I’ve been lurking for a couple of months now but got engaged last week and want to finally post and share my new ring.
I knew it was time to start looking for a ring when I caught my sweetie snooping at my wedding pinterest page (he insisted he was just getting to know me when I asked him about it) and then a few weeks later he asked me which of the four C’s is most important to me lol.
I knew I wanted an antique ring or EXACT reproduction. Vintage inspired rings, though gorgeous, are not exactly my personal aesthetic. I love rose gold and wasn’t sure what kind of stone I wanted. I also wanted something with lots of filagree and detail work but sometimes those rings can get bulky and I wanted my ring to feel dainty and delicate, and I wanted something low profile. I am so so so so picky that I didn’t know how he or I would ever find the perfect one.
There was one ring I loved but was in white gold instead of yellow.
He surprised me by having it made in rose gold. He wanted to order the stone separately since he knew I’ve been leaning towards morganite or a peachy champagne sapphire and he couldn’t get the stone to arrice in time for the proposal (he took me for a little weekend up north) so it just has a CZ in it for the tie being, but I don’t care. I still think it’s bea”utiful.
What’s really special about it is our first name initials are “V” and “W” and on the side of the ring there is a W if you look at it upright and a V if you look at it upside down… You can kind of make it out in the 1st and 5th pictures, but it’s very obvious in real life.
My cellphone pictures don’t even do it justice. I am so happy with the ring! I love the details, the rose gold, the size of the stone (I didn’t want anything over 1 carat), the three tiny diamonds on each side, and how elegant and delicate it feels! I’m so touched that he took the time to find out exactly what I would want and have it made.
