I am torn.
I have always had a soft spot for emeralds, but, looking at this site, I feel that an oval cut could also be the cut for me, so classic and elegant, even though I didn’t feel anything for them before. They have definately grown on me. Funny how ones mind changes, huh.
I have always been set on a stone with edges, such as emeralds or princesses, since I thought that they look better on my fingers. And I do think that I prefer emeralds, if I had to choose between an emerald and a princess, at least for a wedding ring.
I have also felt that, for example, rounds didn’t look good on my finger. (again, no edges) I’m not sure what I think about that anymore, since I find them so pretty and sparkly, and even on myself now! Am I just used to seeing them on my finger after all ring”shopping”? Are they really not flattering on me, but I suddenly think that they look good only because I tried them on so many times?
I am very torn about all this, and I don’t know how to think at all. Like so many other girls out there. Feels good not being alone. 😉
I don’t know what my BF will get me for our engagement, I think he might get me a brilliant or a princess cut stone. When I tried to figure out what he is thinking, and brought the stones up, he said he thought I dodn’t like brilliants, and I said that I do. So maybe he will get me one of them, since he is very traditional and often likes the more classic styles.
I know this might sound strange for you US or UK bees, but in Sweden we have a little different thoughts and ideas of what an engagement ring or wedding ring is, and we are more free to do however we please, and my BF has this idea of giving me some kind of secret(I have nothing to say about it) solitair for our engagement, very much like the american way, as in Sweden the tradition is that the couple/the man, buys two plain bands (or one with diamonds for the woman and a plain for the man) as engagement rings, either as a surprise or the couple choses them together. And my BF thought that I, after he has surprised me with a solitair, will chose another solitair for the wedding myself! So that he gets to give me the moment of surprise, and so that I can chose the weddingring of my dreams. A weddingring in Sweden is often either a solitair, or a plain band, or a band with diamonds.
He’s idea is that I thereafter keep the engagement ring in a box, or have it as a extra-ring for when I like to swich style or something. Anyway, I just wanted to make you all understand why I will have two solitaires. This is completely his idea, and I am totally fine with it, sounds like a good deal for me!
I think that I might end up with a solitair emerald for our wedding, or a threestone emerald, cause these to styles suited me very well, but as you can see, I am so confused by all these gorgeous ringstyles. When did the oval get in the picture?! I really don’t know. I wen’t from dislikeing it to loving it.
Cushions are also so so so so so so lovely. I would love one like that as a engagement ring. But I thouhgt that maybe it would be best if he got me a brilliant, so that when I buy a emerald they won’t be the same style at all? Or ?
What would you do? I know that I can make hints for him about what I would like, so, what should I hint about ?! haha.
Would you care for the two to be different styles, or not? Ofc I won’t have two with the same shape! But would, for example an emerald and a cushion be too alike?
I think that since I have already talked alot about rings, he’s ideas has already been influenced with what I have said, so I want to clear things up about what styles I really like.. I just have to find out which ones these styles are.. Then it’s up to him to pick a gorgeous engagement ring for me 😉
And also, if I would go with the shape of an emerald, should I chose a emerald shaped, or a elongated radiant in the shape of a emerald? Heeeelp!
I get that it’s a bit unclear what I really what your opinions on, I don’t know myself either, please, just share your thoughts! 🙂
