My hairdresser has a friend who she highly recommended we have do a custom order for us.  We met with this fellow...he said "ok, we'll probably have it done in 6 weeks".  I said, "Sooooo, do I get to try it as a wax mold or anything like that?"  He said, "No, it'll be great!"

 

I'm not gonna lie...I hadn't even seen what this ring looked like on my finger, and I was in a state of panic when we went to pick our rings up this week...praying it would be ok.  Well, I couldn't be happier with our rings...here they are!!!  One more thing crossed off the list!

Beautiful and vintage! Is that a radiant cut? It takes up A LOT of real estate too. LOL

Congratulations!

I love your ring, it looks similar to mine! My guy picked the ring himself as well. I wouldn't have thought that I'd be too confident about my boyfriend choosing the ring himself, but they tend to do pretty well

And what a nice engagement story!
Happy planning

I thought he did a wonderful job, and I can't wait to marry my prince charming. Here is a picture of my beautiful ring that he picked out all by himself! I can't quit looking at it. :)

MJKH I love your ring, it turned out so well, just like your inspiration ring! I totally know what you mean about working in health care and not wanting a big ring. My FI bought me a beautiful brilliant cut solitaire in a cathedral setting, but I can't wear it to work! So I have only wore it about 10 times since we got engaged in May, and this really upsets him :( I'm planning on getting an eternity band and wearing that to work, but honestly that thought of the bacteria from a hospital that we can carry on our rings freaks me out!

Thanks...I know, I think when we're in Mexico I will likely look for a nice silver band that will serve not only as a momento...but may also be even more functional for day to day wear.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
