Good question. I haven’t gotten that detailed with her. She just said, “think vintage-inspired”. Sent me a couple of photos of vintage-inspired rings.

We just bought an engagement ring after be fact. A few of our “friends” said it wasn’t a true engagement until we had a ring, but they were ignored.

Bands we just bought a few months later as well as a few of those rubber rings to keep the actual bands nice during work and such.

Our day is this Saturday. grin2

I picked out the diamond, she picked out the setting.
I went to a wholesaler in downtown Saint Louis so I could understand the diamond qualifications, and picked from over 100 loose diamonds.
I wanted something that said "I'm married" from across the room, so I got a large center stone.
She picked an appropriate setting to display said rock, with small baguettes extending from each side.
The engagement band was a row of diamonds in a yellow gold set.
I just picked up the anniversary band 2 weeks ago. Another row of matching diamonds in yellow gold for the other side of the ring to celebrate 25 years.
BUT, there are many many ways to go about this. Some have simple gold or Ti bands, some get tattoos. Some don't do anything. Really it's all about what makes you and her happy and symbolizes commitment. The ring is representative of a continuous circle of love and trust with no end. As long as you work on it, anything can represent that.
I will say she has enjoyed the set, I have too. And compliments never stop. I like that it reinforces the promise we made, but I'm kind of a sap for sad movies too.
