Can we talk about Engagement Rings?

Off topic.. But I can't do my paper, my job keeps calling me with questions and distracting me like crazy (I took off to do this final today and it's getting nowhere...ugh)

Show me your pretty rings, or your dream rings Smiley Happy

 

This one is my dream ring:

 

....Yeah, I want to marry that ring.

Re: Can we talk about Engagement Rings?

My husband had mine made from a family heirloom engagement ring.  He is such a cutie this way... very special.  It looks very similar to your dream ring.

 

 

 

Oh, and for those concerned these are certified conflict free diamonds (yes diamonds and other stones can be tracked to their source and carry certificates), and the main stone was brought from Israel a long, long time ago.  My ring reminds me every day of my love for my husband and the commitment we made to each other.  I understand that a lot of women "just want to be married" and get caught up in the craziness... but honestly, I never thought I would be married and it took me 37 years to find one I wanted to keep.  I think that deserves a celebration.  I called it a wedding.

 

 

Re: Can we talk about Engagement Rings?

i LOVE that! I would feel so special if I received an heirloom diamond, I don't think anybody would give me one though, lol. The heart detail is so pretty.

Re: Can we talk about Engagement Rings?

I was super surprised!  His family is super small and they don't "come from money" or anything.  This diamond has been passed down in his family for many years.

Re: Can we talk about Engagement Rings?

Please excuse my scary looking hands LOL I am an avid gardener and even with gloves the hands take a beating! This is me and it was just what I wanted:

Re: Can we talk about Engagement Rings?

Love this ring! Looks like something out of The Great Gatsby! So gorgeous! Smiley Happy

Re: Can we talk about Engagement Rings?

Thank you so much! I love older looking antique style jewelry. That's what attracted me to it!!!!!

Re: Can we talk about Engagement Rings?

I love this ring!! It is so pretty and super unique. Omg. I am drooling!!!

Re: Can we talk about Engagement Rings?

Thank you Missie! Smiley Happy 

Re: Can we talk about Engagement Rings?

LOVE LOVE LOVE!! my friends and i recently had a talk about rings and i hope mine is so big that it actually hurts my finger lol...exaggerating...kinda....not really lol...ugh  i love your ring! <3

Re: Can we talk about Engagement Rings?

You don't have to explain yourself to me! I get it- Believe me!! LOL I didn't want a big wedding and we waited a year to take our honeymoon and that leaves a little extra cash lying around. I was willing to sacrifice. Smiley Wink My thought was a wedding lasts a few hours but your diamond is forever! Every time I am mad I just look down at my finger and think about the day I got this ring and what it means--it always helps! 

Re: Can we talk about Engagement Rings?

OMG that is drop dead GORGEOUS.  Would it be terribly impolite for me to ask about more stats/details (like the maker, the size of the diamond, when you bought it, etc.)?  Forgive me if I'm being too nosy, I'm just utterly stunned by your ring's beauty!

Re: Can we talk about Engagement Rings?

I don't think it is impolite. You are very sweet Emmaclaire! I wish I could remember the exact details. The certificate is in the safe deposit box. We bought it on Grand Cayman, the Cayman Islands about 7 years ago at Landmark Jewelers. It's right under 2 carats I think? I used to know exactly. The setting is a double halo in micro-pave'. If you want a very unique piece of jewelry the islands are a great place to look. I've never seen another one just like mine anywhere. 

Re: Can we talk about Engagement Rings?

It won't let me directly reply but Swanbeauty I LOVE LOVE LOVE your setting! It makes it even sweeter that it is an heirloom! 2 thumbs up for your hubby!

Re: Can we talk about Engagement Rings?

Thanks!!  He is a good one!

Re: Can we talk about Engagement Rings?

Thanks Killahbabe!!! (***I wish I could reply directly but my goofy computer won't let me!!)

Re: Can we talk about Engagement Rings?

I love looking at all these beautiful rings!  I went with my fiance to pick my ring because he was way too stressed about picking the right one lol  I'm glad I did because I ended up getting something different than I thought I wanted and I love it! I totally forgot about his ring though.....he lives on the other side of the country and I didn't think about ring shopping for HIM the last time he was out here and he won't be out again until the wedding.  I made him look at bands with me online so I could see what he likes and then was sending him pics of different choices.  We picked one but he won't see it in person until February lol

Re: Can we talk about Engagement Rings?

This Chanel ring is apparently $30,000

 

Re: Can we talk about Engagement Rings?

That ring looks really pretty in this picture, but when I try to imagine it on my finger, it looks like it would stick up super-high and look very ostentatious.  I am glad my wedding ring is modest so I don't feel self-conscious about actually wearing it!

Re: Can we talk about Engagement Rings?

yup its very impractical. 

Re: Can we talk about Engagement Rings?

Ummmmm.... DROOLING!!!!! Fab choice!

Re: Can we talk about Engagement Rings?

I'm a big fan of more simplistic styles for rings, anything more than that looks a big strange on my fingers.

 

I am completely content with a sapphire or a moissanite, as I do not support the diamond industry. Size isn't really a massive favor for me simply due to the fact that there are a lot of other things to take into consideration with a ring aside from size. A good friend of mine is a jewelry and I've tried on some HUGE looking rings only to find out that they're about a carat, but the reason they look so big is due to the amazing color and cuts.

 

The first one is a sapphire, the second is a moissanite (they're ultra sparkly).

 

Whimsically yours,
Janine

Re: Can we talk about Engagement Rings?

Love both of them! I'm also a fan of simple rings. Smiley Happy

Re: Can we talk about Engagement Rings?

That second ring looks EXACTLY like mine (except my center stone has 6 prongs)! Smiley Happy

 

 

Re: Can we talk about Engagement Rings?

Gorgeous ring Killahbabe!!

Re: Can we talk about Engagement Rings?
