MrsGirlyGirl :  my husband is a wedding singer (they get a bad rep from the Adam Sandler movie LOL) but living in a destination wedding spot, he does very well. We would love to live on the mainland (especially now that we have children) but Hawaii is the only place in the country where he can do what he does successfully.

I just recently got engaged at 26. My ring is just over a carat, 1.07 to be exact, and I live in the South.

I’ll be 22 when I’m engaged (have the stone, waiting on the band to be finished) and my stone is 2.61ct. The caveat there is rather than going with a diamond of any kind, it’s black spinel. I wasn’t wild about the idea of a diamond in the first place, and it quickly became apparent that one would be way out of our price range.

Engaged at 27, he’s 34. It’s a half carat heirloom that belonged to his great-grandmother. He proposed with a simple solitaire and had me pick the permanent setting. We turned the old solitaire into the wedding band!

Both 29 at time on engagement. I told him I’d like to be engaged prior to turning 30 and he asked 2 days before my 30th birthday haha! Talk about cutting it close!

My ring is a 2.41 center stone, ~2.75 tcw. I’m in love with the cut and the rose gold flower setting. No surprises here as I designed my own ring with my jeweler. 🙂

We were both 27 when we got engaged mine is a 2.2 ct with a halo – no idea of the total carat weight but I have been sad enough to count how many diamonds are on it and it is circa 50.

My stone is quite large but it is a Peach Padparadscha Sapphire so the price is a lot more palatable than a diamond. I wasnt keen on having a diamond to be fair was a bit too much for me at the size I wanted and I didn’t want to go smaller as I wanted the finger coverage.

We were both 22, we did not go with a diamond but a moonstone, which is my favourite. It was .8 carat equivalent, I lost it unfortunately and the ring I got to replace it is also a moonstone, but a 2.5 carat equivalent oval, I personally love smaller stones but I do have smaller fingers.

The stone is getting set right now! I’m 27 and the diamond is 3.15 ct in the David Yurman Eden Pave setting! This is the stone in the temporary setting and the second picture is the setting it’s going in.
