@heyitssamyrae:

heres a pic of mine…

 

dont get me wrong, i looove it. and i love that it was made in replica of my mothers, but its the just “Oh……you didnt want a diamond?” comment i get from EVERYONE that gets to me.

 

and i feel for you, for all the support the hive has to offer i have noticed some people get on their high horse about things and can really attack at what was ment to be an innocent disscussion. I wish people would really read boards carefully before they leave comments as they can be really hurtful!

but YAY for all the fantasitc, loving, helpful & supportive bee’s out there Smile

I have been so conflicted about my ring. At first, honestly, I hated it. I hated the design, the color, the style– it looked to me like something my mom would have picked out… if she had picked one out in the late 80’s. The only thing I liked about it was the most important thing– that it was an engagement ring! Oh, and also, the sparkle! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’m planning on getting a different ring when we have the wedding (Maybe sooner– Once I buy it, I don’t know if I’ll be able to wait to put it on!), and I’m thinking I’ll just wear A ring that will work as the engagement and the wedding ring combined. Lately I’ve been thinking that if I go with a split shank, it will kind of have the LOOK of an engagement and wedding ring, but we’ll only have to pay for the one additional ring, PLUS I won’t have to worry about welding them together or not welding them together or having them rub up against each other, etc. 

Anyway, now, after wearing my current engagement ring for about a year (We’ll have kind of a long engagement), the “dream ring” that I’ve been picturing has changed and seems to be getting more and more similar to my present engagement ring… LOL. By the time we finally have the wedding, I may actually just love my current ring style as is… I doubt it, though…

This post has turned into something that the OP did NOT intend! Posting pics, stats & price of your (overly) expensive ering on a thread like this is just plain stupid and COMPLETELY insensitive, let alone inappropriate. There- I said it. Sorry (but not really).

Honestly, I never really LOVED the syle of my enagement ring Fiance chose for me. Don’t get me wrong- I love the ring & I WILL wear it forever. But the style is more contemporary/less vintage or antique than I would have liked. In hindsight though, I would much rather end up with this ring than one I chose for myself. It seems to me, there are much more ladies unsatisfied with thier rings who chose them themselves? Is it like the 2 dress thing? Do we just 2nd guess our choices? If I had chosen the ring, I can definitely admit that I’d be regretting it by now. I would have always found one I liked better, which IMO is the case with ladies getting 3, 4, 5 different erings. I’m glad it was out of my hands, to be honest. I’ve learned to love it for what it is- a symbol of our love and a completely romantic gesture.

OP: Glad to hear the update, what matters is both you & Fiance are happy with what’s on your finger!

I felt that way for a little bit.. but then, I saw how proud my Fiance is of what he bought, and it made me fall in love all over with it, and now, when I look at it, I can’t help but smile when I think about how he picked it out, and when he proposed.

And one of the sweetest things that my fiance does, if my ring is crooked, he will straighten it for me and then kiss my forehead. ๐Ÿ™‚ hehe.

I don’t have my engagement ring yet, but we’re ordering it next month, after 6 months of engagement ring mishaps :/

Because I don’t have a ring yet, I can’t say that I will or won’t get bored with it, but if I did, then if I wanted another one, FH wouldn’t care. Why? Because FH didn’t pick it out. He didn’t spend months or even weeks freaking out over cut, stone, design.. anything. He spent maybe 3 days looking with me, but I’m the one that made the decision.

I’m glad you found a set that you love. I personally love the antique look : )

My first engagement ring was a promise ring, cz. Because we was so young when we first got engaged. My first birdal set was white gold, three small diamonds on the e-ring & three small diamonds on the wedding band. It was 200 some dollars but we got it on sale. Either way I loved it and wore it for a long time. It was very small diamonds 1/20th carat total weight. Then we upgraded to another bridal set, that was 1 solitaire e-ring with crosses on the sides of the band & wedding band with crosses also. Still a small diamond but much bigger than the other one, 1/10th carat. I wore it for a little while and then got my third bridal set that was 1/5 carat but looked much larger because it was a cluster set. I wore it for a while also. All of these rings was 200 dollars and under. Since we didn’t have the money to fork out for something more expensive & the last two sets was sterling silver they started to “fade.” So now I’m on my last set. I have a 1/4th carat wedding band. Hubby got it out of layaway earlier this month & my e-ring is still in layaway. Its a white gold band with a 1/2 carat princess cut GIA certified diamond ring! ๐Ÿ™‚ Which I’m so excited for. Basically my rings was all upgrades (diamond got bigger) and temps until we could afford a nicer set. Which I enjoyed picking my band and e-ring to go together instead of a set. I don’t think there is anything wrong with upgrading. Esp. in situations when you couldn’t afford a nicer one to start with. Hubby is very happy this is my last set and to be honest so am I lol. If it wasn’t for layaway we probablly couldn’t had saved up for it. So we are both really glad for that! Don’t get me wrong I loved my other rings but like I said they was silver and faded. White gold is the way to go if you get something you will be wearing everyday/for the rest of your life!

First of all, I feel for the original poster- I’m currently having ring issues myself and I say do what makes YOU happy.

 Second of all HOLY FRICKN DRAMA GIRLS!!! It really makes me sad when I see girls bickering back and forth on these boards. This is supposed to be FUN! Seriously I think it comes down to this; we’re all DIFFERENT and that’s a great thing. What makes one happy may not make another happy but that doesn’t make the unhappy one a terrible person. To each his own regardless if it means the size, the money spent or what have you. Everyone is different, different taste, different priorities, so be it.

I don’t think it’s right for anyone to judge the ones with HUGE diamonds, little diamonds or for being happy or unhappy with what they have. YES it is all about the fact that someone chose us to spend the rest of their lives witih and there is no greater honor yet with that comes us wearing a ring for the rest of our lives. IMO I don’t think just because the ring has special meaning  that we HAVE to be okay with whatever was chosen. Our personal taste does not get thrown out the window.

Kudos to the ones that LOVE their rings and remember that everyone would love the opportunity to feel the same whatever that means

@vicozzie: This thread was dead for over a month, seems like you’re rehashing the drama that was squashed awhile ago.

Actually, in the interest of fairness, Mrs.Estep posted on this thread and hour before vicozzie did.  vicozzie is a new bee and probably just seen it at the top of the list.

True but it doesn’t take much to see the age of the post.

It just seems so silly to point our drama when it’s done and gone.  Kinda like feeding trolls.
