    Tammy have you tried cleaning your ring with amnonia? My friend told me about it. I just soak it in amnonia mixed with a bit of dish soap for 30 mins. I have a little brush to clean the small parts. it looks amazing after, it sparkles like when I first got it!

        I've heard the ultrasonic cleaners do that "jewelry store clean" look...

          My husband picked the ring out by himself. I never talked about rings - except for when we first met 3 years before we started dating. We were at a dinner party and I talked about how I hate diamonds given the political situation. He had felt the same way and never met a woman who would say something like that (funny). Anyway, after he proposed, he went on and on for 20 minutes about how he found a no-conflict diamond from Canada and how much he thought about it and what I said about the diamonds made from lasers (that night three years before we even started dating) but they just didn't look the way this one did and blah, blah, blah. My ring is beautiful - it took him, apparently, a long time to find it. I have very small hands so I can't imagine any other ring working for me (it's low profile, etc.). He thought of everything (he's so thoughtful) and I really, really love what he picked out.

          Funny story - he stole one of my rings from the drawer to get my size. Of course, I wear it on my right hand so it's too big for my left hand (not quite sure why I haven't got it sized yet!).

            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...
            For my engagement ring, my husband set it in a simple setting, then we went back to the jeweler an I designed my ow setting.

            For wedding bands, we figured it in the wedding budget, so we picked them out together.

              Its so nice to hear everyones ring stories, before I got engaged I was obsessed with ring shopping. Now my obsession turned to the wedding. Anyway, mines an Asscher cutt from BlueNile. I basically picked it out and told him that's what I wanted (I know its not that romantic, but I figured this was something I would have for the rest of my life and I didn't want to send him off into the dark or have him stress about it).

              So if it works, attached is a picture of my ring.

                  Very pretty. You were stressed about ordering a ring online prior to seeing the quality? I've been going back and forth about ordering my wedding band online.

                    I think I already responded in the band thread, but I'm doing a round eternity ring from BlueNile. Not nervous at all about ordering from them. When we first started shopping for rings every jewerly store we went into they kept asking us....."So,um have you done any research online??" meaning yea have you seen what ridiculous prices we charge compared to BN.

                    Some wholesalers will even use BN prices as a guide to charge their customers becasue they know they can't compete. I recommend them highly!!

                      We had looked at rings together but when the time came to buy he did it with out imput from me. I probably would have picked a round soliate but he knows me so well and got me a heart shaped solitare. It's perfect!!!
