 Were you happy with the engagement ring your hubby propose to you with? If not was the design, the size of the rock? What exactly was it?

I was but we picked it out together. If he picked it without me I'm not sure I would have liked it. Everything he liked was gaudy. I finally said "do you really want to pay twice as much for a ring I'd like less?"

Nope.  We decided to get married and even set a date but he didn't want to tell anyone about the engagement until I had a ring.  He dragged his feet for months (not trying to find the perfect ring, but trying to find a cheap price) and I finally bought a $100 fake one.  I still have it 13 years later.  I would love it if he got me a real one someday, but living paycheck to paycheck I don't see that happening anytime soon.

I honestly don't see the deal about liking it or not. What my son buys me for my birthday doesn't matter, but the love behind it does. I feel the same about my ring. It's beautiful, no matter it's size or value.

 I was thrilled with my ring! I think I was more shocked that he picked the right size and got one with a heart in the band under the diamonds (I know kinda hard to picture but very pretty!) It was perfectly sized to me because I was active army when he proposed and being out in the field with a giant rock on my hand wasn't exactly an option!!

We picked it out together butI wasn't happy with it because it was yellow gold and I don't like that color.  My husband pressured me into buying it but 6 years ago he bought me a new wedding and engagement bands in white gold.It was a great surprise.    So I am one happy camper now.  We kept the engagement ring with diamonds in it and will have something made for our dd.
