@Sapphire-Dreamer:  what the what?! girl that ring is gorgeous! I love it! try and remember how it feels to be “waiting” and how much better it feels to be engaged 🙂 that usually killed any thoughts I had about wishing my proposal had been bigger or better. Mine was very very low key and was not really anything to talk about by other people’s standards. I think we all kind of have it in our heads that the proposal has to be this big production when really all that has to happen is that our beloved asks us to be with him for the rest of his life. That is so huge!!! so no matter if he was nervous and it wasn’t some huge production, its so so special!! congrats!

@Sapphire-Dreamer:  lol well FI actually said in his proposal “I love you so much and I know you won’t wait patiently so I came here today so I could do this now instead of dealing with the crazy lol”  awww hunny thats so sweet! He meant it in an affectionate way, as in “stardust I know how impatient you are so to spare us both the grief im gonna make this happen asap!” he knows me well lol. Sometimes men don’t mean things to come off the way they do. I don’t think it was meant to hurt your feelings that he said he didn’t think about it.

@Sapphire-Dreamer:  I can totally understand your feelings. But honestly that ring is absolutely gorgeous. I wouldn’t change a thing about it. 

My proposal started off with a text, “Will you marry me?” while my FI was sitting in the park next to me. I thought it was a joke, and I was a waiting bee who was becoming very annoyed. Then I said, “Would you stop kidding around, I find this annoying.” I would have liked to have heard those words out loud, for one thing. 

Also, your guy’s statement made me smile a little, “I didn’t think about it.” He sounds like my FI who says that allllll the time, about everything!  I got so irritated when we were first engaged because we were looking at venues and the conversations were going like this: 

Venue Operator: So when would you plan to have the wedding?

FI: Oh, I don’t know, I hadn’t thought about it.

Me: Sept 2013.

Venue Operator: And how many guests?

FI: Gee, I am really not sure, I hadn’t thought about it.

Me: 75-100.  

Then we would get outside and I would yell at him for embarrassing me and being an idiot.  But anyway, we got it all sorted, and I would just tell you to be easy on your fellow.  I think this is just the way some guys are, but it’s better to appreciate them for the things they do well, rather than dwell on the things they don’t.

 We are going wedding ring shopping this weekend and I am prepared for more of, “Do you want gold or platinum?” “GEE I REALLY DON’T KNOW, Mimi, can we come back later you think?”

New here.  You’re ring is gorgeous and different! Love that it’s sapphire.  Just remember that the ring is only a small token of all his love for you and you can always have an upgrade to an anniversary ring when you get married.

I’m sorry you’re having ring regret, but I think it’s beautiful.  The color of the sapphire is perfect.  Remember, the size of the ring has no bearing on the strength of the relationship, and comparison is the thief of joy. Don’t let other people’s rings steal the joy of your engagement!

It’s a beautiful ring!!! Love the square shank and how thick it is. A sturdy ring 😉 I love a three stone ring with a coloured stone in the center. If you want something bigger, have fun with wedding bands! Perhaps two diamond bands, one on either side, would bling it up.

It’s totally understandable to have ring envy! I certainly get it on occasion! For what it’s worth, I think your ring is freaking GORGEOUS. I especially love it with your nail polish.

Your ring is gorgeous. There is no need to be envious. What is meant for you is meant for you. It came from the man you love, that fact alone should make it the most beautiful ring in the world.

A lovely ring, very unique. Mine is very different too, to the extent that when we get married in Sept, it will no longer be my engagement ring as we can’t get a wedding ring to fit it for a good price!
