So about that ring..

Remember a couple weeks ago I told you how I upgraded my wedding ring set and bought a beautiful new set? If you don't remember the discussion, here is a link. http://www.mylot.com/post/3154287/would-you-replace-your-wedding-rings The new rings were ready for pick up on Saturday, and when I saw them I was a bit disappointed. I guess I was expecting it to look a bit different when I picked the set out. This is the pic of the set... you see how there's too much space between the rings? I didn't expect that. Also the solitaire band is so much thicker than the wrap. I thought once they soldered it, that would take care of the gap and it would look nicer... but this is what I got. I wore it all day Saturday hoping it would grow on me and that I'd end up liking the set... but in the end I had to admit I just wasn't in love. Sunday hubby and I went back to the store and told them that I just didn't like this set. I picked out something new. One look at the new ring and I was instantly in love, without a doubt I knew it was going to be my ring! I picked out this gorgeous ring and a band set that was just to die for! It was quite a bit more expensive than the set I returned.. it maxed our budget and then some. In fact it was to the point I was ready for forgo the bands in order to make it affordable, as long as I got the primary ring that was the important part.. I can get bands later. But then hubby returned the new ring he just bought a few weeks ago to bring the price of my set down to fit our budget. Thankfully he still has his old ring so he is not ringless. I tried not to let him do it, but he took the sales girl aside and did it behind my back and by the time I knew what was going on and tried to object it was too late. Well the sales girl was impressed at his act of love anyway, lol. I can't wait until my new ring comes in and I can show you just how gorgeous it is!

From your photo (the ring you took back) was it 3 different rings, 2 bands & a solitaire. Can't wait to see your new ring ~ glad it worked out in the end. :)

Actually it's only 2 rings.. the bands are actually a single wrap.

Cant wait to see the new one, that one is a little odd with that gap, never saw one like that. That was sooo sweet of your husband.

That is a beautiful ring but your right, there is quite a gap between the stone and the wrap. You have to really love the ring you have or its not the same but glad you found one you really love. Mine is kind of like this but the wrap is a little wider and my ring is a sapphire with an oval stone which fills in any gap.

My husband's motto is you get what you pay for. You are right about your ring. All wrong. Your husband did a selfless act and can't wait to see the new ring. I'm sure it's perfect.

I think you'll love it.. I can't even describe it there's so much detail to it. It's got some blue stones on the side of the diamond, and lots of little diamonds going down the band of the ring. I can't wait to show you!

I think this ring is very pretty but right off the bat I noticed the gap between them and it seemed a little odd. I can't wait to see what the one you love looks like when you get it

Yeah, I think if the wrap were thicker and the gap weren't there I could have liked this one.. but the new one is just so much better!
