I have gone a little mad. I just love him so much! I am on this crazy kick thinking I need to by my Wedding bands right now! (see wedding date above). I know I have plenty of time but I have seen my Fiance stare longingly at my ring and I know he wants one. So, since I was going to order a stunt ring from Berricle and spend about $50, why not order my Mr. Sapphire a Man-gagement ring for the same price from Zales.com & he can wear it for the next ….496 DAYS!
It is made out of Titanium, just like his Wedding band will be, but plain. We still do not know what the engraving will be for our wedding bands, so when deciding on an engraving I just put the day that we met and the day we are getting married (7 years, 2 months, 7 days).
The Mangagement ring
His wedding band
My Stunt ring
My wedding band
Engagement Ring (for reference.
The thing is, I wanted to wait until the anniversary of the day we met to give it to him…but that is 12 weeks away! I don’t know if I can be that patient. I will be able to pick the ring up today….and Mr. Sapphire is picking me up from work today (a special treat). I totally want to give it to him today but I know the impact will be greater if I wait until the date on the engraving.
Plus I know I shouldn’t be buying our real wedding bands until at least 2014.
HELP ME KEEP UP MY RESOLVE!

I think a man-gagement ring is a really nice thought if thats what he wants 🙂 And if you want to get your rings now so bad, go ahead and do it. You might even have them paid off before the wedding if you get them now! How nice would that be?

F-IT! I am giving it to him tonight!

🙂 This is awesome, I love it.
I’m jealous too, because I’ve been engaged for months and still have no man-gagement ring for my Fiance… which I found out within a few weeks of being engaged, that he would really like. And he keeps reminding me of his empty finger… (our pickiness is slowing us down).
Are you going to do any pomp and circumstance when you present it to him? I kinda feel like I should/want to, but not sure what. He already proposed and I already accepted, so no need to ask him. I thought about writing and memorizing a few lines that express my feeling for him, to say when I give it to him.

If he wants a mangagement ring, that’s a really sweet thing to do. Some guys don’t like the idea, while others are open to it.
Your ering’s gorgeous!

@Sapphire-Dreamer: This might be a silly question, but what’s a stunt ring?
I told SO that I’ll get him a man-gagement ring. He has a claddagh that he wears on his right hand that I bought him about 5 years ago while we were in college, so it’s pretty cheap. I found a really nice looking one that I thought he could use as a replacement (to wear on his right hand, but he does wear it on his right ring finger). I asked him if he would like it as a man-gagement ring, and he said yes.
Then he said: when do I get to have it? I said: when you get me one! lol (maybe that will light afire!)

One of my friends has a mangagement ring and he wears it every day. Some of the guys make fun of him for it but he takes it in stride. My Fiance would never wear one, but I can’t wait to see him in his wedding band. 11 and a half months to go!!!!

@jny1179 Why would they make fun of hime? How mean, poor guy 🙁
OP, those are all so nice! I especially like his wedding band 🙂

@joya_aspera: Why thank you or asking. He has a 2nd interview for a great job coming up next week, but I am going to be with my sick mom before hand and won’t see him before he goes. Today he is picking me up from work so we can go shoppinhg for an interview outfit for him. Tonight when we get home and he has layed out his clothes for the interview, I will take him I have one more thing I want him to wear to the interview. If we are not already there, I will take him into the bedroom (where he proposed to me) and present him with this.
@pineapplez17: A stunt ring is slang or a ring that you would wear if you didn’t want your “real” set to get ruined or lost. Most of the time it will be something that looks like your original ring, but in Sterling Silver and CZ or lab-created stones. I wanted to get a stunt ring because I was toying with the idea of getting an alternating diamond/sapphire band, but would hate to pay the $$ for a real one and end up not liking it. Plus I am already getting a diamond half-eternity ring as well as a plain white gold band to stack and think ANOTHER ring would be a BIT too much…so Berricle it is!
@MrsSnowMountain: I like it too. Thank you so much. the band is made from MINTERANDRICHTERDES on Etsy

glad you’re doing it tonight…my vote was for not waiting. Fiance wears an engagement ring too, and it coordinates with mine. we exchanged rings at the same time. he likes his so much that he’s trying to figure out the best wedding band to get so that he can stack them when we’re married, like i’ll do with mine. lol

Do it!!! I think its an awesome idea!!

@cardus: I love your coordinating rings! I am so glad Mr. Sapphire picked a ring with blue in it. I tried to sway him, just to make sure he didn’t feel obligated to have a ring that “matched” mine, but I was so glad when he affirmed that THAT was the ring he wanted. 🙂
I can’t wait to give it to him tonight! Is this how guys feel when they pop their questions?

@Sapphire-Dreamer: Gotcha! Well, I really like your stunt ring! I think it will look really pretty with your e-ring 🙂
Also, I like your FI’s rings. I really like the cohesive blue you have!
