The band I was looking at today had small princess cut diamonds that matched up (in positioning) with my ER.

JaimeLynne - Have you guys been to Robbins Bros? I know there is one in Dallas...they have SO MANY SETTINGS. So, if nothing else, it will give you a chance to try on everything from their solitaire settings to super detailed Tacori settings...just to see what you like. I ended up finding my dream ring there (actually FI found it while I was wandering around, completely overwhelmed). If you choose to buy there they will find diamonds within your price range with varying elements and let you pick your favorite. We looked at rings at the Houston location but FI bought the diamond at the Dallas location, overall our experience there was wonderful.

Jaime, that's so exciting! I do have to say tho that I like your original set A LOT! I have a solitaire, and I adore it, but if I went any blingy-er it would be just like your original. So pretty!

I also got a different ring after proposing. Marc initially wanted me to pick my own setting so he found a jeweler that allowed him to pick the diamond and she put it in a simple white gold setting. Then after the proposal, we went back down there to pick the setting. I printed a couple things online and she replicated it (with a few changes) for me. So really, I got a whole new ring after the proposal too. I like Jen's idea to find your diamond first, then pick the setting. Get exactly what you want.

Hi juji! Yes, we are definitely going to Robbins Bros! We were thinking of checking them as well as the Diamond Doctor out - do you happen to know anything about them? That huge Robbins Bros store looks like SO much fun - I can't wait to check it out! elefant.gif

Thanks Abbie. I like it too, especially the ER by itself but paired with the WB it's just a little too blingy and I don't like it with a solid white gold band. The baguettes are a bit of a pain too - difficult to clean. Overall though it is really pretty... and sparkly! wink.gif

I haven't heard anything about Diamond Doctors but Robbins Bros is SO fun! My FI even had a good time (I think he was dreading it). When we walked in we were greeted at what looks like a hostess stand at a restaurant...you get a guy that tells you about all of the settings and helps you out. This was great for us since it was our first time ring shopping...you guys may like it better if you just wander, but no matter what it is FUN! Oh - and make sure you and your FI go to the bathroom...I know it sounds weird but the Houston one had really awesome bathrooms - but I won't give it away :)

Jaime,

Why not take one of your stones and have it moved into the new ring? Then you could take the old band, put some CZ's in it for when you travel. It would be less expensive than buying a whole new ring with stone, and it gives you a backup ring for situations where you might not want to risk damage/theft of your real ring.

 

That's what we did---- We got a really good deal on the center stone and just moved it to a new band, so it only wound up costing us the price of the new band and resetting fees. (about $1500 total)... we saved probably $4000 by re-using the diamond.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
