@Cupcake2012:  That is so sweet that she wanted to get you a ring! My Fiance and I both where rings – and they coordinate – we went together to look at them and then went separately to actually purchase them.  They are different styles, but both have sapphires (mine in the band, with a diamond center stone and hers as the center stone with diamonds in the band) I think that you can do whatever works best for you ladies as a couple – perhaps though two thinner rings (one for engagement and one for wedding, that way she ends up with two as well? Just a thought) Since most people don’t assume that I would be with a woman, it was really important to me that our rings coordinated in some way (though recently at a jewelry store after  hearing that our rings matched someone still asked if we were sisters and said how cute it was that we matched our e-rings- WHAT?!? haha!)

 

We also did two proposals – though within a couple of weeks of each other.  My Fiance really wanted to propose first, but in the end they both ended up a surprise and were perfect and special in their own way.

 

Congratulations and good luck!!

@Cupcake2012: I’m like you – girly girl with a traditional ring.  My wife did the proposing but she also wanted a ring just not the traditional solitaire like I have so I had one made for her in the style that she wanted and her wedding band matches mine. When i gave her the ring, I also proposed but she proposed first πŸ™‚

I don’t have any of both our rings with wedding bands together, but hers matches really nicely.

you should definitely get her a ring! does she like bling? every girl wants diamonds!!!

I think I commented in another thread, but I proposed to my love with a plain band (which is what she wanted.) But she’ll be getting a delicate diamond semi-eternity band as her wedding band, so her set will look like this:

 

I am trying to talk her into a blingier band but she likes a more casual, understated look.  : )

The way we did the proposal is that we set the date, planned a special day, and when the moment felt right we pulled out the rings and proposed to each other, one after the other. I actually went first because she was nervous. It was really perfect for us.

Here’s my set:

I love reading this thread too! I love how everyone’s story – both proposal wise and ring wise is so unique!  The rings are absolutely beautiful! 

 

Here is a picture of our rings together (before we had my setting fixed though – the jeweler had messed up a bit and made it a bit chunkier than i wanted, now the stones sit more flush to my finger and the diamond is higher) 

We had originially planned on doing cooridinating bands, but I think that my Fiance wants to go with something a bit more understated – whereas I defintely want to add to the bling! πŸ˜‰

 

@Cupcake2012 – can’t wait to hear how you decide to ask her! πŸ™‚

I just wanted to chime in here too. My boyfriend wanted a traditional proposal (with him doing the proposing) but I wanted to propose to him too (I don’t think him being a guy makes much difference in this case) but he’s not into jewelry and wouldn’t want a ring. So I bought him an engagement guitar and had a metal pick engraved with “I pick you too” (really cheesy I know). I hid the guitar in our apartment and put the pick in a ring box with a note saying where to look for the guitar. I carried it in my purse and when he proposed, I proposed back to him with the pick. When we got home he found the guitar.

Does your Fiance have any interests that would have something sentimental that you could give her for an engagement present? You could then suprise her with a proposal and an “engagement gift” instead of a ring.

Just an idea πŸ™‚

@Crabbabs: Lol! “I pick you too.” That is so brilliant and I love it. How did he respond?

Add me to the list of girls who wanted a traditional e-ring!  My Fiance proposed with a solitaire that we picked out together.  She does not have an e-ring but will wear a plain wedding band.  We thought about an e-ring for her but she would agree only to a plain band (no diamonds/gemstones) and I was worried it would just look like a wedding band.  I like your idea of putting it on her right hand.

@Cupcake2012:  Of course we don’t mind. And I want to see a handshot!
