 1. How long have you and your SO been dating?

Four years, two months, three days

 2. How old are both of you?

Twenty-seven

 3. How long have you been waiting?

Approximately one and a half years

 4. Do you have a timeline (if so, what is it)?

Not really… I told him before we have children. He wants to get me pregnant in the Spring and still no ring. We’ve decided to either elope or have immediate family only so I’m assuming the ring will be on my finger by the end of 2014 (hopefully in New York where we’re going in November for my birthday) and get married in the Spring before conceiving.

 5. Have you discussed or looked at rings with your SO?

All I know is he has his grandmothers ring which I will be getting and it’s ‘a beaut’.

 6. What ring do you want? *Post a pic if you want*

<div style=”overflow: hidden; color: #000000; background-color: #ffffff; text-align: left; text-decoration: none;”>I would like a simple gold band with a square-cut solitaire, but I’m also not picky and would like anything (except I kinda hate pear-cuts).</div>

  • Wedding: dont know

1. We’ve been dating a little over 5 years

2. I’m 22 and he’s 27

3. I’ve been waiting 4 to 4 1/2 years but picked my ring last March.

4. I don’t have a timeline other than “when we can afford it” he seems to think within the next year I’d say probably more like 2.

5. We looked at an estate jewelry sale fair and I immediately found my dream ring, we got it changed to yellow gold and I haven’t seen it since before it was changed.

6.  It’s got three diamonds (my birth stone) in a row and they are so perfect and shiny and have little rainbow in them from the way they reflect.  It should similar look like this.

SoonToBeMrsT16:  That is so intricate and interesting.  It’s not my style because it’s kind of distracting to me but it’s really beautiful.

Countrygirl2014:  Thanks! Funnily enough, I had been talking for the longest time about something simple and classic like a regular round solitaire, but that ring (and Verragio’s Insignia collection in general) changed the game for sure.

I’m new to the boards, so count this as my intro! ๐Ÿ™‚

1. How long have you and your SO been dating? 2.5 years almost exactly.

2. How old are both of you? we’re both mid twenties, but I’m a couple years older.

3. How long have you been waiting? we knew this was it since our first date, so since then I suppose.

4. Do you have a timeline (if so, what is it)? engaged very soon, married in 2ish years (we’re both pursuing advanced degrees at the moment).

5. Have you discussed or looked at rings with your SO? WE JUST BOUGHT A RING LAST WEEK

6. What ring do you want? we bought a three stone ring in yellow gold, all stones are gorgeous white sapphires with the center stone larger than the side stones.

1. How long have you and your SO been dating?  Four and a half years

2. How old are both of you? I’m 25, my SO is 26

3. How long have you been waiting?  About two years since I decided I was ready to marry him. Although he started taking me ring shopping back in May- so since then for sure!

4. Do you have a timeline (if so, what is it)?  We want to get married in 2016, by then I’ll be finished my second degree and I’ll be working. He has said he’d propose by the end of the summer…so I suppose we’ll see.

5. Have you discussed or looked at rings with your SO?  Yep. We shopped together. So I had “input” in what my ring looks like but I did not get to pick it out entirely to my own preferences.

6. What ring do you want? <br />Initially a princess cut diamond solitaire in yellow gold. Although I fell hard for an estate piece that was a gorgeous pear solitaire in white gold. I’ve been informed that my ring is neither of these rings- but you asked me what ring I wanted, not which ring I’m getting ๐Ÿ˜›

Oooh can I join?!  I just joined the forum today ๐Ÿ™‚

1. How long have you and your SO been dating?  Just under 2 years

2. How old are both of you? I’m 32, my SO is 31

3. How long have you been waiting?  I don’t know if I am officially waiting yet but we’ve talked a lot about marriage and children, he’s definitely the one and we looked at rings last week so I guess a week!!

4. Do you have a timeline (if so, what is it)?  We want to get married in 2016 but would like to be engaged for a year to enjoy it so I would hope it’ll be no later than summer 2015! eeks!

5. Have you discussed or looked at rings with your SO?  We literally looked in Tiffany’s and one other jewellers and he looked up a bunch of rings and stones online and asked me what I thought of them!  He also asked me my opinion on a variety of friends and celebrities’ rings (to guage my opinions I’m guessing!!)

6. What ring do you want?  I don’t know!  I LOVE the idea of an emerald cut stone with side stones – not sure what shape but perhaps something like this… (he could have something completely different in mind!

1. How long have you and your SO been dating?

A little less than 2 years

 2. How old are both of you?

I am 24, he is 30

 3. How long have you been waiting?

Only a few months

 4. Do you have a timeline (if so, what is it)?

Probably some time in the next year.

 5. Have you discussed or looked at rings with your SO?

We’ve looked at rings when we have been passing jewellery shops, but we haven’t been on one of those official ‘ring-finding’ trips! He knows what I like though, so I trust his decision!

 6. What ring do you want? *Post a pic if you want*

I’m from England and there are loads of beautiful antique jewellery shops in Brighton. I would love for it to come from there. I have toyed with the idea of a sapphire but my mind changes all the time! So I’m quite open to whatever happens to come my way!

  • Wedding: October 2015

1. How long have you and your SO been dating?

We have been dating almost 2 years. Our story is kind of cute. We met in 2003 in college. He was head over heels over me, but was too nervous to tell me. I started dating someone else and it crushed him (I had no idea). He started dating someone and I broke up with my boyfriend. He was happy but still always thought about me. Over time we lost touch because 1. he couldn’t deal with being around me and his Girlfriend and 2. his Girlfriend was the worst! We reconnected at a wedding. He told me from the minute he got the wedding invitation (he knew I was in the wedding being very very close with the bride) he was looking forward to seeing me. We started “dating” and after 4 months of this, I finally asked him on our first “real” date lol. The rest is history!

2. How old are both of you?

I’m 29 and he’s 31. He’ll be 32 in November and I’ll be 30(!!!!!!) in May 2015

3. How long have you been waiting?

Technically I’ve been waiting forever to marry the man of my dreams! ๐Ÿ˜‰ But we looked at rings in May

4. Do you have a timeline (if so, what is it)?

We already picked a date for a wedding and he has the ring in his office! So anytime (I hope)

5. Have you discussed or looked at rings with your SO?

Yup! he has no taste and the idea of him picking it out on his own scared him more than me (and that scared the crap out of me lol)

6. What ring do you want? *Post a pic if you want*

<div style=”overflow: hidden; color: #000000; background-color: #ffffff; text-align: left; text-decoration: none;”>We have been dating for almost 7 months. I know it sounds like we’re jumping the gun a bit, but I really feel like we’re meant to be. Our parents have known each other from college, but we didn’t know this until this year when we started dating (we didn’t know each other for a very long time before that). After we started dating, we quickly realized we’re soulmates and our parents reconnected after 25 years since graduation.</div>

However, come this September he started talking more and more aboiut rings and today he wants me to show him the kind of ring I want. Tomorrow he said we’ll go at the mall to find out my ring size (I’ve got really thin fingers).</div>
