@menzies  Photos of your Legacy please! It’s so rare to see a genuine Legacy from Tiffany on a real person (rather than a knock off/inspired version).

@letigre  Not going to lie, it never bothered me before I had my engagement ring, but it bothers me like hell now when people have ‘fake tiffanys’ and then will compare it to my tiffanys. 

But then won’t say theres isn’t from tiffanys (stupid story.)

Here you go!

@FoxyBride14  Yay!  I’m glad someone else agreed with me.  I saw all these posts with all the ring specifics and was like, “Did I misunderstand the question?  Should I have said that I wanted a round diamond around 1 carat in white gold or platinum with a four prong setting and made by Tacori?”  LOL!  The operative word for me was lifestyle.  The ring fits my lifestyle ’cause it’s beautiful and I love it.  All these ring specifics would be the answer to a different question like, “What did you tell your BF that you wanted your e-ring to look like?”

@chica95110  my DH designed the ring. I work in an office setting so I never have to worry about anything falling out. When I do dishes, I wear rubber gloves, not to protect my ring, its actually to protect my nails bc my skin is super sensitive. When I shower I take my rings off. Thats the only time I ever take my rings off is when I shower.

DH and I spoke about what type of ring I would like and I did say something dainty, pave diamonds. No halo, i feel they are a big trend and I wanted something timeless. We also agreed on a low setting, as low as possible because I didn’t want it to snap on anything, or scratch him, or get in the way if i wear gloves. I hate high settings.

I wanted something elegant, classic and beautiful that had diamonds all the way across the top of the ring, that would withstand the rigors of everyday wear (i.e., no tiny stones to fall out of my ring), and, finally, that would sit flush against and look great next to a prong-set, one-carat, half-eternity band.

I had fallen in love with tapered baguettes when I was in my 20s, and my desire for them did not change almost two decades later when I finally met DH and he asked me to choose my ring.

@chica95110  Yeah, mine was pretty and sparkly. If I had a choice, I probably would have asked for a lower setting as mine is quite high and can catch on this.

@Daizy914  Halos are a trend and not timeless?

I needed a ring that I could beat up (doing a really good job of that) but also that i could easily get paint of of if I decided to do a project.

Good thing, too, as my fingers are oddly sized and the ring is basically stuck onto my finger with a guard… I very very rarely take it off, even for projects (house demo, painting, crafts, you name it that ring’s involved)

@menzies  yea, i feel like they are the big thing now, everyone has them and in time they will fade away, come back again, fade away just how every trend does. they come and go.

@Daizy914  I think thats with every ring. 

I don’t think my halo is a trend, and tiffany’s is as timeless as you can get. 

Plus my diamond is patented. 

Which is super cool.

@Daizy914  Princess Di had a halo. Is her ring not timeless? Spoilers: the answer is, it is. It’s been around for years and years, and it’s still a popular style to this day. So…

An old friend of mine, before we grew apart, used to look in jewelry shops and discuss the rings we would want if/when we got engaged. I would always point out the same style. My ring wasn’t expensive by any means, but I have a bad habit of losing things and didn’t want that responsibility on my finger. Plus, we had this idea that after we marry instead of him buying me anniversary rings, we could spend money on ‘improving’ this one. But I adore it just the way it is 🙂

@mrspinesol  First of all, you can’t compare her ring to anyone like ourselves, bc her ring is very untraditional and unique.

Just how Sapphires are all the rage now bc Kate Middleton inherited Di’s ring, everyone all of a sudden wants Sapphires, that will fade too.

Second, again, I will repeat myself, to each is own. I have my opinion, and you have yours. I feel that halos are a fad. They come and they go.
