That’s basically it. I did not get what I asked for yet I’m hapoy with what I have and I’m curious as to know which Bees are in the same boat. If you do not fit any of the poll questions please explain. Feel free to expound on the matter without judgment, ridicule or harsh retaliation(s) Pics are welcome as well.

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 got exactly what I wanted. My hubby knows me well

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!

- Wedding: September 2015 - Hotel Ballroom
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!

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!

Cool! & I’m feeling that shade of blue.
Did they “grow” on you? Does the sentiment behind their meaning help them to be um more visually appealing? No implied snarkiness nor sarcasm; I’m curious

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!
