We've been together for five years and change and are common law married. I'm busting at the seams excited. I know the style of ring I think I want - a cushion cut center stone with trillion (triangular) side stones. Or a radiant cut/oval cut center stone. The cushion cut is my first choice but I've heard they can be hard to find so I selected some alternatives. Every time we say we're going to go look, something comes up and we have to cancel. But this time? I'm going come hell or high water. So excited! I just had to share with someone <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

How exciting! I think it's great that you are going together to pick it out cause (IMO) the ring is soo important! Dh picked mine out for me... sort of. I told him exactly what I wanted (princess cut solitaire, at least 1 ct) and thats exactly what I got.<br><br>
I hope you get the ring of your dreams!

I am SO jealous and can't wait until the day comes that we do this! DP and I have been together five years this May and I'm still tap, tap, tapping my toes over here on the whole engagement thing . . .<br><br>
Post a pic when you can!

we did it!!<br><br>
we went a bit over teh budget we set, but I ended up with an oval center stone that's just over a carat, and trillion side stones. it's being made, so I don't have a picture of the actual ring, but I found a website that shows one that is similar.<br><a href="http://www.dbddiamonds.com/files/CPB00000/720.jpg" target="_blank">http://www.dbddiamonds.com/files/CPB00000/720.jpg</a><br><br>
we're going to select wedding bands in a few months <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I'm thinking a very thin, prong set "eternity" band, or just a very plain thing band.

texaspeach..congratulations. That is really exciting. If I had had a clue about the manner in which a large percentage of diamonds were mined when I got engaged, I would NOT have the ring I have now. I just wanted to throw out some info for you and others who may be reading your thread, to take a look at and consider before making such a purchase.<br><br>

Thank ya'll. I'm over the moon <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><br><br><br>
it's white gold. platinum seemed really heavy to me and was a bit out of our budget. The white gold will have to be redipped periodically, but I'm ok with that. I also have several other pieces of jewelry that are white gold and I've been happy with them. I'm busting at the seams here.

Ooooo...pretty!!! Congrats!<br><br>
That's pretty much my dream ring, but the center stone would be a princess cut. I didn't get that tho-dh got me a marquis.
