It is a wide, sturdy ring with lots of metal. The diamonds are all channel set on the band so I don’t need to worry about them coming loose like I would prong set diamonds. It’s a big ring, but it’s VERY comfortable and I forget it’s on. It doesn’t scratch me or catch on my hair or spin around (euroshank) like my old ring (solitaire).

@Christy42213:  lol I know haha. I’m a teacher and I take my rings off when I’m cleaning and go to the gym and stuff so I just wanted something pretty that I loved. 

My ring fits my lifestyle bc it’s exactly what I wanted lol

Plain, simple, big, shiny.

Smallish (1/2 ctw), unique (colored stones are still pretty uncommon here), and cute 🙂 Plus the wedding band is low-maintance, but still textured, and can stand alone (which is perfect for traveling to certian parts of the world)

More pictures, please!! 😀 I love seeing the rings!

Nothing! lol. Except I do like a steal and my favourites are always vintage. The ring just looked stunning……I was in love! I am not the kind of person who wears rings everyday all day so it didn’t bother me. When we get married I’ll wear the wedding band 24/7 and the ering when I feel like it, problem solved.

I wanted a halo after trying them on and falling in love with them.  I also wanted a dainty shank with a matching wedding band that was equally dainty.   I have small stubby fingers so I still needed to bend my hands while wearing my set.  LOL

@chica95110:  Very nice thread! As a bee in waiting, and as one of shopping around for rings, I really appreciate learning about the practicality of an engagement ring. Paves are just gorgeous to me, But it never occurred to me that the stones could actually fall out!  I’m officially back to looking at solitaires.

@FutureDrAtkins:  Thank you for sharing your prong experience. I’m a dentist, and too wear gloves all day long. I never knew that Regular prongs can cut through gloves. This is something I really have to consider, as I do think I prefer regular prongs over claw prongs. May have to reorder extra durable gloves. 

 

Thanks ladies!

I didn’t give any specifics on what I wanted, but in my head I knew I wanted a clean, quality diamond, princess shape.  That’s what I got.  It was nice to be totally surprised!!  That was many moons ago and I’ve upgraded, lost it, and got a new one again.  Each time, I’ve gotten something a little different.  My priorities are still the same though with a quality diamond, everything else is second.  🙂

I deliberately chose something very low-set, because I am left handed. My stand-in ring i wore before choosing my “real” engagement ring was 6mm high and that was too much. My engagement ring is 4mm high and it’s perfect – I have only knocked it maybe twice in the year that I’ve had it.

I’m a bit hard on my hands, and have to wear gloves often as I’m in the medical field. I wanted something that didn’t sit too low, but was protected, and most importantly would not snag. So, that meant prongs were out for me. My DH and my jeweler friend came up with my design and I couldn’t be happier with it!

I just wanted a ring that had an intricate design and that seemed “heirloom-ish”

I am a klutz and love my hand cream so I definitely considered getting something low-maintenance (like a simple solitaire), but that just wasn’t me. I also realized that you can damage a simple solitaire by chipping the diamond or bending the metal, anyway.

My ring has a lot of micro-pave, and a pretty delicate setting. Looks-wise it is so me. I’m also quite paranoid, so I just take it off when I get home. I guess that’s how it suits my lifestyle… it allows me to feed my paranoia because I can use the excuse that I should take it off for most activities because I WILL damage it lol.

I have a tiffany’s legacy, I always wanted a tiffany’s engagement ring. But other than that, it gets in my way sometimes, i catch it on stuff, and I’ve scratched my face about 3 times with it

I wanted a ring that was low set and elegant, but with some unique twist.

 

I can shove my hands into my pockets and fancy myself a JCrew model without getting my ring stuck, and a lady in line at Starbs just commented that my ring was elegant, so mission accomplished!
