I had a similar experience.  I thought I liked more ornate jewelry OR a simple solitaire and it turned out when I tried them on I liked somewhere in between.  Trying on rings is essential!

Good luck finding the perfect ring!  🙂

How exciting! I know it can be overwhelming, but it’s good you are doing this. I went online and didn’t try on and now I wish I had tried on in person. Anyway, continue your quest, and whichever styles keep resurfacing and making you happy repeatedly are probably the direction to go in. Good luck!! 🙂

Haha, I thought hated halos and bezel settings. I ended up choosing a bezel-set halo! It just shows that you can’t tell until you see them in person/try them on. I also found that diamonds/moissanite (I got to see both in person, choose moissanite for price/practicality) are MUCH sparkilier in person than they seem online. I was overwhelmed.

Eeep, this is definitely why I need to go out and actually look at rings. I keep getting myself all confused about what I want and what I like looking online. Does anyone know of anywhere that sells Moissy in DC so I can take a look at it? Hmmm….

@google:  Go to this site…http://www.charlesandcolvard.com/retail_locator/

It shows all of the Charles and Colvard dealers (good quality moissanite). To be honest, however, our jewelers (Solomon Bros., Atlanta!) aren’t on the list, but they got C&C moissy in for us to see in 2 days. They showed it to us compared to an “H” colored diamond of the same size they had in stock. Also, their price was significantly better than unenhanced moissy on MoissaniteCo and other online dealers. Check it out! Don’t settle for JC Penney versions!
