I think my e-ring would be considered a “dress ring” from the store I bought it from because its a sapphire, not a diamond. As long as the metal you choose is durable (i.e. not sterling silver) I would say use anything you want as an e-ring, no matter how it is labelled in the store!

pugmummy87 :  any ring given as an engagement ring is an engagement ring, it’s not the ring itself, its style or its stone that define it’s meaning but the sentiment with which it was given and received.

I don’t understand what you mean by dress ring? Are you searching for “engagement ring” and you’re getting results that you don’t expect?

Any ring can be an engagement ring if you get engaged with it. Mine is silver and has onyx and ruby on it. My fiance’s is a band made out of tungsten carbide and has a sapphire in it. There are people on this site that get just bands, some that get diamonds, some that get gemstones, some that get pearls. It doesn’t matter what you have on your ring, it’s an engagement ring if you use it to symbolize that you are engaged.

Personally when I hear or see dress ring I think of CZ, glass or non genuine stones. 

But an engagement ring is just a ring, but given with the intention from the given to marry the receiver and a symbol of how those two people are committed to the relationship 

Would love to see what rings your looking at.

I’ve never heard the term dress ring until now. Is that the same as a cocktail ring? Regardless, any ring can be an engagement ring if given during a proposal πŸ™‚
