    What engagement rings have the men and husbands of DOA offered to their then to be fianceés ?

    What are the trends today ? Gold, white gold, platinum, silver ? With diamonds, rubies, sapphires ? How much did you spend on it ?

    I'm before this so important step in my life and I must choose the best one :twothumbs:

    I got a platinum ring with single princess-cut (square) diamond, which I knew my other half would want, although I didn't actually ask.


    Choose a design/style that you know she will really like and then spend whatever money you have on getting the a decent sized diamond.

    What a totally random thing to ask DOA.

    You of course have to get the ring that you think your girlfriend would love the most, not what some internet dudes got their partners?! :smashed:

    I already have some choices set in my mind that I know she'll love, I'm just curious to see what others have got, you never know...

    I proposed using my Grandmother's ring which I inherited, as I thought my missus would want a say in the wedding ring design (she's the one that has to wear it). My wife loved the ring so much (it is kickass, total old world style shit) that we had it redesigned and altered, added more diamonds and shit. Cost about $3000AU.

    My wife is non-traditional in every way.

    She's not one for the stereotypical formal engagement ring.

    We hit the pawn shops look for old antique/unique styles.

    I still dropped a heap of dough, but not nearly as much as if I'd gone the regular jewelry store route, but even better, we found an antique two piece (engagement/wedding ring) combo that simply because of it's age (1920s) looks nothing like what you see today and is almost guaranteed to be nearly one of a kind.

    She can't have loved it that much or she wouldn't have demanded that you redesign and bling out an antique heirloom!

    Put at least 2000 Euros in the pocket, take her with you and go choose the ring you both (she) like(s).
    That's what I did and we were both happy.

    Similar to dahuka, my wife was all about the vintage stuff. We had a diamond from my grandmother's wedding ring that we needed to find a setting for, but the diamond was an odd shape (it's about 0.85 carats) so we got some ideas from the vintage rings and got a designer to make the setting.

    It's white gold, very straight forward with a slight pattern marked throughout and the diamond sits on top on a setting with sort of rose thorn-esque twists. I've made it sound shit. It isn't.

    Surely you can snatch one off some gypsies, bout time they got it in reverse, rob one, they're always covered in gold.

    Mine wasn't a month's wages (inherited stone and the jeweler who did the design was a friend of a friend), but you know this isn't the sort of thing people buy on a whim, normally there's some saving involved.
