, go for it! I see no issue with it and have heard of women changing their enhancers to make what they’re wearing that day. I think it’s a super cool idea and wish I had thought of it.

    I actually used my ring wrap as my wedding band. Would you consider that?  I like how the my wedding ring surrounds my e ring to make it one ring.  I think its a bit symbolic.  If you do, it could be bought with your wedding budget money, so techniquely both of you are paying for it.

    Oh, I always wanted a ring wrap for my wedding band.  So it wasn’t like I got it before and ended up making it my wedding band. I guess I didn’t like how the other wedding bands that I tried on somewhat competed with my e ring.  I wanted a band that still made ering the focal point.  (Since I do live my ering.)  That and I wanted something simple and not too flashy.

    Here is my ring wrap with e ring.

    ETA: Oh nevermind, I see that you can get ‘visually bored.’ LOL If you and him are fine with it, then I don’t see why it’s a problem.  The sales woman at the jewelry store told me that have a bunch of different enhancers for their rings.  I’m the type of person who doesn’t change my jewelry often.  But in your case, since it is for you, I would buy it with my money.

    @papercrayons:

    I’m an artist, so I get what he calls “visually bored”. LOL! He has come home to the furniture rearranged, the upstairs artwork is downstairs, cabinets have been repainted…

    I’m not an artist but I do the same thing (with furniture, rings, etc…) and feel bored with my rings.  Long story short, I wore the same ring for almost 10 years and got an upgrade this past year but once I was able to get a new ring, I went crazy and now can’t seem to find the one style I want to wear all the time.  So, I’m always changing what I’m wearing.  My husband doesnt’ mind, thankfully!

    I say go for it!

    My Fiance and I have already agreed that he’s buying my e-ring (obviously). And that I will be buying our wedding bands. We both pitch in with funds. He pays a bit more but I like being able to help out when I can.

    As long as your groom is ok with it, do it.  It’s just another piece of jewelry to jazz things up 🙂

    For my last wedding I used a wrap as my wedding band… and it ended up damaging my solitaire setting after only about a year of wear (and not all the time, as I had a plain white gold ‘work’ band).

    Good luck!

    My solitaire has a wrap, but we are using the wrap as the wedding ring. I’m waiting until the wedding day to get those extra stones.
