Wait until you get it and see how you feel about it – YOU – don’t worry about what anyone else may think or not think, it’s whether you love it and it makes you happy!

I would definitely wait until you’ve had a chance to try it on. 🙂 You might be surprised at how much the ring will differ between pictures and in real life.

SimpleeAmbur:  I think it’s really pretty! Really unique for an engagemnt ring.

I would wait to make ant decisions until you actually have the ring in your possession! You may get the delivery put it on and wonder what you were douting in the first place!

The only thing I would fear about an ornate ring with lots of little stones from the 40s… is that it’s too delicate for daily wear and stones will start coming out. I would take to a jeweler to have it assessed and return it if need be.

I would also wait until you get it. You may love it. And if you do, I’d take it to a jeweler and have it assessed. Make sure all the prongs are tight, etc.

Love it, but then it is soooo what it is, I would probably either:

a) wear it as engagement and then wedding ring (good luck fitting a band with that) and damn the consequences

b) get a wedding band to wear most days and bring it out on special occasions (thus taking good care of it)

It is lovely though.

That’s really pretty! I wouldn’t make any decisions until you see it in person and are able to try it on. Please post pics when it arrives!

..tk: looks solid. So what’s the story about hitting the knuckle? Is that a style rule for those shield rings? (Not snarking – I’m unfamiliar with those kinds of rings)

..tk:  I really like it! Glad you endes up keeping it. It’s really pretty, and I like elongated (?) rings like that 🙂

Love it!!! If you’ve seen twilight, bella’s ring has the same shape as yours! And she moved it to her right hand once she got her wedding band. I think it’s a great idea! If I had your ring, that’s what I would do. I love vintage pieces.
