    Non-typical because it was custom built by a family jeweler, lol.

    @mrspinesol:  Thank you! My ring was originally in yellow gold and was my grandma’s wedding set. It was designed by Blackman Jewelers on Lido Island in Newport Beach, California, so I think they were really going for a maritime theme when it was designed, lol.

    My mom has a tanzanite ring and loves it! She used to love visiting Tanzania.

    @inukoro1177:  Seems kind of rude to all of us who have what you disparagingly call “typical” rings. I have a classic diamond solitaire and I love it – but I had the choice to use an heirloom opal “non-typical” ring as my engagement ring. I chose the solitaire because I like a classic, traditional look. Some women choose modern or unusual styles, some don’t.

    It’s totally fine to start a thread for bees to show off their unusual ring, but did you really have to add a snarky comment about all of us who have similar/traditional ring styles? I for one don’t appreciate it.

    You’re right that it doesn’t matter how much he/she spent or how sparkly it is – but that applies to ALL rings, not just the ones you yourself deem “typical” (read: unoriginal, boring, etc). If you’re going to show off your ring on the Bee, you might as well try not to belittle other people’s choices.

    @allyfally:  I’ve said it before, but I looove your ring!!

    @thejucheidea:  your ring is so unique, I love it! Is that all one ring or does it have a wrap/two bands around it? From the top view it almost looks like an oyster shell with diamonds inside! Do you have pics of it from different angles?

    @inukoro1177:  Seems like almost every bride has just about the same ring. To the point were it doesnt matter how much he spent and how sparkly it is, if its just so typical.

    I came into this thread to chime in with my atypical (no such word as non-typical, just FYI) rings, but your comment rubs me the wrong way. So all of the women with “typical” rings (and what the heck does that even mean, anyway? Round brilliants? Solitaires? White gold/platinum?) must have rings that don’t matter, are meaningless, and are useless because you don’t deem them unique? What about the love behind the ring? What it represents? How much the man had to work and save up to buy something to represent his love for his future wife? None of that matters?
