For me personally, I really want something classic. My best friend’s ring is her grandmother’s and I love love love the idea of a family ring/stone/style, however my mother and grandmother both got rings that were trendy at the time and are really dated looking now. I was really disappointed because I would have loved to use a piece from them. So for me personally I want something maybe more “simple” like a round cut with just a thin diamond band so I could give it to my daughter or granddaughter one day.

there’s nothing like trying them on to know. what you think you like might not be what you really like.

I had just about made up my mind when we started looking; but i have a simple solitaire and have never worn anything but white gold (even when it was unpopular)

I always have trouble making up my mind. When first looking at rings I went back and forth a lot on cut and band style.

What really helped me decide what i wanted/liked was spending a lot of time on Pricescope forums. I learned a lot about diamonds, and was exposed to some great vendors. We ended up deciding on an August Vintage Cushion from Good Old Gold. I would have never learned about this cut if it weren’t for Pricescope!

definitely agree theres nothing like trying them on! I just finally tried on the ring I’ve been eyeing on the internet for eternity it feels like… a couple months… but the jewlery store is an hour and a half from me (that one is) and so it took a while for me to get up there. I’m super glad I went because it definitely gave me a different perspective…I still loved it and I ended up picking it in the end… but it made me want to look at other styles at first becuase I wondered if the band was too much because I really like having emphasis on the diamond. I dont like halo settings personally because to me its just trying to make the big diamond look better, and I just didn’t really care for it. I also didn’t like the solitares though. So I’m extremely happy that i chose the band I did. Nothing beats trying it on…

 

Happy hunting :]
