That is going to be so pretty!


Boyfriend or Best Friend and I went and looked at rings this week, and he is going to design it himself. He wants me to show him the style I like and he is going to go off of that. I keep going back and forth about what I want! I really think I want one that looks like this:

And other times I want a more simple, traditional type! It is stressful because I want it to be perfect!


The other stressful part is HE wants to design it, so I don’t want to give too much input, but I am also a perfectionist!

I know that feeling… We aren’t creating a completely custom ring but we have asked for changes to be made to a ring from a small jeweller who lives the other side of the world! I’m super stressed because the reason we have done it this way is because I can’t find the ring I want locally… which also means I have never tried it on!! And I will not have a wax version either to check. So so nervous and excited! (We aren’t officially engaged yet either so I can’t tell anyone about it!)

@M1978: I found it on PriceScope, here is the link to the thread: http://www.pricescope.com/forum/show-me-the-ring/1ct-in-tiffany-swing-setting-t135239.html

I also found a ring similar at Jared’s it looks like this


We both really want the actual ring and the timing to be a surprise, so we are looking at rings now and don’t plan on actually getting engaged til at least next fall (when we will both be out of school and have had jobs hopefully for a few months). It will probably drive me crazy!

So, we don’t want it to be like okay, now I know the ring is ready! Propose! hahaha. Plus, I really like the thought of him doing it. Our compromise is that we want to talk to the designer together and then the fellas will take it from there!

@M1978 That ring is amazing.  Yellow gold is classic and I think it is going to turn out beautifully.  I wouldn’t worry.  I love yellow gold, don’t worry, I think you are making an excellent choice!

It’s absolutely gorgeous!!!!

I had a similar reaction. We had my ring designed…definitely not traditional. I loved the concept but didn’t know how the ring itself would turn out, so I was nervous. Here’s the finished product:
