RobbieAndJuliahaha :  Same. Props to people who care to find out about that stuff and are knowledgeable, but it’s all nice sparkles to me.

RobbieAndJuliahaha :  I am not big on diamonds… I have a sapphire ring, so when it comes to diamonds I don’t know a lot, but that’s because I don’t really care to know.

RobbieAndJuliahaha :  Same here. I know what the four Cs are, but I don’t have any real working knowledge about stones. I just like it if it looks pretty.

I didn’t know anything about rings until after I was engaged, but I know alot now by osmosis from here! It’s more or less the same handful of things that get talked about so it’s not too hard to follow along.

I learnt a lot from coming on the board. I knew next to nothing before that! I found this a useful reference about cut

Guide to Gem Cutting Terms

This was a useful guide about settings

16 Awesome Engagement Ring Styles You Need to Learn About NOW

The rest I picked up from the bees, some of whom are pretty much experts. You don’t need to be an expert to know what you like and specs aren’t important if you love the piece, but knowing what they mean can help make sure you are getting good value for money and also help you understand how much care the ring will need and if it is robust enough for daily wear and that kind of thing.

100% of what I know about rings I picked up on Weddingbee…..and I still feel like everyone else is speaking a different language! 

Also, I don’t know the specs of my own ring either :-p

RobbieAndJuliahaha :  I have to look up my specs if someone wanted to know them. All I remember is that it is a nice diamond. I gave my husband the following parameters when he was looking for a ring: Round diamond (just a plain diamond) with silver-colored band. I would have been happy with gold, too. I thought I was making it easy for him. He thought it was difficult!

XD I think this is how most people are! I don’t know much about coloured stones, but I’ve been a diamond fiend for years. I buy myself more diamonds than Fiance has ever bought me lol. So I know quite a bit.

We all have different interests! I’m sure you know the ins and outs of tons of things that other people know only surface info. I’m sure half the shit I read about diamonds is so dry to most people LOL.

I’m pretty high level knowledge until I get something. Whether it’s an appliance, diamonds, a new phones, etc. Hahah! When looking for diamonds I also got info from Pricescope, they’re pretty anal though. Depends if you’re a product researcher or not. Funny, I tend to do heavy research after buying something, so bad!

RobbieAndJuliahaha :  I didn’t know much until after I was engaged and it was time to look around. I learnt a lot on here because big chances are you aren’t going to get it from a lot of chain jewellers.
