I think engagement rings/wedding sets are an exception to the jewelry formality thing. I have never given a second thought to an ornate set on someone who dresses casually. Now, if you’re all decked out with typically formal jewelry but wearing a track suit, I find that odd. But ornate wedding sets go with anything. It’s all about what you love and would wear.

I agree with the other poster, engagement rings don’t need to match your style our outfit.  I don’t think I would even notice if someone was dresses casually and had a really extra ring.  You can always leave it at home if you are just nipping out to the shop on a sunday morning for example.

Heidi Gibson rings are beautiful, I say go for it!

My wedding set (when I can actually wear it! Lol can’t wear my band til June) is very formal/fancy looking (e-ring on its own isn’t but the band elevates the look a lot). And I will admit to having a similar thought of “will this be weird when I’m wearing jeans and a T-shirt?” But I think the others who have replied are right. E-rings/wedding sets are different and you should rock what you love!

I don’t think you should worry about whether your engagement ring goes with your casual lifestyle. Engagement rings, in my opinion, are exempt from being judged in comparison to everyday style. Are you just not supposed to wear jeans and a t-shirt when you get engaged or, when you do, go without your set? That doesn’t make any sense. 

Get what you want AND wear what you want. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I am super casual (I am literally in sweats on the couch after work) and I will have a fairly fancy, imo, engagement ring. I would never wear any of my other jewlery right now, but I echo the PPs above in that engagement ring/wedding set is different.

spendabuck85 :  I am mainly at home in leggings or sweats and I still rock my ring, which I consider more fancy. I feel like engagement rings just go with any style, all the time. Whether the ring is simple or super fancy. The rings you posted are gorgeous. If you love them, definitely get one and rock it, with your dress clothes and pajama pants too!!

spendabuck85 :  I actually love the look of a beautiful fancy e-ring with a plain t-shirt and jeans haha. But even if I didn’t, e-rings and wedding bands are more like status symbols than just fashion so it’s except from style rules.  Same as a devout Christian may wear a fine jewelry cross every day, regardless of the formality of the rest of their outfit.

Those rings are stunning.  If you love it, get it!

Also once your married, you can always have a plain wedding band for places like gym, or doing housework if you are concerned about your ring.

I have a Heidi Gibson ring, and I literally wear yoga pants and sneakers 50% of the time. I still wear my ring every day (albeit, I’ve only been engaged for a few weeks).

When I first showed my fiancé her instagram, he asked if it was something I could see myself wearing every day for the rest of my life, and I started thinking I should just go with a simple solitaire. However, I kept dreaming about the HG ring and I’m so happy he never listened to me when I showed him the “practical” rings!

Go with what makes your heart sing! Remember, you’ll be wearing this ring for the rest of your life— you should absolutely love it! ๐Ÿ™‚

Engagement rings and wedding rings go with anything. I wear pajamas but will wear my engagement ring haha. However, my mom only wears her nice jewelry when she goes somewhere nice. I think it is a matter of preference. Would you wanna wear it everyday? And i would wear them everyday they are gorgeous .you have great taste!

spendabuck85 :  Haha yeah, he actually tricked me! I snooped months before the proposal (I know, I know… I felt guilty immediately after doing it! :/) and found a ring receipt from a jeweler. My heart sank a little bit when I found out it wasn’t from Heidi Gibson. However, I came to terms with it and convinced myself that a solitaire was going to be better for me. Hahaha

Turns out, he just bought that original ring for the diamond (he got a great deal on it!) and had it reset by Heidi.

He also told me after the proposal that he knew I snooped because I told my best friend (who was in on his plans all along!) and she told him. He said he wanted me to suffer a few months of thinking I didn’t get my dream ring to serve as punishment for snooping. Hahah serves me right!

Let us know what you end up choosing! ๐Ÿ™‚
