Mr. S asked me to go look at rings with him tomorrow! I have ideas for what I like, but he wants to make sure of my size and what I like “for future reference”. I got a manicure last night in anticipation of getting to try on some pretties, haha.
What I think I like:
– Unique shapes (i.e. oval or pear with a halo, oval with half moon side stones)
– My mom has a marquis ering with baguette side stones that will eventually go to me, so I don’t want the same shape for my ering.
– Rose gold or mixed metals (i.e. white gold band with rose gold halo)
– Delicate bands and halos (i.e. thinner)
I’m open to other unique ideas, although I’m fairly positive that I want something other than a round or emerald cut – just not my personal style. My size is usually between 4.5-5 depending on the width of the band. We have looked at carat charts and I think we are leaning for between .75-1.5 carat center stone. I have long, thin fingers, so I don’t need a 2 carat to make a big impact on my finger.
Bees, please share some inspiration with me! Either your ring, or one you think fits what I like. I need pretty pictures to get ideas and get me through the anticipation today!!

I got an emerald cut, but oval was my second choice. Super classy.

Edit: KeeganWynne! I sure hope she doesn’t mind me throwing her name out there.

OO how fun! I just did a little window shopping last weekend and got sized! Im a 4.5. I tried on a 1.0 carat center with nice quality but didnt wow me. then I tried a .85 flawless my heart stopped! .85 on the 4.5 finger I loved it! it had more inpact then the 1 carat! (ps I wish I could have taken pictures but we were in provincetown MA in alot of boutiques they said no because of there unique designes) but this is my ring crush and what I hope Boyfriend or Best Friend ordered but Im in the dark!
