Another great way to show it off is when you are signing your credit card receipt! Just stick your finger out there when you are holding the little slip of paper in place to sign

Here's my rock:



It's 3/4 carat set in 18K white gold, color H/I and it's EGL/UN certified as not being a conflict stone and there's other stuff about it that I don't remember, but all in all, impressive that a college-age guy had the discipline (and job!) to save up for this baby! I LOVE it...I'm into things that are really simple and elegant and kind of understated. The only other jewerly Ian ever got me was an 18K white gold locket with tiny little pictures of us in it. I wear that a lot, too!

Tanya, I like your tip for showing it off. Flute playing is another great way to do so, since you left hand is turned and faces directly out towards your teacher/audience/colleagues!

That is one beautiful ring!!

Here's mine...he gave it to me last May

My first ring was a heart shaped diamond (can't rmember the size, not huge, but not tiny either) but one day after we got married it dawned on me that with the wrap, it had a total of 13 stones. I'm not superstitious, but that just BUGGED me! Well this January we went to the jeweler to have it inspected for the warranty, and they were running an "upgrade" special and we decided to get a new ring set. This one is worth twice what the old one was (but they gave us credit for the value of the old one), and is MUCH prettier. I get tons of comments on it. The main stone is still heart shaped, but a little bigger, and the wrap has three small inlaid diamonds on either side, and a larger oval shaped diamond on either side of the main diamond. The band is 14k gold. I absolutely LOVE this ring. Just love it! Sometimes I just sit and look at it!

That's a beautiful ring! The cut on the stone is so unique. I don't know that I've seen that before!
I found out my fiance' was thinking about getting married at Sam's Club, when I went to look at their rings and he commented that Shane Co. had better prices!
When I wormed it out of him (at the fish section!), I immediately started looking around for local jewelers. I love jewelry, I've got at least 6 or 7 jewelry boxes full, so no way was I not having a say on the most important piece I'll ever own!
I was really lucky to stumble across www.jacquelinesanchez.com and ended up with this ring!



It has the gold rivets like this ring




and the smaller diamonds like this one.

My fiance's is the same shape with a thicker band, but with gold inset where my diamonds are and the rivets polished smooth and a half circle where my pearl is.
We were also super lucky that right as we found her, she wanted to redo her website, so we just traded, service for service!
These are our engagement and wedding rings. My parents only ever had one each, and I like the idea that we both can wear our rings before we're married.

Yes, I know I'm only 20, but I've been dating this character for 2 and a half years and he's been telling me he wants to spend the rest of his life with me for, oh, 2 years of that and....yeah. No conclusive plans That goof. Maybe he'll get his courage up on the 17th of this month which is a highly significant day for us.

I want something like what Tanya/Squirtle has!
I know THAT feeling, only I've just had it for twice as long

Oh I just love looking at all of these pics!!, I posted a pic of my engagement ring already but it was one I took myself and not a very good one. I found a much better pic though! I'm going to order my wedding band next month!

All these rings these days are so beautiful. I thought I'd show you my 33 yr old one, we didn't have much money to spend on one at the time, but it's the sentiment that matters.



I have a friend who has been married as long as I have, who last year, on holiday bought a new engagement ring, as her original one was old like mine, but I think that's wrong. You only get one chance for an engagement ring, anything after that is just a dress ring. So make sure you choose well.

I always tell him I either want a 3 stone white gold or platinum or a solitaire with a gorgeous cut stone. Our friends think he already bought the ring with part of the home loan money. I hope so!! i always make everyone shut up when there is a jewelry commercial on and shout "thats looks like what I want!!" I think it gets on his nerves though!

I do the same thing!

I can't complain, I have a 1/2 carat princess cut on my finger as my last years bday present.... BUT...

He knows what I want as an engagement ring - he's so good w/ jewelry - he's gotten be a 3 stone princess cut necklace and princess cut earrings for gifts this year already... I really shouldn't be pressing about an engagement ring!

In our 3 years together Lee has never gotten me any jewlry. Granted he has paid $1000 on my car, and put numerous extras on it. But still an engagement ring is all I really want.

Then your time should be here! Tell him no more paying on the car - its time for a RING!
post #112 of 112
Ha! The car is paid for!! Well I have to pay my dad back for the money he gave me for it. Maybe if I throw a tantrum I will get my way!
