Good idea for a thread! I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately, especially because my bf and I want a 2011 wedding! I keep thinking we should go ring shopping soon, but still haven’t got around to it, and not sure how to bring it up. I’m worried my bf will go out on his own and pick a ring, and I REALLY want to pick it myself. Just because it’s a lot of money to spend and I know I’m picky, so I have to like it!! I have kind of hinted at that, so I hope he knows lol. As for what I want, I haven’t really looked yet, but I don’t think I want a solitaire or anything too plain. I want sidestones, and a fairly larger center stone, round cut, I would like bigger than a 1ct, but that’s probably not realistic in a nice quality diamond in our budget, so probably will get 1ct. I’ve looked online, but haven’t seen anything that I really like, so I hope it will be better when I go to the stores.

i told him i want an antique or a replica of one if he wasn’t able to find something he thinks i’d like. i sent him photos/a couple of links to styles that i like, most of which seem to fall into the art deco category. i also sent him a list of places that sell antiques, so it will be interesting to see what i actually end up with! here are a few i picked out – the first one is the one i love the most, and the others are all good second runners up 🙂

I gave him numerous pictures on the style of ring I want and examples of what I don’t want.  I think he already has the ring, so, can’t really change my mind now.  Just patiently waiting for the day to say YES.  LOL!!!

Surprisingly, I haven’t picked out a ring!lol The only time I look at them is when he brings it up, otherwise, I don’t really think about it. Maybe I should start!lol

I am so darn torn on the ring thing … I really love Miss Scissors’ ring and loved it the moment I saw it so I was thinking of pointing that out to him. but as far as style goes – I’ve already shown him the Tiffany Setting and the Tiffany Novo

But I have this promise ring that I would like just a larger version of, too!

 

So I’m really torn … and I think I might give up on giving him suggestions. Hopefully the bubblegum machine has a good selection the day he decides to propose!

I have picked out a ring at a specific store…and he knows where to get it! Its actually a family owned little jewelry store that one of my good friends has a cousin who works there and there stuff is gorgeous and very personal and everything is made to your specific needs. We went ring shopping about 3 months ago so he knew what i would want. Now its all up to him to do the rest! its a three stone princess cut and there are engravings and little diamonds on the band…GORGEOUS! I thought i wanted a princess cut solitaire…but something about it just didnt look right on my finger…i HIGHLY suggest trying a similar ring on before you get it because what you like in magazines/pictures may not be what you like on your finger!

Yes – we’ve gone ring shopping together a couple times, and we have the ring all picked out.  It’s the Tacori 2501.  It’s a solitaire ring with surprise stones in the setting for the diamond.  It’s nothing like anything I’ve seen before, and I loooove it.  I can’t wait until it’s on my finger!
