*cough* Wow, that's pretty! I like how it splits into two. :D What made you go with an orange stone?

The pics really don't do it justice. The metalwork is really pretty.

Actually, it's not orange. I'm not sure why the camera caught it that way. It's actually a garnet. I'm amazed that it looks that way.

Yeah, I had a black opal one waaay back when she first proposed, and it was gorgeous, but I was scared to death that I was going to destroy it. I was working in a kitchen back then and was just terrified that I'd wreck it.

This time around, I wanted something a little harder to kill. It wound up being a choice between garnet, ruby, or blue topaz. Not much of a diamond girl, so... In the end, the price was right and so was the setting. I love it.

Awww, very pretty! It's heart-shaped? ... Awwwww! :D
Lois: Lois :: Mischeviouskalalanekent on September 10th, 2010 06:55 pm (UTC)
Actually it's a triangle -shape. Or, as Kattz put it, shield-shaped. Which I didn't do on purpose. *LOL*

You didn't know? Really? O_O

Well, we got engaged about eight years ago, but made the decision to be serious about it last year and we're moving forward to getting married up in Toronto September of next year. Yes, darling Kat, I'll be just a province away. For a week or so, anyway.

THANK YOU! *snugs you tight*

Now THAT is one cool ring! Hubby and I made a unique one for my engagement ring out of a gorgeous black opal stone. I would still be wearing it if I hadn't lost it after cleaning (I was always concerned about the chemicals etching the stone). Love the setting.
Lois: Lois :: Huh?kalalanekent on September 11th, 2010 06:03 pm (UTC)
*jaw drops* Seriously? The first ring I had was a black opal! I was working in a hospital kitchen at the time and was SCARED TO DEATH that I'd ruin it with all the water and cleaning products. I LOVED that ring, but it just didn't work.

XD Me, too. But I just realized why, thanks to xenokattz. Looks like a shield-shape. XD

Ooooh, purdy! :P I'm a diamond girl myself but looking at that makes me think other stones aren't' that bad :P
Lois: Lois :: What's In A Namekalalanekent on September 11th, 2010 06:05 pm (UTC)
I've never been a big fan of diamonds, mostly because of the insane cost and the fact that they're so clear. I'd rather get a quartz than a diamond, really. But to each his own. Nothing wrong with a ring like that if it's your taste and there is tradition behind it and all.

And awwww! That means a lot! I really love it.

*happy sigh* I absolutely adore everything to do with weddings. I'm total sap for that sort of thing.
Lois: Labyrinth :: Sarah/Ari Profilekalalanekent on September 11th, 2010 06:13 pm (UTC)
I never was a wedding kind of girl, didn't have much fun with it, but I find myself enjoying it more now that I'm older and going to have one myself. Although I don't know how fancy I'm going to be able to go with it. Although I know what dress I'll have and am starting to take steps in that direction. So much to do!
