I recently went to the local Brilliant Earth showroom, and got to try on several different engagement ring styles. I didn’t take photos of all of them, but I’ll post some of the ones I did take! Overall, it was a really fantastic experience — their rings are all beautiful (my boyfriend and I very impressed, all of them were really gorgeous), and the customer service was excellent. I highly recommend visiting a showroom if you get the chance!
All of the rings in the showroom are size 6, set with ~1.5 ct equivalent CZ for reference. I don’t know the names of all the styles, but I’ll try to list the ones I do know.
Sorry, I don’t know the name of this one…:
My boyfriend loved Reverie, but I didn’t like that it wouldn’t fit flush with a wedding band. I loved Peony, but he wasn’t a huge fan. Luckily, we had the same very favourite — the Luna! I’m so excited about it, it’s so classy and lovely and simple but also unique. I didn’t want to take it off!! I can’t wait for it to be my forever ring. Our original timeline was for my SO to propose in about a year, but he told me after this appointment that things might have been moved up in his plan, and that it’d be before the end of April 2018 but that’s all he’s going to tell me. It’s an exciting time indeed! 🙂
Also sorry about my nails and fingers in general, I did not do any type of preparatory maintenance for these photos… oops.
If you have questions about a specific ring I didn’t post photos of, lemme know and I’ll tell if you if I saw it or tried it on and what I thought!

I loved seeing this, thank you for sharing! I too went down to the Brilliant Earth showroom to look at engagement rings. I tried on 5, and shared my photos with my fiancé for him to choose what he liked best! He ended up going with the petite twisted vine, which was a lovely choice.
I agree with you about their customer service. It was outstanding. They are non-commission based, and I know it showed because my fiancé relied on the honesty of the rep he worked with when picking out a setting and diamond.

I really loved the twisted vine!! Lovely choice!!! I tried on one of the twisted vine engagement rings and really liked it, but also tried on one of the bands (I don’t know what it’s called, one strand had diamonds and the other was plain) with the Luna solitaire, and I loved how they looked together — I definitely might consider that as a wedding band down the line! And yes, it was worlds different than mall jewelry stores we’ve peeked into, where the sales reps can be so pushy and intrusive and make you feel bad for just browsing. At Brilliant Earth, there was zero pressure at all to buy a ring from them now or ever, and that definitely put us at ease!

I absolutely ADORE my ring from Brilliant Earth!!!!
The local jeweler I use for maintenance said that the craftsmanship is stellar. The customer service there is incredible – even though they’re on the pricey side, the quality, customer service, and ethical sourcing make it so, so worth the price. I mean, they handled my neuroticism perfectly. Not every online resource did that. I picked three rings out and my Fiance picked his favorite.
We are going to get our wedding bands from them as well – but now you’ve made me want to take the trip to the showroom in Boston.
I have the Luxe Anthology setting in platinum with a .90ct oval.

Beautiful ring!!! I’m not sure yet if we’re going to go with Brilliant Earth or MoissaniteCo, since we are both very interested in moissanite (he’s super into space and loves the origin story, I’m a scientist so I like the lab created part) and they both carry the same bezel set ring. It’s up to my SO at this point! But wherever we get the engagement ring from, I think we’ll definitely make a trip back to Brilliant Earth to look more closley at wedding bands. They’re all so beautiful!
