    Yes, I told him exactly what I wanted/We picked it together.

    Yes, I dropped hints!

    No, it was out of our budget but I got one very similar.

    No, I dropped hints but got something totally different and I love it!

    No, so I told him and we exchanged it/will exchange it.

    No, but I'm keeping it.

    The proposal was a surprise and it's exactly what I would've picked.

    The proposal was a surprise and it's not what I would've picked.

    I didn't have a 'dream ring' in mind.

    I never had a dream ring, I just knew my style.

    I wanted a .75-1ct solitaire, and I didn’t care too much if it was actually a diamond, but I wanted something colorless/white (white topaz and white sapphire were what I looked at for a long time). 

    I eventually discovered Moissanite, and got exactly what I wanted… a 3/4ct Moissanite solitaire.

    @NM32:  at the end of the day we’re all marrying the man of our dreams and that’s the most important thing

    Some bees are marrying the lady of their dream 😉

    But to answer your question, yes, it was a ring that I wanted – of course, there will always be other rings which are bigger, sparklier, more expensive than mine, but I just tell myself to stop comparing.

    I didn’t know what I wanted, beyond “diamond and gold”. I never really thought about it before Fiance started bringing it up. It’s kind of funny because I know so much about diamonds now. Turns out I actually have very specific taste in diamonds and ring settings (I usually have specific taste in things, once I know them,) but I’ve never been engaged before so I didn’t know the words or full gamut of options until we started the ring search adventure.

    Fiance took me ring shopping to so many stores, and in the end, he hand-picked the diamond and custom designed my ring, with my input, to make sure I loved it, but he always took the lead. So yes, it is now absolutely my dream ring!

    yes! have my dream ring!

    i picked out the ring, my Fiance said he just wants me to be happy.

    and i think he didn’t want the headache of figuring out what shape, color,

    style and size.

    Well most of the rings I wanted were way over budget. But I picked my own ring out, so I guess you can say I got my dream ring. =)

    I had never looked at or even thought about engagement rings until we talked about getting engaged. So I didn’t have a dream ring. Once we started looking at rings together, my Fiance got a sense of what I liked and designed it for me. It is the most beautiful ring I have ever seen and it is my dream ring because he picked it out.

    I absolutely received my dream ring! I came across it online and couldn’t stop talking about. A few months later I was engaged with it 🙂
