I still love love love my engagement ring and admire it’s sparkle a lot! I’m not in love with my wedding band. I didn’t like the matching band and we can’t afford to design one, so eventually when we have the money we’re going to design a matching band. We decided that when we bought it.

I’ve only been married for a few months, and only received my ring in December, but I still love it and don’t ever intend on changing a thing.

Been married almost two years. Still love my ring, but I’m definitely not obsessed with it like I was at first. I’ve also discovered it’s a bit impractical for daily wear for a few reasons, so I do plan on getting another ring at some point. But it won’t “replace” it, just be another option.

I love it as much as the day we got engaged, probably more!

Got engaged in 2012, married at the end of 2013… Still love and stare at my ring (now rings) wayy too much. I keep mine looking pretty new because I clean them fairly often.

missanj:  I still love my ring. My husband actually offered for me to buy a 2.5 carat but the more I thought abut it and the more I browsed the settings the more I realized I love my ring and wouldn’t want. Bigger/different one

I wore my original rings for 11 years. I reset my diamond for a couple of reasons. But I will tell you, I never didn’t LOVE my original rings and am sad I changed them. I don’t love the new setting as much, but it is more practical. Maybe it will grow on me!

I was never really in love with my ring, so I continue to feel a little ambivilent about it. I love the guy who gave it to me more and more every day, so honestly, that’s more important to me.

I love my ring more now married than when engaged. Idk what it is. Maybe its because it has its matching wedding band by its side and/or that Darling Husband gets to wear his ring everyday as well to show our commitment, so it means a lot to wear the rings & that makes me love them even more. Either way, Darling Husband did a great job picking a ring that he thought both of us would love.

I still absolutely adore my rings! But yes, the honeymoon is over and I don’t sit around staring at my ring with a doofy grin on my face the way I did for those first few months. ๐Ÿ™‚

My ring sits up high and I was always smacking it on things in the begining. I’m used to it now and that almost never happens anymore. So you get used to those less practical settings with a little time. fyi

On the other hand, if it’s important to you, don’t sacrifice comfort just to fit in the box of what an engagement ring “should” be. My sister has super low-profile setting that looks like a flower. It’s the most gorgeous thing I’ve ever seen.

I still love mine after almost 19 years. We picked it out together. He was 21 and just starting out in the world, and the ring was almost twice his small budget. I was a little older and had a little savings, and explained that pretty soon it would be our money anyway, so what difference did it make if I kicked in some to get a ring I really loved, that would symbolize the beginning of our life together. He liked it too and wanted to see me happy — I’m glad we agreed becaues I truly love this ring. We’ve talked about upgrading but I can’t find anything I like better. I’d probably end up wearing it on my right hand anyway and keeping my little precious right where she is.

still stare at my ring.. Got my ring in February of 2013, got married in October of 2013 and still love my simple solitaire, I clean it daily because I like to see it sparkle… I still love looking at it in the sunlight and in the lightiing in my office building.  I don’t take pics of it anymore, I am past that.. but I still look at it.. not sure that will ever change.
