@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.
