- Wedding: September 2016 - Hunting Hill Mansion
Hello, Bees! I’m in need of the expertise of The Hive!
After sitting down to plan our budget for our big move next summer, my SO, James, and I have come up with what I think is a great solution to lessening one of my all-time major stressors: money! During our chat, we came up with the plan for James to propose with a ring of his choosing that I would wear until we have all of the cash saved up for the e-ring I’ve decided upon. That way, we can save up for the move without the added pressure of saving up for the ring all at once. We don’t believe in buying anything we can’t afford to pay for in cash (credit cards are a big no-no!) so, as graduate students, even the relatively inexpensive e-ring I’ve chosen is still a pretty big financial commitment for us — check out my thread about coming to a decision on the Amora Gem here:

With this “temporary” ring, I still get all the pomp and circumstance of having a ring on my finger to show off once be pops the question. And as much as I thought I hated surprises, I love the idea of James picking something out and having it be a total mystery until the day I get to say, “yes!”
He asked me to make him list of all of the gemstones I liked and that’s where I was stumped. Emeralds are very high on my list, but I am also head-over-heels for rubies, opals, sapphires, labradorites, and everything in between. Because this ring will be moved from my left hand to my right once I get the Amora Gem, I was really hoping to give him a few suggestions that would “match” my e-ring so that wearing both rings together wouldn’t appear too disjointed.
Here’s a photo of my future e-ring:
I also wear this Trollbeads charm bracelet on my left arm everyday (I literally never take it off). The greenish-blue-grey faceted bead — and my favorite — is a labradorite.
Here is the matching necklace that I wear regularly. It is a long drop pearl necklace.
Because these are the ONLY two pieces of jewelry that I wear, I was hoping that my future RHR will match nicely with both of them and my e-ring as a set.
What does everyone think would look nice as e-ring turned RHR? Which gemstones would look best, if I should suggest a gemstone at all?
I LOVE the rings over at Vestigia Fortuna. I was thinking about sending my SO a link to her site! Which one of these rings would you “wish list”?

Thanks in advance! <3
