Well I’ve seen that exact ring, and have an ideaof the cost… It’s beautiful, and expensive (in my eyes), and like at least 7 times what my Fiance paid for mine 😉 lol! I have a morganite solitaire. I also have a morganite with sapphire halo that wont get worn bc its too big, lol! A friend of mine doesn’t have a ring but she is very married. Another has 2 rings and is very much single… What I’m trying to say is…it doesn’t make you and more or less married. Sometimes I wonder if people even see my ring…I know lots of people disregard it but that because I look like a 15 year old. It’s easier for them to see my son and say, “okay” verses seeing my ring and saying, “okay” or hearing me say I’m a month away frombeing 27 and say,”okay” LOL! Anyways love your ring 🙂

yay another morganite girl! Isn’t it a lovely stone with a wonderful meaning! How long have you had yours? Is it showing signs of wear? One of the pther things i am worried about!

I’ve had it since September. The gold has scratched but the stone is fine. I clean it every few days and if I’m going out. Im gonna get it re dipped before the wedding, so I do wish my ring came in a stronger gold but I’ve knocked it around lots with no problems. I love morganite even more because it’s the ‘pink emerald’ and my fiancé and son are May (emerald) babies.

@TG123: I frequently get told how unique or different my ring is, and personally, it’s my favourite compliment.
In the UK, solitaires on plain bands, or 3 stone rings, are the norm; though you’re starting to see diamond-set shoulders in the younger generation. Mine is an antique-style cluster, so, it IS very different to the ‘typical’ engagement ring you see here. Which is precisely what I wanted: a solitaire wasn’t me, and nor was a three-stone; I don’t mind halos, but wanted something more ‘vintage’ looking and more unusual for my engagement ring.
So for me, these are the best compliments: being told it’s pretty/beautiful/very sparkly? Yeah, that’s nice. But most diamond rings are. Not all rings are unusual/unique/different though, and given that that is what I wanted my ring to be, that for me is the best compliment someone can give me.
Now, if they were saying it in a certain tone eg ‘Oh, umm, yeah, that’s ‘unique” with some kind of hint of bitchiness, that would be different; but whenever I get this it’s usually phrased as follows: ‘Oh my god, that is so unique/different! It’s beautiful!’. Which is lovely 🙂
