those are gorgeous rings! I think they will make a beautiful engagement ring! Don’t be constrained by what society or your mother tells you is an engagement ring!
As to your question…. Yes I was wowed by my ring! I picked it and when it arrived via post, I squealed like a happy pig in mud! It was lovelier than it appeared in pictures! Five years later I still love it but you fixate less on it. It is still my favourite most special piece of jewelry. I wear it everyday and I’d never upgrade, change it because of sentimental reasons. Get what you love but don’t fixate on it…its a piece of jewelry. If you don’t love it so much in ten years, you can switch it out….NBD!

My e-ring is the only ring I have ever been obsessed with! Since the day I saw it for the first time I constantly looked at pictures of it, and basically obsessed over how beautiful and different it was. I still have a mini photo shoot with it nearly every week. Call me crazy, but my Fiance did amazing!

What about a coloured diamond? I was completely blown away by mine. It’s like my own little ray of sunshine. 2.6 ct fancy light yellow diamond centre, 5ct TW.

I agree with you. I love handbags, clothes but most of all jewelry. i like that my ring makes a ” wow” statement as an accessory or alone.

I was absolutely WOWed! When he showed me the ring after he asked, I gasped! And I had helped pick it out/have it designed. But I didn’t see the finished product until the proposal and it is so gorgeous – I LOVE it!

this isn’t my original engagement ring, my husband bought it for my birthday last year so I have something fancy to switch out to when I want. Its a champagne diamond so it has some colour and makes it more unusual but its still so sparkley and I love the split shank. Its a slight twist on a classic. My original engagement ring is a ruby and diamond three stone which I pair with a channel set band, so neither of my sets are full on traditional. You just need to try on some more until somethign speaks to you

Not sure if I was really WOWED I had helped design it but I loved it immediately. For awhile I did suffer from diamond shrinkage at times but it once fell down the drain and I was absolutely devestated. Fortunately we got it back, although my fiance did say he would buy me another if it was lost for good. Since then I have loved it 100% and would not change a thing. For me almost losing it really taught me the sentimental value of it. And tbh it does suit me.

Yes I was wowed by my engagement ring when my fiancé proposed and loved picking out my bands to go with it

Honestly? I wasn’t WOWed by it and neither was my family. In fact my mom said “that’s it? He didn’t upgrade the diamond I gave you? I expect him to give you an amazing trip since he didn’t put the money into the ring.” That being said he’s the one I care about having and I don’t wear my ring much so it’s not a huge deal.

I sent my fiancé a pic from Pinterest of my dream ring and he surprised me a ring that looks almost indentical, but with a larger center stone. I’m still wowed by my ring as it was exactly what I wanted and then some.

I was completely wowed by mine even though it was not what I had in mind at all!
He picked out a cognac diamond for me. I love the story he tells about how he found it too.
I had thought I knew ‘exactly’ what I wanted as well, and this ring would not have fit my mental checklist at all. However, you’d have to pry it off my cold, dead, hands to get me to give it up now. 🙂
I think you should have the ring you want, but I also think this is a discussion between you and your other half. You might be pleasantly surprised about what he’ll pick out for you.

I love my engagement ring, but I espsecially love my stack and the way it all looks together. I am very picky, so my husband and I had a lot of conversations about what i wanted. I would recommend having an open conversation rather than trying to be totally surprised.

yes, I love my rings. They’re exactly what I wanted and I’m very thankful that my husband was ok with me picking out the ring with him. I still find myself staring at it or taking pictures of it…3 years later LOL.
