    I’ll show you mine if you show me yours… Wink

    I didn’t have much of a dream ring in mind – though I’d always imagined something simple, preferably silver, with just a small stone (I’m not a fan of big, blingy jewellery – or the cost of big, blingy jewellery!). But my fiance got me (one basically like) this out of the blue, and I love it!! It’s a yellow sapphire with 0.5 carat diamonds on either side

    @NM32:  yeah I was very very happy when he agreed to buy it, I went in before we got engaged, just to see whether I liked it on my hand (he wanted me to have input and a say in the ring so he could make sure I loved it) and the ring I tried on fit PERFECTLY! I just knew it was meant to be ๐Ÿ™‚ Then a while later I took him in to look at it and see whether he liked it on me also, he did, then a week after that he went in to order it in my size. They said that the ring he bought would be the one they had on display, so the one I had tried on. I just love it so much, even now 6 months after we got engaged I can’t stop staring at it ๐Ÿ™‚

    What I wanted was over budget. Totally understandable.  I got something else and I love it.

    For some reason I always knew what I wanted. I made sure Fiance knew, and we picked it out together. Here is mine Smile

    We had my set designed together, so it’s exactly what I wanted.

    I never looked at rings with him really prior to the proposal, and I still couldnt tell you the cut, carat size, clarity colors etc about my ring! All I know he that he picked it, proposed with it, and I LOVE it!

    Before my grandmother died in 2001 she gave my mom two rings, one to be given to me and the other to my brother. Since I am the oldest I got to pick which one I wanted. I picked the setting with the round stone. I’ve known since then, that would be my engagement ring if the man in my life was cool with that. It was everything I thought an engagement ring should look like. It also held so much meaning to my family and I. I knew I would fret over new ring and wonder if the diamonds were blood diamonds, this way I felt I wasn’t introducing any new diamonds into the world. Luckily the SO now Fiance thought it was a lovely ring and respected the reasons behind why I wanted that to be my engagement ring.
