Ring…for now?

So the budget for our wedding bands is pretty miniscule, as in $350-$400 combined.  We found one that will fit in that budget for Mr. Fro Yo, but we’re still searching for mine. 

Here’s what I want:


And here’s what I can afford:


Both beautiful, but the first one is more my style.  And really what girl doesn’t like a little bling on her ring?  So, I jokingly commented that maybe we should just get a ring for me that was a “for now” ring, and then we could upgrade, or swap it out for a different one when our budget was a little more forgiving.  And as we thought about that, we didn’t think it was such a bad idea. 

But just to be sure that I couldn’t find a ring in my budget, I started searching all the bargain places like eBay, Amazon, Bluenile, and Overstock.  Surprisingly, Amazon had a large selection, but I don’t know that any of them was the one.  So we’re still considering the “for now” ring, but haven’t decided on what we should do yet. 

What do you think? Is it wrong to get married with one ring and then trade it in for a new ring?

if you are looking for an affordable metal, keep palladium or Argentium Sterling Silver in mind as well. And yes, it’s okay to upgrade down the road.
