In other words the design or ring you wanted say a while ago change and now you want a totally different ring? I know mine did my b/f says I’m so indecesive and I guess his right to a point. I wanted a sapphire pear well b/f say he won’t get me one it has to be a diamond so I gave up on that. The new ring I want is below with a pear center stone of course. I don’t think I’ll change my mind anymore I hope not.

I saw a ring that was a princess cut with trillions in the window of my mother’s jewler when I was 15 and fell in love. When it came time to get engaged I wasn’t quite sure what exactly I wanted so I tried on a ton of different style and the second I put on a princess cut with trillion side stones it all came back to me and I was in awe. So we went straight to that jewler and needless to say I have a custom made princess cut with side trillions. Trust you gut!

haha I made a post about this last week. My style hasn’t “changed” so much as it has broadened 🙂

Yep! I wanted and got a big pear sapphire (mine is with a tiny white gold band and diamond halo and pavés). Thought since I was a little girl that I wanted a sapphire, DEFINITELY not a diamond. And since I don’t like sapphires set in yellow gold, here I am eating my words! Within a few weeks I realized it wasn’t right for me. I’ve always been a yellow gold girl and the idea of wearing a white ring and wedding band for all eternity doesn’t sit right with me. Also, I really love intricate antique bands and this one is just…plain! But mostly importantly, the sapphire either A) looks fake because it’s so big, B) looks too gaudy to wear in public/to class/on public transportation/etc.–it makes me feel unsafe!, and C) doesn’t go with A LOT of my outfits, and it’s really noticeable.
So we’re going to start saving for a reproduction of a beautiful yellow gold antique band and will set it with 2 carats of Moissanite, since that’s all we can afford atm as we dumped all our money into the first ring! Ah, c’est la vie. There’s no way I could have known before trying it out.

Mary it’s from engagementringsdirect.com the mark t premium collection. I plan to tweak it a little I don’t need the diamond s to go all the way around the band. This is my dream ring I just hope I can get it for two thousand once I tweak it. Mark has a lot of beautiful rings on his webiste check them out.

mine did. i wanted a three stone ring but when i tried them on while shopping with the mister, we both were underwhelmed by it. i just didn’t like the way it looked. now i’m in love with the halo-settings. i always thought those settings were beautiful but that it just wasn’t my style. oh how wrong i was! lol

Oh, yes. I have always, ALWAYS wanted a white gold diamond solitare. In January, we went to a jewelry store around the corner from my apartment, and I found this beauty: Celtic ring
It’s still a diamond solitare, but it’s much blingier than I ever thought I wanted.

Yup, I originally wanted a princess cut solitaire with a pave setting…but I tried that on and it didnt look right! So now I want a three stone princess cut with pave setting…it just looks right on my finger…make sure you try on something similar before you decide!! That is…if you have a say in it 😉

I reaaaaally wanted this micro-pave setting with diamonds along the head… really badly, to the point i had a dream about it! We went to look ONE last time, and I decided I wanted a shared-prong 4 stone ring with a large round center. Way opposite of what I originally wanted…but I am happily waiting now 🙂

Yep! Mine totally did. From the time I was in high school I was SURE that I wanted a plain white gold band with a princess cut solitaire. It just seemed really classic, clean, and timeless to me (and it is!). At that time I would have said my absolute dream ring would have been a .5 ct princess cut solitaire set tiffany style.
Then I got older…. and I knew a lot of girls who got engaged and got white gold princess cut solitaires… and I just felt like I wanted something a little more unusual (no offense to anyone who has one, I still think they’re beautiful!). So I started paying more attention to different shapes and such and I went through phases of what I wanted. I thought I wanted a halo ring but FI doesn’t like them and then my SIL got one… then I thought I wanted an asscher cut but I decided it was too much like princess cut for me…. Finally about 6 weeks before my FI proposed (and apparently about 2 weeks after he had purchased my ring!!) I decided that my absolute dream ring would be a cushion cut solitaire in a white gold pave band. And I got…… a cushion cut solitaire in a PLATINUM pave band! So basically my FI did even better than I had hoped… and also figured out what I wanted before I did. 100 pts for awesome men eh? 🙂

Nope. I wanted something simple and vintage, and that’s what I got. And I looooove it!

Once I saw this ring I knew it was what I wanted..

TOTALLY! haha. i wanted a big asscher with side baguettes. He would have gotten that for me, but once we actually started shopping after we got engaged, I picked out an antique art deco-y ring. Go figure!

I initially wanted a princess or emerald center stone with baguettes on the side. Once I tried it on I really didn’t love it so much, and I fell in love with the solitaire (in a trellis setting).
