It’s lovely. And quite honestly, I can’t see it being worn as other than an engagement ring! Perfect for the purpose!

@Andrea1032:  a friend of mine has a ring like that. her fiance proposed to her with it. 

Just because its not your average solitaire diamond/moissy doesn’t mean it can’t be used an engagement ring. Today a lot more women like untraditional e-rings!

If you love it, thats all that matters

@Andrea1032:  I agree with PPs. Have a look at the ring threads here, nowadays erings come in all shapes and sizes!

I think any ring can be an engagement ring, as long as it has meaning to you.  The ring you like certainly looks like a “traditional” engagement ring to me.

Yup, definitely looks like an engagement ring to me. As a matter of fact my SO’s twin brother proposed to his now wife with a similar looking ring!

Hi @Andrea1032:  first and foremost as this is your Debut Post … a BIG Welcome to “the Hive”

This absolutely can be an ERing… you’ll find that a lot of Jewellers are marketing these styles of rings as such.

As an Encore Bride (and someone a bit older), I fell in love with this more modern “cocktail” style of ERing when I was looking with Mr TTR

The one you have here is referred to as a Princess Quad with a Halo (the 4 square stones in the centre in an invisble setting, is the Princess Quad bit, and then that is surrounded by a Halo of other stones)

I liked the Princess Quads I saw very much, but in the end we ended up going with a Round Billiant Centre, and NO Halo.

I attach two photos for your reference, a close-up of my own ERing, and then a second that shows it with the Sparkly WBand that I chose to go with it (not a set, the WBand was bought seperately)

As noted, the main thing that matters is that YOU & YOUR FIANCE LOVE THE RING.

Beyond that it is only called an ERing because that is the purpose that it serves. 

Check out the RING Board here on WBee, and you’ll see that several women have Rings similar to the one you’ve fallen in love with.

There are no rules any longer on what constitutes an ERing (if one choose a Ring at all) … altho traditional Diamond Solitaires are still popular, if you stick around WBee for awhile you’ll see that there are unlimited variations on what other couples have chosen for the symbol of their commitment to one another.

Hope this helps,

@Andrea1032:  Mine is similar except it’s a radiant instead of a quad. 🙂

I can only echo what has already been said. To me it look like an engagement ring but even if it didn’t, that wouldn’t matter! My Dad’s fiancee’s engagement ring doesn’t look at all like your average engagement ring, but the sentiment is the same 🙂

@FutureMrsHallam:  & @rcac1208:  – GORGEOUS Rings ladies.

TO @Andrea1032:  – glad to help.  Hope to see you often on WBee in the future.  If you are “waiting” for the Ring, you might want to check out the WAITING Board here on WBee to meet other gals who are in the same boat.

(Actually there are lots of great Boards here on WBee… surf around… something for everyone).
