I originally thought I wanted an oval, until I went to Tiffany’s and tried on their classic solitaire. I was blown away! But I wanted a slight bit more flare to it. I fell in love with Mark Morrell’s work on pricescope and instantly knew he was my designer. Got engaged 6 weeks ago with the ring (& man) of my dreams!!!!!

I would have to say no: I didn’t get my “dream ring”. Neither my engagement ring nor my anniversary ring are anything like what I thought I would love. But I do love them.
Before meeting Darling Husband, I never expected to get married, so I hadn’t given a ring any thought at all. Once I realized Darling Husband was “the one”, I started thinking about rings. I always pictured a heart-shaped or round brilliant solitaire. I love how simple and beautiful they are. And how classic. There is something breathtaking about that single stone. And so, that is what I always pictured on my hand. I guess that makes it my dream ring.
Once Darling Husband and I started looking at rings and trying on different styles, I was more than a little crushed to discover solitaires didn’t look so great on me. And so I ended up with something completely different than expected. It might not have been my “dream ring”, but I have to say it was definitely the perfect ring for me!
And my anniversary ring sort of happened unexpectedly. We originally went into the jeweler’s to find a sapphire and diamond wedding band. I’ve always wanted one. But … I ended up falling head over heels for my beautiful lady. So the sapphire and diamond band got put on hold. Again, not what I expected to love, but what feels perfect for me.
ETA: Sorry for the super long post! (yikes!)

Yes I did. Wanted this exact setting, size up to him. I wanted no bigger than 1.5 and that’s what I got . I even had the picture torn out stuck in a journal, I would lust over it and imagine it on my finger. When he initiated ring browsing, he loved classic solitaires too and wanted it from a trusted brick & mortar… meant to be. Posting cheesy dream come true pic because to me it is the most beautiul ring on earth! Mostly because it’s mine and he gave it to me with a promise to get married, dreams all around

I did – it’s literally more than I ever hoped for (the center stone is about a full carat larger than I was expecting). Fiance did a fabulous job. 🙂

Olivepepper: Same for me!
I love my ring and in the “real world” it is my dream ring. Now if money was no object and I could have any ring, I would have gone with a Harry Winston Cluster ring, but last I checked it was about $24,000 so it’s never ever remotely going to be in the cards. Here’s the dream:

I always wondered what kind of ring I would get but had no idea what I wanted. SOOOO many beautiful rings and then one day I had a beautiful dream in which my fiance gave me a pear ring and I fell in love and here it is! LITERALLY MY DREAM RING. I wouldnt have imagined something so amazing for me. It goes with me.

Yes Siree, Bob!! Everytime I think it’s not perfect, I think again.
My husband proposed with a $68 Walmart ring, and we did this entire set together afterwards. I don’t have much sentimental attachment to it. I’m much more attached to my sapphire necklace that he had made for me.
What I absolutely know is NOT perfect…is my husband. That’s how I like his sweet ass. 🙂
