I went to Mulloys jewelers today in Carlsbad California.
It was a nice experience. We ordered my ring (i have a size 3.5 finger)
i took some photos of the ring and a band. I''m trying to decide if i want a
band or not...
what do you girls think?
with band or no band?

A Tacori Rep. was also there putting out the new jewelry line (necklaces, earrings, etc.)
It was a lot of fun to meet her and to see all these peices that she had.

Wow, do you have tiny fingers--I''m so jealous.

IMHO the band looks super. But ....... only get it if you ABSOLUTELY love it.

*swoon* I love that ring! Do you have a stone yet? Sorry if I missed it. I think it looks great with a band. How is Mulloy''s? High pressure? Or a nice place to browse?

I love that setting- it''s so modern yet classic. I would totally get the wedding band too- I love small gaps between rings.

What an amazing setting! So beautiful!

I would definitely get the band too. I think they look great together!

How long until you get it?!

I think it looks perfect with that band! FOr me, I wouldn''t feel ''complete'' without a w-band.....

I am not trying to be intrusive but I know in another thread you mentioned your husband passed away....are you getting married again (duh I assume so)
Congratulations!

ok.. ooh so many things to talk about...
so much fun..
i was thinking of doing the NO BAND thing.. but after seeing them together a couple of times
FI was like... YOUR GETTING THE BAND. and it''ll be a tacori band too. (in his military SGT. voice)
so i''m like oK


My 1st husband did pass away. this is the 2nd time around for me...
my FI and i first started dating last year and in the beginning, he knew he wanted to marry me.
but i didn''t want to get married. I felt this way:
i''ve been down that road before and I LOVED IT. it was a beautiful time of my life and i wouldn''t trade
it for the world. so why get married again? right... i had an awesome marriage to my 1st hubby (ryan) although
it was short (8months) but i just didn''t want to tarnish that memory.

fast forward to present day..
i really love my FI (thomas) and find myself more so every day.
he LOVES my son like his own. has never had a problem taking care of him
i don''t think i''ve changed a diaper since he''s been in the picture...
and i do want to spend forever with him. we want another child together. i didn''t feel like we should have
to get married to have children (since both of us have been married b4). but being a teacher, it''s a very fine line to
walk. as a teacher i have to set an example and being a single pregnant woman is not so great. not that i care what others
think.

thomas did propose to me so this ring... it''s sorta like a promise ring. we''ll probably get married ONE DAY.

the photos that i posted in this thread is my actual hand with the actual ring! it''s the ring i''m getting. they have a cz in it right now
we''re picking out the stone. it will be a 1.5-1.6 ct. i''m going to be picking it up MAY 2nd. I think i''m going to wear it with the CZ till we get a stone.
i know it''s cheesy but.. damm. i love that ring. and besides, nobody is gonna ask and I''M not gonna tell that it''s a cz..

it''ll be our little secret hehehehe

hopefully i covered all the basis.
lemme check

I am so sorry you had such a brief time with your first hubby, but I am happy that you have found love again with a great guy who loves your son too. That is so nice to hear. I vote for the band too, by the way!

Oh my, that is so sad. But how lovely that you have found love again, and have a great man to be a father figure to your son. That's pretty lucky if you ask me. The setting is gorgeous. Love the band with it.

I''ve seen that Tacori ring in person and it''s even more stunning. I love and vote to get the band too. *when* you and Thomas get married I think you''ll like having both.

Beautiful ring. I am so sorry you lost your first husband, but then again I am happy you found love again. You will know when the time is right to marry Thomas.

I wish you both a lifetime of love and happiness.
