PeachyHills :  What is that gorgeous centre stone? That colour is stunning and the kind of thing I would love to have for a RHR.

woodscommaelle :  wow! Stunning!! I’ll also post my new e ring which I got about a month ago! I picked it out on my own entirely and he just paid for it 😁 I think it’s better that way so you get exactly what you want and there won’t be any hurt feelings if you don’t like it. It’s a win win!!

We both browsed loose diamonds on James Allen’s website and agreed on the stone, and he asked me which setting I liked.  Initially he wanted to choose all of it himself but I believe he began to see that it may be wiser to get my input since I’ll be looking down at it on my finger forever.

woodscommaelle :  As I went through all the posts and looked at everyone’s beautiful rings, I got towards the end and I thought to myself, I hope the OP posts if she got hers and there she was! OMGOSH she is stunning! Absolutely beautiful! Congratulations. 

 

I have had quite a few rings over the years (been married 8 years), but honestly it was mostly me picking out a new ring, my husband didn’t care as long as I liked it, and it never cost very much money for me to move over to a new stone or setting. Well, recently I made a couple of silly moves with my ring and wasn’t happy with my last diamond at all, my husband came to me a couple weeks ago and told me he wanted to get me a new diamond/ring, one I could be very happy with. The next day we went to our jeweler and we both found a diamond we LOVED and I had originally had my heart set on a halo (still do) but the two halo settings my jeweler had, my husband was not crazy about just then my jeweler showed us a setting in our price range and my husband LOVED it, and since he was giving me such a wonderful memory and experience of us picking this out together and the love and attention he had finally given me in regards to picking out a ring that I really loved (my first ring was a horrible experience it was rushed and.. ugh…  LONG story lol, and all other rings were just my doing on a whim for fun usually my mom was with me and more hers and my things, he was never really involved).  And to be honest I really do love the setting, it was an excellent choice and I am not unhappy with it at all, I guess it just means something to me that he actually put so much love and opinion into this ring. I finally got my beautiful pear shaped diamond F color, VS2, yes I went down in carat from a 1.5 to a 1 carat, but the quality is so much better. I love this ring so much its the nicest ring I have ever had. Both my husband and I agreed that we will add a halo one day because we both really did love the halo, just not the whole halo setting my jeweler had at the time. And I did not want to wait for a custom piece LOL. To be honest I am loving it as is and if my husband comes to me and tells me he wants to add the halo we can do it, but I truly love this ring as is and I FINALLY have a ring I LOVE. The journey to this ring is very much a similar journey to the marriage me and my husband worked so hard for. Things were not always the best for us, but just as things have really fallen into place, he presents me with this beautiful ring and gesture.

woodscommaelle :  Okay just went back and read your original post. You’re a beautiful soul and I hope you enjoy being a lawyer and making a difference. You sound so beautiful and put together. With a fashion background I suppose you had so much fun collaborating with your love to pick out/creat your beautiful ring. What made you choose an oval? I love hearing why people decide on a specific cut. Was it oval from the beginning or were you open to other shapes but that one happened to speak to you the most or were you totally set on oval? I love ovals. I love trillions. I don’t think I have seen trillions next to an oval before so that is very “custom” yet still very beautiful and classic. Your whole ring is unique from the, what appears to be, floating diamonds on the setting, to your trillions to your beautiful oval. Is it 100% custom? You two did a GREAT job!

Nope, he did it without much input from me.

woodscommaelle :  Not yet engaged, but yes I did help pick out the ring he will propose with. I tried some rings on my own after he’d showed me some pics of what he liked. I ended up not liking the style he chose, so we went together to a few different jewelry stores and I tried on a bunch of rings until we found one we both really loved.

Chr_23 :  OMG I love this!  I recently fell in love with a ridiculous ring that was part of an estate sale I was browsing.  It’s like 33k lol.  You ring is gorgeous.  It makes me think maybe I would like a ruby engagement ring.  I would never have considered myself a ruby lover before this.
