My best friend’s man asked for some e-ring advice while Christmas shopping yesterday. At the time, I was on a happy high at the news and said as long as its stackable and mixes with her fashionable chunky black rings.
So he showed me one and I said its beautiful, and that I’m happy to come by on the weekend to have a proper look. However he took it as I had approved and in the space of 6 hours, he bought it and proposed to her!
Her first reaction when she called me to share the news? “Hmmm, don’t know if its me. It’s quite…feminine”.
Do you think she can accessorise around it to suit her style?

@Berry-b.: Wow, that is a gorgeous ring!
If she likes to wear black jewelry, and stack rings, she could always get black diamond wedding bands and stack them on either side to create a set that is more her style.

Yes! She could get an unusual wedding band and stack anniversary rings and still wear her other chunky jewels. Tell her anything too big like her costume jewelry style would be uncomfortable day in and day out! That ring is a classic that she can mix in with her collection.

@PermaStudent: +1 to the bands. I like bigger jewellery, too, but she can accessorise it in so many ways, and it will stand out.

Your GF is clearly a jewellery lover and someone that like UNIQUE pieces
Nothing wrong with that… I am somewhat like that myself.
My ERing is big & chunky vs most peoples…
My passion for fashion / fun… comes across in my stacking WBands (currently have 2)… and I am planning to add more.
I can always move my Rings around as well to other fingers… set together, set apart.
With 3 Rings (1 ERing + 2WBands) I have lots of options… 1, 2, 3 rings at a time… mix n match / stack em etc.
Your Friend sounds happy that he proposed, so I am sure it will all turn out well in the long run.
Hope this helps,
PS… For future reference… Lol, if you should ever find yourself in this same boat again, I’d advise you to tell the Groom2B that he CONSULT with his Bride. I am a BIG proponent of women going out and actually trying on rings as we don’t all have the same sized hands / fingers or sense of style. What looks good in a photo can look radically different on one’s hand (just like a dress on a hanger vs on one’s body). PLUS when a couple looks together they usually are far better educated about gemstones… and therefore make a far better choice than the poor guy in the Jewellery Store at the mercy of the high pressure sales tactics that many Clerks on commission employ.

Well from the pics she looks feminie, did she mean traditional? Also agree on adding black diamond wedding band or even enhancer .

@This Time Round: THanks for the reply…are you sure you’re not bestie in disguise? :-p
That’s exactly what she does, has hundreds of baubles and always switch rings around but never without a chunky ring lol. She’s creative, I’m sure she’ll work it!
I’ll keep your advice in mind. It’s such a hard balancing act, some women like the element of surprise and in the case of my bestie, she’s never really known what she wanted (and still in shock!)
@atreyu547: Well she’s definitely a fashionista (not into girly things, but loves european fashion, etc).

@Schrodingers-Car: Thanks, 24 hours later and I’m starting to think this, more reassuring myself knowing how creative she is with her accessories.

To @Berry-b.: Lol, not your Bestie… just the “Wise OLD Bee”.
Glad to hear you are feeling better about this… your GF will “work it”… I am sure.
As any Fashionista would tell you….
It’s A DIAMOND… they go with EVERYTHING !!
(and also… NOTHING at all… *wink* )

WOW! That ring is just jaw droppingly beautiful!

@Schrodingers-Car: She always gets complimented for her trendsetting ways!

@happilyeveraftergirl: I agree…in the end it was her no-fiance that picked it so she said she loves it as she can work with that style and even better, they will be designing their own wedding rings!
