Post your dream engagement/wedding rings!

Postby Shameless » Fri Mar 28, 2014 8:03 pm

Even though I am no where near the point of getting engaged or married I thought it might be fun for us to all post our dream rings (or your own rings if you are engaged and/or married).

I'll start us off with mine.

I really want a square aquamarine/turqouise coloured engagement ring. Like this one:

And for my wedding ring I want a plain diamond band like this one:

Now share yours!

Bonus question - Post your dream wedding dress!

^^^ Hmm, not sure what that means, maybe because I posted huge images. I will try to reduce their size and see if that works.

Whoops, looks like I'm too late to edit my original post. Maybe we should just post links?

Nah, that's why all pics are being posted to tinypic. Pretty sure Morgan and Lulu have been contacted and I posted on the help board awhile ago and nothing. No one gives a shit about us.

I want something very antique looking with lots of detail.

This so far is my favorite.

And surprising not expensive; basically anything from Verragio is a go.

Let me just warn all you lovely ladies.

So, I got my dream engagement ring, and I wish someone had told me this before. But, the halo of diamonds around the center aren't as resilient as you would think. Four times already, the corner diamond has come out. It just happens, and when I have talked to other diamond companies, it's one of the number one reasons why they beg you to buy insurance on these cushion style rings.

I got a cushion style Vera Wang ring that included hidden sapphires, and while I wouldn't trade it for the world, I still wish I had known about the issue with corner diamonds and diamonds in cushion settings.

Here are the photos and of course, the day I went to a huge rival football game and lost a diamond in the corner. :( Thankfully, I have three insurance policies on this bad boy so I am able to get it fixed every time, but it sucks being without it.

and the missing corner diamond

Oh, and another tip for dresses, try not to have a certain dress stuck in your mind unless you know for sure your body shape will go well in that dress. I wanted nothing poofy at all, and I wanted a slim fitting, somewhat flowy dress, and MAYBE mermaid style, but holy hell, they looked like crap on me. My grandmother told me I looked like Kim Kardashian with a big butt in the dresses I tried on.

I ended up trying on a ballgown style (which I HATED) dress because I was running out of options and I hated it on the rack. I cried when I put it on because I loved it so much. It had pockets too, which I loved.

Verragio and not expensive don't go in the same sentence. If you are buying an authentic Verragio, it doesn't come with the center diamond. You have to buy them on top of the band. Verragio is my favorite diamond company and if you select a flawless, perfectly clear colored diamond and perfect clarity, the ring almost doubles and triples.

A single diamond in D color and perfect clarity at just HALF a carat starts at around $3500 to $4000 from Verragio. Most of their rings with the center stone are 12k and up.

I don't have a dream ring, I have never looked. I don't like marquise, pear, or heart shaped stones at all though. I'd absolutely love a diamond but wouldn't be at all disappointed with another stone... Love all the cushion rings posted and Bri's fav also. I don't wanna look because knowing how much they cost would give me a panic attack.

There's a company that makes celebrity ring replicas and a friend of mine has one and the sucker looks pretty real.

Wanted to share photos from my wedding since I am reliving it all with this page, haha.
I had black bridesmaids dresses and red shoes.
My shoes: Image

It was EXTREMELY rainy on my wedding day and at the last minute, I changed my mind about my hair and had her do these tighter curls so they would hold in the humidity lol
Image

I made my own veil and wanted vintage inspired theme to my whole wedding. I also added a brooch that I made with white fabric flowers and vintage lace from a family member's dress.

This is an infinity style ring. I looked "infinity style" and found this! http://mdcdiamonds.com/engagementdetail ... ountry=US#

Its kind of like that but the ring with the diamond wasjust a curved band and the other one was the iinfinity that fit perfectly into the curves of the first. That probably makes no sense im horrible at describing things lol. Thanks for looking. I looked up infinity rings and havent found it yet hopefully I can find it. So jealous your ring is beautiful

A single diamond in D color and perfect clarity at just HALF a carat starts at around $3500 to $4000 from Verragio. Most of their rings with the center stone are 12k and up.


The jeweler we went to, which is a retail partner to Verragio, said this ring was $3800 (without the center stone).

The shop we went to said they don't sell the center stones but give recommendations on where to buy them, and they had examples there to show the 4 Cs of different diamonds against the ring you like.
Most of Verragios side stones are graded F-G so he advised me to not get a colorless diamond because it might be sore to the eye. He showed me a D graded diamond next to the ring and it didn't set right with me. I would go for a F-G graded diamond even an H. And with clarity, even to a VS1; because the VS1 diamonds I saw had no inclusions to the naked eye.
The diamond we were looking at was a .75 ct F color VS1 and the jeweler ranged it would cost $1100-$1500. So the whole ring would be roughly 5k. Which falls in our ballpark.

Your wedding looked so nice.
I love the idea of black bridesmaids dresses and the whole vintage feel.

I'm torn between the red/black/white theme and rustic theme.

I wanna elope (not secretly though, just alone) at the Las Vegas sign and then get pics done at the Neon Boneyard. All I know is I want an ivory timeless vintage-y dress and maybe red shoes (because there's no place like home).
Flowers - pretty but no white roses
Cake - yummy.
Bridesmaids - 0. I don't really get along with girls. If my bf asked me to marry him and he wanted to have a best man, I have a friend who I'd ask to be my maid of honor.

I wanna throw an informal barbecue or something when we're back in town a no gifts celebration (not reception because the guests won't be at the wedding).

That's really the only things I know I want lol. Might seem like a reasonable amount but my second job is for our family business is doing weddings and I've been doing it since I was a sophomore in high school. I turn 28 on the 27th of next month haha. So I've seen it all in terms of weddings. The big wedding with a lot of people and costs a lot of money isn't for me. I feel pretty confident I can have a wedding more extravagant than what I want for under 5k.

Same. There is this place where I live that is like an old barn type thing that they use as a wedding venue. Depending on how it is decorated it can look either very country or very classic. If i do ever get married I would love to have it there.
