Just sent my first ring idea to my guy. First time. New ground for me. And, yes, he asked for it. 🙂 🙂 🙂 But I was wondering what you ladies have sent your guys as suggestions or rings you hope you’ll get when he finally gets around to it? I’ve really liked the movement towards waiting distractions on this board. Not that I want to permanently move away from the point of this board, cause God knows I need help with waiting. Figured we could just have some fun. 🙂
Here’s what I sent:

I haven’t sent him rings, but I showed him this shop on Etsy: http://www.etsy.com/shop/LaurieSarahDesigns I love love love all her stuff!

I haven’t sent him mine yet either, but I’m in love with this one and as soon as we broach the subject of rings this is what I’ll show him:
with a .5ct oval stone.

@LaurenK0105: AH! Thank you so much for this link. Those rings are so different and beautiful. I get tired of seeing the “same” rings all the time.
@Kant: Just wanted to say that I love the smooth, roundedness of the band and oval? I LOVE oval. 😀

I have to agree with Tickles. I didn’t think I’d like oval. But seeing it on something? It’s beautiful.

I’ve shown him this ring. However, I’m pretty sure he is going to go pick out a diamond and have it placed on a plain band so that I can go shopping and decide what I REALLY want afterwards.

Oooohhh! Such pretty rings! I haven’t sent any rings to SO since we went ring shopping in Oct. But we looked at princess cut halos. I’m already starting to forget how they look. But here’s a pic similar to what we looked at. I think the setting will be different though. I think it will be just a plain band.

I haven’t sent my ring to SO because he’s not ready (and honestly the more I think about it I’m not sure I am either). But I already know exactly what I want (I’d actually like my grandmother’s ring but this is what I would want if that didn’t happen). Side note: I’m all for CZ or M too! SORRY IT’S SO BIG!

I sent him the link to this ring after my Valentine’s Day meltdown… he told me he was concerned with money and I told him I would be proud as hell to wear this Moissanite!

I made the mistake of showing SO this ring the first time we talked about engagements and rings. Now I’m left wondering if I should’ve showed him some less expensive ones. Anyways, this is the ring I’ve always wanted.

@smiley3 do you know who designs that ring (or is it personally designed?)
I think Bezel settings are great, but LOVE different versions of them.

@RileyCat: It’s Mark Schneider. I am so in love with his designs, they’re amazing.

I sent him these
This one with the Fleur De Lis but with a Princess cut stone
And this one with a 1.5 Flanders cut stone (kind of a sideways set Princess with the edges rounded off)

@mxpinky: I sent my husband a similar ring or more of a description of a ring I wanted like Tiffany’s only a 1.5-2 carat princess cut solitare in white gold. My example piece of jewelry had a basket setting which he hated, so he got me a V-prong setting to really let light into the diamond and let it shine. I got a 1.71 carat princess cut diamond with a white gold band. I love it.

@claireos:That was one of the ones I sent my BF! The other one I sent was another tacori…
We just went on Sunday to a jeweler to talk settings, and he’s picking out a stone as early as Friday!
ETA: I thought I made it smaller… sorry!!
