I am satisfied with mine- but I went shopping with my hubby to give him an idea of what I wanted.

Nope. Would’ve loved a twisty tie. I guess the ring wasn’t that important to me.

@lollypop: i understand what you mean… sometime’s guys are clueless and think oh she wouldn’t want anything that big it’s too large for her tiny hands… or something like that… can you buy a wedding band that has a wrap that makes it into a halo, or get one custom made to wrap around your band?

I’m happy with the size, but sometimes I wish I had a prettier setting. It’s sort of my fault because I never looked at rings before getting engaged and just told him what shape of diamond I liked. I didn’t realize there were so many different options for settings! when I started browsing wedding sites, I saw all the choices out there and really liked some of the fancier options.

I guess mine is small by traditional standards (it’s .80 carats) but I LOVE IT!  I’ve never been disappointed in it and super-glad that my guy didn’t go into debt to get it :o)

I’m totally happy with my e-ring, but I’m not a fan of the band FI got to go with it. I am a little frustrated, because he’s admitted that he knew I wouldn’t like it, but he got it “just because we had the diamonds”. But now, I can’t really ask for what I really want because we can’t afford it. So I’m going to have to just get a plain band for now and upgrade later. I guess I was just sad because I was looking forward to getting to pick out my own wedding band.

Although if I had to pick a ring before the engagement, I might have picked something else, but the fact that my FI picked and custom designed the ring himself that the ring is more meaningful to me than other rings.  I LOVE my ring..  Not disappointed at all because I know he did his best and put in so much thought and effort into it!  🙂

I am completely satisfied with my e-ring. However, I really wanted two wedding bands…one on either side of my e-ring…then the FI slipped and told me how much my rings cost and I shut my trap up about it and never mentioned it again….LOL. Since neither the FI or I believe in upgrading stones, settings, etc. he made sure he got something that I could wear forever without being what he calls “long-eyed” and lusting after somebody else’s ring.

This is the king of “DON’T GET ME WRONG” threads, 🙂 I love it.

 

Um, the short answer is yes. I gave my ideas and imput and hopes and dreams and desires to him, told him what I wanted, showed him pictures.

The ring I got could not be more different. It was my mothers, and she gave it to him to propose with, so that’s why there wasn’t any imput on my end.

I’m with you lollypop – doing my best to grow to love it. I try to get my head around the heirloom idea, but it kinda feels like yet another example of my mother meddling.

Nope! Sometimes I think it’s a little small by some people’s standards? Because it’s only .62 (i think) of a carat. But the setting is so much different than anything I have ever seen and I get complimented on it daily. The middle diamond is flawless, and gah …….

 

sorry, i was busy looking at it and forgot what i was saying.

I adore my ring!  For whatever reason I thought the side accent stones were larger… but i think it’s because with the center stone actually mounted they’re less obvious.. but like I said.. I am in love with and adore the ring.

I love mine. The sum total of the input I provided to my fiance was “platinum band” and he did the rest, and he did a fantastic job. Of all the rings I’ve encountered since receiving mine, I haven’t seen a single one that I prefer to my ring.
