It took me a long time. I bookmarked ones I absolutley loved, then came back a couple days later and opened the bookmarks in different tabs. I compared them, looking into how high the settings were, how the stones were set, and how versatile the ring would be. Just by doing that, I was able to cut a lot of the ones I liked out of my bookmarks. I just kept doing that for a couple weeks, taking a few days of a break and then coming back, until I narrowed it down. I also searched the BTD forums and here on weddingbee to see certain styles on people’s hands. For instance, I would search “halo” or “round cut”, even “__ ct size __ finger” and that helped a lot, too. Good luck!

Searching this forum helped me quite a bit! But the biggest help was their Facebook page. tjey have better real life photos of rings there and it made me make up my mind so fast!

It was so hard. I actually had more difficulty after finding the bee. I have always loved solitaires and I was falling in love with halos. I ended up staying true to what I originally loved 🙂

@Haley_Comet:  This is my second time to be engaged and I knew I didn’t want anything even remotely similar to my first one. I had always wanted the Tiffany Legacy (even before my first engagement) and knew that I didn’t want a diamond (frist ring was a diamond and I got a whopping $400 for the ring to help pay off the $6K cost of cancelling the wedding, the ring originally cost about $2K). I found it on the MoCo website and was really excited. I went back and forth a LOT on other rings because I thought I might want a solitaire or a round stone. Luckily for me 3 of my srat sisters got engaged recently and they ALL had round stones, so that narrowed it down for me, no round stones. Then I waffled a lot on the setting, but knowing myself I liked the bezel idea, so no prongs. (4 out of the 5 rings I picked had prongs) Finally, I decided that I’ve loved the look of the Legacy for over 7 years, that should say something. If there is something you have always been drawn to, trust that. I trusted my gut, but I have to tell you, seeing all the beautiful rings here made me question my choice a LOT. It took a lot more time deciding on the MM and metal! Good luck!

Before FI and I got engaged, I mentioned moissy because I didn’t know his budget.

We looked at rings about 1.5 years before he proposed, and we both decided we loved 3 stone rings. Then with a friend, I walked into a jewlery store and found a 3 stone halo and fell IN LOVE with that style.

Theres a few moissy 3 stone halo’s, but this one is my fav

I definitely agree to just narrow down what you like/don’t like. Try on some rings in other jewlery stores.

I didn’t get a moissy in the end, but there are so many nice ones!

good luck 🙂

For me it wasn’t too hard to narrow down because I don’t like halos, side stones, patterned shanks, or thick shanks – so that cut out a lot of choices!

I’d look at the solitaire pages and then I decided that I wanted a dainty, 2mm band – that narrowed it down even more.  I also came here and searched for threads featuring rings of people with my ring size (5.5-6) and note what I liked.  🙂

We haven’t gotten my ring yet but I’ve also heard lots of good things about Schubach’s when it comes to moissanite. 🙂

Based on the Shape I wanted (cushion) and style (halo with side stones).  I eliminated any set with a curved or contour band since I’m not a fan of those.  Same for any that did not come with a set or if the band had a notch in it or a gap.  At that point I only had three of them left.  From there I let DH make the final decision and that’s how I got the set I have today.
