    I absolutely adore my ring, but I custom designed it, so I should. FI and I have opposite taste in jewelry, so he proposed with a white gold and diamond RHR, and let me pick my own ering. He’s a smart man, though I would have been happy with anything he chose, if he’d decided to go that route!

    @Arshim:  I picked it, I love it. Do I sometimes wish I was a gazillionaire and could afford a MASSIVE rock? Sure. But in reality, my 1.3 carats is plenty big 🙂

    I picked out my ring online. FI and I went into the store together for me to try it on to see how I liked it in person. I tried it on first and it was “THE ONE” haha. I tried on a couple after for fun, but I knew that my ring was the one for me. Sealed

    I shopped with my FI and picked out my own ring from about 4 different RB solitaires of different qualities, colors etc.

    I started by picking out what shape I wanted, so we went to about 6 stores to try on shapes. Then once I narrowed down to a RB, I started looking online but my FI really wanted to see the diamond in person.

    We found a diamond broker in San Antonio one day on a whim, walked in and saw about 4 rings and my e-ring fit the bill perfectly. It was a much larger size than we thought we could afford, and I was absolutely thrilled to be able to get a diamond that large on our budget.

    H color, SI clarity, 2.4 carats, RB solitaire in a 4 prong setting.

    *** I would like to eventually go up to a platinum 6 prong setting for durability, but I voted that I absolutely love my ring because I consider that a pretty minor change.

    I didn’t pick out my ring — it is tiny and simple with a beautiful diamond. Can’t complain (Even though I’m not a diamond fan, my husband picked it out and that’s all I want.)

    It’s not “ME in every way.”

    It’s “US in every way.”

    That’s what makes it perfect. If it was a ring I picked for myself, I doubt I would really care about it much. In fact, all my other rings I picked for myself. They’re very pretty. And as far as my heart feels about them? ho hum. When I see my engagement ring, I see my FI’s thoughts and efforts, come to fruition. It represents his love for me. Not just my own taste.

    This is my ring set. I love it very much and the engagement ring looks stunning on its own. The wedding band looks too plain for my liking alone, so I always wear both rings.
