  I love it because my fiancé picked it out and designed it himself.  I gave him a few specifics like round diamond, white gold Ect

i also really love the side view πŸ™‚ 

my ring is more simple than most of my friends.  A lot of my friends have fancy halos and side stones that enhance their center diamond.  It’s also a bit smaller in terms of total carat weight.

AylaRabbit:  I wouldn’t have realized it was inclusion until you pointed it out, honestly. Round solitaires are so classic! I love the tapered band.

dachshundpup15:  I think it looks amazing as is. I’m partial to a smaller stones. I think they look confident. A woman who rocks a smaller stone is a woman who doesn’t need to prove herself. I think your ring is sophisticated and beautiful!

I love love love my ring!  I am not a jewlrey person and rarely wear anything so it was quite stressful for me to look at engagement rings.  I picked two that I liked and my fiance secretly had the best parts of the two rings combined.  It is perfect for me.

I’m another bee who isn’t too hung up on clarity, as long as it is still sparkly, and the integrity of the stone isn’t questionable, I’m good! Plus, I absolutely love to get a good deal, which stones in the “I ” clarity range often offer a significant savings over more  “perfect ” diamonds.  The first picture is of a ring that I simply adore,  which has a clarity of i1-i2 listed in the paperwork accompanying the ring.  The second one is an si2 clarity one carat solitaire, wirh inclusions which are visible with the naked eye, but only if iwere to allow a person close enough, for long enough to see.  It is incredibly sparkly! I think the first ring puctured looks like it has a better clarity rating than the second. I will show a puc of the first one shiwing her freckles, and one that doesnt show them as much. I like some other bees, am of the opinion that certain inclusions give a diamond character and help me identify my stone.  Imo, all diamonds are beautiful, as are all engagement rings, promise rings, or other special jewelry that we hold dear πŸ˜€

starla33:  certainly ma’am, it’s actually a DIY acrylic nail kit I bought at wally world, one of the best 8 bucks I ever spent,  because they lasted almost 2 weeks! Lol. .. but I have a nail polish made by wet and wild mega last, called  “pixie trail” that looks just like it in 2 coats. πŸ™‚ thanks for the compliment  bee!  πŸ˜€

orangeblossomspecial:  This  is my very first post since I got engaged. I’ve been waiting for a post that understood me!  My fisnce picked out this ring for me after taking months to figure out what styles I liked. This ring has a 15 month imperfect journey of how it finally got placed on my finger. I learned patience and that my fiancé really and truly knows what’s best for me. He knows me! I’m proud of the journey now. That’s what makes it special. I went through many emotions about wanting a ring that was completely unique and then wondering if it was way too unique. Now, I think it embodies our unique love.  An added plus is that our wedding is 7/7/17 and there are 3 sets of diamond clusters in a row! So, I will always have a symbol of our wedding date embedded in my ring.

dachshundpup15:  Your ring is gorgeous. I would never halo that, it is so beautiful and elegant as it is right now. I have same sort of issues feeling insecure because of the size of my diamond though I’ve had positive supporting comments on the Bee saying it’s lovely. (And hey, what a vain problem to have, so I should feel lucky I have energy to worry about such miniscule things, right? πŸ˜‰ ). I think it’s just always so much easier to have a more objective perspective when it’s not your own ring.. and so I just wanted to say that to me your ring looks very proportionate to your hand, sophisticated and classic.

misslinnea:  orangeblossomspecial:  Thank you ladies for you’re sweet words. I really like the look of my e-ring and wedding band together. So maybe once I get round to actually being married and wearing both rings daily, I’ll keep it as it is πŸ™‚
