    We went out to dinner last night, and the last thing I expected was him to pop the question! Wow, I'm still stunned!

    now wife of 45 years, and she put the engagement ring on but asked me if I would also wear a commitment ring to show other that I, like her, was no longer on the market. I told her if she bought it I would indeed wear one. I was measured at a Kay Jewelers and then sent to the...

    Two

    The first was pink diamonds set in white gold. After he left to travel the world I realised there was no point in me having a ring on my finger if he wasn't to come back. I lost the ring and he sent me a replacement as a token of our friendship. The second was white...

    Not Yet.

    My mom gave me her engagement ring when her marriage went sour.  That is about it. I noticed some stories in this group that shocked me, women saying, "It's not what I wanted"  Then, I thought, if I EVER get an engagement ring, I would be...
