Your rings are beautiful and I definitely agree with the PP that an engagement ring can be anything you want it to be. I also wanted something different. Mine is 18k rose gold with 1/2 carat of diamonds in the setting and I currently have a cz as the center stone.

fatima.o.snaap:  I, too, think your ring is very beautiful and i have NEVER seen purple diamond a before! Simply stunning! Here is mine, a peach sapphire set in rose gold. Sorry it’s just a side view. This is the only shot i happened to have saved on my phone from the pics I sent our jeweler as we try to design a marching band.

fatima.o.snaap:  I love nontraditional erings!

Mine is a claddagh, which used to be a very traditional engagement ring, but not so much these days, at least in the US where I am. I see a lot of people who wear them, but not as engagement rings. I really liked that the ring itself had its own meaning of love, loyalty and friendship. I also chose a ruby instead of a diamond. Honestly, I’ve never gotten a negative comment, but that’s probably because I really don’t get many comments at all. I don’t flaunt being engaged and I didn’t post it on facebook, so most people just don’t even notice it, which is fine by me.

fatima.o.snaap:  That’s really nice. 

I have a flower cluster and have had some comment online about the shape of it; people saying that they don’t like flower looking rings. I love it and would never want anything else, but it still hurts when people say it’s not elegant.

tolkenbee: Flower rings are very traditional. One of my grandmas has one for her engagement ring, 60 years ago, and they bought it secondhand!

Taiki:  I’d love to see her ring 🙂

I think they might have been quite popular some decades ago, and there are definitely a lot of antique clusters. But nowadays people don’t seem to consider them that classic and traditional, at least not judged by the comments I’ve seen and gotten online, and for some reason they seem to have fallen out of favour. I still think they’re beautiful though 🙂
