Did you have any specifics for your ring?

I had designs in my head that I liked, but we never talked about getting engaged and I never had any expectations for a ring.  I knew we were in it for the long haul and I didn’t need a piece of paper and a big party to prove our commitment to each other.

I just wanted something that sparkled and that’s exactly what I got.

@Little_Hedgy:  I always get in trouble for this one… My only request was that DH follow the 3 months’ salary guideline. We negotiated it down to three months after 401K contributions/insurance/taxes/etc., so it was really like 2 months.

But that means my ring was like 10K.

@Little_Hedgy:  I knew I wanted a halo, something vintage inspired, and I did not want yellow gold.  FH knew what I liked, and we had picked out my ring together.  I did have a brief moment where I wavered and thought I might want a solitaire but I couldn’t be happier with my ring.

Durable and nickel free were my only requirements.

I knew I wanted a white gold halo setting. I didn’t know much more than that until we started looking at rings together and I got to try them on. Then I knew I wanted a round stone set in a cushion halo, with the stone set low into the halo. He picked the ring that was both of our favorite.

He knew I wanted a real diamond and I was partial to cushion-cut centers. Other than that, I left it up to him… however, I did make it very clear that the ring meant a LOT to me- probably more than most bees for reasons I wont get into here. He knew it was a really important symbol and treated it with the respect I did. I ended up with something better than I could have imagined 🙂

I picked my own ring so I guess this is a little different.  I just had to have a halo once I tried on a rings and a white gold.
