After a few weeks of lurking these boards and ogling all of the beautiful pictures I decided to join – because I am looking for advice!
My boyfriend and I have been together 5 years now, and he says we will be engaged sometime in 2011! I’m pretty excited and I am a planner so I have already started checking out rings. I found moissaniteco.com and I love their rings… and their prices. It’s only January 31st so I know i’m WAY WAY ahead of myself by looking at rings, but I can’t help it! There are so many beautiful choices here and on all the websites, and I’ve got it narrowed down to a few favorites.
I thought I liked three stones at first… but I keep coming back to the solitaires, they are so classic and beautiful. I have long slender fingers and I think that would suit me best. I need to go try some on in person to really decide what style I love but for right now I’m considering the one below. It comes with a matching wedding band of baguettes and little round stones but I think it’s too matchy matchy… do you bees think an eternity band would go with it?
I just LOVE the look of eternity bands and solitaires, but I wanted a solitaire with a little bit more flair than just a plain band…

i’m not sure they do…just because one has the baguettes and the other has the rounds….but then again the center stone is round. hmmmm

It’s hard to say without seeing them on a real hand…but I think an eternity ring goes with most things so they probably do.

I love that style e-ring! I think the band and the e-ring might look nice together, but it is hard to say without seeing them together. You might want to check the return policy before purchasing.
PS-Not too early to be looking at all!! We were looking at rings for at least a year before we finally agreed on which one to get. It’s a huge decision!

I think they go together pretty well, actually.

Are those round diamonds after the baguettes? I think it pulls everything together very nicely, plus your center stone is round, so it will echo that.

*sigh* Solitaires with eternity bands are the best! I am like you, and wanted a solitaire with a little extra bling to it accenting the band. It’s hard to tell for sure without seeing the two rings together on a finger, but I think they would work.
It’s never too early to be looking! I spent like 6 months (at least) searching for my perfect ring, and it took me a while. There are so many gorgeous rings out there, it was hard to figure out which I liked best. I think going to check them out in person is a great idea. I thought for sure I wanted a princess cut with trillian side stones, but once I tried some on, I just didn’t love the way they looked on my hand – I realized round stones looked much better.

personally, I love solitaires– but I like simple, elegant designs.

My neighbor has a GORGEOUS channel set band that has baguettes in it. That may be a good route to go! Seriously, after I saw her ring, I started looking at baguette rings.

I personally think they would look great together, the both give off a similar vibe but contrast each other enough. Honestly people have different styles and preferences and while you can ask for opinions, only you can determine your own style. I have seen plenty of sets that other women gush over and I think are just not pretty and vice versa. I looked online forever before I found the ring that fit both my tastes and my FI and it is absolutely perfect for me and am so happy.
I have a cushion cut stone with pear side stones and I plan on getting a 7 stone wedding band with round diamonds and they don’t match, but they will “go”.

I love this site – everyone is so nice! Thanks for all your replies… I definitely do need to go try rings in person. I just really love eternity bands for a wedding band and I hope I love an engagement ring that goes with it! I have seen some beautiful combos on this site.
