We didn’t have one until like a couple days before we were married, and it’s completely atypical. I like that I have something to remember our engaement (we mounted a stone from the beach he proposed at) but the other thing I thought of doing and might do in the future for a birthday present or something is have his birthstone on a ring, or the two of our birthstones on a ring – aquamarine and pearl – ohlala.
I didn’t get too many comments just a few people grabbed my hand when I said we were engaged and then asked where the ring was. A bit annoying but since it is atypical I understand, the only thing that really annoyed me was then when the response was really negative, but whatever, we had a short engagement so that wasn’t an issue for long and is a complete non-issue now that we’re married.
