If ever a ring looked like an engagement ring, I would say that yours definitely falls into that category!

Don’t worry about how it was classified on the website… it’s a classic e-ring!

Congratulations on your engagement!

I’m getting a gold ring with a rough sapphire center stone.

Would it be considered an e-ring? In the most accepted sense, no.

Is it considered a wedding bend? Generally not.

But I’m wearing one ring to signify both. Because I say so. ๐Ÿ™‚



Your engagement, your ring, your rules.

Wow that ering is beautiful! Love the side detail. I second everything people are saying about your ring.  An ering can be anything you make it to be.  But also to answer your question, I think your ring does look like an engagement ring.  The buckle one would look like a fashio ring, but your ring definitely looks like an engagement ring ๐Ÿ™‚

@Soon2bMrsVk:  Some people have been brainwashed in the diamonds are the only way to go as an engagement ring. When you look at history, 1477:In one of the first recorded uses of a diamond engagement ring, Archduke Maximilian of Austria proposes to Mary of Burgundy with a ring that is set with thin, flat pieces of diamonds in the shape of an “M.”

That was the first recorded “engagement diamond ring”, however even back then they would give engagement necklaces, bracelets, etc. It wasn’t until the diamond industry decided to do an insane marketing campaign that showing love or a promise of eternal love and commitment was with a diamond. I think you should get whatever ring you want. Some people have rings in which don’t even have any stones and yes, that was their engagement rings. Whatever category they placed it in, that is just a marketing point of view.

Looks like an e-ring to me.  Especially since it’ll be on your left ring finger.

Oomph what a stunner!! I think thatd make a gorgeous ering!

Not to mention an ering is what you make of it. You could have a haribo ring (gummy candy) and, as long as you consider it an ering, then it is one!!

Such a beautiful engagement ring!! I agree with many of the other bees. An engagement ring is whatever you want it to be. If you want to stay within more traditional means of e-rings, I think yours fits right in. Totally looks bridal. I also have a cluster e-ring, which was sold under that category at Zales/Peoples, still the sales consultant thought an e-ring had to have a large center diamond. Haha, I much prefer smaller stones arranged in a complex arrangement. So to each their own opinions ๐Ÿ˜‰

@Soon2bMrsVk:  There’s no guarantee that the person who is in charge of the company’s website knows ANYTHING about jewelry, LOL, so it could easily be that he/she put it under the wrong category. If the sales person assumed it was an engagement ring, so will everyone else. It IS an engagement ring. (And it’s gorgeous! I am tempted to go see if our local store has one so I can see it in person!)

It looks very much like what most would envision a “traditional” engagement rings looks like.  It’s gorgeous though and you love it, so wear it in good health!

I have a cluster ring, too.  And I think mine is fabulous.  We got it for a steal, it’s star shaped, it’s everything that makes us really us, since I think my Fiance was a cosmonaut in a past life.  Clusters really, really sparkle, too.


Wear your ring with pride and rock it.  Its yours, and if you receive it with a proposal of marriage, then it is indeed an engagement ring.  And if anyone disagrees, then they’re the one in the wrong.

It’s a beautiful ring! And as others have said, if it’s given with the promise of marriage, it is an engagement ring. 


The reason it wasn’t in the “traditional” ering section is because as others stated – marketing. They want to sell the big, solitaire diamonds ($$$$) to unsuspecting buyers, and probably play on the emotions & lack of knowledge/awareness some guys have when shopping. They come in, ask to see engagement rings, so bam, they can pull out the trays of rings categorized as such (or select that e-ring button on a website). It takes an out-of-the-box, innovative buyer to realize that there are more options out there than what is first presented. 


Good on you & your Fiance for snagging a gorgeous ring at a steal to represent your future together! Innovation pays off! 

The ring inspiring my custom design is also considered a “diamond fashion ring” but I don’t care … When its done and my stone is set in it, it is going to be one beautiful, unique, meaningful ering with far more creativity and meaning than anything I saw in the “engagement ring” trays/displays!
