My wedding ring

I wrote about a week ago about "The Story of Us." You can read it if you haven't already. I mentioned that when we got married everything was kind of rushed and nowhere had a wedding band that matched my engagement ring.

My wedding band needed to be curved because my ring has so much going on, on the sides of it. I got a band that was curved and had round diamonds and baguettes. The diamonds on the band I bought don't go down as far on the sides as on my engagement ring. Also, the diamonds on the side of my engagement ring are channel set. The band I purchased is not channel set.


I know this picture isn't the best and its kinda hard to see exactly what's going on.

Matt cannot tell that it does not match but I can. I sent it off for an estimate at the store I bought both of my rings at about 6 months ago and nearly fell on the floor when they told me the price. I took it to another jeweler around then and they said that they could do it for almost half of what I was quoted. But my diamond protection plan and whatnot is not there so I was a little apprehensive about getting it done there.

So I went and talked to the boss lady at the place where Matt has bought all my diamonds about two weeks ago. She sent it off last week to a different custom jewelry maker. His price was less than both of the other estimates I have received.

Matt agreed to let me get it made. So my ring is in the shop. I'll have my matching custom band in about two weeks. When I get it back I will post before and after pictures. I have better pictures of the before on my computer at home.

Thanks honey. I love you. And I'm not going to look at or need any more diamonds for a long time.
