Engagement ring

How *gorgeous* is this ring? Swooning.

I'd love to ask you, my darlings: What's your relationship status? Are you married, engaged, dating, single, it's complicated? Just curious. :) I'd love to hear...

Callie said...

So happy after (just shy of) 7 years of dating my best friend. We met his senior and my junior year of college and have been together since--even through several years of long distance due to grad school. He just took me ring shopping over the holidays and now I'm pretty much on the edge of my seat hoping to formalize what we already feel inside. (our married friends joke and say we're more married than they are) Oh yes, and I'm 28 and have babies on the brain. It would be nice to get those formalities (ring wedding waiting an appropriate amount of time so it doesn't look shotgunny) out of the way first.

Emily Wilson said...

annie said...

What a gorgeous ring! For some reason I feel like it should be in a fairy tale.

I'm currently engaged (woohoo!) and planning a wedding in November. My fiance and I were dating for almost seven years before he proposed, three of those years being long distance. We're just glad to be in the same city now!

Engaged! Recently! Super Happy!

Anonymous said...

I have been oh so happily stuck with my darling husband since 1986. Gosh those years have flown by too. I just wanted to share my thoughts with you all - in those long years the fashion on wedding rings has changed a few times! I had a custom made band of gold with no stone but an interesting shape and over these years I've been really glad that I have something that is standing the test of time. I would recommend to new brides that they have a custom ring set of both white and yellow gold as well as a stone for their wedding day that could be switched out depending on fashion and mood. And for me - I need a ring with a stone, and that one is so lovely, I WANT it!

Annalee said...

just celebrated 2 years of marriage & welcomed a baby girl. that ring is truly breathtaking!

Such a beautiful stone and setting!
Single for almost 1 year now after a 6 year relationship. Definitely loving the independence but struggling with the loneliness. I am a teacher and am surrounded by kids every day. As much as I love them all, I would love nothing more than to have my own, but the dad part is a tough one.
I love your blog sooo much, Joanne--definitely at the top of my daily reads!
p.s. are you watching the bachelor this season? Don't know quite what to think about this guy. He seems so boyishly sincere.

Anne said...

Friends for 4 years, dating for 4 months. I feel like he's a whole new person but comfortable like he's my oldest friend- it's a thrilling combo!

Erin said...

This ring is gorgeous! As for status, I would classify myself into the "technically single, but it's complicated" category...

laura said...

it's complicated! (love the ring, btw) been with my boyf for seven years and still have no idea when he'll be ready to pop the question-so yeah-you should do matchmaking!!! :D

jacqueline said...

I love all the unique wedding bands and engagement rings you post on your blog! For more than one reason, I'm pretty fervently against the standard diamond ring. I especially love that you posted your own vintage/passed-down ring. They have so much more meaning!

I'm dating, but it's long distance since he's in medical school and I'm still working on getting to nursing school. However, I've got a cute puppy-dog to keep me company :)

The first time I met my boyfriend I told him I could't trust someone with two first names (his last name is George). Two and a half years later we are still dating and living together as of June.

Engaged! My boyfriend, now fiancé, asked me to marry him while we were on vacation in England this past September. It was all very romantic, I couldn't help but giggle a little.

Ooo I love this ring :D I'm in a long distance relationship, just celebrated out 2 years anniversary January 11th, known each other for 4 years this May. Been planning to get married...hopefully soonish. Living so far away wears me out.

And this ring is SO gorgeous, but I'll always be happy with the one he gave me. :)

Kate said...

single and definitely not opposed to some matchmaking!

Laura said...

beautiful! happily dating the guy that I will one day (hopefully) marry. But right now, we're blissfully happy with our relationship. Downside to this great relationship: the "When...?" question from friends and family seems NEVER ENDING!

argh. great ring!

Jessica said...

I am engaged! As of December 19th, when my boyfriend surprise-proposed to me in front of my family at our annual Hanukkah party, in the middle of pictures. My uncle got it all on film; it was perfect, because Chris knows how important my family is to me and how I was so glad they were all there. -swoon-

We hope to get married summer 2012 up here where we live, which is in Alaska! We want to have plenty of time for people to plan their trip up.
