    1cat :  I didn’t but my fiancée didn’t like what I wanted and she also has to see if for the rest of her life. So I get it. Lol. However she did pick a ring off my etsy “liked” list. So my dream ring? No. A ring I love? Yes.

    I gave him some suggestions (metal colour, cut and overall style) and he nailed it.

    I gave him a couple of ideas of what I liked and what I got was so much better than expected. I absolutely LOVE my ring.

    I got exactly what I wanted and I love it. My husband’s only concern with picking the ring was choosing something I would love. We went shopping together and I picked three settings I loved then he made the final decision (although I did hint not so subtlety which was my favorite!). He also picked out the center sapphire on his own and it’s the perfect shade of blue!

    I already knew I wasn’t going to get my ‘dream ering’. I really wanted a pear shaped solitare, but it just wasn’t in the budget. My second choice was princess cut solitare (which I got). However, DH chose a ring with a very ugly and awkward side profile. He couldn’t afford a larger diamond, so his mentality was if it ‘stuck out’ far enough it would LOOK bigger (it doesn’t). 

    He actually let me pick my wedding band because I always said I wanted one that looked just like my grandmothers: a plain band but with a specific width and texture. However, I’d recieved so much ‘ring shame’ from my peers (I had a small solitare surrounded by people with larger diamonds and multi-stone bands) that I had a last minute change of heart and wanted a diamond band so I could have more ‘bling’….the only diamond band in the budget was three round cut diamonds so small they actually make my ering look more comical. I KNOW I did that to myself, but I regret it because I wanted a wedding band like my grandmothers since I was a little girl, and let jealousy last minute change my mind.

    I have NEVER even IMPLIED to DH that I don’t love my rings! I’m just happy I am married and HAVE rings!

    I don’t have my ring yet, but I picked it out. He knew I was going to be picky about what I wanted. I got a cushion cut center mossy, set in a cushion halo, pave shank. 

    I’m hoping I made the right call once it’s on!

    1cat :  I originally told my Fiance I wanted something like this


    I ended up getting a Dainty 3 stone that I absolutely love! I think my Fiance knew what I truly wanted, but he did get all my major wants: thin band, white gold, 0.5 ct. I love my ring, even though it is not what I thought I wanted!

    We had an heirloom diamond from my FI’s family, and I told him I wanted a yellow gold solitaire. It’s perfect!

    I love my ring and it’s exactly what I want…but went ring shopping together so it would be my fault if it wasn’t 🙂 There was one style of ring that I loved that he didn’t (this photo, except I wanted morganite as the main) but it is unusual and I was okay with choosing something else. Then we found a diamond setting that I looooved, popped a morganite in it and that’s what I have!
