Ooooo that’s sooo pretty. Mine’s new, so no real story… though I did get to do some customizing. I would have loved an antique piece, but at least mine has a lot of antiquey elements.

Gorgeous, and I like your white sapphire idea.  We did not do an engagement ring (at my request), but he got me a set of sapphire solitaires (pendant and earrings) which are gorgeous.  I was thinking about doing a stone in my wedding band, but I’m not sure I want it to be blue or colored at all.  The FH is v. against diamonds, though, so maybe a white sapphire will be a good compromise:)

Your ring is beautiful!I’ve always wanted either a ruby or sapphire Ering (my birthstone is ruby, my favorite color is blue and I love the blue of a sapphire). My Fiance got me the "Past Present Future" sapphire ring from Zales. I LOVE IT, and it is totally me and best of all Fiance picked it out himself rather sneakily! He said he had to go into work one Saturday and was home after about 2.5 hours saying the power was out at work because of construction. He was really buying my Ering! Little sneak! 😀

I don’t have a picture on this computer, but I thought I’d share the story!

 When my fiance told his parents he planned to propose, they gave him the ring his father proposed to his mother with. He said thanks, but that he wanted to make it his own. He used the diamond and had it re-set in a band he picked out. It is beautiful!

My future in-laws honestly have the best marriage I have witnessed, I really respect their marriage, I hope the ring will bring us the same luck and happiness it has brought them.

 Now I just need to find out how my future father in law proposed, I haven’t had a chance to ask yet, and I really want to know! 🙂

Why does posting a link to a photo get my post thrown away?

 edit: thank you for the answer!

@ GrumpyBear: I have almost the exact same ring, although it’s not my E ring.  It was given to me by a previous Boyfriend or Best Friend who asked me to describe my ideal ring. I described, and he bought it.  (We were not engaged; it was my 1-year-anniversary gift…He was a little over-the-top, needless to say). I still wear it, just because it was so personally tailored to me and looks good on my hand.  I no longer have any feelings for him, obviously, and my Fiance knows all about it. 

I don’t have my E ring yet, but when I do, it will have the story that he actually proposed months beforehand without a ring, and we aren’t telling our families and most friends until we "make it official" with the ring.  My parents will probably have a heart attack knowing that I didn’t tell them for multiple months, but it’s been fun having a secret between Fiance and I.

I love that you all have stories about your rings! 

I don’t have a story behind my ring, but I love it because it’s classic, sturdy, and a little different…also the designer is from Seattle (where we live).  I’m attaching pictures I took shortly after we got engaged (you can see my old lady pjs in the background).

My husband didn’t have as much as he wanted to spend on a ring when we got engaged so he tells me I can upgrade if I want now that he has a better job and more saved, but I tell him I’d never replace my e-ring…it means too much and reminds me of the time in our lives when we got engaged.

My ring is special because it was (still is) my dream ring. I showed it to Mr. SR on a whim a couple of years ago; little to my knowledge, he bookmarked the website page 🙂

I just got my ring yesterday! Yay! A few months ago when we first started looking at rings, we stopped in our local jewelers that does custom design. We looked at a lot of options and I picked out a band I really liked. I like that it’s modern looking yet kind of has an art deco feel. I had always wanted a princess cut diamond. So then the holidays came and while we’ve started planning, not much was said about an ering. We have a really tight budget (who doesn’t these days) and I had told him that we could skip the ering and just get a fancy schmancy wedding band. But he had other ideas.

Before Christmas he went back and started the process. He looked at several diamonds and picked out the most beautiful, nearly flawless round diamond. Perfect size and shape for the band I’d picked out. He was  going to give it to me between Christmas & New Years, but was unable to because the place where they forge the ring was closed between the holidays. Then he was going to give it to me for our 1 year anniversary but due to bad weather, it was delayed again. He finally picked it up about a week and a half ago and was just waiting for the right moment to give it to me. 

While it wasn’t an Bachelor-esq proposal, it was totally us: sweet, intimate, and funny. Oh and I love love love the ring even though it’s not princess cut!

I don’t have a picture yet, but my engagement ring is actually one that I inherited from my (deceased) grandmother on my father’s side. She had to flee Czechoslovakia when World War Two began and the only things she brought with her were her husband, the family silver, and that engagement ring. Interestingly enough though, it can’t be hers – it’s bigger than her fingers ever were. That’s good, because it fits me like it was made for me, but we don’t know which relative it originally belonged to!
