    Wedding ring dilemma

    Went shopping for wedding rings today. As anticipated my hubby to be managed to find a stunning ring pretty easily. For me on the other hand, its proven to be a much more difficult task.

    I have a twisted engagement band with a round cluster of diamonds. Because of this most wedding rings do not fit/go with the engagement ring.

    I finally found one I love within budget, but it hs stones. I work in healthcare and can only have plain wedding bands whilst at work. So my options are:

    • Buy this beautiful ring with the stones set in and buy a plain band which I can wear at work as well. Effectively having two wedding rings (but one which I wont have to worry about it getting scuffed, dl with alcohol gel or lost at work, and one which I will wear every other time).
    • Spend more than I can afford to get a custom made plain wedding band that will complement my engagement ring and I will be able to wear at work.

    Has anyone had any similar experience of having 2 rings or having a similar dilemma. What conclusion did you come to. I am super torn and not sure what to do.

    Honestly, I would spend the extra to get a ring that you can wear all the time. I don't know what your budget is, but the Birmingham jewellery quarter is meant to be very good, and I think there are also some workshops where you can make your own ring! 

    Do shop around, as I've seen a lot of people on here say they've had custom rings which have been surprisingly well-priced.

    Good luck! x

    Personally I am having my ring made as I have a unique design but also to incorporate the gold from my dad's wedding ring (he passed away in 2015) so it will have a lot of meaning too.

    Could that be an option for you? If you have your own 'old gold' this can help reduce the cost from a lot of jewellers.

    Not sure where you are but my cousin is a jeweller and is making my ring - let me know if you want her details and I'll pass them on.

    I think having 2 wedding rings slightly defeats the point of having it and you'll risk losing one. I agree with above posters, get one made that works for work and home.
