    Based on your description, I would probably assume it was a cocktail ring.

    When I was picking out my e-ring, I chose a black diamond. Someone told me, “That’s a dinner ring, not an engagement ring.” I simply replied, “If he proposes with it, it’s an engagement ring. This is what I want, so it’s what I’ll get.”

    i had those concerns because i wanted a rose gold morganite from etsy but i think you should go with what YOU want and what makes you happy. you dont have to justify anything. youre engaged! thats a great thing.

    I think it sounds gorgeous!  I’m also a November baby, so I’m partial to citrines 🙂  So many people are getting unconventional rings now, as long as it’s on the correct finger, I think people will assume correctly that it’s an engagement ring.  The only question I would have is a logistical one – with that shape, are you going to be wearing a wedding band, and if you are, have you thought about trying to get a band that will work with that shape?

    It’s a beautiful ring and if that’s what you want for an e-ring than you should go for it!

    Wow, it’s beautiful! I think you should get it if that’s what you want. But at the same time, I can tell you that if I saw someone wearing that I would probably think it was gorgeous but wouldn’t automatically peg it as an engagement ring. But who cares what strangers think, you know? You and those close to you will know what it is!

    @twink6:  Oh, so the citrines will be extra meaningful then!  I’d totally go for it.  The detailing is so striking too!

    @twink6:  I think you can have whatever you and your partner want for an e-ring. The one you posted, though, seems so big that it might be uncomfortable to wear all the time– that would be my concern about it. Also, it looks like it would be hard to wear a wedding band with it, if you were to get a wedding band too.

     

    It’s quite the elaborate creation– lovely piece of jewelry art.

    @twink6:  If you’re worried about the bulkiness (I would be) maybe it would be better to get something you’d be able to wear all the time, smaller and lower-profile. Have a look at things on Etsy– there are some very beautiful citrine rings I’ve seen on there, and many of the artists will do custom work with a stone of your choice. I actually have a citrine right hand ring from a seller on Etsy. (The only problem with this is that is is decidedly not low-prifile– I catch it on things all the time, and I have made pointed comments about this to my SO so he knows that I prefer an engagement ring that will not catch and that I can wear all the time) Here’s a picture, just for fun:

    I think it sounds pretty and who cares if it’s not an a convential engagement ring, your e-ring (or symbol of engagement) can be whatever you want it to be!

    On the first Sex & the City movie Big asks Carrie if she wants a diamond and she said “no, just get me a really big closet”. A diamond is not always necessary!

    @twink6:  I think you can wear whatever you want as an engagement ring, but that ring does look like it will get caught on a lot of things. I might look for something a little less bulky, but that is total personal preference. Wear whatever you like!
