I was just wondering if anyone received anything other than a diamond engagement ring? I was also wondering if anyone has ever received a diamond ring and took it back before the wedding to just get a band instead. If you know of anyone doing this, please let me know!! Thanks.
My ring is a celtic knot with inlaid black diamond and two smaller diamonds. So it isn't quite the traditional but it works for me very well. Everyone says that he definitely knows me since he got the celtic knot instead of just the band with a diamond... they are right! :D
My fiancee proposed last april, and instead of getting me a diamond solitaire, he got a channel set band with seven diamond chips in it. I think it is beatiful and i love it; it totally suits my style and he knew i would never wear a solitaire. I do get different reactions when i show it to people though. Sometimes it's almost as if they think it's not big enough or that diamond solitaires are the only kind of engagement ring. personally, I wouldn't trade my ring for the world and i don't think it really matters what anyone else thinks.
