GTKY Friday 9/6 - rings!

Some people have expressed interest in an engagement/wedding ring GTKY so let's do it!

Show us a picture of your rings! Is there a story behind them?

I personally don't have them so I might just post a pic of the ring I've worn every day for ages instead...

  • @ziggymama06 beautiful! Can't go wrong with a classic style. I'm all for more minimal ring styles. Don't get me wrong the more elaborate rings are pretty, but they just don't fit my style.

  • @kpearse99 omg really? Cool. Yay twinzies lol. What part of the DR? Mine was in Punta Cana. My fav place to be. Do you have any plans for your 1 year Anniversary on Monday? 
    photographerwife
  • @mindyb2019 it was also in Punta Cana!! At the Hard Rock Hotel.. we were there for a concert series with friends called “One Big Holiday”.  He was soooooo nervous that he ended up proposing in the hotel right after we got into the room 😂 i was sitting on the bed and We were looking at a map of the resort. He pointed out the wedding planning spot and then got down on one knee! It was so sweet and so perfect, because he is not one one to be center of attention! 
    We are going into Philly this weekend for a fancy dinner and staying overnight! 

    @bows22 it’s beautiful!! ♥️♥️

  • @kpearse99 lol thats awesome. What a small world. Mine was at a hotel just down from the Hard Rock Hotel lol and I have actually been in that hotel before. Did you play the mini golf they had outside? We did and it was fun. My DH was soooo nervous at the time too when he proposed. 😆 aww that sounds soo sweet. ❤️ That’s awesome your going into Philly for the weekend. A fancy dinner and staying over night sounds like a good anniversary. He better get you some flowers lol 🌹🌹🌺🌸 I hope you Have a great Anniversary!! 
  • @keikilove I'm a financial advisor. I talk to people about money all day long - then sometimes I forget it's weird and talk about it in social contexts. "So, what do you think your monthly necessary vs discretionary spending is?" *awkward look from friends I am out to dinner with*

    @saladflambe ; mention of a child in the spoiler, but a funny story from a friend
      A friend lost hers for over a year too! She found it in their toddler's bedroom. Side eye was given to the little guy. "Did you take mommy's rings?"

  • @whatsbumpinpumpkin that’s gorgeous! I love the bezel setting too! I bet it stays cleaner longer that way. I’m not sure about my stone tbh, but it is pink irl. The cage underneath makes it photograph more orange since they’re slightly clear! 

    This is my favorite kind of thread. I’m a wedding photographer part time and oohing over everyone’s jewelry and wedding stories! 💕

  • @konoha I have a similar story except my engagement ring didn't fall into the garbage disposal but one of the bathroom sinks. I was taking my ring off so I could clean the sink and counter and it slipped out of my hands. I couldn't catch it before it fell down the drain. DH opened the pipes below the sink to fish it out. My hero! He told me to either keep it on or not take it off right over the sink in the future. :D I felt bad that he had to spend the time to fish it out but I was very grateful.

  • @inthewoods23 oh my gosh!! that is my fear with my wedding band, I've had it slip out of my hands too by the sink so I really gotta be careful!! That's great he was able to get it for you!! I wouldn't have thought it could've been found but I've heard stories like that before! Its those things that remind us how grateful we are for the men in our lives  :D I wish I didn't turn my disposal on before I realized it was missing, that was horrifying reaching my hand in there and pulling out my mangled ring. Probably should've tried harder to find the diamonds but I was so upset and didn't think they'd still be in the pipes and I couldn't feel them in the disposal. rip.
