I took these pictures the last time I saw him.. we were having lunch with my family at Liberty Market where my sister works. The pictures themselves didn't turn out as well as I'd hoped.. but its the look in his eyes that I can't get enough of. I'm so surprised that I could capture those looks in some photos.
Just looking through Allure magazine and found some pictures of engagement rings.. so I decided to mess around and look some up myself.. just to see what i like. Personally i'm not a huge diamond person. I share the belief that diamonds look tacky on women under 40 (Breakfast at Tiffany's) but I understand and respect my culture's tradition for diamond engagement rings. So this is what I came up with.
I love the simplicity of the solitaire ring on the bottom, but I also like the detail and sparkle of the one above. And the very top ring I like because the stones aren't too big, but there are a lot. I think the ring is a bit more antique looking and detailed. Diamonds are freaking expensive. I feel bad for guys. haha but it does give the woman a sense of worth and value I suppose.
