The "in-between" ring

the in-between ringMatt proposed with what we call an in-between ring.

This allowed him to propose with a ring that I could wear, but not with a diamond.
This was for 2 reasons, firstly I thought when the time comes I would like to design the ring together and secondly, we live together already and I look after the money & budget side of things. He would have had to sneak around for years for me not to notice the money.

When I explained this to other couples & friends of ours they thought it was a great idea.

I now know 3 other couples aside from us that have proposed with an in-between ring. This is good for young couples that do not have the budget up front, it allows them time to save for that perfect ring.

It was great, Matt and I had the experience of shopping for the rings together, designing them and having that moment of choosing everything together.

It was a really special moment for us and I recommend it to anyone who does not have the budget up front or are unsure of what they want.

    That’s a great idea! My partner, David and I, bought a beautiful ring. It’s not a real diamond but looks like one. I wanted to focus the money on our wedding, rather than splash out on an extremely expensive engagement ring. I’ve told David if he wants to buy me a proper engagement ring in the future, he is more than welcome to, but just wait until the wedding is over.

      That’s awesome! At the end of the day it is about being with your partner for the rest of your life and not about the money spent on the ring. Whether the ring costs $2 or $20,000 it still has the same meaning. All the best for your wedding :)
