    I was thinking about the same thing, and someone suggested to me that I get a band and wear it on my right hand - then you wouldn't need to worry about having too much on one finger....I'm not sure if I'll do this, but just an idea! I don't think there are any set rules, so you can do whatever is best for you.

      Is your ring Moissanite? That's what mine is. I love it!! It's so sparkley. People always say "wow your diamond has so much fire" and I tell them what it is. A lady even came from across a store once to ask where I got my ring. I also like that it's lab created in the town I live in.

        Yep, it's moissanite! I heard about Moissanite a few years ago and no one knew what I was talking about. but now they even sell it in department stores. All my friends thought i was crazy to not want a diamond, but I just couldn't see spending that kind of money when we were trying to save for a house, pay off credit cards and student loans, etc.

          Mine even came from the same company as yours. I started looking at them in the Fall of 06 & there were not a lot of places that sold it. Now, I see moissanite signs all over the mall. I hope their sells continue to increase. It's a really great product. I love that they are so inexpensive, but still something that will last. I stopped buying diamonds a couple years ago so it was either going to be a moissanite or a sapphire.

          Where did you get your sterling silver band? I'd like a little band to wear when I don't want to wear my e-ring. I have my mom's wedding band & it fits me, but it's really thick. Then I have the band that came with my ring, but it needs to be resized. Mike ordered my ring too big. It is a curved band through & I'd rather just have a straight one to wear alone.

            Your ring is beautiful all on its own. I do not think a band is necessary. I have a 3-stone princess cut ring and have the same problem as you as far as the middle sticking out. My FI really wanted me to get a band so I did and now I will be wearing me e-ring on my right hand. At times though, I am sure I will wear my e-ring on my left hand and ditch the band.

              I found my ring at Silver Depot, it's 3mm.

                  You're ring is gorgeous! It does look a lot like mine!! I wasn't sold on my band at first; I really like the one you have on yours. The jeweler that my FI had my ring made by suggested to him that this size band can be altered with side diamonds inserted on to it later if I wanted. Actually, now that I think about it, I would probably spend the $$ on that than buying a wedding band!

                      I actually got FI 2 rings from there - one black titanium and 1 silver titanium! I only paid $20 for 3 rings and shipping! I love a deal : )
