taylor4865:  I have a white gold engagement ring and a rose gold right hand ring, and I love them both so I’m no help with that, sorry! I’m sure whatever you choose will be beautiful. Here’s my 6 prong solitaire mossy OEC:

sparklesauce:  Awe thanks! So sweet of you to say. The band is 2 mm and the stone weight is .93, measurements are 6.33×6.38×3.79. 🙂

LOVE my solitaire. White gold, 6 prong setting, 1/3 ct. 

I really love how simple it is–I’m not much of a jewelry gal, but I can’t resist my ring’s sparkle. It’s so perfect 😀 

I chose white gold because I feel like it’s so classic and most of the jewelry I -do- wear is white rather than yellow. 

One of my close friends has been trying to decide between rose gold and white gold for her e-ring (she ended up letting her future fiancee choose, and it’ll arrive in the next few weeks!!) My advice to her was that rose gold might be a fad, but it’s popular for a reason. 

Good luck with your ring endeavors!

wrkbrk:  Thank you ☺️. I love rose gold! It was custom made by Amora gems.com but was based off a James Allen design. There was a few bits I wanted to change and edit from it. It’s 2.7mm and is 14k rose gold.

I have mine set in platinum, which is harder to break but easier to bend than gold. I work with my hands a lot, so the main problem I’ve incurred is having to make sure my prongs stay set. I’ve had to tighten my main stone twice and my band once within the past year. It wasn’t dangerously loose, just moving a bit but I’m protective. That being said, your job/lifestyle may factor into what setting you’d like. I love how a micropave band looks, but it is certainly more stones to keep track of. However, if you’re not very active with your hands and banging them around on things, it shouldn’t be a huge concern. Good luck!

Classic and elegant. These will withstand the test of time. [content moderated for criticizing others’ choices]

CinqueTerre:  Lovely ring but remeber the wedding band is placed on the finger first, not the engagment ring.

suzymuffin25:  Actually, I know several women who wear the band first. Some feel like the band is easy to replace from a monetary standpoint, but the engagement ring is much costlier. She can wear it however she wants.

suzymuffin25:  Actually it’s not my wedding ring, it’s my right hand ring so… 🙂

I’m with you though, I will wear my wedding band and my engagement ring in that order when I do get married. However, many women wear it the other way, it’s simply a matter of taste.

No, just proper ring etiquette. Wedding band is placed first on the finger closest to the body.
