- Wedding: June 2017
I have been following this site for a few years now and after drooling over all of your rings, I finally get to post my own! My Fiance and I have been together since our senior year in high school, so we are on our 8th year of being in a relationship! He (finally!) popped the question on a romantic weekend getaway up north on the beach! I knew it would be coming, but I thought I would have to wait a few more months. We began designing the ring together back in early May and he asked me to marry him on July 22, so I didnt have to wait too long!
When my grandmother on my mom’s side passed away, I was given her engagement ring, which was a round solitare set in a thin 18k gold band. I had always wanted an oval diamond, she we designed my ring to be that shape with my grandma’s diamond in the center. We melted down her setting and reused it for mine as well. I was also given a ring when I visited my other grandmother a few months ago and we used two small diamonds from her ring to be set into the band. I couldn’t be any happier with how it turned out!
