So Fi was super sweet in going out and finding me the perfect engagement ring. He knew I wasn't crazy about the rings that were raised like this:
So he had the box enclosed with this design...
Which I LOVE, but the ring sits flush with my finger, so we're having a hell of a time finding a band that goes with it.
Our options are:
1) Have a band custom made to go around the ring. I'm not crazy about this idea for a few reasons: I have to leave my ring with the jeweller (call me crazy but I'm just uneasy about that idea), and it's much more expensive.
2) Try to find a curved band that fits as closely as possible. We found this one over the weekend, but I'm not crazy about it. Do the gaps look horrible??
3) Have part of the side box removed, so a regular band can fit under. Again, not crazy about this idea because it means leaving my ring with them AND defacing my beautiful engagement ring. Also, many jewellers won't do this if it's not their ring because their insurance doesn't cover it, so we'd have to go back to the place we got it from, which Fi wasn't too impressed with.
Has anyone else had this issue?? In hindsight, if I could have a do-over I would've just gone with the raised design!
What should we do??
