cornflake dreams.: the ring.

3.24.2011

the ring.

i have had quite a few requests to share a close-up photo of my engagement ring. i can't stop starring at it so i guess it would be selfish to keep it all to myself :) 
the band is a little pinker in person, just the right amount of a rose-gold hue.
it's exactly what i wanted and it is incredibly sparkly in person. the ring was custom made by a jeweler in my family... a hybrid of a couple of rings that h and i saw together. i must say i am pretty smitten with it :) i always thought that i would want a diamond wedding band but i want the engagement ring to stand out on it's own, so i am going to get a simple rose gold band instead. 

what does your dream ring look like? 
xoxo,

  1. This is absolutely beautiful! I love the rose gold band. I too want a pave band, and I really like the idea of rose gold. It gives it a little more personality. Wow! I wouldn't be able to stop staring either!

  9. That is one very gorgeous ring! Oh, my dream ring would be one in white gold (or platinum), a thin band and a little pertruding diamond on it. I do know many ladies out there wanting a huge rock, but a little rock would be my pick. My finger is rather tiny too. ;) And for the wedding band, a simple and thin white gold band! :D

    Congratulations again, sweetie! xx

    My dream looks exactly like yours! ;) Not seriously, I would prefer a ring like that, ultra thin pave set band, and a round, brilliant or cushion cut with pave diamonds outlining it!

    I've got my fingers crossed, so maybe in the next year! ;)
