My fiance proposed with a celtic ring with – gasp – no stone at all!

(Now, I wasn’t the one gasping, but some others might have).We’ve been engaged for 6 months and I have HONESTLY not once had e-ring regret.

I’m not a diamonds type of girl, and without ever really discussing it, he picked this out:

Mine is a little thinner than this one, but you get the idea. 

A very good friend of mine is a jeweler and creates all sorts of fancy (and expensive) one of the kind e-rings, mothers rings, etc…and she’s agreed to make my wedding ring.

Since I have a band, we toyed with an eternity band or something similar. Both of our birthdays are in May, and emerald is the color we’re going with for our wedding (emerald and a lighter green) so I decided I wanted a ring with green stones that doesn’t stick up super far. And I want it to be a little funky.

These are the inspiration pics I sent to my friend who is designing my ring, I get to see her drawings next week! Can’t wait!

@Cappugcino: I LOVE that first one!!!! There’s one I’m considering that looks similar.

 

I’ve never wanted a diamond ring.  Or, if it was a diamond, a black diamond (so pretty!) But now that I’m looking around even more, I can’t deicde!  I’m not engaged yet but we’re thinking about it and my poor boyfriend is being tortured daily with my “Would you buy me this as a e-ring?” he just sighs and goes back to what he was doing.  Embarassed

Ah well – one day, right?

@JuniperSage: I’m so glad someone on the Bee bought this ring! I think many of us have been lusting over it forever. : )

Here’s mine – I’ve had it awhile but realized I never posted it to this (seriously great) thread. I’m wearing it with my fiancee’s wedding ring in the second pic.

ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ๐Ÿ˜€

 

I love this thread and looking and everyone’s rings! I’m so partial to emeralds because you just dont see them often and I grew up obsessed with the wizard of Oz. Not only that, but my grandma always had on tons of emeralds (Irish) lol

 

Im secretly envious deep down because these rings are soooo beautiful. And while I’m super traditional, I have something in me that just loves the colored stones. I will DEFINITELY be looking into a colored gem for a right hand ring tho ๐Ÿ˜€ <3 lovely rings girls!

I’m so happy I can finally post here! I didn’t even think I’d be getting an e-ring cos it’s not too traditional in my Fiance country (Spain) so he totally surprised me. He had me thinking that he was going to get me a bracelet the cheeky monkey. He chose Aquamarine cos it’s mine and his birthstone and we’re also getting married in March… and he knows I have a soft spot for them Laughing.

It’s 18k white gold with 2.22ct square emerald cut Aquamarine, it faces up small at 7.55mm x 7.55mm. I wear a size 5.5.
