Hi! I have a princess cut sapphire with a surrounding square of diamonds at the "base", the sapphire is set rather high, which is fun. It’s cool since sapphire is my birthstone and diamonds are his 🙂

We, as in all the readers since the Bees have already done so, should post pictures of our rings (or necklaces, earrings, tatoos, etc) not to compare, but because it’s always fun to look at jewelry

I don’t think this is SO unusual but it is a bit more unique than the diamond solitare.  I have a three stone ring, the center stone is a light blue sapphire and the side stones are diamond.  All three are princess cut.  Actually, I’ve never seen another princess cut sapphire in a ring so maybe… 🙂

This isn’t "unusual" in fact I’m sure it’s quite common other then my friend who’s a jeweler, made it just for me – from scracth – I even have the wax outline that was used to create the mold for my ring 🙂

I found a picture in a magazine and he and FI made me what I wanted with the added details FI put in himself.

Sorry it’s A: such a big pic and B: a nasty knuckle shot…lol

Hi Yiska, how neat, I love your ring, it’s gorgeous! Ok, here is the only shot I have of it that’s hosted on a web page, and it is at a bad angle, sorry!

How’d you guys get such nice shots of your ring??? Everytime I try with my camera it end up looking blurry.

Mine isn’t unusual at all, but i just wanted to show off my bling bling….jk, sorta not really. =)

NorcalBride, the secret of taking ring shot is to not use the flash (you need natural light).  The stone will bounce the light from your flash back thus causing the blur whiteness.  My brother took the picture below with his fancy dandy camera without flash.

NorCalBride–use the Macro mode on your camera, use zoom.. unfortunately, it usually requires A LOT of light and will only turn out if you use flash which may wash things or get a reflection.

I don’t have an e-ring. I just wanted a simple diamond wedding band. So, I don’t get to wear a ring until May 31, 2008.

Sweeny–who is your friend that’s the jeweler and where do they have a shop?  That’s so cool that you got a custom ring!

MagnoliaDiva–If that’s what you wanted then GOOD!  I’m sure people ask to see the ring and don’t understand at all when you say you don’t have one.  I contemplated not having an e-ring too but in the end I decided that I wanted one…. I’ve heard it can be incredibly hard.

Yiska – 99% of the time when you say you are getting married, people’s eyes AUTOMATICALLY go towards your hand and when they see my left hand empty, they all day, "WHERE IS YOUR RING?!". I say, "I don’t have one" and then just look at them like, "WHAT?!"

I am 36 and he is 45. We are really not concerned what others think. LOL…we’d rather spend that money on something else. 

It isn’t "hard" more sore so bucking the "norm"……. people are FUNNY and SO pretentious. A ring does NOT define a marriage……
