    He had it in his head for a long time that a solitaire would be perfect, and I never liked them! At the store though, I fell in love and although we went to choose a ring together, I wound up choosing what he was always going to get me anyways.

    SO really liked this.

    I’m not a fan of antique settings, so I chose this.

    My fiance’ had mine customed made. It is a 1.6 ct ice blue sapphire with 26 round diamonds on the band with antique engravings. We wanted something different and unique from all of our family and friends so we went with a sapphire.

    Here are some detail photos he took while deciding on which color sapphire to get.

    @romantical:  Haha, I just re-read my post and realized I left out some key words *head over heels IN LOVE with your ring! Oh boy. It was pretty late at night. Thanks for the instructions!

    @bunnyharriet:  I can’t even begin to explain how addictive this site is. I knew my Fiance (Sounds so weird) had been in to see a  jeweler and was playing the waiting game. One day I did a google image search for rings and it landed me here and the rest is history! I just got proposed to this long weekend! So thrilled!


    Here it is! I can’t seem to capture a decent picture of it though. The lighting is always a bit off. And to answer the question, I had given Fiance an idea of what liked but he custom designed this on his own. We have very similar taste so I’m sure even if I hadn’t told him what I liked, he would’ve gotten me something similar. The only real instruction that he had to follow was it had to be made of a hypoallergenic metal as I’m horribly allergic to nickel and have mental sensitivities in general.

    @bunnyharriet:  Yeah I know,  I’m Catholic, so it works pretty well for me. Although, the current pope is not a fan of the HP series.  I understand where you’re coming from, I just try not to demonize a book for other people’s stupid choices.

    I gave my fiance (very specific and detailed!) input on what I wanted in my e-ring.  We first went shopping together and looked at various types of shapes and I knew I wanted a cushion.  He knew the various specs I wanted and I know he went through over 40 diamonds at good old gold before he ended up with my diamond. 🙂  I also sent him pictures of the type of setting I wanted – something simple with pave diamonds.  I am so happy with my ring!!!

    @bunnyharriet:  Yes! Exactly! I have no idea what I did all day before either! He ended up choosing platinum. Apparently our jeweler said that palladium would be too soft for the diamonds on the pave band. We are having FI wedding band made in palladium though.
