Congrats : ) I like the sapphire set. It’s simple without being plain – kind of what I like.

We’ve been looking at rings for a few weeks. I think I want moissanite; however, I have found some cheaper rings with real diamonds that I like as well. The problem is that they are silver. I’d like to stick with gold, but I’m really liking this one silver set at the moment ( especially the price ). My SO has no problem with moissanite, but he has a problem with silver.

I really like what you chose so much better! Very pretty. I also have a conflict-free ring ;). My FI was on board with my choice, but he chose the actual ring. I liked what he chose a lot more so that’w what we got.

I let him take the lead and only provided input when asked because I really wanted it to reflect that it was from him… I knew I would be very happy with it even if I gave no input at all. However, he did end up asking for my input more and more throughout the (long) process and in our case we turned out to have really similar tastes to each other. I think it helped in my case that I had not really thought about what kind of ring I wanted beforehand (aside from wanting it to represent him and his choice), and I also don’t really care at all about what’s “in style” or “dated” at the moment, so I really just came into it with fresh eyes. In the end he actually designed the ring and it’s nothing like what’s popular at the moment, but to me it is simply perfection.

Thanks! I don’t like to post photos of it for privacy reasons b/c its a one-off (since he designed it) but it’s a round brilliant diamond in a yellow gold setting with some melee decorations.

I like what you chose a lot better too. 

The last thing you want is to be one of those girls that hates her ring. You are wearing it forever, so if there is a chance you can have a say in it, tell him.

Pretty rings!!!

SO actually talked me into something different! Well, sort of. I always assumed I would have a diamond e-ring. I didn’t know anything else was really an option. But SO asked if it had to be diamond. He thought something with color would be more interesting and unique. So now we’re getting a purple sapphire and I’m very excited about it. Purple is my favorite color–I’m a little obsessed. So I think this ring will be more me than any diamond ring I could’ve gotten. It’s like he knows me really well or something!
