My friend and I were talking the other day about our rings. She said she would never have picked hers out herself, but that it has grown on her. She asked her husband for a “princess-cut solitaire, twisted”. He got her one with a princess cut center stone with a twisty design around it (not quite kite-set like she wanted) with diamonds all around it. She said that in a way, her ring is a symbol of how what she says isn’t always recieved correctly.
I thought it was cute, and I suppose a good lesson to learn from it! 🙂

that’s sweet! and in a way reminds me of my ring–i totally love it now but when i saw it the first time (actually before he proposed) i was a little surprised. my hubby didn’t want me to have any input into the ring, and i’m not sure i even would have considered the setting he ended up choosing (he had the center stone from an heirloom ring already) because it’s really modern looking, a solitaire in a tension setting, and just not something i’d imagined. but i totally didn’t care about that at all as soon as he proposed and fell totally in love with it. the wedding bands, that i chose, are very different–the tension setting didn’t work well with a band, so i wear it on my right hand and 2 stacked bands on my left (a plain and an eternity band)–but they complement each other well. and i love them anyway even if they aren’t exact matches
