Have you considered marquee? They look bigger than their size and are more classique, remeber you will wear the ring a ling time.

A friend of mine has a heart ering, its nice but quite little girly, which is ok now while she is in her 20s, she said people dont always make the kindest comments.

A friend of mine has a heart shaped diamond. When she was first engaged and showing the ring around, she told me that she feels like a 12 year old should be wearing it. She would say that Fiance tried so hard to find the perfect ring and she appreciated the effort. I have to say it looks cute right now, but I don’t think it looks sophisticated on a non-sorority aged woman.

Just my experience, sorry if it offends anyone.

If you’re not sold on a more popular shape AND not sold on the heart-shape, have you considered looking into a more unique-setting for a round or princess?  There are soooo many ways to make a ring your own these days, the options are really endless.  Plus, with a 1/2 carat there are a LOT of setting options with side/halo/additional stones (diamond or otherwise) that can make it reflect you more.

I have a heart shape & I LOVE it.

I tried on single stone rings of all sizes and I just wasn’t grabbed by them… as soon as I put on my ring I just loved it.

You may think it’s babyish or whatever but it’s all personal choice.

Here is mine:, it’s a crappy iPhone picture, which does it no justice

I have a heart shaped diamond, it’s a yellow gold band with a simple solitaire heart shaped diamond. I love it so much, it doesn’t look cute or childish and I get complemented on how beautiful and unusual it is all the time 🙂

YAY!!!  I hardly ever get to show off my heart-shaped beauty!  While it may be “young looking” to some, it can be quite lovely to others.  I cannot imagine ever being ashamed of my ring just because it’s shape is not conventional.  I will love it forever because Fiance gave it to me.

@VegasSukie:  Gorgeous! Yay, our rings our quite similar! My picture is terrible, it doesn’t really look that flat in real like, it’s just a crappy iphone 3 picture. I love the sparkle that the fancy cuts have, my diamond looks like it has fire in it, I look at it A LOT.

This may sound silly and simple, but how about living with a temporary ring on that finger? Perhaps going out and buying a cheap-ish sterling silver heart ring and see if you like wearing it all the time.

Since your last post yesterday, it seems you’re really on the fence and worried about this. This may sound…heartless (ha, no pun intended), but if you grow old of your ring years down the line, you don’t have to wear it. Your Fiance (then husband) could get you an upgrade for an anniversary.

I think your question has to be rephrased, since you’ve gotten lots of positive responses to heart-shaped engagment rings.

You probably should now be asking: For those who have a non-heart-shaped ring, but wanted a heart-shaped ring, do you regret your choice?

@aussiebee:  I actually thought the same thing (that our rings look similar) when I saw yours!  It’s really lovely!

@JustLove25:  I don’t want to sound out of line, but I don’t see why your Fiance has to like the ring. I mean, it’s not on his finger. The point of ring shopping, if you’re included in the process, is to find a ring you like. Did you actually like any of the rings you tried on? If so, then your Fiance should want you to be happy and go with what you like. Sorry, but it seems this means something to you, and I’d hate for you to not chose a ring because your Fiance does’t like it. An engagement ring is for an individual and that individual is you. You both can get picky over wedding bands, if you want them to match, but an engagement ring is for you and a reflection of what you want and desire, and your Fiance should honor that.
