What is your e-ring like and would you change anything about it?

I love my ring to pieces, and I wouldn’t change a thing. It was more than I wanted, and I’m so happy with it.

However, I wish my wedding ring was a 2.5mm weather than a 1.8.

My e-ring is a 1.6 triple x, J diamond in a platinum setting. I might eventually change the setting to a hidden halo or just one where other bands can sit flush against it. It’s an upgrade ring I’ve had for 3 months, so far I’m quite happy with it!

Sorry for the big pic ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

My ring is a 1.0ct (6.5mm) triple X I VS1 in 6 prong platinum. I’ve only had it since November but I wouldn’t change anything about it!

@teainthemountains:  I wouldn’t change anything, even if we could now get a bigger stone. I love my tiny dew drop (the facets and prismatic colors remind me of a drop of water). The only thing I’d change is sizing the rings up a half size because I’ve gained weight ๐Ÿคฃ For our ten year I always planned to add a Tiffany Metro band to my set and now I see they’re discontinued ๐Ÿ˜ญ First world problems! Anyway, my set is 14K rose gold, rounded bands, with a 1.51 antique cushion diamond, J/VS1.

I have had my engagement ring for about 3 years and my wedding band for a few months and I love them more and more everyday (I should!  I picked them out).

I love the thicker bands and the sparkle the wedding band brings to the set. I just feel that they are both very me.

I have a half carat princess cut solitaire. I LOVE my ring. I mean, of course I would enjoy a larger stone, but I’m very content with what I have and it fits my short fingers well. My husband picked my ring because he loved the clean lines and simplicity of it. 

We were young and I didn’t know much about jewelry, so he just went and picked it out randomly. Little did he know, I had been pinning princess cut, white gold solitaire styles on Pinterest! It makes me happy that it’s something he picked without me knowing! ๐Ÿ™‚

I love my e-ring! I’ve had this e-ring for about a year. The center stone is from my husband’s late grandmother’s e-ring and we had it re-set right after our wedding last year. My husband originally proposed with a 3D printed sterling silver ring that he designed himself (I wear it as my RHR). 

I don’t think there’s a thing I would change! Sometimes, I wish it was in a delicate halo (no pave stones on the band, just plain rose gold), but most days I’m happy I went with a solitaire setting. Maybe someday I’ll have a separate e-ring with a halo for days I want more bling ๐Ÿ™‚

I have a 1 ct stone (Moissanite for a variety of reasons), in a halo setting and pave band (diamonds). I LOVE IT. 

I knew if left to his own devices, my fiance would pick out a solitaire on a plain band – he has minimalist taste with jewelry and I already knew I wanted halo, pave, and either Moissanite or a lab diamond. I dropped hints and ultimately we picked it out together. I couldn’t be happier! I didn’t expect to get a full carat size but it’s PERFECT; I wear 4.25 and with the halo on it, the total finger coverage is amazing. Nice thin band, perfect halo size (tiny stones; I wanted petite to let the stone shine). I was picky about what the underside looked like and I like this one just fine!! We did also see a similar ring but 3/4 ct lab diamond and I really liked the underside of it, but it was like 4-5k for just the ring. We spent just under $4k including the matching wedding band ultimately, and I’m so happy we did. (we were also under contract for our house) I did have a few days after where I had a little regret for missing out on a real diamond and wanted to feel that I was worth spending the extra money, buuuuut man I’m so happy with the route we took and when it arrived I already knew I was content. My ring is gorgeous, I’d been eyeing Moissanites for YEARS, we already have the wedding band ready, etc. When my friends saw it, I could tell they expected to gush for the sake of enthusiastic support regardless, but then there was this little moment in their eyes where they realized they REALLY liked it. I don’t really buy expensive things or have expensive taste at all so I have to admit, I enjoyed that, lol!

We got engaged in October and the ring arrived around November 10-15th. So far, I can’t imagine getting a larger stone as this truly is perfect, but I’m open to a second wedding band eventually. Not into huge stacks or big rings but three sounds gorgeous for me! I told him maybe our 5 year anniversary or our first kid or something. Even if we ‘upgraded’ from Moissanite to diamond, there’d be no difference visually so it seems kind of pointless to me.

I have an 1.7 (1.8? I can’t remember) L VS1 OEC with a yellow gold 6-prong setting from Victor Barbone. The stone is quite deep, which I prefer, and the only thing I would change about the ring is the band width—the thinness makes it so vulnerable to warping. But it’s absolutely beautiful, and I love it in part because my partner was so strongly like ‘that’s the one!’ He also considered an OMC 3-stone, which I’m sure I would have been thrilled with too.

I also have an MRB just under 1 ct. I VS1 EX EX EX set in a white gold 6-prong knife-edge setting. I don’t care for it and never wear it. Perhaps I would enjoy it more if it had a different setting, but I think MRBs just aren’t for me (although I can certainly admire them on other people).

I got engaged in 2013, first with a moissanite and then upgraded for our 5th anniversary to a diamond. The ring was custom designed, and DH insisted on a double halo. I guess if I could change anything, I’d probably just do a single halo, but I still love my ring and wouldn’t change it at the moment.

I got engaged this past October, so I’ve had mine for just under three months! It’s a 1.5 carat equivalent moissanite oval on a white gold band. I really don’t think there’s a thing I would change about it. It was one of several that I showed my fiancé to pick from, but he knew this was the one I wanted most. Before I got it I worried that anything less than a 2 carat stone would look too small on my larger fingers, but I’m actually very happy with the coverage! I think a stone any bigger would get in the way at work too much and wouldn’t really “fit” me and my lifestyle. My adventure now is finding the perfect wedding band to go with it because of the slight curve it has.

I really love my ring and the diamond is low set, which is what I wanted, but because the prongs start right from the bottom of the ring, I can’t get any band to sit flush with it.  My husband had our jeweler custom make a plain band for me that has a notch cut out in it so it would fit into the engagement ring band and be flush, but it still doesn’t stay together unless I were to have them soldered together.  So I am contemplating getting it reset into a cathedral setting, so it would be slightly higher and I can wear any band flush with it.  I still want the same look (solitaire), but no gap.

I got engaged a year ago with a 7x5mm emerald in a diamond halo. I love my ring, I just sometime wonder if I should have gotten a bezel setting or 6 prongs so my emerald is a bit more protected/secure.
