So we all know about finding THE dress, but how about THE ring?!?

Recommended Posts

Okay ladies, I'm driving myself NUTS over this, and I need to see if I've actually lost my marbles here...

 

So, long story short, my original e-ring is pink topaz, it faded (due to store cleanings), got replaced by the store, but was told it will fade again naturally. (Some of you may remember this drama lol) ANYWAY, I know that I have to find a "replacement" e-ring, so I've been looking around for about 6 months or so. I like pink, hence the pink topaz in my current ring, but I keep hearing how even pink sapphire MIGHT fade if it's had a certain treatment done on it or this or that, and how ultrasonic cleaners will suck out all the colour (not sure how vibrations do that if I'm cleaning it in just water, but w/e) But my big problem was, I'm not a fan of diamond rings (I'm weird, it's okay, you can say it) To me, they're just not "original". That was until I found the ring of my DREAMS!!! I can't find any pictures of it, but it's got a bunch of smaller diamonds clustered together so they look like one big center stone (but WAY more sparkle, it's gorgeous!) and there are baguettes along the center of the band and then pave on the outside of the baguettes. This ring is just gorgeous, and looks MUCH different than anything I've ever seen (I can't even describe it properly, because I've never seen anything else like it in my life).

 

So I absolutely fell in love with this ring, and I just can't take my mind off of it. It is about $1000 more than we wanted to pay for a new ring (considering this is ring #2, and we still have to buy a wedding band) but I just can't stop thinking about it!!! Is there such a thing as THE ring?

Of course there is! And my answer is simple; you are going to wear this ring for EVERY DAY for the rest of your life so in the scheme of things, $1000 really is not much. Wouldnt you rather get your dream ring now than 'settle' for a pretty one?? If it were me, I wouldn't want to settle and I would just make it work now b/c I know if I did settle, one day down the road I will feel the need to 'upgrade' and in turn spend alot more money AGAIN to get THE ring..

Ditto Nadine!

I previously read a post where someone said that the only things you have left after the wedding is DH, the ring(s) & your pictures & you should not skimp on either!! (God, I wish I thought of this before my wedding!)

Anyway, I say go for it if you can manage it in the budget at all!!

I agree. Go for it! We spent a little extra to be "original" as well, and went with a yellow diamond ring. I wouldn't change a thing about it. I have a diamond set and a yellow diamond set of earrings that sound like what you are describing and they are so nice! So I think you should splurge. I like the way Amanda put it "....the only things you have left after the wedding is DH, the ring(s) & your pictures & you should not skimp on either!!..."

I never really thought about it like that. I planned on spending a pretty penny on pictures and also buying myself a Digital SLR so I could get some great photos myself, so I had thought about how important pictures were, but I just never really thought about the ring being so important. Then again, it will probably be an heirloom just like my grandmother's engagement ring that she gave me when I was younger.... And Amanda, I love how you put it, you're totally right!!


Thanks ladies! I knew you'd put it all in perspective for me! smile03.gif

I also think you should get the ring if you have your heart set on it you should get it!! I agree you wear your ring everyday so $1000 is not a lot in the long run.

    • 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
