I finally got THE ring :)

So after much thinking, I realized that the double-bling look (diamond band on engagement ring and diamond wedding band) was a bit too much for me. I had 100 days to return my diamond band to the store, so I did that after 2 weeks of "sleeping on it." 

Had a bit of drama when trying to find a plain white gold band because they didn't have anything in the store that I liked and the lady thought I was nuts. I just knew what I wanted. A 2mm white gold band that is the same thickness (height wise, how it stands off the finger) as my engagement ring.

I ended up not buying from them but instead getting it custom cast by a custom jeweler nearby. It was perfect first shot. I probably spent all of 10 minutes in their store total for both trips-- the one to commission the piece and the other to pick it up.

It's perfect! I love it! And it doesn't hurt that it was $1,400 less than the diamond band ;)

I think it sets off the engagement ring perfectly :)


p.s. ignore the ugly fingernails. I got a manicure minutes after I took this picture. -oops!-

    It looks great together.  I'm glad you're really happy with your set now.  I had the hardest time finding my matching band height wise.

    <div>I don't know why that was such a hard concept to understand! They kept trying to sell me bands at the other store that sat so much lower than my e-ring. It just didn't look right. Happy to hear I'm not the only one :)</div>

    Must feel good to have that all taken care of! I plan on getting something very plain myself. With such a big engagement ring it'd look odd to have anything but simple. I think I'm going to have to have mine made, too due to the shape of my engagement ring. It's either going to have to be thin enough to slide under the spiral of diamonds or it's going to have to be curved to set up right against it. I'm thinking the sliding under is going to be best.
