Oh the excitement is mounting every day...
I've been having trouble with bands because (a) my engagement ring was modeled after an antique, so it has a unique shape that doesn't really "go" with the typical bands that are out there and (b) I am really really cheap (errr frugal).
Apparently the cost of platinum is skyrocketing as the value of stocks and bonds are plummeting (I have no idea what I'm talking about here...does it sound like I do?) so rings have gotten noticeably more expensive in the past year. Lame. Thar goes thy budget.
So I found my lovely above when I was in NYC last week. It looks perfectly eclectic with my e-ring, not matchy and not clashy. I figure that if I was going to bust the budget, it might as well be on something that I love. Agree?
