just got engaged this past Saturday… and I haven’t been able to stop staring at my ring! i absolutely love it. i had an idea of what the ring would look like since we had gone to try on rings a few months back (i had no idea what i really wanted, only what i thought looked good on pinterest and on here!).
i *thought* what i wanted was a pave band, or a ring with side stones, but when i tried those on i didn’t love it on me (even though i love it on others). luckily my bf (now FI) urged me to try on some styles i didn’t consider, like rings with a channel set band! i loved it instantly. we had also agreed at the time that if he did get me an engagement ring with a channel set band, i’d want a matching wedding band for sure.
the ring is even more gorgeous in real life than i imagined, and i love the wedding band with it. i’m a newbee…. does one wear the wedding band under or over the engagement ring when worn together? i thought it was under, and i took some photos of them together since i figured why not, he had the band already!
another reason i’m glad we went ring shopping together, i finally got my ring finger sized! it’s a size 4 (a smidgen loose but nothing to worry about) and i probably would have guessed a size 5 since i’ve never worn a ring on that finger.
here is the engagement ring on it’s own from the dinner we went to after the actual engagement, totally in love with the sparkle.
and the next morning i decided to try on the wedding band as well! love the way it looks together.

@adoreprep: Congratulations on your engagement! Your set looks beautiful! You are correct, the wedding ring goes on bottom (like you’re wearing in the pic) so that it’s closest to your heart

@adoreprep: congratulations!! Your ring is stunning! Your man has got phenomenal taste! 🙂 also… The wedding band should be one the bottom… Traditionally it should be the closest ring to your heart…. Fun fact the left ring finger has the only vein that runs continuously directly to your heart.. That’s why your wedding/e ring are always worn on the left hand! 🙂
