It just wasn't ME

My issue wasn’t with plain bands. It was with diamond or diamond look-a-like rings. I’ve adored them, drooled over them over the years, and when we went ring shopping they just weren’t me. I didn’t feel right in any of them. They just weren’t me. And I really did want to love them (on me), but couldn’t. The second I slipped on a sapphire I felt like it was me, and when I finally put on my ring that I have now I knew it was it.

@Devyn-Diana:  That is just gorgeous. It’s good that you found something your both happy with.

My FI originally proposed without a ring (engagement rings aren’t a thing in his country) and after about a week I couldn’t take it any more – I told him I had to have a ring for symbol value. It didn’t have to be expensive, I would have been happy with a no stone silver ring, but I had to have a ring as a symbol. So I totally understand you.

We just had plain white gold bands starting out.  I always knew I would get a ring someday, and I did!  There is nothing wrong with wanting a ring and now, you have yours.  It is beautiful!  Congratulations!

@Devyn-Diana:  I can’t imagine not having something blingy on my finger. I think my e-ring as well as my wedding band should be blingy. My FI ring even has some flare. No bling, he would have a fit! However, I did not want him with the plain band either. It has a tribal design, we debated on this and the camo dipped ring but ultimately decided on this. **See below**

Sorry, I really need to get a phone with a better camera.
