Would you ever help your significant other pay for your engagement ring? Apparently it’s happening more than we know.
Last week, while falling asleep to the evening news, I overheard a report that had me bolt up from my semi-coma and stare at my TV screen in confusion. The newscasters were discussing the increasing frequency of women helping their boyfriend’s purchase engagement rings— by chipping in. Keep reading »
True love is getting the person you’re with the absolute perfect gift — even if it may not make sense to anyone but you two. Take the lucky lass that received this amazing 20-sided die engagement ring. A poster on Off Beat Bride explained that she made the ring after finding a mini metal polyhedral (that’s 20-sided) dice set. She and her girlfriend both love “Dungeons and Dragons.” “With advice from a friend in jewelry design school, I researched ring settings and doodled designs. I initially wanted to make the ring myself by buying a setting and putting the die in it. This was slightly insane. I quickly realized that if I wanted this done right, I’d need to take it to a professional.”
So she did. And after three months she presented the ring to her girlfriend, who of course said yes. You don’t turn down a 20-sided die ring. [Off Beat Bride]
I have to confess, I’m not a huge “Star Wars” fan. In fact the last time I watched a “Star Wars” movie was when I was 16 and hanging out with a skater dude named Janic. Basically, I watched the movie just so we could make out (this is a recurring theme in my life). What? He was cute and French Canadian!
Anyway, not a “Star Wars” fan, but I do love these “Star Wars” engagement rings, mostly because I love the total bitchiness of responding to someone’s “I love you” with a snarky “I know.” Thank God for
Harrison Ford’s Han Solo’s bitchy response to Princess Leia’s declaration of love, right? [Swank Metalsmithing]
I lost my engagement ring. I mean, really lost it. I haven’t seen it in a month, maybe more. I wish I was a robot and I could check my memory chip and replay all of my thoughts and actions, because then I would know exactly what happened, and I would also experience those amazing tortillas we got all over again. But maybe robots don’t like melted cheese as much as I do?
I looked under everything with a flashlight. My dad blamed the cat, but she maintains her innocence. I looked under everything again, with a different flashlight that seemed a little brighter. It was gross under everything and I didn’t want to reach in there, but I’m pretty sure there was no ring.
And I’m probably not supposed to say this, but I don’t miss it. Keep reading »
You know how when Prince William and Kate got engaged, there were all these jerks hawking replicas of her ring everywhere? Well Nick Gordon, the “adopted brother”/boyfriend of Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina just proposed to her with one of those things. You can buy the damn ring on Overstock.com for $69.99. Now, it’s not that I think it’s shitty that he got her a cheap ass ring — it’s just that getting a Kate Middleton replica ring is totally … lame.
