I was so surprised by his proposal that I was wowed there was a ring at all! But two years later and I still gaze at the sparkly, I think it’s just what I’d have chosen myself-I didn’t have to learn to love it.

I love my ring! It’s unique and completely ‘us.’  We picked it out together and I had a ton of input. I think being a part of the process and having a say in the ring I’ll be wearing forever was more important to me than the suprise factor.

My dad worked as a jeweler for many years and he’s a bit of a diamond snob, I don’t think he approves of my stone (it’s essentially a very included, ‘flawed’ diamond) but the choice was between me and my partner. Don’t let your mom’s opinion sway you! It’s your ring, your engagement, and your marriage.

I hope you find a ring you love! Don’t forget to come back and show us!

Here’s mine! Even though I saw photos and was a part of the design process, I was still WOWed and teary when he proposed.  I also wanted something unique, so we got an entire engagement suite! (plus I get to pick out wedding band(s) later).

My ring is a simple round diamond solitiare.  It is everything I wanted!  I did not go for a fashion statement but something that would be timeless.  I think its absolutely beautiful, understated and doesn’t conflict with my fashion choices.

gardnerg :  I haven’t gotten through all of the comments yet and I just wanted to say “I feel you” I adore fashion, accessories, bags n shoes,etc and I was not wowed by my rings/engagement set (I wanted a heart solitaire) then quickly grew to LOVE em! We picked out a pre-owned set b/c of our finances and then he got a promo/raise the same month we got engaged ๐Ÿ˜ eh, that’s life! Yes I’ll get a bigger diamond in the future, but once we’re married and I have three rings; I will keep my original…as Bees have taught me there is nothing wrong with having multiple sets.๐Ÿ˜‰ This is my original /forever with all of its beauty, details, flaws, and all. So unique and so ‘me’.

Happy ring shopping/designing to you!

vertabella :  I love unique rings! Your set is so pretty and let’s just say neither of us ever need be concerned that we’ll look across a crowded room and have an um “ring twin”incident lol not that anything is wrong with that ๐Ÿ˜Š

gardnerg :  I was WOWed by mine, even though I hepled pick most of it out! I was lucky enough to get my dream ring, but I am not someone who wears a lot of jewelry, so I probably would have felt the same way no matter what. Sorry, I know that isnt much help for someone who loves jewelry! I do have a fashionista friend, and her and her DH designed a ring together because everything she saw in stores was too ordinary for her.

I AM wowed by my ring because I got to (help) choose it! I originally thought I wanted something more ornate and unique, but I ended up choosing something more simple and timeless, something I know I will never get bored with.

 I love mine! I wanted something different as I’ve done the round, brilliant cut thing before. I love this so much more! Just in the process of choosing a wedding ring to go with it ๐Ÿ™‚

vertabella :  your ring is beautiful!  Do you spend a lot of time staring into the stone at all the special things inside of it? I be it looks like a tiny magical place if you look deep enough. I had never seen a diamond like this before you posted your ring in a different thread. I find them absolutely fascinating!

I was definitely wowed seeing mine in person for the first time (when he proposed), and I continue to be totally obsessed with it (sorry to those of you who are sick of seeing it on here!). But I did do a ton of research (pretty much the whole 2 years we were dating, lol – he was the first guy I wanted to look at rings for!) so don’t give up. Your tastes will likely continue to evolve, and when you hit the one, you’ll know – at least that’s what happened with us ๐Ÿ™‚

I was very “wowed” when i saw it, partly because I was not expecting a proposal, and partly because he had figured out exactly the style I wanted.

That feeling was immediately followed by thinking he spent way too much.

Just got a new ring that my husband upgraded me to. Love it and especially how it matches the wedding band.
