Was the square cut the cut you liked the best?  Do you still like aquamarine the best as a stone? 

It’s a really nice ring but when I first opened your post I wasn’t sure about the square cut, but then when I go back to look to try and figure out why but it’s growing on me. 

In conclusion, I’m zero help and confused too.

Maybe it’s good that you’re open, then you won’t have your heart set on just one thing and if it’s not it be dissapointed.  The only thing I’d worry about with a darker stone, like a ruby, would be that it wouldn’t match with some of my outfits.  But I’m not one to talk because my engagement ring is a big red stone we found on the beach and I wear it with whatever, matching or not.  I think that size looks quite nice for your hand.  And the squares growing on me.  I think part of it is the sales lady has a square ring and the edges are really pointy, and I don’t like that kind of square.

Oh and I really like the sparkly band.  The width looks good.  You want a thinner band?

I think the fact you are so open to different stones and styles is great! Chances are, your openness will mean you will love what you get even more! I am too picky and the fact my SO doesn’t want me involved with picking anything is frusterating. I think a classic look with a different/colorful stone may satisfy what you are looking for… whaddaya think? The good news is, anything you don’t get in your e-ring could make a nice anniversary ring/birthday/christmas present, etc. I love the idea of a nice aquamarine, ruby, or sapphire. Since, I tend to not take off rings I would be concerned with durability- especially with all those adorable kids! Can I borrow them to convince my boyfriend to propose?

I felt like you too, I was looking at so many different styles online (not realizing Fiance was ring shopping by himself!) and I just had no clue… then he surprised me with mine, and I love it… so I bet that will happen to you!  & kids are too cute.

@crebre- That happened to me too!!! When I was looking online at rings, I was checking out 2-3 carat rings and then when I tried on that size, it looked ridiculous on my hand lol. I love the way big rocks look on other people but it overwhelms my hand too much. So we ended up looking at .85-1.10 carats and they were perfect! That is so exciting for the progress!!!

Your due date is getting closer lol Last time I checked you thought it wasnt gonna be till your birthday, now its march!! eeeee!
