UPDATE: We have created an “other gemstone” category, so anyone with a gemstone ring that is not included in any of the other categories can submit their ring now!
We know the hive loves engagement rings. Just take a look at the Gallery or our Rings boards, and you will see all kinds of e-rings, discussions on what kind of ring to buy, pros and cons of different styles and stones, etc. So we thought it would be fun to create a series of ongoing “Ring Porn” posts with the hive in mind!
So we’re launching a set of ring surveys, starting with 15 different styles of engagement rings (you can find them at the bottom of this post, and we’ll also post them on the Boards as a stickied post). All you do is fill out the survey corresponding to your ring style (round diamond, Moissanite, sapphire, etc.), Mrs. Mouse will email you to ask for a photo of your ring, and then once at least 10 people with that style of ring have filled out the survey, it will become a post here on the blog!
The posts will continuously be updated to reflect new ring submissions, and eventually we hope they will be an amazing repository of REAL engagement rings to inspire bees for years to come.
To kick off this series, Mrs. Mouse asked the bee bloggers and hostesses to submit their own rings to get an idea for what the ring posts will look like! Without further ado…
Mrs. Funnel Cake’s “Klein und Fein” (small and fine) five-stone solitaire diamond with two stones flanking each side.
Why did you or your FI choose this ring? I wanted a multi-stone ring with a traditional profile higher than the wedding band like my mother’s, and Mr. FC thought the engagement ring (which he didn’t think we needed) should cost less than the more important wedding ring. We decided to compromise, which was good because I anyway did not like how far all the 0.5-1.5 carat solitaires I tried stuck out on my finger. In the end, I preferred a ring with a very minimal profile for everyday wear.
