So this past Saturday, over a month after we got my ring made, he finally proposed! Since we’re already secretly married, this was our “public” engagement that we’ve told everyone about. I had found out where my DH/FI had hid the ring and was sneakily putting it on when I got the chance – obviously I have no will power! You can see my original post about the ring here: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/my-ring-sneak-peek-pic-heavy.
I thought I’d post a few new (and better, IMO!) pictures of my ring. So so happy that I get to wear it all the time now! We are telling everyone that DH/FI picked it out himself, since within his circles (not sure if this is a British thing in general?) it’s frowned upon if the girl helps to pick out the ring. I’m also not sure whether to post a picture on facebook…too showy/braggy? I’ve gotten requests from my American friends who wouldn’t otherwise see it in person.
Anyway, without further ado…
My ring is 3.02ct total, with a 2.14ct, G, VVS2 rectangular radiant center stone set in platinum.
Also, if I do opt to put a pic up on Facebook, which one do you guys think I should do – the first one or the last one?

So beautiful! I don’t think it’s too showy or braggy. I think the first pic makes the ring look better, but the coloring/your hand looks better in the last one. LOL. Not very helpful.

Absoutely lovely ring. beautiful!!!
I would never put it on FB though… there was an issue about some latino girl getting engaged and posting her pic on FB with her ginourmous ring and some friend of a friend of a friend saw it and assaulted her or smthing like that… saw it in the papers. Apart from the public bragging which I personally think would be criticised or frowned upon. I myself would love to put it up and brag, but I think it’s not appropriate. Also, you can always send it via mail to your american friends!
Also I get that you don’t say you chose it, I’m from spain and it’s also kind of frowned upon! hehe. I did give him CLEAR hints on what i wanted, though… 🙂
