That 2 month thing was also so that a woman could look at it and determine how good of a provider the man would be, especially since she would not be working -- he would be the sole provider for the family. Basically....it was his resume.

We don't need that now, and it is a touch ridiculous to hold to that antiquated standard -- but some guys do (and that's fine). They look at it as "I love you so much that I was willing to make these sacrifices for you". Which is wonderful and good.

I don't look at my ring and think "geesh, my DH doesn't love me because he didn't spend 2 months salary on my ring." I'd be pretty uncomfortable walking around with a ring that expensive on my hand anyway. But that's just who I am.

I was trying to explain this to someone before - maybe in this thread or another. But you can see how my w-ring curves around my e-ring.

CassieLynn,

The pictures are showing now! Gorgeous! I like the little twist on either side of the stone.

It's a brilliant green. How lucky you are! Your FH (and his mom) did a great job.

You all have stunning rings everyone! I wish I could share all the details of mine, but unfortunately I am not engaged yet, tho the special day will come this year! My boyfriend and I chose my ring together, put down a deposit and it is now sitting in a safe until it is paid for.

Would love to share the little info I do have tho I don't remember to much about it and the info on it is with the certificate. I won't get pictures until I am officially engaged. Great thread tho(despite some the one poster). Exciting to see the pics and info about your rings :)

Cat,
I love what you said:
"I don't look at my ring and think 'geesh, my DH doesn't love me because
he didn't spend 2 months salary on my ring.' I'd be pretty
uncomfortable walking around with a ring that expensive on my hand
anyway. But that's just who I am."

I'm with you there. I look at my ring and think how much love and time my FH put into picking out just the right ring for me. And if he HAD spent two months salaray, I would have questioned his sanity. We were saving for a house at that point, and pinching pennies so tightly we were getting nickels in change!

I totally love my man - more than any ring can express! And I know he feels the same way.

I hope every bride to be is as happy.
-Winnie

I agree about the two month thing. My engagement ring is a bit more than 3 karats total BUT it was given to my FH by his grandmom to give to me (it was her 25 wedding anniversary ring). The ring is so special and I wear it with pride. However, if he had bought the ring himself and came home with a 3 karat one I would have kicked his tookus. 'Um honey how are we going to pay the mortgage this month? And also I would kind of like to be able to afford to eat".

I think the whole "2 months salary" idea is pretty shallow and really outdated. How much the ring costs doesn't equal how much he loves me.

So here's my ring. The center stone is an heirloom; it was left to him by his late grandmother. The sides/side stones he designed with the jeweler himself. I LOVE IT! It was exactly what I wanted, round center stone, side stones, and pretty decorations. The best part is that I never told him what I wanted, he just knew :)

I loveeeee looking at everyone's rings! :) All of them are so beautiful.

December of 2008, my boyfriend & I were just walking around the
mall to kill time. We stopped at a jewerly store and out of the blue he
asked me to pick out a ring. I was shocked but excited because I knew
he finally wanted to settle down. I explained to the lady that I wanted
a 3-stone princess cut diamond with diamonds around the band. She
picked up the most gorgeous ring I have ever seen. I looked at Patrick
and told him that this was the one. I did see the price tag and thought
it was too expensive. After insurance & everything, he paid 3,700
for my ring.

Not long after that, he proposed to me on January 11th, 2009. I'm in
love with my ring & we have already picked out my wedding band. My
engagement ring is 2ct and my wedding band is 1ct.

Oooh ladies, all of your rings are beautiful. My fiance picked mine out and I love love LOVE it! He talked to my parents beforehand and actually included my family in on the engagement...it was really sweet.

Ugh, I can't figure out how to upload my picture :o(
