My girldfriend is a very modest women. One of six kids she isn’t the type to flaunt super flashy items and is happy to go thrifting. She is also the type to wear nice dresses and sweaters and get her hair all pretty. Simple, but cute is a good way to describe her. She currently wears a ring with a small emerald in the center with 2 white side stones, probably not diamonds, with a slight twited gold setting.
What I know: She likes gold rings, not silver/platnum. She isn’t into flashy rings or rings with tons of jewles all over the place (pave). Does not like halos.
My thoughts: My hunch is either a simple solitaire ring with a nice diamond OR some vintage inspired ring that isn’t flashy, gaudy, or over the top. Something unique, classy, cute/petite.
I’ve done some research myself but I would love to see what you ladies who dive deep into this world come up with. I would love to answer any questions if it would help! =D

I love this ring because of the vintage inspired band. It’s beautiful and unique without being too flashy.

She sounds like a solitaire girl to me! 6 prong not 4. 😊 this setting: simple but cute…

Are you sure she wants a diamond? She almost sounds like a gemstone type? Opals came to mind. Maybe she loves emeralds. I have no idea but I think this is pretty!!
Oops it’s a halo. But it’s a unique halo! Still pretty

I’d say look for a vintage piece with an old European cut diamond

I feel like I could be described very similar to your girlfriend. I’m in LOVE with my ring and it’s very much what you have described as well. Simple and classic but slightly unique side stones to make it not like everyone else’s. There are three very small and cute diamonds on either side of the center diamond.

that is the exact ring my bf liked best. We went with something very close. It was important to me that what I got is his taste.

The description of your girlfriend really resonates with me, and I feel like we have similar taste.
I would suggest either a solitaire (6 prong) or a 3-stone ring. Both are simple, timeless, and classy. Because they are easily found, you can find a large variation on them, such as diamond (or whatever stone you choose to go with, it will look lovely in these two settings) size, metal colors, shape of stone, etc.

omg I love Victor Canera! I just got my ring reset into a VC halo with matching wedding band and the quality and delicacy is amazing! That solitaire setting is gorgeous as well.

A solitaire would probably be best. It is classy and she can pick whatever style wedding band she wants to go with it.
