hello bees! My SO and I know we are getting married but he wants to have the whole proposal with an actual ring. (We basically are already engaged we both just want the fanfare haha).
so I have no idea what style of ring I wanted so I surfed wish.com and found two styles I wanted to try out. I’m really falling in love with this style and now I think I know what I want. Just wondering what y’all think and if anyone else has done the same thing?
It was $3 and I can’t take them off haha

Those actually look pretty nice bee! You can’t go wrong with a six prong solitaire. I’ve bought some rings from wish that unfortunately all looked like crap so I never wore them.

I actually think it is a great idea to use inexpensive stand-ins to see whether a particular style is right for you. You can get an idea of whether you like the look, the size and the way the band goes with the ER before you spend the big bucks. I love them!

Have you tried any on in a brick and mortar store? If not, why? Why not just save yourself some time and a few bucks and try some on in a jewelry store?
It’s fun to try on different styles and to see what you like. And the sales person can always create a wishlist for you.
That way you will know immediately if you don’t care for something or it doesn’t look right on your hand and you don’t have to deal with returning it.

I think that’s an excellent idea!
I currently have a CZ and sterling silver set on from Kohl’s because my actual rings don’t fit (pregnancy) and we’re working on getting things redesigned too. My redesign doesn’t look anything like this set though 😛 but I like it!

sapphire27 : I never bought into wish but my curiosity got the best of me haha! I never thought I’d be a simple solitaire gal either but now I’m sure that’s what I want. I’ll save this one to wear when I don’t want to risk losing my real one :-).
wish is either crap or it surprises you. I feel like if the cz was in a better setting it would look really nice. I’m not a fan of the diamond business and neither is my boyfriend so I’ve grown fond of diamond alternatives haha.

That’s a good idea too! I always have anxiety about that type of thing even though I know it’s their job and they are probably more than happy to help me out. neverbeenstungbee :

I didn’t for my e-ring but I did for my wedding band! Bought a few different style cheapies and then returned them. It was suuuuper helpful!

Love this idea! Just spent $5 on Wish to get a couple rings that look like the ones i’m considering. Thanks! 😀

My husband proposed without a ring, so that I could pick my own. I bought several styles, and thought that I wanted a 6 prong solitaire, but then fell in love with a bezel-set solitaire, and found that it was the most comfortable, as well.
I also thought that I wanted an enternity ring, as my wedding band. After wearing several silver ones, of all sizes, I realized that they were not that comfortable, and I’d probably hate wearing it, so get something comfy.
Also, I noticed that my finger size was larger in the morning, and smaller, at night. So I bought different sized rings to see what’s my average, or most comfy size.

Yay!! Please show me when they get to you 🙂 I love being able to wear it everyday because now I truly know what I like for forever or well at least at the moment haha. baileybagels :

That’s a great idea! I like the look of the solitaire with 6 prongs and this set looks great on you. I do change my mind a lot so what I did was buy moissanite sets to have when my mood changes….I have a 1.75ct emerald, 2ct cushion, 2.10ct oval, and 1ct square moissy sets….my diamond is a 1ct princess cut so when I want larger or a different shape I have them! And theyre in yellow, rose, and white gold so they’re all different. So kinda the same but not lol
im glad you found a set you love! Congrats!!
