@CorgiTales:  My story is much the same. In about 2003, halos were JUST starting to show up. My boyfriend of the time and I went to a jewelry store and I found a round-cut halo that I really loved.

Which, aside from the thickness of the band, is pretty close to the ring SO has purchased.

Thats so funny!! I went from the Novo to a more simple pave band and ended up with the Tiffany round solitaire with channel set square cuts on the side haha…Wonder what I will like in 3 years! πŸ™‚

LoL I was the one watching football and Fiance was the bored one over here.

I always wanted a 3-stone ring, roughly similar to this:

Fiance took it a step further with the pave band and I love it:

i’ve always wanted a plain brilliant cut solitaire

the halos with micropave all over look very nice too, i’d want something like that as a RHR

I always wanted the classic 6 prong Tiffany solitare on a plain band, until I saw Birks had this ring:

BIRKS BLUE® Classic Collection, Diamond Solitaire Engagement Ring in 18kt White Gold

It’s a 4 prong solitaire btw, also with a round diamond, so very similar to the Tiffany ring, but I LOVE the sapphire accent.

We ended up going to a custom jeweler and getting a ring very similar to the Birks one for the same price as the one we were considering at Birks, but were able to get a larger diamond (with our budget we could have done max .75 carats at Birks, my diamond has pretty much the same cut/colour/clarity as we would have bought at Birks but is 1.02 carats).

Here’s the ring I actually got by the way:

@pinkshoes:  Beautiful! (all of them!)

 

I also wanted the exact same round baguette stone ring you posted years and years ago and then I never really thought about it.  I just knew I wanted Platinum and I wasnt sure if I wanted round, princess … and Fiance and I never discussed it at all!  I got a platinum, round solitaire and I love it πŸ™‚

That’s so funny, OP- I have *always* wanted a white gold .5ct princess-cut solitaire. And, well… I’m in college lol.

That’s exactly what I got. πŸ˜‰ Albeit Fiance changed it up a little with some ‘surprise’ diamonds in the setting. πŸ˜‰

I never really thought about rings until my Fiance brought up the subject of getting married.  Knowing that I tend to walk in the opposite direction of what the “norm” is, I knew I didn’t want round.  I wanted something different, yet I wanted the ring to have some traditional qualities.  Originally I thought I wanted a halo, but then decided a solitare with micropave might be a nice way to weave in new ideas with traditional ones.  So, I told him square or rectangular shape, split shank and micropave and he did a bang-up job!  It even has some tiny milgrain which was a total bonus!! πŸ™‚

I started with a a rectangular lucida with trilliant sidestones. 

Then it evolved to a 3 stone emerald cut ring

From there we went to an emerald cut center, princess sides on a 3 sided pave shank

Back to trilliants but with a yellow radiant diamond

To my now cushion yellow diamond with trap step cut sides.

 

Yea I think I moved around a bit. lol
