I wanted a .5 carat very low set diamond and ended up with a four prong set 1.2 carat beauty. You ring is stunning by the way πŸ™‚

Happened to me too!

I always thought I wanted a cushion halo. I told Fiance this and he looked at them but didn’t like them. I also only expected to get a .5-.8 carat.

He chose me a 1 carat brilliant solitare with 3 cluster side stones on either side of the main stone. He even got it custom made because he wanted a tapered band.

It’s beautiful. Perfect. I wouldn’t trade it for any other style! He did good, I have to confess I was very pleasantly surprised πŸ™‚

Your ring is beautiful!! And, with the four-prong setting, you can have the best of both worlds, since the diamond will look square from some angles. (I wanted and have four prongs, too.)

So very pretty!

I thought for years I wanted an Asscher cut ring – diamond, Asha, whatever we could come up with, I wanted THAT CUT, as big as we could reasonably afford and set in a plain white gold band. Then when my grandma passed, my grandpa asked if my boyfriend and I would like her diamond, which is a classic round. I always thought rounds were bo-ring. But I got a little sentimental and we accepted and now I have the most perfect ring with my grandma’s stone set in a band with side stones and engraving that my now-fiance picked on his own without my input. I could not have chosen it better and wouldn’t trade it for anything. It’s amazing.

CONGRATS to you! And yay for classic round diamonds!

Happened to me too πŸ™‚

Had I seen the stock photo of my ring, I probably wouldn’t have given it a second glance, and it’s not what I thought I wanted but in real life it is just right. Can’t imagine wearing anything else. I had also asked for a smaller carat size, as I have small hands and usually do not wear much jewelry. My partner did not comply, though it is understandable that he wanted to purchase something he was proud of. So I am still getting used to the size, since it’s not what I would have picked out for myself but of course the ring is so lovely and I feel so lucky to be wearing it.

@blondebeachbride:  Very beautiful, and of course it is so classic that you will love it forever!

I love it! My ring is vintagey too.

I really wanted a marquise but every setting I had ever seen was very matronly, and looked like ‘old-lady’ jewelry for lack of a better phrase so I decided on a halo. I was so shocked when he pulled out the MOST BEAUTIFUL marquise ring I have ever seen, it’s absolutely beautiful and I would have never found it for myself because I had long ago given up and focused on round halo settings (which I love also). Here is a photo, marquise with 3 round diamonds and 2 on the band on either side. Don’t you love it when our guys can prove they know us better than we know ourselves?

When we went to try rings in November, i told the sales lady i wanted a specific ring (which i had on) only with a diamond instead of a saphire.

“Basically i want this emerald with the trillium side stones” me

“Why?” – sales lady

“Because i love this ring” 

“Noo no no no no. You love THAT ring.  This is your engagement ring.  Its different.  You are going to love it no matter what because HE gave it to you and it means HE wants to be with you forever.  Come with me, lets figure this out”

Needless to say i ended up with a princess channel setting, and later decided i love princess or asscher pave settings. LOL but i’m going to love the ring because he went out and spent the time to get it for me.  And thats the important part.
