@Marjojo:  I have the same ring, and I just love it!  What are you doing for a wedding band?  I don’t think a matching Tacori band is in our budget, so I was hoping you took a different route as well

Oh fun thread! This is the first time I have posted pictures of my e-ring here. I consider it dainty because of the small band and because I have small fingers (size 4). I love everyone’s rings!

I would say mine is slightly dainty!

Here’s mine. (Ring size 3.75; I felt overwhelmed by a lot of settings. This one is perfect!)

Here is mine! I adore it! A couple of months before my fiance proposed, we had talked about everything and I gave him suggestions on rings, and he just so happened to pick one of the rings I had shown him! I feel blessed!

We’re not officially engaged yet, but we’ve had the stone for some time. Trying to wait till we’re out of debt (We just got a check today that will most likely clear us completely! That is, until he goes to university.. ha.), save up for a cruise with his Grandpa who is terminal and/or a visit to Thailand to visit my grandparents that are terminal as well.

The first photo (I don’t know why it didn’t upload right side up like it’s supposed to.) is the stone with my promise ring, which is the gold ring his father had made for him when he was 10. He had it reshaped, polished and reengraved by his jeweler friend and told me, “I want you to have this ring b/c I want you to be Mrs. _______ one day.”

The second photo is the setting I fell in love with, can’t find anything else that I love. His Mom went with me. My stone is a radiant cut, the one in the picture from Tacori’s website is an emerald.

My ring size is a 4.5 and I’m 23 years old… It’s crazy to some, but we plan to have a 5 year engagement so we can enjoy life, travel to Thailand to have him really get the idea of my culture (He loves our food.) and finish school first. ๐Ÿ™‚

Sorry for the loooooong post. ๐Ÿ™

I told him just to get a solitaire setting or use one of our mom’s (Both have offered other settings to us that are sentimental to them/us.), but he says he wants it to be “right the first time around.”

Yep, it’s dainty ๐Ÿ™‚ Fiance let me pick it out because he said he wanted me to love the ring(s) I’d wear for the rest of my life. I was really surprised to find that it suits my personality…I’m not a huge fan of diamonds and I’m not–I guess what you call a flashy person, but I couldn’t resist the beauty of having a diamond ring.

It’s not a popular design, but I am attracted to more unique things!

Oh, for details…it’s a .75 carat center along with six diamonds on the band (set in platinum).

Sorry, I have tons of photos…can’t just choose a couple.

There’s my wedding band above.

Beautiful rings, Bees!

I think I may have the bee’s most un-daintiest ring (if that’s a word!) but I LOVE delicate settings! My mom has a beautiful oval diamond on a thin, plain yellow gold band and I’ll admit to sometimes “playing dress up” with it, b/c it’s so different than my own but just as stunning.

Marquise diamond on a 10k white gold band, with channel set diamond wedding band also 10k white gold. Both bands are about 2mm, the wedding band being a tad bit thicker. I love them! ๐Ÿ™‚

I have big, honking, German, potato-picking hands…I should be a size 8 but I squeeze into a size 7 ring and pray that I don’t retain water. I think this is half a carat with three little side-stones on each side. The shank is brushed white gold which is perfect because my hands get BEAT UP. (I’m a dog walker)

Mine is vintage with a 1/3 carat center stone.
