1. How long have you and your SO been dating?  We’ve been dating two years.

 2. How old are both of you?  We are turning 22 in three months.

 3. How long have you been waiting?  I’ve been “waiting” as in we started discussing marriage and engagement in specifics last December, but I knew not to expect a ring until around this month at the earliest, so now I am in the real stretch of waiting where I know it is coming soon!

 4. Do you have a timeline (if so, what is it)? His timeline is “within the next few months.”

 5. Have you discussed or looked at rings with your SO?  I have discussed it with him to an extent, but I didn’t get incredibly detailed because I wanted him to pick it out (it will mean more to me if he picks it!) I told him I wanted white gold and a diamond, nothing too gawdy, and gave him my size.  I also had a few rings on Pinterest and made sure my mom knew what I liked so she could help him out if he asked.  I told him if he had absolutely no clue what to get me that I would give him more details, but otherwise I wanted to leave it up for him to pick… And now he has the ring picked out!  Now I just have to wait. 🙂

 6. What ring do you want? *Post a pic if you want*  I want a white gold ring that has a 1-1.5 carat diamond (round, cushion, or princess), and I would love if the band had something that makes it a bit unique. (like a twist or special detailing)

GirlyGirl24:  

1. How long have you and your SO been dating? 3 years in November

2. How old are both of you? I’m 25 and he’s 26

3. How long have you been waiting? we’ve been talking about it a year but waiting 3 months since we first looked at rings

4. Do you have a timeline (if so, what is it)? For waiting- no, I’d wait for as long as he needs. Timeline for getting married- we’re hoping Christmas 2015

5. Have you discussed or looked at rings with your SO? Yes, out of the blue he asked if I wanted to look at rings when we walked past a jewelers one day. While we were there we saw one we loved but I thought it was crazy money and would much prefer we put it towards a deposit for a house. That’s when I discovered moissanite and how beautiful it is. It means we can get the ring we both love but for a 3rd of the price.

6. What ring do you want? This is the computer design of what we’re having made. It’s a 1.1 carat moissy with diamond pave halo. My SO asked my parents for permission to propose on Monday and I know the ring is due to be ready for collection sometime over the next week so hopefully that means it’s coming this month, I could burst with excitement!

 1. How long have you and your SO been dating?

about two years!

 2. How old are both of you?

I am 21, he is 25.

 3. How long have you been waiting?

It seems like we have been talking about marriage since day 1, but I have only been seriously “waiting” for about 6 months or so!

 4. Do you have a timeline (if so, what is it)?

I would say within the next 6 months, hopefully sooner!

 5. Have you discussed or looked at rings with your SO?

Yes! We are hopefully going to get to design one together, but if not he would still do great because he knows exactly what i like!

 6. What ring do you want? *Post a pic if you want*

I could’nt pick just one favorite to post a picture, but I want a cushion halo with a round center stone. Having trouble deciding between straight, split, or twisted shank though!<br style=”box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0px; padding: 0px; max-height: 1000000px;” /><br />

1. How long have you and your SO been dating? a little over 2 years

 2. How old are both of you? both 28

 3. How long have you been waiting? about 6 months

 4. Do you have a timeline (if so, what is it)? he says “next year”… so could be January, could be a long way away! I would love to be engaged before spring…

 5. Have you discussed or looked at rings with your SO? nope.. not really. I’ve just told him that I don’t want him to spend a lot, and if he wants to get moissanite rather than a diamond, that’s fine with me.

 6. What ring do you want? *Post a pic if you want* I -think- I would like a petite pave round halo… but I haven’t tried rings on so I don’t know how it would look on me. I’d be happy with whatever he got me. 🙂

1. How long have you and your SO been dating?

5.5 years!

 2. How old are both of you?

24

 3. How long have you been waiting?

A couple of months

 4. Do you have a timeline (if so, what is it)?

Proposal after I finish my postgraduate degree which is end of this year! Then marriage within 6-12 months. We are currently house-hunting and both work so just a matter of finding our first home 🙂

 5. Have you discussed or looked at rings with your SO?

Yes yes! Neither of us were much inclined towards diamonds, we both wanted something different and unique that we both enjoyed looking at. We gravitated towards coloured stones and ended up with a 1.5ct ruby.

 6. What ring do you want? *Post a pic if you want*

We are having it made. It will look like something very similar to my avatar. But with a ruby oval center and diamond accents, set in yellow gold.

1) We’ve been together 3.5 years. 

2) I’m mid twenties, he is late twenties. 

3) I’ve been waiting about a year.

4) It is a bit of a wider timeline. A proposal could be anywhere from mid October, and then a soft sort of deadline for next spring, April/May?

5) yeah we’ve talked about it! I have always wanted a purple center stone ring. However SO has an hierloom diamond ring that was important to him and he wanted to use. So we are being total gluttons and getting both. He is proposing with the diamond and later on we will get the purple center stone ring. 

6) I have no idea what the hierloom will look like! It will be a diamond and an antique. That’s all I know really. For my purple ring, I’m going to get a purple sapphire or spinel center stone between 2-4 carats. Set in platnium with filligree and graduated French cut sidestones.
