Alright waiting bees… just a fun little question 🙂
What do you really not want on your engagement ring? (ex: carat over 4, carat under 1, rose gold, cz, etc). If your boyfriend put this on there, would you ask for an upgrade sometime down the line? Just wondering what your styles are and what they AREN’T! 🙂
I am not doing this to seem stuck up or like if my boyfriend gets a ring like this that I will hate it… I am not looking for hate or judgement. It’s just for fun! 🙂
I’ll start! I really hope my boyfriend does not give me a lopsided banded ring. I don’t know what the name for that, so heres a pic
Even if he got me a ring similar to this, with the twisty band, I don’t think I’d ask for an upgrade. I don’t want to hurt him like that. I’d just learn to love it! But I hope I don’t have to! 🙂 haha
Also, no hate for anyone who has/wants this style ring. It’s just not my personal taste 🙂

I had a coworker that designed an original ring for his wife–ugliest thing I’ve ever seen. As I remember it had like 4 diamonds on it, each one a different cut–round, pear, emerald and one other I can’t remember. If I got one like that, yeah, sorry honey, but I’d want another ring.
I also didn’t want yellow gold. Just not a yellow gold girl. But I avoided all that by picking my ring and giving the picture to my DH–“this is the one I want”

I don’t like emerald or square cuts and I don’t like clusters.

Oh and yellow gold is a no no for my skin tone!!

I would not want a moissanite or yellow gold. Honestly, I’d have a long list of the things I wouldn’t want, but those two would be the worst.
Luckily we already have my engagement ring and it’s perfect (almost!) so I don’t have to worry.

I wouldn’t want an engagement ring he gave a previous fiancee, who had given it back to him!

I would not want: sapphires (or any other gems), yellow gold, three stone, marquise, quad style, channel setting, knife edge setting…that’s off the top of my head. Also I don’t want anything with a huge, ornate setting. Don’t mean to offend anyone who has these elements in their ring, but they are just not my tatste.

You totaly just owned this thread! That would by far be the worst.

I didn’t want – and thankfully didn’t get – white gold, diamonds, princess cuts or three stone settings.

My SO and I recently picked out my ring and it’s perfect! But a few things I really didn’t want included: yellow gold, a wide band and a princess cut stone. Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of incredibly beautiful rings that include all of those things but they just weren’t for me 🙂

Haha I am very picky… There is so much I can’t stand in rings. Fortunately my fiance guessed I was that way and we picked together.

I wouldn’t want a super blingy setting or a giant stone because they don’t suit me. I wouldn’t want a pearl or a soft gemstone because I’m clumsy and I would destroy it. I wouldn’t want any nickel in the setting because I’m allergic. And I wouldn’t want a black diamond because I’m a crazy person and my reason is entirely illogical.

I wouldn’t want yellow gold, rose gold, two-tone metal, a wide band, a setting that sits high (I’d gouge myself), a cluster ring, an asymmetrical setting, a channel setting, a setting encrusted with diamonds on all sides, anything that screams 80s, large prongs, a stone larger than 1.5 carats, a princess cut stone, an emerald cut stone, a heart shaped stone, gem stones, CZ, Mossy…
I’m a particular girl with classic taste^_^’ Thankfully my SO and I both agreed on the same ring. Like most things with me, I know it when I see it:)

If he had brought me a diamond center stone I would have been done. We talked about this extensively and my dislike for them.

Clear stones. Yellow gold.
But my SO and I already have the ring he’ll use IF he proposes picked out, so I already know what I would be getting.
