I am new the this board and excited. Looking to see and share engagment stories and the rings that your FI blessed you with. Not too sure how this works so just gonna throw it out there. My FI and I have been together for quite some time 11 yrs to be exact and he finally popped the question in front of family on my moms 65th birthday. She had many tears of joy for the many presents she received but screamed for joy with the best gift of all. Lets just say we brought down the house in the restaurant that night. Manager provided us with free champagne and cake for the celebration. However the ring is the show stopper that make mouths drop. Can’t say I blame them cuz I’m in awe every time I look at my hand. My ering is a 1.75 carat center stone, F clarity w/ 55 carats on side. Band is an additional 80 carats worn with ering. Wedding band is to die for but will save the best for last. Please share your stories and pics of erings.
Gonna try to share pics but if they are too big.. PLEASE FORGIVE ME

Your ring is beautiful!
My FI proposed to me when we were on vacation in Maine. We live in California, so before we went to the east coast, we walked in the Pacific Ocean. Then we went into the water in the Atlantic at sunset. I turned around and he had taken his sweatshirt off and had a shirt on that said “I mustache you a question” (he has a mustache, so it makes sense haha). He got down on one knee and said “I’ve taken you from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean, and now I mustache you a question…will you marry me?”. It was adorable, and I of course said yes!
Here’s my 1.44 round stone set in a cushion halo. Just over 2 tcw. More beautiful than anything I ever thought I would have. I love my FI so much!

That’s amazing! I love your set, it’s gorgeous. I’m not technically engaged yet, but I have a “promise/pre-engagement ring” that’s a gorgeous aquamarine. I’m getting a custom cushion Tiffany Legacy style moissanite ring for my “real” set!

@mjwyatt84: Thank you so much! It was very sweet and I could tell he put a lot of thought into it. He also got me a shirt that said “I <3 mustache” on it and made me wear it to dinner after lol.
I love your set!

First off, CONGRATULATIONS !!
And a BIG Welcome to WBee and “the Hive”
Your Fiance did good… GORGEOUS Ring, and what a great Engagement Story to boot.
With my E-Ring and my W-Band I am closing in on 3 Carats TW… and that is pretty big by Canadian standards (where the norm is around 0.50 to 0.75 for an E-Ring)
I am truly blessed, Mr TTR is an AMAZING man and I can’t wait to marry him in the days to come…
