Hi everyone, I will try and keep this short, but I need advice. Yesterday out of the blue my husband brings me to a jewelry store and let’s me pick an “upgrade “. I was not expecting it at all and was really excited. The e-ring I have now is a round brilliant .23 ct twt which I originally picked and still love, I plan on putting it away for my daughter. Anyway, I kinda fell in love with two rings and I don’t know if I picked the right one. The first one was a pear shape solitaire. 52ct twt. I have always wanted a pear shape diamond. Second ring was a half carat total weight 3 stone round brilliant ring. The diamonds in the 3 stone were amazing and sparkled like no one’s business. ..even out of the fancy jewelry store lights. So, here am I in this store literally sweating because I don’t know which one. ..lol. After about half an hour I finally picked the pear solitaire. Since we left I have been having second thoughts. ..ugh. I didn’t pick the 3 stone because I felt it was too similar to what I already have, but why am I thinking I should have picked it? I don’t have pictures of the pear because it’s being sized and won’t be ready till Thursday. Any advice would be appreciated, sorry this was so long.

Go with the one you really love. If you really love the 3stone one than see if you can get that one. If you really love the pear than keep that. A bunch of strangers on the internet can’t tell you which ring to get.

I mean, none of us can tell you if you picked the “wrong one” — it’s all a matter of your style. Go with your gut.

What is your gut telling you? You obviously love the pear solitaire or you wouldn’t have chose it. Always go with your first instinct, as they say that is typically the correct answer.

You cannot go wrong with the pear… you’ll see !

Thank you! Yeah, while I really liked the three stone, I am worried in the long run I would end up regretting not getting the pear. Thanks again 🙂

I love pears. That was my runner up pick. I dont know why but I dont care for 3 stones, seems less engagment more band to me. Can’t wait for pictures. Also I think you made the right choice since you have always loved pears. I think you re having doubts because it surprised you so much to fall for another/so different but not necessarily more.

I realize that my opinion doesn’t really help you to know if you made the right decision for you, but I love, love, LOVE pears. They are gorgeous, and if I were to choose again, I would probably go with one. I am not as big a fan of three stone rings (though they are still beautiful, of course).

I would have picked a solitaire pear over a 3 stone also :)! I think you made a good decision!

If you chose the pear, it’s probably because that’s what your gut was telling you. If it makes you feel better, tell yourself that you can always get a cheap but pretty Berricle 3-stone to wear once in a while if you want to mix it up!

megan331979: Like PPs said, you can’t go wrong if you go with your first instinct (or “gut” reaction). It sounds like you love the pear very much, and that you’ve always dreamed of getting a pear. So it seems like you made a good choice, overall. (With that said, the 3-stone would also be a good choice. The important thing is to go with what you love the most and picture yourself wearing.)
Maybe it feels more worrisome to you because your new ring isn’t officially on your finger yet because it’s getting sized. So, your brain is kicking into overdrive and overthinking the whole experience. Once that gorgeous pear is at home on your finger, I bet you will be over the moon and feel more sure that you made the right choice.

There’s no right or wrong. It’s all about what looks best on your hand. Personally I am not a fan of 3 stone rings, everyone’s taste is different.

I have a three stone and also love pears so I would totally feel your pain. I think if you had always wanted a pear then it’s definitely a safe bet to go with it but at the end of the day you really gotta go with what your heart says. If you can’t shake the 3 stone from your mind then maybe you should go exchange it.

sometimes you have to do something that forces your opinion. I like to flip a coin when i get indecisive like this because as soon as I flip it (or mentally flip it) I seem to know which side I want it to land on most. Same thing works if you ask some one else to choose for you, before they even say it you can just about decide which one you are hoping they will go for

Thank you everyone! Last night I was happy with the fact I went with the pear, then this morning I started to have second thoughts again :/ first world problems, right….I do appreciate all the advice and opinions though!
