Anything with no real center stone and a billion tiny stones arranged in multiple halos and sidestones to make the ring look huge.

I’ve seen one and… no thank you. I love my solitaire.

A composite ring. I *might* have had a few scary dreams about this back when I was waiting.

I wouldn’t want a ring in yellow gold or with a really thick band. Just not my style.

My ring will be custom made because I was so paranoid about getting a ring I wouldn’t be crazy about. Here she is: A ring I would hate to get would be a huge center stone with wide bands and lots of other stones. Eeek.

Illusion setting, channel set, anything with 10,000 diamonds or a lot of metal. I love a clean looking halo and bezels, and I’m even warming up to solitaires. Low maintenance and not too busy.

It’s funny how everyone has such different taste! When we were talking about rings, I gave him a lot of “DO NOT WANT”s. Looking back, I was pretty new to the whole ring thing and I like a lot of the things that I thought were hideous back then. 

I said no bulky rings, which included everything from thick bands to halos and cushion cuts (the latter two I love now!)

No bezel set rings, which I also love now

No solitaires (still not a fan of those)

No round diamonds (what do you know, my e-ring has only round diamonds and I think they’re perfect!)

But as of right now, I think the only thing I wouldn’t like is a ring with a big chunky band that takes up my whole finger. The band on my ring is very slender and I definitely like it that way!

No marquise, no princess, no losing the center stone in a million tiny diamonds all over the place, and no overpowering thick band (like below)

@mrssoontobeh:  Pretty much this.

i am not a fan of square rings- so no princess, emerald, radiant, or any of the other square cuts I’m forgetting right now. 

I also am not a fan of the three stone rings. 

And at this point, I’m not a huge fan of clear diamonds (I just wrote a thread about this last night lol), and I really want a champagne diamond ring.

I would never want anything in rose or yellow gold. Also, I would never want a pink stone, or anything in a pear, emerald, oval or marquise cut. Just not my style at all.

I hate anything with a thick band, heart shapped, or assymetrical. I hope I didn’t offend anyone! Another foe of mine ius the cluster ring.

I wouldn’t want something too flashy or chunky because I have small fingers. I’ve seen them look terrific on other, just not me. I’m a fairly plain person. Some engraving would be nice though.

My “no”s & reasons were:

slender band- breaks/bends too easily

white gold- didn’t want the rhodium

prongs- didn’t want anything snagging or breaking. I’ve seen too many girls damage their prong settings.

pave- didn’t want to have to babysit anything delicate.

mall store- not that there is anything wrong with the big box stores, necessarily, but we preferred the custom made route- no overhead to pay was a plus.
