I think that in today’s world you can have what ever you want.  I personally love the traditional engagement ring, and you can have an eternity for your wedding band or anniversary ring later, that way you have both.

I think it’s a lovely idea if you have a job/lifestyle where a big rock will get in the way. You can always get your 2 carat halo stunner as an anniversary band when/if your lifestyle changes to suit it.

I am of the opinion that if a ring is given alongside the question of “will you marry me?” or given to  signify a commitment to get married (and plan a wedding, so above the commitment of just a promise ring) then it is an engagement ring. Regardless of what stones it has, what it looks like or what it is made of!

iamdre:  I think it’s a great idea! If you love the style, then get it! I think it looks stunning. Both pics you posted as inspiration are as gorgeous as any traditional ering. Emerald and asscher cuts are some of my favorites. The pink diamonds just make me say “Wow”! I would also say a 2ct is not a piece I would turn down if it came my way! Maybe you could have both at some point? One style for each hand?

This is what I chose to do! I think it’s a great idea and I love it. I work in a library so my ring never gets caught on things. In My Humble Opinion its understanded but elegant!

iamdre:  I think it’s a wonderful idea and you should go for it! I thought the same thing when we were first going to get engaged. There was this one 3 stone round bezel set ring (like pic below) that was really low set but it looked more like an anniversary ring, so I didn’t get it. I really regretted it later and even re-set my diamond solitaire into a bezel because it’s the style I initially wanted. Congrats! Get what is right for you and don’t worry about what anybody else thinks!

Fabulous idea! I adore the look of a wider band with two skinny ones on the side, elegant but still super blingy! There are days I crave the simplicity of that look and freedom from snagging. Hoping to get a wider eternity band with a couple super skinny stackers next year!

I have a 1.09 carat shared prong band, .09 points and 11 diamonds.  It’s 3mm.  Photo below.  Anything bigger looked too big on my hand.  I am also tossing up whether to get a solitare engagement ring and a thin rose gold band.  There are too many great options. I love the emerald cut eternity’s but they seem to be really pricey.  If you do come across one that is reasonable, please let me know becuase i think they look exquisite.
