I got engaged in January and I finally am deciding to show off a pic of my ring. Quick story first…
Fiances grandmother originally sent via ups her Grandmothers engagement ring. We live a few states away. It was around Christmas time when she sent it and long story short..UPS lost it (aka..someone stuck it in their pocket)..report filed..nothing happened..ring is gone. I had no idea about any of this but apparently my fiance was freaking out.
He got our jewler friend to make my engagement ring out of one of the pearls from a strand of pearls his mother owned (she passed away when he was young)..so..here it is! Overlook the fact that it was on the wrong way haha..this was taken soon after the proposal and I wasn’t sure which way it went =p. Plus we got engaged on a beach and I had a few too many rum in cocunuts.
Sorry for the extra large photo!

@kellyj23: Your ring is gorgeous. I wanted a pearl, but I was pretty sure I’d destroy it.

What a unique ring, it’s beautiful. And even more so because the pearl has so much personal meaning 🙂

I love pearl e-rings esp. since I read little house on the prairie the golden years. I want a pearl ring for my right hand. I cant believe the ring got lost, how devastating!
