GTKY-Engagment/Wedding Rings!

Since we shared "How we met" and "Wedding Dresses", I think it's only proper to show off our bling!!!

Any special significance? Did your DH pick it out himself?

Re: GTKY-Engagment/Wedding Rings!

  • After getting his tux picked out, I dragged him across the street to get my ring! I was rocking a fake ring due to some financial issues that we had earlier.

    I walked in and pointed to what I wanted and than customized it. It had a round cut, and I wanted a princess cut. DH even upgraded it to a Legacy diamond!

    I absolutely love my ring!

  •  This is almost exactly my ring--round center stone (4 prongs) with baguettes on the sides, set in platinum.

    It;s my dream ring. My grandmother has the same ring and I always loved hers, which I told DH and he remembered.

    No special significance.. I picked out all of our rings, actually. Hubby loves his even though he didnt think he would want diamonds.



  • No special story - he actually bought it from his ex boss who had been carrying it around for ten years because he broke up with his girlfriend before he could propose. He'd asked me if I was okay with having a ring he didn't pick out himself but he got a really great deal on it so it was a big motivator on THIS ring.

    Honestly I can't imagine having another one, even if it's nothing like what I would have picked if I could have.

  • DH actually proposed with just a solitaire.  He told me to go design a ring myself.  He did amazing and knew me too well :)

  • He took my bf to help him design a ring. All he knew was that I like art deco styles.

  • Awwwww, CRUD... I don't know how to post a picture. :(

    Hubby proposed after he had been away with the military 5 months. I had no idea, we had not discussed rings AT ALL. He designed this all on his own and to top it off, one of my side stones if from the ring that his dad proposed to his mom with. (She got an upgrade in the last 20 years) haha. 

  • He proposed with this beautiful, simple solitaire and we picked out the wedding band together.

  • DH proposed, and then we went ring shopping together. Good thing he did this because we have very different tastes, and I probably would've disliked the ring he picked out. Here is a photo of both of our rings :)

  • DH proposed with a ring he designed. It is a round cut with three round diamonds on each side that descend in size. Two of those diamonds are from a pair of earrings his grandparents have his mother. My band is a pave setting we found on a trip to lake Tahoe.

  • DH and I picked out my ring together after we found out we were expecting. I kept pushing for a smaller diamond, but he kept pushing for bigger. I love it!!

    Not the best photo, but it gives the general idea. DH picked out my engagement ring. The wedding band we found together. I love them!

  • DH picked out the engagement ring, but he knew I liked the 3 stone setting. We picked out our bands together at the same time.

    That's the same as I have.  My husband's cousin is a jewelry designer so she made it for me.

  • This was given to us from DH's grandmother, she got it, and never wore it, it was originally gold, I wear silver, so we had it dipped.

  • Crap, I can't get a pic on here right now, but it is a three stone setting, in white gold with open detailing on the sides. I hinted a bit before we got engaged and he listened : also, he proposed at a comedy club! I love that. We both have a weird sense of humor so that worked for us :
  • I don't know how to post a picture so if it doesn't show sorry, but my ring is very significant.  The diamond was in my grandmother and mother's engagement rings before mine.  It goes through the family.  The center stone is round, but my DH liked princess cuts so he put two princess cut diamonds in the mounting with diamonds running up both sides to the center diamond and diamonds on both sides of the mounting.

    Newly upgraded, I inherited the center stone from my grandma and DH got it reset for me for Christmas.  The setting is almost identical to the original setting that DH picked out alone.  They couldn't put the new stone in the old setting because it was significantly larger.

    Dh picked out my engagement ring, we picked out our wedding bands together. It's exactly what I always wanted :) 

  •  

    My husband and I went shopping together for a long time before stumbling across this ring.  Once I saw it I knew I wanted it.  Unfortunately we originally found it in a high end jeweler and the price was way beyond what I was going to let my husband spend.  He was able to find it through a 'chain' jewelry store and even convinced the woman to convince me that she was unable to get it.  Successfully convinced that i couldn't get the ring I picked out two alternatives and when he proposed I was completely SHOCKED when I saw that it was the ring I wanted.  My band matches.  My husbands wedding band is my Great-Grandfathers and is going to become a family heirloom. My stone is actually a marquise cut.

  • My ring was DH's grandmas ring. If I had picked a ring, it would have been platinum, and a little bit bigger diamond, but my ring has a lot of meaning and value behind it, so I don't mind the color so much. DH's grandfather proposed to his grandma on Christmas eve, which is when we got engaged (DH did not know this at the time). The diamond is the original diamond, and the setting is from his grandparent's 50th Anniversary. Sorry for the blurry pic!

     We looked together and DH ended up getting the one I really loved when we looked- not his style  but he got what made me happy :)

    The main stone is aquamarine.  I didn't want the traditional diamond. I never get to wear my engagement ring because of work.
