I was trying to find a recent bling thread to post a piccy of my ring but then I figured i would just make one cos well, you can’t have too mny bling threads. I love this ring but I know it’s not very traditional, sometimes I have doubts about it but then I remember that I love it and it doesn’t have to be what other people expect of an e ring. Wpuld love to see other peoples piccies of less traditional e rings!

What a lovely opal! And yes, the first few weeks of my engagement there was a lot of hand inspection too.

@marzipanda: It is beautiful! don’t worry about not being “the ususal thing”–I had an opal engagement ring that was an heirloom, and it was lovely too.

I find that so strange, you can walk into a number of little stores in any countryish town around here and have a stunning array of natural opals to choose from. My grandmother has a milky opal e ring and I always admired it as a child so my fiance knew that was what I wanted. I especially love the tiny diamond to left of the main stone as I feel it still gives it the traditional twist.
