So when we went to look for a new ring to replace my old one (we thought it would be nice to buy a bigger ring) I was looking for this exactly.
We ended up not finding anything we liked and randomly his grandmother offered me her ring (without knowing we were looking for a new one)
It’s the complete opposite of what I wanted but I found when I tried lon the one I wanted it looked weird one me, we tried every style shape and color and I didn’t like any we ordered tons of fake ones to “try out” the different styles and stuff and I was never happy, I hated the marquis shape and now I LOVE it!

I got the man I wanted, and to me, the ring was secondary.

I did! Mainly because he ended up letting me pick my own ring. I absolutely love it AND what it symbolizes.

I went in a giant circle, first thinking I wanted a round solitaire in yellow gold, then going through pretty much every possible ring imaginable, and ended up back at my solitaire in yellow gold (which is what i got!). Now I do think I could have gone with a pear morganite, because thats the one look that has actually stuck in my mind for the last year and I still really really want. Other than my round of course!

I picked out my ring! I was having a really tough week who we went to the mall( I never noticed this mall has about 10 jewelry stores) We went into them all and I tried on a bunch until I light up at mine. I also didn’t think my ring was gonna look like this!

When I initially started looking, I was all into rings with a twisty design. If it had some sort of curvy design, I loved it! I also really liked all the “knot” style rings.
I will end up with a bezel set cushion solitaire. I totally did not think I was a solitaire girl since I really loved little designs and details, but after trying some on, I was sold. I also never liked cushion stones, but lo and behold, that is what I fell in love with. Bezels also really grew on me. I thought they were ugly before, but now I love ’em! Haha.

I didn’t pick out my ring at all, but honestly I think it is perfect. A bit bigger than I was expecting…but I’m okay with that 🙂

That was very nice of his grandmother! Pretty ring!
I have always been into round stones and at first I had a .70 round but DH has always loved princess cut. So when we decided to upgrade we went to go look at princess cut stones. Long story short, I ended up with a 1.02 princess (celebration cut diamond) but I always knew I would end up with purple in my set somewhere and I ended up with an amethyst and diamond band. So my answer is yes and no…lol

Yup, what I thought I wanted turned out to be exactly what I wanted even though I’d never tried on e-rings before. I did have halo lust really bad after getting engaged after seeing so many on the bee, and couldnt get it out of my mine, so I went and tried some on.. turns out, while gorgeous in pictures an on others, it wasnt for me.

Yes, I got exactly what I wanted (and had been lusting after for years) and I absolutely love it. I couldn’t imagine a different ring.

Yep! I custom designed my ring with DH based on what I decided I wanted after months of virtual ring shopping 🙂
