I wanted something interesting… and only pear, cushion, or round cut center stone. Preferably sapphire, spinel, garnet, moissanite, or diamond. No baguettes or 3-stone rings. Clarity and cut being more important than color and carat (for any stone). He had a lot of options! 

I agree with a PP… I don’t get why people flame posts like these. We like what we like, but there’s no reason to hate!

I wanted recycled metal, conflict-free and ethically mined stone, nothing heart-shaped, and not extremely sparkly. Preferably not a diamond. Beyond that I wanted him to pick out the ring entirely on his own. He picked the perfect sapphire ring.

I did not want my e-ring to be a diamond. I wanted a peach sapphire set in rose gold but loved padparadscha sapphires more (but not the price tag). We ended up finding a padparadscha I loved and he knew it was the one. So I have a padparadscha set in rose gold. I’m debating about getting a diamond wedding band though.

What was most important to me was SPARKLE! And I let that be known, haha. And quality before size, but that went along with the need for sparkle. 

He knew I muuuuch preferred white gold, liked cushion cuts, and hated flowers. But then he was given an heirloom ring to propose with that was yellow gold with a floral-like setting… He was so self-conscious when he proposed because he knew the ring was totally opposite what I wanted, but hey, it sparkles!

1) sparkly and 2) able to have a band sit flush. I thought halos were tired so I knew he wouldn’t pick one. Friends were getting engaged left and right and the rings were pretty much the same.

One time we went to look at rings together and saw every shape of diamond in roughly the same carat range(a really useful exercise if you’re totally undecided). I feel in love with ovals but it was never a requirement.
