Does anyone have or know anyone that has an engagement ring from the Vera Wang collection at Zales? Namely, the one I’ve had my eye on is the ring with the twisted bands. Post pics if you have it! I’m dying to see what it looks like on an actual finger!

Here’s my Vera Wang ring! 🙂 It doesn’t have the twisted band, but I thought you might still be interested in seeing it. Maybe not… maybe I just like showing it off. lol 😉

I went into Zales with the thought that we were going to upgrade my wedding set to a gorgeous VW set I had been drooling over online…we got in there and I tried it on and it just didn’t give me the same feeling that I had when I looked at it online, so I realized it just wasn’t going to be the ring for me. I wanted butterflies and excitement and I just got “oh, that looks really sparkly.” I wish I would have gotten a picture of it on my finger! =/
Anywaaayyyyy, I don’t have one obviously (I chose a sort-of similar set that the jeweler placed on my finger when I realized the VW wasn’t it), but I do have to say that they really are beautiful. Very, very sparkly, which is what thew me, I think? Crazy, right? But the little diamonds were so overpowering that I found it hard to even focus on or find the main diamond in the midst of being blinded and the sapphires looked more like shallow chips than actual gemstones, I think.
The only other con I can think of (if you can even call being “overly sparkly” a con???) is that they are overpriced for their size. The ring I wanted had a .5 ct center stone, but I ended up with a larger ring (.79 ct center stone with a halo and larger sapphire side stones) for barely more. With the sale they had going on and the military discount we got, it ended up being almost exactly the same price as the VW set (with the same diamond cut, clarity and color, just different size).
This is the ring I tried on:
I’m not trying to sway you or even say bad things about the rings, bc they are really stunning and to be honest, if someone would have said this to me before I tried it on, I would have been like HAH, yeah right (I mean, I was OBSESSED. This ring set was my phone background lol). It’s just that Zales actually has a lot of similar styles to the VW in their store that might have bigger stones, etc. for a smaller price.
Happy ring hunting. I hope you get the set of your dreams!

MDC Diamonds and a seller on ebay both make replicas of these rings, in case anyone is interested in the future.

I find the Vera Wang collection stunning! There’s pics of the rings on people’s hands on the zales website.
My favorite is this emerald halo…but I haven’t tried it on. I picked another ring at zales with a double halo and 10 prongs around the centre stone.

Hi! I just joined and when I was trying to find pictures of the Vera Wang Love line on real women’s hands I found a few posts including this one on this site that were extremely helpful (some came up during an engine search). Hopefully this may help some others!
I have only had it a few weeks so I can’t yet attest to the durability, etc. but I love it and the quality looks great to my untrained eye.
My ring is the 1 3/4 CT Three Stone. (Center stone is ¾ CT)

carly442 : Hi Carly, I know this is an old post! I think we have the same ring. Just curious, did you buy a band, or are you just wearing the ring? On the fence about adding a band! Can you post a pic?

AmandaShea8 : Hey Amanda, I know this is an old post. I just got a vera wang ring. I think it’s the same one. Did you get a band? I’m on the fence. If you did, can you post a pic?
