    Brilliant idea Coliban :D (and an appreciated distraction from studying chem :p )

    we broke the "rules" (how unusual for us :rolleyes: )

    We believed in friendship before marriage....


    So I got the symbol of love (and all that) first - yay!

    The engagement ring is a plain white gold band, and so is the wedding ring - for me anyway. He required something tougher, the classic Japanese wave pattern etched in Titanium ;)

    These are mine -

    The one with the twist and center diamond is my wedding ring, the channel set matching it is one we bought later for an anniversary and the other channel set is just one I bought for myself for my birthday! (got it at cash converters actually for a bargain price!) I don't wear my actual engagement ring anymore because it was just a cheapy and gives me dermatitis!

    im sure i have better photos of it somewhere.

    my bf took my bestie in to the jewellers to see the diamond first & they settled on this design (which was NOTHING like the one i had prepped them both on well beforehand).

    i LOVE it so much. it came with a certificate & everything and is in a platinum band. i'm pretty lucky that he did his research. the first thing he said after i put it on was that it was insured so was ok to wear to the horse! lolz. i never take it off.

    I am trying my hardest to take a photo but it keeps coming out terrible even with flash on or no flash etc...

    What is the secret to getting a good pic?

    ETA - Ok still not a good pic but this one was taken a few min after the proposal...

    Details - this is a 2 1/4 carat solitare diamond ring platinum band. The other one with 5 diamons in it was a gift a few years ago from my OH as my work required me to go into some shifty places where I'd get singled out a lot :eek:

    Nothing too flash but this is mine, had the original engagement and wedding band melted together as I found it wayyyyy too thin then just got a plain band to go with it. One day I will eventually have the plain band shaped to the engagement ring :rolleyes:

    Needanswers yours is just stunning!!! **)

    NOOOOO Your problem is you need a bigger lense! THATS ONE HELL OF A ROCK! Im pretty sure if I was ever to get something that was couple of carrots...they would only be the orange things that are out of the bottom of the fridge!
    Stunning ring, HUGE congrats :))

    Cos I'm obsessed with anything/everything wedding!! Here is mine.. I don't wear my engagement ring as it's not practical and gets caught on everything so when we chose my wedding band, we wanted something different and still blingy... I love it!!!

    Can't remember if it was Zamels or Michael Hill or Angus and Coote... one of your run of the mill jewellery shops.

    We were quite prepared to get one made as I had my heart set on a $5000 + ring which was beyond our budget and this one is very similar to that... and perhaps a bit more practical anyway.

    Maybe when we win lotto then I'll get a matching ring from Kirk Kara!! :D

    My ring is gold band, which pinches into the diamonds. And three pricess cut diamonds.

    I have no idea bout the clarity or carrots... I just thought it was pretty and shinny :D

    Do you wear your engagment ring on your wedding day? what do you do with it?

    Does your wedding ring go above or below it?

    The tradition (and most people still follow it) is to have your engagement ring on the ring finger of your right hand for the ceremony. Wedding band goes on and sometime later you swap the engagement ring back to your left hand.
