A few friends have been asking about my engagement ring. The short answer is that I don’t have one yet.
The long answer is that Brian proposed with his mom’s ring because a) he wanted it to be a surprise and b) he wanted to give me the ability to design my own ring. Smart man – that’s why I’m marrying him. 😉
So, that said, here are some pictures of his mom’s ring, a sample of what my engagement ring will look like and the inspiration for my ring.
His mom’s ring is stunning. A sky blue sapphire surrounded by diamonds on a simple gold band. This is what I’m wearing now and I get compliments on it all the time. In case you’re wondering, yes, it is mine to keep!
Below is a mock-up of what my engagement ring will look like. I chose a blue sapphire as well but in a deeper color with much smaller diamonds in the halo. The band will be 14K white gold with small diamonds about halfway around.
Last but not least, here is the inspiration to the engagement ring we are designing. http://rockdiamond.com/index.php/jewelry/loose-diamond-159ct-cushion-cut-fancy-orange-brown-vs1-gia-cool-color-r3776
