Ring Bling Link-up


I just had to link up with the lovely CMae today to showcase the symbol of our love!
Before I knew how awesome blogging was, I did join The Knot.
You can find our entire engagement/how we met saga 
As for the ring?
He did very well!!
He asked my opinion a long time he popped the question,
and I told him I liked simple, but I really loved the small diamonds on the side.
He had my ring custom made.
He looked at several diamonds, but he said that the one he actually chose,
sparkled so much more than the others.
He literally held the diamond in his hand before it became part of my ring!
I just find that so sweet and special that he did it all by himself.
He said when he held this one, he just knew.
He did it all behind my back and it was a total surprise.
He also planned on giving it to me later, but when he picked it up, he just couldn't wait!
Some of the first few pics I took:
It's a 1.34 carat, but I don't know all the other details.
It's breathtaking.
I still stare at it all the time!!
We then had our bands made.
I chose to have an eternity band {diamonds all around}
All of our rings are white gold.
His says, 7-10-10 on the inside.
{so he doesn't forget, j/k!!}
He made sure to have the rings made extra sturdy, since I'm not as dainty as I'd like to think I am.
I'm always doing a lot.
My rings are with me 24/7.
The only time I take them off are when we are doing something crazy like
exploring Caribbean islands or swimming.
In which case, I lock them up in a safe.
What's your ring bling story??
