Why did you choose the setting you chose.

I chose my solitaire because I determined that I wasn’t a blingy type of person so the simplicity suited me.  It also has delicate tulip prongs which make for a beautiful profile.

I wanted something simple and classic but with interesting detail.

I chose a halo because it seems so feminine. My husband chose this particular ring, but I really wanted a halo & he definitely got it right. He was worried that it wouldn’t be big enough, but I really enjoy the size. Bling without being massive.

DH chose my ring for me, but he took my general imput. I wanted a solitare because I’ve always loved how minimalistic and simple they look 🙂

mrsv18 :  Very cool it’s your grandmother’s stone! I chose a vintage style, because I like vintage. LOL!

We both wanted something classic and timeless, and I wanted some sparkle on the sides. Also we wanted something you don’t see every day. No actual photos of it yet, hopefully soon!!

I choose my halo for several reasons 

-I love the ornate detailing, your eye looks at the WHOLE ring, not just one part, this is the first thing that drew me to the style. Later, however, I developed an even more personal reason for loving it. I actually haven’t ever shared that reason to anyone yet- but to me, it’s a halo > angels wear halos > God gives us guardian angels, in a way, i sort of see it as a physical reminder that God is with me. I’ve gone through many trials lately, some that I can’t talk to anyone, only pray about, so it sort of became my secret silent strength. 

-It’s unique, a twist on the more classic solitaire, and in my opinion, will age really well. there’s nothing particularly over the top, or super excessive about it, you just can’t go wrong. Plus the sides are infinity twists, so I like to believe that as a representation of my FI’s love, we will always be infinite also. 

Sorry the picture isn’t the clearest! It was the only one I had left on my phone after saving all my other pictures on another device

I chose a three stone setting because I thought it showed off my sapphire center stone the best. I chose channel set stones in the band because it’s more secure than pave set ones.

ETA: I subtly-not-so-subtly made sure my FI knew what style I liked, but he went out and picked the actual ring himself- AND it was a major surprise! (Half of me was expecting to not get my dream ring, but a compromised version because, well, reality)

I wanted something classic and simple but with detail.  And I have loved Ovals for over 10 years, way before they got overly popular 😝 thanks Blake Lively 😂

I chose a solitaire with compass prongs (don’t have it yet hehe) because I wanted something classic, clean, classy and timeless, but I also am very detail oriented so I fell in love with the subtle detail of the compass prongs, they just give it a bit of a twist and set it apart without it being untraditional! This is the ring I want from when Birks was featured in a blog post (a bigger centre stone than I will have I am sure, haha):

mrsv18 :  Gorgeous Ring!!! 

I chose a solitaire as well because I didn’t want my SO using too much of our modest ring budget on an expensive setting. I wanted that money to be put towards the stone. I’m also not really in to pavé and I didn’t want a halo. Plus I want to be able to switch up the look with some thin stacking bands, so I preferred something simpler.

Now that I have it, I can’t imagine another setting!!

I was somewhat surprised, for the better! I always was very open that I wanted a princess cut who a halo. I also perfered a diamond band, but he picked out a princess quad with a halo and a plain and and I love it and couldn’t imagine having a diamond band now. I think it looks more unique and it means a whole lot more that he picked it out on his own. I didn’t want anything huge because it’s just not me. I just think princess cuts are stunning.
