    The site hasn’t changed what I want in an ering, but it has influenced other things. It reinforced what I thought I want in an ering. I loved emerald cuts before joining, but hadn’t seen any IRL, so all the emerald love boards really gave me a better idea and now I know I made the right choice. 
    It also showed me how even cuts/styles that I didn’t think I would like could be beautiful as well. I wasn’t a fan of pear cut, marquise cut, or cluster rings, but having seen some really beautiful ones here, it made me realize that any cut/style can be absolutely stunning!
    One other thing was that it opened my eyes to diamond alternatives! I always thought that I needed a 8k or more diamond to get the look I want, which my SO isn’t really comfortable with. This site has so many other examples of what I could get other than a diamond, like a mossy, an asha, or a white sapphire (which is where I’m leaning now)!

    I voted “prefer a different color gold” but really what its influenced more is the color diamond I want, I never realized until the bee that you could get a warmer stone that wasn’t a fancy yellow, I adore k-m and really all through Z but the K-M range looks antique & I’ve just fallen for them 🙂 my SO & I are custom designing my ring with a K-M stone. The bee has reinforced my love of rose gold though, which is what my set is going to be:)

    No, it hasn’t changed my opinion.  I still don’t like colorless diamonds and gemstones, and I still love settings that are extremely (not a tweaked standard setting) unique.
