I know we have a whole thread about pictures of our rings...but I was curious how "non-traditional" my fiance and I are...

how many of you helped to pick out your ring?
Were you completely surprised about your ring?

I would love to hear stories about picking out the ring...

I will start with my story. My FI told me he thought he would pick out a solitaire for me (which I so did not want) and my grandmother had a family heirloom ring that I really liked. However he felt that the ring he gives me should be from him so we started looking around in early January getting ideas of prices and styles, I really liked antique looking rings and wanted a ring that I could have a wedding band with as well. One day in early Feb 06 we went to Jared and found the perfect set up, a ring with the band with it and the center stone was not their so we chose the center stone and its placement. We compromised on his like of princess cut and my like of round/brillant cut and came up with the pefect ring for us.

    I told him that I liked Emerald cut. That was all. The ring is amazing and totally me, I was very surprised. I knew he would do good, but this good, I did not have a clue. He even had it designed because he did not think any of the rings he would find "were me".

      We went together and picked out a ring, actually I was first looking at a Princess cut but his aunt got engaged and was given one that almost looked like the one we orginally picked out, so it was back to the drawing board, I have to be unique... We eventually found one that is perfect, only down fall is that no wedding band in the stores will match is so we have to do a custom wedding band.

            I guess I had made comments that I like either princess or round, and he just knows that I would like the more simple, but classy style. I am a pretty casual girl (as I sit here in my Old Navy warm-up pants and a tshirt!), so something too fancy would just look silly on me.

            I thought he'd have a harder time picking it out though, since he can be rather indecisive and doesn't buy me things like clothes very often, since he said it's hard to know what I will like (clearly, I am high maintenance ... NOT!). Anyway - he said that when he saw this ring, he knew I'd love it ... and I do! It's a princess cut center stone, with 2 smaller princess cuts on the side - and a simple platinum band - not too thin. He went with this sister to pick it out, since she knew the jeweler, but he did it on his own!

              No, I never posted a pic, I am newer to this site and never saw that thread. I also don't have one. I will try to take one at home this weekend, its hard though, pics of rings never look good. I will see what I can do though and I will post it.

              I just looked at the post of your ring, I love it. Ours are not that different, I also have round diamonds on the sides, I have 3 on each side and the emerald in the middle, but mine are set in the band, and its a think wide band. I am not making it sound nice, I will try to take a pic for you.

                I think I understand what your saying though.. I think I seen a ring online like that.. Not too many brides have Emerald cut diamonds, so I find it cool when I find someone who does. :-)

                  I have been looking on line, but I can't find anything like it. He designed it himself, but he had help by looking at other ones, so there has to be something like it online. lol I will keep looking, if not, I will take a pic.

                  That is part of what I loved about Emerald Cut, the fact that not many people have it. I like things to be different. And, its beautiful of course.
