    Default ~Unique Engagement Rings~

    Df has started to look at engagement rings...
    we have been engaged nearly two years but couldn't afford a ring...
    he brought home a pandora brochure... not your typical engagement rings in it... he says he is not going to buy it from here... cause i think he already has something in mind. he knows me very well.
    there is only one ring in the whole brochure i like but... no diamond its not huge... its little and silver and has a pearl...
    this got me thinking, do any of you ladies have a unique engagement or wedding ring?
    would be nice if a photo was shared

    thanks for reading.

I have a ring that was my grandmothers that has had to have the pearl replaced too many times because of this
    is that because of the set? i own lots of pearls and have had pearl rings made to my style and nothing has ever happened like this. i have a pearl in the middle and amethyst on each side (my birth stones). i wear it daily

    That is GORGEOUS!!!!

    This is my besties engagement ring. It was her grandmothers ring. She is such a vintage girl so i think this ring suits her perfectly. Funnily enough, its almost exactly what she had originally designed for herself anywayMiss' Ring.jpg

    Sarelou- that's beautiful!

    I get my pearl cleaned with a special laser cleaner in Sydney, and polish the white gold with one of those special cloths. Low maintenance really. My only peeve is I sometimes knock the pearl.
    Hubby did well xo

    I had my rings made by an etsy seller. He charged materials plus 10%. I have a pink sapphire centre stone with canadian diamonds (this was important to me). They are hand made so ever so slightly imperfect, which makes them more perfect to me!

    Oh and after doing a lot of research in metals I decides to get palladium.
