      I didn't have a say in my ring choice, but he did have a good idea of what I wanted. I was at a doctor's office where the nurse had the most beautiful ring I had ever seen! She said it was an antique ring. When I got home I told my boyfriend at the time about this amazing ring that I had seen. He actually went to that doctor's office and found the nurse that had just gotten engaged and looked at the style of ring! He found out that it was a filigree style. So when he went to get the ring, he got a vintage ring with filigree and added a diamond. I absolutely love it and I like that he picked it out. It was a big risk though! He's really lucky I like it because I am extremely picky when it comes to jewelry. Maybe you should take him to stores, show him what you like and let him pick it out!

        I picked out my ring too - I'm pretty picky so I knew I wanted to be part of it and my fiance was more than willing to let me do the work.  We went to the jewelry store, he sat in a chair with his iPhone while I shopped.  I tried on a lot of different style trying to keep an open mind but ultimately ended up with what I always thought I would get - a princess cut solitaire in a modern classic band.  I LOVE my ring.  I don't wear a lot of jewelry so I really didn't know much beyond that.  I assumed around a carat but ended up with 1.25 which seems to fit perfectly in the setting.  We also got a high quality stone.  When I heard the price I kept telling my fiance that he can get a lesser diamond - I was OK with that, but he just went with it. Every once in awhile he asks "did I get you a big enough ring?"


        As much as I love my ring, I'm realizing its a little struggle to get a band to match. I don't want a lot of bling on the band but I don't want a plain one either.  Most of the bands with a few diamonds are round and of course I don't want that to clash with the square e-ring.  I need to look some more this weekend but will probably end up going with the one to match the e-ring which is more than I wanted to spend, but I'd hate to settle on something that doesn't look right that I will be wearing every day for the rest of my life.

            That's what my decision came down too. I knew it needed to be a ring that I loved and of course I do love it.
