I told Mr. Diamond that I wanted a ring with a diamond halo and diamonds down the band. I pointed out a few that I wanted. And I got a solitare that is just beautiful. I feel like I’ve posted my ring everywhere but Mr. D did such a good job.

What I thought I wanted…

What I got…

When we were researching rings, I finally chose this and printed it out. When we went in the store to try it on, I actually didn’t like it because I felt it was “too big” and “too blingy” for my taste. Plus, the wedding band would have swallowed my tiny tiny ring finger. I was very surprised, but it made sense because I’m not a showy person and I’ve never been a huge fan of diamonds. Aren’t they beautiful, though? 🙂

These beauties ended up stealing my heart away, and it was a discontinued set that wasn’t displayed online…I love them! 🙂 I love delicacy of them!

Thank you so much. I told him a loved him so much that I said I would marry him without even seeing the ring cause he did it a night in a gazebo. I didn’t even get to see it until I got back to the car. He did wonderful.

Your ring is beautiful too. I really like how the sides sweep over each other. My Future Mother-In-Law asked me if I liked that at a wedding fair we went to and I thought she knew that he had gotten me something like yours. He didn’t but the next week he did pop the question. Oh and Congradulations on getting married!!!

Yes, I did this also.

I wanted a princess cut solitaire & my husband actually had a princess cut solitaire on layaway for me. & Then one night after joining the bee I was looking at alot of different rings & it made me start looking at them on google & on reviews so I could see actual rings on hands & see all of the different styles & shapes out there. I found marquise solitaires & instantly knew that is what I wanted! We went to the store the very next day & got my marquise & took the princess cut out of layaway.

The ring I wanted before:

The ring I fell in love with & got:

It wasn’t a COMPLETE 180. They are both solitaires & white gold. But both very different shapes! I know some women who love a princess cut but wouldn’t even try on a marquise. So the styles are really different. I am so glad I found the pictures online & did my research because I love my marquise & my wedding band! I also did the same exact thing with my wedding band. When I got my marquise solitaire I got a plain white gold band to go with it. The diamond bands was out of reach at the time. Once I finally got my diamond band it was channel set. Which are gorgeous. & I loved it just for the fact that it had diamonds in it. But after wearing it for a while I noticed how cloudy the stones was in the wedding band. & I started loving pave & bead set bands. So I found one & we returned my channel set band for my bead set half eternity band which is more my style & fits my engagement ring alot better. I find the channel sets bands to be more modern & I like the way my bead set band has a more vintage feel to it. 🙂

I almost got this setting from Brilliant Earth. It reminds me of water, and since I grew up on the water, I thought it would fit me well. But I didn’t want to buy something without being able to try it on first.

And then, 5 jewelry stores, 40ish rings, and one amazing custom jeweler later, we had my lovelies made for me. They are perfect.

What I thought I wanted and what I got weren’t the same at all. But then again, I wasn’t allowed input on my ring. LOl! I wanted a halo, or I thought I did. I ended up with a solitair with a blinged out band. I love it =)

A little! I always pictured wearing a classic round solitaire, but ended up with a three stone princess cut.

Yes and no.  I thought I wanted a 3-stone Tacori and the solitaire Tacori looked much better on my hand.
