it is not inertia alone that is responsible for human relationships repeating themselves, monotonous and un-renewed, it is shyness before all else.

When P and I realized we were getting serious, he gave me his purity ring to wear- just a silver ring on a brown string. I wore it every day until he proposed. Now he wears the ring as his man-gagement ring. We've even talked about, if we have a son, giving him the ring. Keeping it in the family, so to speak. ^_^

i really love the idea, i think my boyfriend would love a ring, the first thing i thought was a plain silver or platinum or titanium ring, and the same for me.
he would look awesome-ly cute Smiley
i  think his hands are very pretty  Roll Eyes
and he would totally wear it


oh and :
A comment on titanium rings - from my mother the jeweler. They can't be cut off in the event of an accident/trip to the ER. Nor can they be resized. The rings are beautiful!


interesting about the accident thing, it is definitely something to consider, specially if your job is liable to accidents...

maybe i'll stick with the plain silver idea...
or...
i'm thinking surgical steel (maybe because i study medicine and i'm taking "surgery" right now? Cheesy)
and i read this: "The chromium gives the metal its scratch-resistance and corrosion resistance "
 Is a plus comparing to the silver ones, that usually get scratches...

what does the jeweler mommy thinks?? Smiley

My current engagement ring came from a quarter machine at Walmart.

When funds allow (read: after college), I get to pick out my own ring =D  Which works out well for him in the end, because the ones I like the best are WAY cheaper than anything a guy worrying about possible rejection would dare to get on one knee with.  (*He* wasn't worried about rejection, I'm just sayin' he's getting to miss out on pressure to pick out something expensive.)  And he gets one too, at the same time.  That part was his idea, but I love it.  He likes jewelry, he's very sentimental and romantic... it just suits.  In our relationship, it wouldn't make any kind of sense for him not to have an engagement ring if I had one.

For now, he wears my high school class ring.

Ooh, and we got engaged at the Poe Museum because we'd already picked that out as the place we want to get married (yeah, I know we were doing it backwards, lol), so my REAL REAL engagement "thing" is a pewter keychain he bought me in the gift shop after proposing that's shaped like a heart with "We loved with a love that was more than love" engraved on one side.  It looks like this:  (yay for the website having a pic, btw)

I am also a diamond hater... I do loves sparklies I just don't like the whole backstory to diamonds. My engagement ring has lab created champagne diamonds though. I like labs and science so it's cool Smiley I don't think anyone died in the creation of my ring so that's good.

I gave my boy one of my many rings many moons ago. I wear a lot of rings on both my hands and one night I took on of my silver bands off and he still keeps it on his key ring. My fingers are way to small for it to fit him but I like knowing that a piece of me is with him always. *aww gush*

Also, I'd like to note that as crafty people we are sensitive and I think we like the idea of sentiment more than most people. Our sentiment sometimes takes form in objects... like rings Smiley

my boy wears one. I got it from etsy just before we got engaged but as I was surprised somewhat it hadn't arrived!! He won't wear it after the wedding because he broke his knuckle on his right hand so it doesn't fit Sad Ah well. Here's a photo -

It's nicer in real life! And here's mine - hardly the traditional engagement ring but i ADORE it!

Is that ring wooden?  It's lovely.  My husband liked the idea of a wooden ring but we couldn't find one, and I'd be worried about how long it would last if it got wet etc.  His wedding ring is titanium and it was difficult enough to get him to agree to wear that, so no he didn't have an engagement ring.

SesSpringett, I love your butterfly ring, it's really unusual and pretty Smiley

I love that ring! It's really similar to the one I wanted to get my fiance, but he liked it better as an actual wedding ring so I think that something different is in call forthe engagement part.
