I’ve had kind of a weird turn-around on wedding bands. Before I was engaged, and even for the first few months I was, I really didn’t like them. I loved the look of engagement rings, but wedding bands always looked clunky to me. After B’s and my first shopping trip to look at band options in December, I even declared that I would go band-less.
But then….. I dunno. I just changed my mind. Random! I set on a search for a 1/2 eternity platinum pave band to match my engagement ring. I wanted it to be thin but not TOO thin. Blingy but not TOO blingy. I tried on like 20 different bands and none of them fit. I was the goldilocks of wedding bands.
I found one I LOVED at Diamond Cellar, but it cost about double what I was hoping to spend, so I took my search online. On Blue Nile I found a ring that looked like the exact same thing. Same width, same number of diamonds, same carat weight– score! I ordered it and thought I was done.
But later that night I saw this other one. I had seen bands like it before and I thought they were awesomely unique. I just had to try it. So um… I ordered that too.
Love the 30 day return policy. Seriously.
They both came today and…… I love them both!! Now I have a hard decision to make.
And I do like how it looks on its own better than the first. But I really don’t plan on wearing it alone often and I still like the other one alone (just not QUITE as much).
Decisions decisions. To match or not. Blingy or unique. I don’t know… But I have 29 days to decide!
