carmen22 :  My fiancée proposed to me by surprise. She didn’t want an ering. So just me and we originally thought of having similar wedding bands but she wants plain white gold band and with my ring being a little bling bling I will get a complimentary ring instead of a matching one to her.

She will get my finger print on the inside of hers and I will either do that or get one of the stones on my wedding ring to be her birth stone. Just depends on the style that will fit with my ring. ๐Ÿ™‚

My friend and her wife planned to prospose on the same trip and neither knew!! So they both had a surprise propsal of their dreams about a week apart on the same 3 week trip and have completely different rings as it was totally unplanned. I thought that was fun!

Top: my original e-ring, and my partner’s “engagement watch”. She didn’t want an e-ring, but I did propose with the watch (after she had proposed to me, and fortuitously, the night before the Supreme Court rules gay marriage was legal).

Bottom: after damaging my high-set e-ring several times, we opted to upgrade in a similar setting rather than start from scratch. My band matches, and her wedding band will have a feature similar to a knife edge, so it will compliment.

ours are totally different… different metals, different stones, diffrent styles but they are both a form of solitaire

as a man and a woman it would be hard to have the same one as it would either be too feminine or too masculine

Me and my partner are not engaged yet but we have looked at rings, we both like a certain ring so it’s likely we will get that but in different metals. She likes platinum and I like rose gold. We wouldn’t mind if we had different rings though, it’s just by chance that we like the same one.

An old friend from school recently got engaged to her girlfriend. They both have the same engagement ring, it’s a kite set princess cut on quite a thin band. I don’t know the specs, but they look to be around a half a carat, and I love them. So pretty.

My friends proposed to eachother at the same time. They each got a ring that suited their tastes. One is a very modern/simplistic tension ring while the other’s is a blingy cathedral set.

Congratulations on the upcoming proposal! smile

My fiancee gave me a round halo with a pave setting on the band. She is currently still wearing a band I gave her a couple months after we started dating that is engraved with “My Heart is Yours Forever”, as she is very sentimental and doesn’t want to part with it. She would be happy wearing that indefinitely but I think I will also get her a pave band and have “My Heart is Your Forever” engraved inside. Then she can choose to wear it as her wedding band or right hand ring. I just want to surprise her with something a little sparkly. laughing

Our rings are very similar.   My fiancée gave me my ring first. It was a complete surprise.   It’s an antique,  circa 1940s.    She said found it on a website and immediately knew it was perfect for me… And it is!     I knew I wanted to surprise her with something special as well.    I search so many websites and visited several jewelry stores.   I initially wanted to get her an antique too,  but nothing really spoke to me.    Then I decided to custom make one.   I design it so it would look similar to mine, but be different enough that it would reflect our different styles.  Here is a picture of our rings from our engagement photoshoot. Mine is on the left and hers on on the right.

  • Wedding: June 2018 - It\'s old barn, in ethnographic museum. It\'s my fiance tradition to get married there. As all family members been married there as well.

We are butch-femme couple. And my girl really disliked any idea of having classic diamond ring. I kind of agreed in that. Wouldn’t fit her either. She loves it so much, that thinking to keep it as wedding band.

I think our engagement rings are a little bit of both – they’re both recycled rose gold so they’re the same color and match in that way but mine is a more traditional solitaire and hers is a hammered band

My fiancée and I have very different rings – I picked hers out and proposed and then we shopped together (twice…the first ring got returned ack) and I ended up with the solitaire. We have very different styles and hers suits her and mine suits me. If she hadn’t liked hers we would have taken it back and gone together, but I’m pretty good at choosing what she likes since I’m the picky nightmare lol

My fiance and I are both very girly and both have erings. We found an amazing jeweler who designed them for us. We choose to have our bands and the part under the stone customized to match. I have a traditional diamond and my fiance wanted a black diamond (so much more affordable and simply beautiful also). We both have halos around our diamonds, but hers is much more unique, as she has a more unique style and likes geometric aspects in all things. The result is 2 highly individual and personalized rings that compliment one another but are still different enough for our pesonalities. We love that the band and basket are matching and the stones and halos still match our individual styles.

Two of my friends are lesbians and are engaged. I wish I had a photo of their rings! They designed them together. One has a sapphire centre stone with a diamond halo and the other has a diamond centre with sapphire halo (if that makes sense!) They will both have matching diamond and sapphire bands.

Well, both my lady and I were getting the idea to propose to each other at the same time but were less clear in our communication than (in hindsight) we should have been. I was lookign at rings for her online and had the idea of getting her an art deco style auquamarine ring since that is both of our birthstone and neither of us likes diamonds. She had her great-grandmother’s art deco ring with a small diamond that she’d been saving to give to the right person. I have a long history of boldy declaring how much I do NOT like diamonds.

So one night we started talking about jewelry and she says, “but don’t you just like how beautiful a nice, round diamond is? One just all by itself?” And I was like well not really but… So then I got it in my head that that is what she wanted. So I eneded up finding a Tiffany-set solitaire for her using an antique stone from Poland (where her family is from). And she polished up her old ring for me.

I was surprised at how cute the ring from her grandmother was and wore it happily for a while even though I never planned on wearing it after we married. I figured I’d switch to a plain band then. But she clearly hated her ring. She thought it was too girly. Apparently when she said the thing about liking diamonds it was because she was trying to sway me toward her family ring. I told her I didn’t care what ring she wore as long as she wanted to marry me, but we left it alone for a few month and she wore it sometimes.

Then we were at a festival in August and both started looking at a jewelry booth. She picked out an auquamarine ring that looked JUST like the one I had picked out for her months before. So I bought it for her. And she bought me a flat ring with amethysts and moonstones in it (purple and green) that is an Edwardian reproduction. And both were under 100 each. We just aren’t diamond people. I love my current ring. I also love that I don’t have to take it off to do yoga since it lies flat. We like color and we don’t care much for expense.

So long story (sorry) short, I’m now trying to sell a ring. I’d love to sell it so we can pay for food at the wedding. 

First photo is our original rings (mine is the square-looking illusion setting). Second is my ring and third hers. I think our current rings work better with each other color-wise. And they look way better in person…
