When we decided to we wanted to get married we began looking into engagement rings and what would best suit my personality and style. There’s so much you have to consider in a ring such as the stone, style, cut or maybe even the price. Ohsoperfectproposal.com offers so many amazing engagement ring inspirations. There are many different articles that can help you make all of these important decisions. I knew I wanted something with a colored gemstone or vintage. We knew we wanted something unique but also simple.
We decided that an emerald stone would be the best choice for me due to a couple of reasons. One, I’m going to be Mrs. Green and also the meaning behind it is so beautiful and very suiting for Matthew and I. The emerald stands for unconditional love, compassion, and growth.
The story of the stone on my engagement ring is very special. When I mentioned to my Grandmother that we were looking for an emerald ring and she told me about an emerald ring that was going to be passed down to me in the future! The emerald stone was given to my Grandma from my Grandpa. He bought the emerald stone when he was in Colombia! The reason why the stone color is a light green is because it is a real and true emerald stone instead of a synthetic green saturated stone. They had the stone set into a ring which is what they gave to Matthew and I to do what we wanted with it. I remember seeing the look on Matthew’s face when he saw the ring. We knew it was right for us.
We went together to pick out the ring and design in Las Vegas the day before I flew to Paris in March. I get a lot of questions asking if that just ruins the overall surprise of the proposal. To be honest, it may have left out the “surprise” factor but it was such an amazing experience to share together and a extra special step. Matthew and I decided awhile ago that we want big moments in our lives to be shared together.
We went into the jeweler with the ring and told them what we were looking for and the first option that was presented to us was the one! The stone is now set on a rose gold band with diamonds. If you know me, you know I’m a sucker for rose gold so this just takes my breath away. We also went ahead and got the wedding ring to go with the engagement ring. The wedding band is a simple row of diamonds in a rose gold set. The style is simple yet adds a little bit of contrast to the engagement ring. I can’t wait to wear it as a complete set!
Walking out of the jewelry store was a wild emotion of excitement and shock that we actually made a huge step to beginning our lives together.
