For me it would be almost any high set or complicated ring (halos etc). They look lovely but it would drive me mad. I have a very low set solitaire and it’s perfect – I love the simplicity and it doesn’t get in my way.

Big center stones! I wish I could pull them off , they look great on other people but too.fancy for me. Also princess cuts, too harsh for me but I’ve seen them on other bees & they look gorgeous.

Anything high set, since i am left handed. I chose a 3 stone over a solitaire partly for this reason. I also love love love pear halos, but the thought of teeny diamonds going all the way down the band and snagging on things was off putting. my ering has a plain shank and I love it.

Im not a big halo person but find myself drawn to them more and more thanks to the tiffany legacy with graduated side stones.  I know though, if I ever go to put one on I will think its “too much”.  I love sparkle but my fingers are small and thin it just wouldnt look right.  Im sure of it.

I love the look of a six pronged solitaire but I know that I wouldn’t like one if it wasn’t at least 2cts. Sounds bad, but I love a lot of finger coverage.

I also love pink stones (diamond, sapphire, morganite, moissy, etc) but I would be afraid someone would think it was just any old ring, not an engagement ring. I shouldn’t care, but I secretly do.

I always assumed I’d end up with a princess or Asscher cut because I love the look of them, but when trying on rings with DH before he proposed, we found they just didn’t suit me. It doesn’t stop me from still drooling over them, though!

For me, its intricate settings with tiny diamonds in it, like the halo rings that are popular now.  I just LOVE the way they look, but for me, I was scared that I’d be too rough on it as a daily wear ring and would be losing the small diamonds all the time.  Also, I would probably be obsessively cleaning it due to all the little areas where dust and grime could get in.  I have a very simple ring and I am already cleaning it constantly, and don’t even like to get it wet.  LOL

I love the way pave bands sparkle and set off the center stone, but I could never wear them.  I tried some on when we first went ring shopping.  they cut into my fingers and bothered me so bad!  they look so pretty though:)

I love marquise, oval, and emerald cuts- but they all look ridiculous on my finger. Round and pear are the only two shapes that look right!

Princess cuts.  i think they are beautiful, but they sit crooked like whoa on my ring finger.  

eternity bands.  look beautiful, tear the sides of my fingers up.

I like marquise in theory, but I have a marquise ring and I constantly jam in into my finger causing it to bleed.

Pave is beautiful, but the pave on my annniversary ring drives me mental.

Princess is beautiful, but looks plain strange on my hand.

Yellow diamonds/sapphires do not go with my skin tone at all, I don’t care. I still want several.

I really love the look of rose gold rings. They just seem to have a romantic, soft quality about them but they look horrible with my skin tone.

I think three stone rings are beautiful but they look so stupid on my tiny hands.

@lovekiss:  +1 same with halos! I loved them, in theory, but hated them on my finger. But maybe just the ones I tried on looked like flying saucers? LOL. Now I’m drooling over ovals, like @Heidibrooke’s

Everytime I see a rose gold ring, I fall in love, no joke. 😛 I also love the look of gemstones. But I am afraid my tastes wil change over time.
