Well, I have something to confess. I am a control freak. This will become painfully obvious throughout the wedding planning process. (Just wait until you hear about the bridesmaid's dresses). So, in true fashion, I picked out my own ring.
Marriage talk was in the air, so I started looking at rings. My (now) fiance gave me an idea of his budget, so I went looking with those parameters. Good thing because it kept me realistic! I looked at a copule different places, but always felt like I was dealing with "used car salesmen" type people. Ugh. But then...it happened. I went to a jewelry store and had the most WONDERFUL person help me out. She was so patient with me! My ring is gorgeous and totally unique. I LOVE IT. I have a nearly perfect princess cut diamond, turned 45 degrees so it is "star set". I fell in love with a wedding band, but wanted my engagement band and wedding band to match. No problem! They set my diamond on the band. Perfect! I love how it turned out!
