    AwkwardCoconut:  of course, girl should be happy just about the fact of proposal – oh, big mighty man chosed her from thousand of other girl.. so be proud, little woman ๐Ÿ˜‰

    if ring does not matter, and the relationship is the only important thing here, so what’s a problem to hope to upgrade later or just to be not happy about ring somewhere deep in the soul?

    if ring matters, why do you judge a woman that have a ring that she does not like? 

    (sorry for my crappy english)

    I love my ring. My Future Sister-In-Law didn’t/doesn’t. C’est la vie.

    I like my ring. Its a .97 by weight and faces up to about 6.3 mm, imply set in a low 6 prong. I dont love the setting (its a little wonky from catching it on a horse’s halter but I am too cheap and lazy to have it reset. The picture is horrible – lol. Its not the highest specs and does have a carbon spot, but its white and sparkly. It was not an expensive ring for it size but looks good. It helps to keep it very clean (I am fastidious about cleaning it, since it gets really yukky from my barn and riding gloves. I clean it every day to avoid buildup and have it professionally cleaned once every few months. I would love it set in a tiffany setting (as in a real tiffany brand) or a lookalike becaue I love the detail of the tiffany prongs, but again, I am too cheap/lazy to do it.

    I like my ring fine, but I don’t exactly LOVE it. It’s beautiful but I prefer a different style. I knew Darling Husband had plans to do it himself, he belives in the element of surprise but I at least want him to have an idea of stuff I liked. I was browsing rings online and showed him a few different styles I liked. In all fairness, this was one I pointed out, but I really preferred a halo.

     

    He worked with an independant designer to make my ring. I don’t mind the setting, but I actually prefer it was more pave or dainty of a band than more channel set like they are now. I’d always envisioned a second band on the other side of my e-ring, but I played around with a CZ eternity band to see how it felt – and it feels too bulky. I think one day I might consider having it rest.

    • Wedding: November 2015 - City, State

    I picked my own ring but I realized a few days later it wasn’t really me. Their selection wasn’t that great or unique, plus I felt like I HAD to get a ring that since we made a special trip to NYC to go to his family friend’s store. And I knew in the back of my mind my SO wanted to get my ring that day. So I picked the one I liked the most out of what I saw.

    I told my Fiance about my ring regret and while he was hurt and upset with me he came around and loves the new ring I picked out (even though it’s a halo which he usually hates). I wanted to truly love my ring since I’ll be wearing that thing forever. He just wanted me to be happy and now we are both so excited to receive it on Monday!

    AwkwardCoconut:  I wasn’t trying to sound ungreatful, I was just being 100% honest. Not everyone is in love with their ring, but that doesn’t mean I love my fiance any less. I just imagined something different.

    I picked my own engagement ring, and hated it before I left the store. Had it reset about 8 years into marriage, hated it more ( again I picked out the setting).

    Last summer, Darling Husband picked out a setting and now I wear it almost every day and love it. 

    That’s the way married life rolls sometimes.

    kam2178:  Well, those people are crazy because your ring is completely beautiful. I think I’m learning something about my taste here because I would not have thought that I’d love oval stones but between you and drdeebee it’s clear that I do.<br /><br />

    mazzoffee:  Thank you so much! It definitely has an interesting story. That’s the reason I call it my “wedding ring” and not my engagement ring, even though it looks like one. My husband loved the idea because we saved money not having to buy a whole new ring setting for my diamond, I got to keep my channel wedding band, which I absolutely loved and couldn’t part with and I get the look of the ring I wanted. I honestly thought I would see other bezels with channel set sides but I haven’t. It’s kinda surprising but glad my ring ended up being unique for me. ๐Ÿ™‚

    No, I didn’t love it..only because I always pictured my engagement ring to be a solitaire. I got engaged at a really young age the first time ( 20 years old) and it was a three stone…small marquise shaped diamond in the middle and a tiny trillion stone on each side.  Looking back, it was really pretty…but not what I pictured having.  A couple years later when we had the money I did end up getting my solitaire.   

    I ended up getting divorced and remarried and now have a small (my choice) round brilliant solitaire that I just adore.  I’m sure a certain style can grow on you over time, but for me I just end up changing it anyway if it wasn’t exactly what I wanted.

    I HATED my original. I sent a picture, it wasn’t what I wanted. My husband said he liked it, but found out later it was only because he wasn’t sure what to say (men!) anyway, I found an amazing jeweler to make the ring of my dreams. I also switched out the original moissanite too. Original on top, new on the bottom
