AnonymousBee12345:  That is LOVELY! I don’t think it’s traditional, but if you don’t care about that I think it would be a great engagement ring.  Wish I’d thought of that for myself!

I think any ring can be an engagement ring.  Just think about how it will ‘age’.  Will you still love it 10? 20? 50? years from now? 

Also, be prepared to get lots of “comments” from other people about it being unique. Mine is a princess cut solitaire on a thin band and i still get weird comments from older people about it being “unique” and “different”. 

Personally, I think the flower ring would age better and look more like an engagement ring to everyone else. But ultimately it is whatever you want to be a symbol of your love that you want to wear forever.

If you like the heart design but aren’t sure about that particular ring, look for heart shaped diamonds. I especially love them in a bezel setting.

You’re paying a premium for the Tiffany’s name, but if that’s something that you require in an engagment ring, then it is not my place to judge. I personally don’t think it looks like an engagement ring, so you might have people ask you “Is that your e-ring?” quite often.

AnonymousBee12345:  If you guys are active a bezel ring is a good option…

But, there are an INSANE amount of women that come to these boards because their fiance bought the ring without consulting them and they are unhappy with the ring. It puts a lot of pressure on a new engagement and can sully the whole experience for a lot of brides.

My best advice would be to subtly ask for hints about what she likes or look at her pinterest or etsy account to get a feel for what she likes.

I agree with the PP. Maybe you could talk to your girlfriend’s best friend and have her get some information. 

I wouldn’t just pick something unique without getting word from your girl first.

Has she given you any guidelines or mentioned any styles she specifically likes?<br /><br />

Some more unique stone shapes are heart, marquise, emerald, oval and pear. Sometimes adding a unqiue shaped stone is enough to make even the most basic settings seem so different. 

I think a bezel set is great for someone who is active. It keeps the diamond very secure. It’s also unique. You can get a heart shape if you like that shape.

You might also want to look at “vintage” style rings. http://www.jamesallen.com/engagement-rings/side-stones/vintage-round-diamond-and-marquise-sapphire-engagement-ring-item-49746 

That said, if you really want to surprise her without knowing for sure what she wants… check return and exchange policies. Remember that she has to wear it forever and look at it every day so she will want to be sure it is the right one. So shop local, or at a reputable online store (like Blue Nile, James Allen).

To get the most sparkle for your money, look at cluster rings (like the flower)! They’re made of small diamonds which add sparkle and are much more affordable than a large stone. 

Here are some unqiue options to consider.

AnonymousBee12345:  We wre looking on more traditional rings from a few pricey brands (not tiffany). But as where we live it’s not very traditional to continue wearing the engagemnt ring after the wedding, and given that us being young and paying the wedding we could really use money for something more useful. I wanted smth symbolic, like a knot or infinity ring. He proposed and than we went to Tiffany the same day and picked out the infinity ring. It was very romantic, just like in the movie Breakfast at Tifanny’s that I love! We went for a more reputable/  recongnised here brand for the wedding bands though, because these we will wear forever!
