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.

I didn’t have one until a month before the wedding.  It was a little awkward but I think it’s ok.  In many other countries/traditions, they don’t do an engagement ring sort of thing.  It is all up to you like someone else said.  Whatever makes you happy! 🙂

I don’t have my real one yet and we’ve been engaged since Nov! (Wearing a cz stand-in) I’m considering just the wedding band though, not sure. I actually just posted about this…I need helping picking!
