orangeblossomspecial:  This thread is amazing.  I admit after seeing some rings on here, I have thought negatively about my ring at times.  But then I remember that my fiance took time to get my ring custom made, and picked out every detail on his own. Its more than just the 4 c’s or what other people think of it, it is a symbol of our life together.  Thanks for posting 🙂


Here is my yellow gold emerald cut designed just for me!

I don’t think it’s petty to be annoyed by deception.  It doesn’t make sense for someone to deliberately mislead others and then play the victim when people are rightfully upset about needless fibs. 

I’m not disputing that Bees can be bitchy or harsh. This is the internet. However, in this particular case it is rather brave to fabricate things and then point the finger at everyone else for being “petty” or “dramatic.”

I love my e-ring (and wedding band). It was not expensive, but I love it anyway. I did not have an engagement ring with my first marriage, and I really just wanted the symbolism of the promise to marry. Sapphires are my birthstones and I love the color blue, so this was perfect for me.

I love the spirit of this thread!  

I’ve never really had ring envy (although I love rings and want them ALL!), but I’ll admit to getting caught up in being over-critical for every minute detail of my ring.  My fiance and I spent a lot of time and money to design something we both love, and I wanted it to be perfect to both of us.  But anything a human hand touches is bound to have imperfections.  Do I get annoyed that the prongs sometimes still snag my hair or clothes?  Sure, but I love my ring and I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world!
