    Fiance picked it out himself but he got some ideas from mutual friends (who I had told πŸ˜‰ ) I had no idea of his budget and I couldn’t have picked out something more perfect!

    It is really crazy how many different rings there are on here! It is kind of neat how different everyone’s tastes are!

    I didn’t just give him an idea, I pointed and said, “This one.”

    My SO had no clue none – when I said white gold or platinum, his response was “I thought you wanted a diamond ring? Not a gold ring.” I tried explaing that the band is metal and then you get a diamond center stone. But once I started in on carat weight etc he looked so lost! I went to a local jewler and chose these two rings (L-Hearts on Fire, R-Scalloped Band w Diamonds), I looked at 0.3-0.4 carats on my 5.5 finger. We are not engaged yet so we’ll see which one he picks!! The one on the right was taken in store and is not set, just placed with a diamond.

    We found a ring we both liked while we were looking at a jewelry store. He then worked with a jeweler he knew to design my ring like the one I tried on but with a few changes. He did a GREAT job, and he listened to me so well! πŸ˜‰

    I picked out the setting online years ago and bookmarked it.  FI took it to a friend of the family jeweller who custom made the ring exactly like the image I had chosen.  FI picked out the diamond. Truthfully, I hope to upgrade the diamond one day because I feel that the setting belittles the diamond.  However, he did pick out one hell of a sparkler (it appears white in unnatural light). He chose quality over quantity, and I am very happy with the way it looks!

    We went ring shopping 1x and I showed him what I liked, but never tried on anything as similar to what he got because the jewlers like Kay and Zales didn’t have any.  He went through a better jewler in our home town and found the exact ring I was hoping for

    I can honestly say I do not have ring envy!  Yay!  All very beautiful, but not the ones for me!  πŸ™‚

     

    The Fiance chose it himself.  Over the years we have had MANY convos about it.  I wanted flashy & unique.  I think he did good.  πŸ™‚

     
    And what it’ll look like with the wedding band:
     
      He wasn’t sure if I would want the band made for it, or another.  I am thinking this one will do nicely!  πŸ™‚
