fatima.o.snaap:  GORGEOUS. I love the purple!!! Don’t let what anyone else says get to you. As a PP said, ANY ring can be an engagement ring. :)<br /><br /><br />My dark yellow sapphire! It was originally a citrine (I picked it out), which I didn’t realize was so soft. We had it replaced once it started getting scratched and facets started wearing down.

MrsSnowMountain:  Awww! I was hoping you’d say, “And now I wear it ALL THE TIME!” because I just LOVE this set! It is so dainty, so femininte, so whimsical and it is such a bright and brilliant yellow gold.  I LOOOOVE yellow gold and love the warmth of it.  I hate to hear that you have received comments from people who are so brainwashed and programmed to have a set image in their minds of what an engagement ring looks like and can’t who can’t appreciate the beauty and uniqueness of stunning pieces of fine jewelry like yours.  There is truth that the negative comments seem to sting the most and last the longest but just know that you would really be surpised at the number of people who really love it and how seeing your set inspires them to really go for what their heart desires too.  If you love it, PLEASE enjoy it! We only have one life to live and life is too short to waste any opportunity for happiness. <3

ddhb2007:  I love the color of your stones so much!! What sort of stone is the engagement ring and then the wedding band? Can’t take my eyes off the color. <3

ComputerLove06:  Awwwww thank you so much for your very kind comments! <3 TBH one major reason I don’t wear it is not all that dramatic, it’s just that I really don’t like the gap! I do still wear it some days as a RHR, just not as part of the “set.” But it is truly hard to say how much of that decision is due to my own changing tastes, and how much has sunk in from others’ negativity :/ I know I will never trade it in, I will still keep it as a RHR even after I upgrade because it is the history of who were were when we got engaged – namely, broke!!! lol.

antoniathegreat:  Wow what a beautiful warm sunny colour! ๐Ÿ™‚ Your band is cool too, it reminds me of lace just a little.

fatima.o.snaap:  I would say people consider my untraditional because it’s a gemstone (but not a sapphire or emerald) which I guess most people associate with being more appropriate as a ering.

I love it though ๐Ÿ™‚

Old estate ring. Diamonds and rubies. I love it but some don’t, but who cares? As my Fiance said it is “us” one hundred percent….different…lol.

K.bee:  Thank you! Something like 10% of people like it….lol. The rest say it is impractical and not a true engagement ring….whatever! Jealousy is a curse right….lol. I love the diamond shape look of your ring….they are too big for my little finger (space between proximal knuckles is too short) but a truly vintage style and unique….you are as equally lucky!

Monikax3x3:  Thank you! I have seen your ring in other posts….pear shaped diamond right? It is lovely. I am a fan of the pear shapes, I prefer them to solitaires.

Monikax3x3:  I have no idea what to do there. I love the twisted rings…simple and dainty but I can’t make it work with my ring. On the other hand I don’t always wear the ring cause I am worried I will lose a stone. My jeweller said if I lose a ruby I am in big trouble because it is old and a new ruby won’t match….arghhhh! Now I am paranoid. Doesn’t help that I am a total clutz. I am a Libran so naturally I am pretty indecisive…lol.

One_Day_Ill_Bee_Mrs_G:  thank you, so is yours ๐Ÿ™‚ mine is actually from Costco! If you’d have told me that before we bought it I would’ve never believed you, but any other place we saw a similar one it was set in yellow gold, and I’m not a big fan of yellow gold with my skintone.

While I’m looking at all these pictures of beautiful engagement rings, it makes me feel so sad to see that some of you had experienced distasteful comments about yours. Please don’t pay them any mind! The peanut gallery is just that – the peanut gallery. Take solace in the fact that they are small-minded people and your engagement ring is gorgeous, made even more so because it’s not a cookie-cutter e-ring!
