    @LadyAprill:  DH doesn’t know anything about jewelry!  I picked it out myself for sure 🙂

    We had mine custom made so I love it! I haven’t gotten comments IRL myself but my FI has had coworkers and my FMIL tell her they adore my ring. So that’s always good to know lol

    I had found one while browsing and thought I loved it. My then boyfriend was very skeptical after reading the reviews. He was right. I went browsing with my mom a bit later and the instant I saw my engagement ring, feel in love with it. It was exactly what I wanted. The minute my now husband saw it, he just went “Yep, that’s it.”

    I showed him pictures of what I loved most and he had my dream ring designed. So my very first thought when I saw it was “it’s perfect!”

    @LadyAprill:  I didn’t help pick it out, but we’ve been together for 8 years with him picking out jewelry for me and he knows my tastes. He knows I like simple and classic. I did tell him I prefer not to have yellow gold. And it was STUNNING! it’s 2cts so my first reaction was “it’s huge!!” I couldnt believe it…and I love it 🙂

    @LadyAprill:  Yep. At first I was frustrated, because he was like “I don’t know. I don’t like the reviews.” He was right and loves to remind me of it lol! Here is my beautiful set. Your ring is gorgeous!

    @LadyAprill:  I chose my ring (with input from my FI) so I knew what to expect but it had been months since I saw it IRL so I was still a little surprised.  I had also never seen it in all white gold because the ring in the store was rose and white gold and the picture online was yellow and white gold.  It was prettier than I remembered and seeing it in all white gold made it seem a like a totally different ring.

    I loved it! It was my dream ring. FI and I had gone ring shopping in the past and I fell in love with two rings. He did the rest 🙂

    We came across the setting the one time we went together so he could see what we liked.  I was adament I was fine with a L/M diamond as long as it was 3x So I could get a 1.5 ct (Knowing our budget) Well when he finally went on his own to get the ring he Picked a .85 F color.  My minimum was 6mm and it came in at 6.14. But it looks AMAZING. The ice colorless with the yellow gold is stunning.  It seems he knew better then me!

    my first thought upon seeing it was 1) holy shit 2) it’s so big 3) it’s SO white

    I loved it, but to be honest I was worried how it would look because we ordered it online. No matter how many high-def photos were on the jeweler’s site, I still didn’t know exactly how it would look IRL.

    Luckily I loved it.. I blew me away. Even nicer than I expected!

    I gave my husband a couple guidelines when he asked what I liked (ie: I like vintage/art deco styles, etc) and he picked out my ring.  Absolutely love it!
