    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

               



              Hey everyone! Everyone's rings are so beautiful! I am a newbie here and I am FINALLY getting to start planning my DW. After 2 1/2 wonderful years of dating, my FI FINALLY popped the question in a hot air balloon over the mountains of TN. We then landed and had champagne (and old ballooning tradition!) 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.
