I’ve been reading these posts for some time now, but today I finally have a reason to create my own post!
My boyfriend of 2 years and I live in different cities about 2 hours away from each other, so we only ever get to see each other on weekends. We have been talking marriage for quite some time now, and this afternoon when I was chatting to him on the phone, he told me he wants me to email him a few pics of ring styles I like, and then go and try a few on this weekend. He’s always maintained that he would like to surprise me with a ring, but would like to get a good idea ahead of time of what I like.
I’ve honestly spent every second since he told me that scouring the internet and looking at rings. It’s become pretty clear that I’m in love with oval cuts. I just can’t decide if I prefer a halo or solitaire style, but I do know I would like some pave on the band.
I have no idea what carat size I’d be looking at, as I’m leaving that entirely up to him. I really don’t care one way or the other, because I just want to be engaged to the love of my life and a pretty ring is just the cherry on top.
If you have an oval cut engagement ring, could you please post a pic?
Here are a couple pics of styles I’ve fallen pretty hard for:
