70 days til the wedding….and today we accomplished something BIG! We headed over to Shane Co. this morning and thought we would just browse their selection of wedding bands and get an idea of what we both liked. We ended up purchasing both of our bands!
We decided on Mr. H’s within a good 15 minutes…and I can gladly say I picked out this beauty:
Actually… I can’t find a picture of his band but it looks very similar this band. 14K White Gold. Very classic and bear-y nice.
Choosing my wedding band took a little longer than 15 minutes… I think it was close to an hour before we made a final decision. The problem (well, its not really a problem – more like the reason it took so long) is that my engagement ring is very unique. Mr. H designed it himself. He bought it from Shane Co., but almost every jeweler that saw my ring today said they’d never seen one like it. =0) My setting looks something like this…but with a sparkly Princess cut diamond set between the prongs:
The way the princess cut diamonds are turned on their sides, making “diamond” shapes, made it difficult for us to find something that looked right alongside it. When Mr. H picked out this band though I fell in love:
I think that the combination of the Round and Baguette diamonds look amazing against the “diamond” shaped Princess cut stones on the band. Also, the Baguette diamonds are square, like the solitaire Princess diamond sitting on top of the setting. We are both super excited to be able to cross Wedding Bands off of our To Do List.
