I am beyond excited!!

I just posted last October that my hubby got me a new setting w/ anniversary ring for our 12th anniversary. Well, after only a few short months, the bands were getting seriously chipped, dinged, scratched etc. and well, that's what we get for going to the discount jewelry store, I guess?

And while that lovely solitaire thrilled me for awhile, I really miss the side bling and while I've had 3 wedding sets over the years, the only one that I felt was truly "me" ended up causing an allergic reaction (how I learned I was allergic to nickel. LOL) and the other sets were based a lot on price.

So now we're expecting our 5th child and our local jeweler (a very reputable one) held his annual semi-mount event today, so between Mother's Day and the upcoming birth, we decided to go in and find yet another set, and this should hopefully be my last. :)

The good thing is that it's totally me! Antique, migraine, just enough sparkle, feminine, etc. The matching band was actually custom made to match.

Anyway.....it's so versatile and I can't even remember what the total carat is, but I know that all the diamonds are bright white and it's lovely!

I have three choices: The e-ring w/ the matching band, which is GORGEOUS!!! But not sure if it's suitable for everyday wear. I always like to keep a plain band for when I'm out doing lots of heavy work, out shopping with the children, etc. BTW the matching diamond band even looks lovely on its own! So I thought I could wear it on my right hand, if I decide to wear the e-ring with a plain band. Sometimes I think a plain band can help bring out the sparkle of diamonds. But sometimes it doesn't.

Anyway, three choices: e-ring w/ matching band.
e-ring with a plain 2.5 mm band.
e-ring with a 3 mm band (yes there does seem to be a difference).

Here are pics:

I can only post 4 pics, so I'll just post those for the poll. :) I'll try to add on the detail shots of the e-ring soon. :)

Can I just say the yellow gold looks gorgeous on your hands. I prefer the set with the plain wedding band 2.5mm. Congrats

Thanks :)

There are so many rings out there in white gold and I love them, but can't wear them. :( I was afraid he wouldn't have enough yellow gold options, but he had the one. :)

Very pretty! It reminds me of Tacori a lot, and they do make beautiful rings. Congratulations, and I hope this one works out
perfectly for you.

I like it with the matching band - you could always have a plain band for days you didn't want to wear the diamonds.

I love the contrast of the white diamonds to the yellow gold - gorgeous!!

Matching band to go with the e-ring. Buy a plain band (3-4mm) just to wear when you don't want to wear your set. Beautiful set!

I like both the matching band and the 2.5mm plain band. Would it be possible to get both? :naughty:
