My engagement ring is pretty. Please hold for some gratuitous Instagrammed ring porn:
Unfortunately, the wedding band that matches my ring boasts some odd architectural features that make it pretty weird looking:
I have no idea what Tacori was thinking with that odd shelf like design (and no, I don't have the band on upside down- it looks like the diamond would sit in that concave spot, but it doesn't).
I'm kind of relieved that I hate it. Paying for the Tacori name would probably bump us over our budget, and we'd have to send my e-ring away to California for a month to have the band made to match it exactly.
And now, I can have what I always secretly wanted: A shared setting half-eternity:
I felt guilty not wanting the matching band, but after seeing how ugly/expensive/annoying getting the "right" band is, I feel no such qualms. I love how classic this band is - equally perfect with my wedding dress or a white tee and jeans. I will wear the two on separate hands.
So we've found a jeweler to use, and we just need to make some budget decisions and figure how big
Mr. B will let me we can go.
Anyone else picking a wedding band that totally doesn't go with their engagement ring?
