I didn’t know there was such a thing until now. How would you feel if you were proposed to and given one? Or how would you react if a friend tells you she got engaged and showed you a stoneless engagement ring? It’s so new to me 🙂

@summerSmile: an engagement ring is an engagement ring no matter what it looks like. It’s something to be celebrated, no stone necessary.

I think that as long as the recipient likes the ring, then it’s all good. I love the gold love knot band, and actually have it in silver, although it wasn’t my engagement ring.

I think it’s fine if the recipient is on board with it. If I was expecting a diamond (and we shopped for them) and then I got a plain band, I might be disappointed unless I knew it was a possibility or we had discussed it. But that’s just me–I feel that an engagement ring is a symbol of a relationship as well as a piece of jewelry I have to wear forever so I want to like it.

My aunt is from Germany and didn’t want a stone in her ring, because in Europe it’s quite common to have a stoneless ring. I wanted a stone, but I wouldn’t think think less of someone who wanted a stoneless ring (:

As long as it wasn’t something that blind-sighted an unsuspecting recipient, I see nothing wrong with it.

I asked my SO for a stoneless band. I wanted something simple that I can wear to work everyday and not risk damaging.

My husband proposed to me with a band from my great grandmother. I do have a diamond engagement ring now but sometimes I wear it when the mood strikes – I did this even before we were married. We got my ring custom made since the diamonds were heirloom diamonds, and I had a few different stand in options to wear while waiting. Overwhelmingly I would reach for the plain band as opposed to a borrowed ring from my mom or another stone ring that I own. I don’t do it as often now because I know my husband likes to see the ring that he gave me with his grandmother’s diamond, but my stoneless band is special to me.

I think there is something elegant about a plain band with no stone. Sometimes I just wear a plain band because I like the look of it. I wouldnt complain if he proposed without a stone although I wouldnt mind having a little more sparkle (of any gem) to change it up some.

If we discussed the desire of having a stoneless e-ring before or if I somehow let it known that I prefer that sort, it would be fine having such. Above all, it depends on the tastes of the recipient. If she loves such a ring, be very happy for her since to her, it is extremely special. We must respect her wishes.

@summerSmile: A couple of my cousins have stoneless engagement rings. I think it’s great if it’s what makes sense for the couples. My cousins are simple gals who didn’t want a stone.

My dream ring is stoneless. My love hadn’t heard of them either but once we went and saw it in person and it was on my hand he agreed that it is just the most perfect thing for me and keeps talking about how proud he’ll be to have me wear it. I am not a plain or simple girl as people often suggest about no stone e-ring wearers and I love my jewerly too! I wanted no stone for a number of reasons but at the end of the day there isn’t a ring that makes me smile like it does.

@summerSmile: I like this stone less ring from Anna Sheffield
And I’m a gem stone girl (any and all, I need sparkle/color ), I just adore them so I would be a little bummed if my e ring didn’t have any, but as long as it’s not plain i wouldn’t be against it.
