Engagement Rings: Expectation vs. Reality!

Did your vision for your engagement ring match up with what you actually got? FH and I got engaged without a ring, so I showed him a photo of what I wanted. He ended up getting a totally different style I wasn't expecting, but I absolutely love it! What I envisioned What FH got me!

    Wow, that's beautiful! I really like those Celtic knots on the side! I'm glad your FH took the hints Smiley smile

    My friend leaked info that I liked pear or oval with side stones, and I initially wanted garnet sidestones due to an old superstition. But I wanted something timeless and dainty. He hit the nail on the head and when he chose the design he noticed the name of the setting is the feminine version of his last name, so definitely a sign this one was meant to be. It sparles like crazy but this pic was taken in the dark!

    The correlation between your ring setting and FH's name is awesome! Your ring is beautiful!

    I had picked out my ring online 2 years prior. My FH ended up getting me the exact one I wanted. It's a nice dainty wedding set. It's so perfect. I worked in jewelry at the time so I felt like I had seen and tried on everything. I couldn't be more happy with mine.

    It's amazing how we can have a clear vision but end up with something totally different!

    I thought I wanted a heart shaped stone halo. I was completely in love with one for months! Then FH brought up the idea of going custom so my heart dream ring ended up a flower halo dream ring! Both rings had that pale blush colored stone too and rose gold.

    I had always wanted a yellow gold round solitaire with a basic diamond wedding band. My husband picked out a rose gold round solitaire and a wrap . I absolutely love it. I had never even considered rose gold. He thought that it perfect for me and he was right.

    When we talked about getting married. He brought up rings, I told I don’t want an engagement ring. I just wanted a really nice wedding band. But FH said no can do!! He picked out my engagement ring ALL by himself!! I refused to give any input on what kind of ring I wanted. I’ve been married before and divorced (engagement ring don’t make a marriage). I wanted a marriage not a ring. Bonus I also get the wedding ring I wanted from the start!!

    This is what he got me. I thought he was going to get my mom’s ring from her.

    Both pictures are gorgeous. In my case, I showed him a couple of pictures of the rings I might like before we got engaged. My husband got me my favorite one.

    I envisioned a heart shaped halo morganite ring. But FH said he looked everywhere but could not find one with a halo. The ones he saw in person without the halo looked "weird to him and did not really look like a heart." He did not want to order anything online. When choosing the ring he said he made sure it was morganite and that it had some hearts on it lol. I love my ring 😍.

    We chose mine together 7 years ago and I love it. He went on to give me a necklace, bracelet, and earrings with a 3 stone theme.
    We came together after the loss of spouses so the meaning of 3 stone's for past, present, future is special to us.

    I thought i wanted a round or oval cut but ended up with an emerald cut morganite. He knew i wanted rose gold and morganite.

    Initially I had always wanted a very simple thin banded round halo ring. But I was so happy to end up with this beauty! It fits my small size 4 finger perfectly. I’ve also been with my FH since I was 18, so it’s nice to know the 3 stones stand for: past, present, & future. It’s so us!
