Did you help pick out your rings or were they a surprise?

How are they fitting these days?

..and of course, I want to see pictures!

Here are mine:


DH and I looked at a lot of rings together over a long time span. I told him what my top 3 favorites were, and he knows me well enough that he chose the one I liked the most

My rings are just getting re-plated right now, so I am interested in seeing how they fit when I pick them up this weekend. They were starting to get tight... I really hate not wearing them

This is my engagement ring, it was a surprise so i did not get to choose but im pretty happy with his taste!
We're picking the wedding rings together, which will be plain white gold both mine and his, the less we spend the better

Oh and about the fit its actaully bigger than it used to, i thing everything is shrinking instead of getting bigger! Lol, sorry about the size of the picture i posted this via mobile

I still drool over rings in the store when I get mine cleaned... it's fun to see how the styles change over time, but I still think every ring is timeless.

I love mine so much. I picked it out exactly and was there when DH bought it. I think I'm too much of a control freak to let him choose something like that, that I'd be wearing for the rest of my life.







It's on the snug side but I hope to get a few more weeks in before I have to go shop for an interim band.

My first ring was a white gold diamond solitaire and the wedding band was a simple row of diamonds. I dont have a picture. After nearly gettign a divorce a couple years ago, we decided that a new ring would be symbolic of our new start. We had looked at rings but ultimately he picked this one and surprised me with it the week after our second son was born. (it was actually purchased the day he was born but he was a little occupied and couldnt get it right away lol)

I told him I wanted a solitaire diamond - didn't care what cut. He picked it out, but didn't tell me. Brought me with him to the store a couple of weeks later and I ended up picking out the same one. No hints or anything, it was sweet.

Bad pic, but you get the gist.

Oh I just love all the sparklies!!! Love them. My DH had it easy. My ring was passed down from my grandmother. The wedding band is also an antique that my jeweler found for us. They are tight but fit. Since they are both old and platinum there is no way I cant resize them unless absolutely necessary. I may have to get a simple band to wear in the last month so I can make room for the swelling.



And….... fail. I'm at the beach and struggling with phone/access. Will have to post at home.
