I looked for something that was traditional but modern and that complimented my style and taste.  I didn’t really know WHAT I wanted going into it, but when I found it, I knew.

I looked for something I could wear all the time, that was comfortable, suited my style, and that I would never want to change.

I wanted a cushion shaped halo with diamonds down the band. Fiance said he liked round diamonds so I included that. We also wanted at least a 1ct center stone. So I ended up with my perfect ring!

@peachbaby4008:  when i first went to look at rings, i originall wanted a cushion cut with a micro paved band -NO HALO. but after trying a bunch on.. i realized how cushion cuts just looks so much smaller than the brilliant round cuts. i tried the round cuts on and it was like “whabam” as you say lol it love it!!!! so my heart was then set (still is) on round cuts 😀 and as for the band, i got something that was paved but with bigger sized stones 🙂

I’m an Irish woman and my Irish heritage is extremely important to me so I wanted an Irish love ring called a Claddagh ring.  Irish women have traditionally worn Claddagh rings as both their engagement ring and wedding ring, but I got the ring for an engagement ring and I also wanted a wedding band to go along with it. However, I also wanted my engagement ring to have at least one gemstone because I love gems.  I also already have a plain gold Claddagh ring which my father gave me, so I wanted a Claddagh ring from my husband and something a little fancier this time for our engagement.  I honestly didn’t really care too much what my wedding band looked like as long as it fit with the Claddagh ring, as most wedding bands don’t due to the unusual shape of Claddagh rings.  After much searching, what I eventually came across was this matching set, and when I saw that the center stone was a sapphire (the birthstone for September, the month we were married in), I knew that this ring set was truly meant for me.

I looked for obviously what I love in a ring. But I didnt care if everyone else had cushion cuts or halos its what I love. I told Fiance what I wanted, knowing he didnt have the money to get me the real deal I let him surprise me with a temp ring and he did such a good job I would keep it if it would hold up but he wants to buy me a real one of course so Im picking a 1.1 ct center stone cushion cut moissainte with a halo and in the end I i’ll be somewhat different anyway because im choosing a rose gold wedding band. At first, I really wanted a diamond but as I looked at moissy I fell in love with them and it works out because I get the size I want and Fiance can comfotably afford it.

I looked for something that I knew Id have to love forever and I knew I would be wearing the rest of my life, I also wanted a ring my Fiance loved as much as me.  He actually is amazing at picking out jewelry now and the ring I have now is gorgeous and the wedding band with the ering are exactly what he calls “me”  I think just remember youll have to love it for the rest of your life cuz youll be wearing it that long 🙂

sorry no pic Im getting it back from sizing Tuesday:)

Fiance brought it up.  I said “I’ve got a thing with solitairs, RBs, no halo, and wide plain bands.”  He did good with all of the above, but the setting was too high and too loose.  And there was no way of him knowing the outcome of the setting as the height was misrepresented from the display one, and my size changed from what he knew it to be.  Either way, we had the setting changed out and three weeks later the final ering came in 12/12 and Fiance re-proposed.  Am lucky, and I know this, that Fiance asked ahead of time of criteria to look for.

I don’t really wear jewelry and am extremely picky when I do. The most important thing for me was to find something that I would be excited to wear every day. I also really wanted a ring that fit my personality, wasn’t too expensive, and was handcrafted. It took quite a bit of searching to find something that matched my criteria. However, it was well worth the time and effort because now I can’t help but smile whenever I look down at my hand.

I knew that I wanted a plain shank, and a cushion cut centre stone. Then we went from there!

I wanted something classic, delicate, and glittery (: and not a diamond centre stone.
