I love my ring. It’s yellow gold with a blue sapphire and halo of diamonds. It’s also a (smaller) copy of Princess Diana’s ring. I was on holiday with a friend in Jaipur, India in November 2008 when I saw this ring in a shop – I emailed a picture of it to The Groom and he said ‘get it!’. I, of course, obliged, and spent the next couple of weeks guarding it while travelling around India.
But I’m having issues trying to find a wedding band that fits it.
The problem is there is no space underneath the crown-thing (sorry, I don’t know any technical terms when it comes to rings!) for a wedding ring to sit flush against the e-ring.
I’ve been to several jewellers, chain stores and boutique. One has suggested a plain gold band made very thinly on the top so it can sit under, but that might wear it away over time. Another has suggested a curved band to sit around it, but I feel that looks bulky.
With 3 months to go I need to decide ASAP! Any suggestions? I was originally thinking, ‘maybe I don’t need a wedding band!‘, but my MOH pointed out ‘the wedding band shows you’re married, you’ll look forever engaged otherwise’. The Groom said ‘but you’ve already got a ring! Why do you need another?’. Unbelievable 😉
The wedding ring is a tradition I want to keep, I just need to find one!
