Wedding Wednesday: My Engagement Ring

I am running out of topics but I still want to partake in Wedding Wednesday!  There's actually plenty I can share, but I don't want to overshare before the big day.
144 days to go!
Now, onto today's topic!
My engagement ring is a 4-prong solitaire diamond 14K gold ring.
A lot of people ask if I picked it out.  No, I did not.  We never went ring shopping together.  A while back, Saro showed me a few different pictures and asked which I liked best.  I don't remember if I "picked out" one he showed me but I did tell him I do like simple and classic.
Saro went into NYC without me (big deal) not once but TWICE, for the ring.  First to pick out the diamond and next, to pick it up.  One of our good friends was at our house recently and he was telling us how nervous he was going into NYC with a lot of cash on him.  LOL I could just picture it.  Both of his NYC trips, I had no idea about.  I thought he was at work!  Little did I know he had taken two half days.  What a guy...
It was a big deal for him to take the train without me into NYC.  He hates public transportation and doesn't have the best sense of city direction.  It's funny because he grew up in Fort Lee, NJ which basically sits right next to the George Washington Bridge entrance.  So, NYC isn't forgein to him but it's just not his thing.  At all.
It's not the best picture but it's hard to capture it on camera!
I love it!  I'm always so nervous I'm going to lose it.  Please tell me I'm not the only one!  A few people I've said that to are like HAHAHA OMG.  It fits well but gets a little loose when I'm cold. 
I take it off before bed (or sometimes when I get home if I'm cooking messy) and it goes in the box he gave it to me in.  I then check it again right before the light goes off.  Paranoid much?
***What kind of ring do you have or what do you think you would like to wear f-o-r-e-v-e-r?***


  1. LOVE your ring. I love the classic look, it's similar to the ring my husband gave me. SO special!

  2. I love it! I like the idea of a classic look as well. Mine came as a set, but I do like the option of getting any wedding band you want. I take mine off if I am showering (the soap makes me nervous) or if I will be washing my hands a lot in the kitchen (like cooking chicken). I sleep in mine though and have never had a problem with it.

  3. Beautiful! I always take my rings off before I shower. I had a scare with a diamond earring earlier this summer and I thought it went down the shower drain, so I learned my lesson about showering with jewelry. Luckily I found the earring a couple months later. haha

    There's nothing wrong with being paranoid about such a special piece of jewelry! If nothing else the paranoia might help you keep from actually misplacing it! :)

  4. What a beautiful ring! I have an heirloom and absolutely LOVE it! I feel you, though: I am ALWAYS checking it to make sure it's still on! I'm terrified of losing it!!

  5. Beautiful and amazing ring. Very attractive photo.
