Hello beautiful bees! I’m helping my husband’s friend pick out rings, but when I look online, I feel like everyone has a different personality profile for each ring. Like some people say Oval diamonds are sophisticated and traditional, while others say it’s artistic and daring. Also, he’s a data scientist so he wants to know about how the larger community chooses rings. Ha, he’s so adorkable.
(For my ring, I always knew from the start that I wanted a quirky floral ring…. My mister did a great job picking it!)
What kind of ring do you have? How would you describe it, personality wise? (A few adjectives)
Also is there any advice you would give to my husband’s friend that you think he should know when picking out a ring? Thanks so much Bees!

I have an antique solitaire, Old European cut. It’s set in an illusion setting. It’s unique, different and has history to it. It’s also classic and simple, like me. I don’t like being overly flashy. If his girlfriend were a ring, what would she be like?

I have round solitaire set in a knife-edge white gold band. My wedding band is a 2mm white gold band. It’s simple, like me. I love looking at other womens’ intricate and/or blingtastic rings, but for me, I keep it simple. I don’t wear a lot of jewelry anyway; in fact, my wedding band is pretty much all I wear unless I’m going out.
Advice to give him: know her style and go from there.

I have a little over aone carat round diamond solitaire on a plain 2mm white gold band. My wedding band is a matching 2mm plain white gold band. We picked it because to us it seems timeless, classic, and beautiful. I’m not abig jewelry wearer either, so simple is best for me. Also I can add different bands with it and change the look up 🙂

Mine isn’t listed: an a-band, but they have round cut gemstones.
My advice to someone searching for a solitaire style e-ring is to consider finding a center stone that he really likes and then to go from there. It’s quite likely that he is able to find a great deal on a shape or size that he wasn’t expecting.

I have a round solitaire. I’ve been described as an old soul, romantic, classic type of gal 🙂 I feel my ring is timeless. I was actually indecisive about whether or not I wanted diamonds on the band of my engagement ring, but I’m glad he went with a solitaire. You just can’t get sick of it. It’s stunning just to see one beautiful rock!

How exciting and what an honor- congrats! Don’t get too bogged down with online buzz word despcriptions. That being said I know I looked at those lists too to get an idea! I also liked looking at celebrities who I liked and seeing what they had going on.
I have a light pink oval sapphire in white gold w/ a diamond halo and half pave band. I am: Romantic, think I’m a princess but work w/ my hands, love unique yet timeless looks

I have a plain shank round halo. It’s classic yet trendy, and nice balance for me. I wanted something that was comfortable as pave shanks irritate my inner fingers, but wanted a little more bling than a classic solitaire.

Thanks, bees! This is really useful! Keep ’em coming! 🙂
I don’t know her as well as I know him, but I know that sometimes she dresses/acts pretty traditional (her family is from the south and pretty religious) but sometimes she also likes to be a bit of a free spirit. So it’s complicated…
All your rings sound so lovely!!!

ITA with MrsSparkleBee13:
, I also have a plain shank round halo. I think it’s the best of both worlds, simple yet still blingy! I also love how the plain shank accentuates the halo and centre stone.

I have an oval halo with a plain shank. It’s like a solitaire but it has that extra sparkle, without it being too much. To me it’s feminine, subtle with a vintage-y feel and I think it’s beautiful 🙂

I have a 6 prong, round brilliant solitaire on a 4mm platinum, subtle knife edge band. I feel like my ring goes right along with my personality. I’m classic and traditional, but with a bold twist.

I have a princess cut set in a tension setting. Different i love being different at times

I have an emerald cut and I think it is timeless and has an understated elegance. It doesn’t have the same sparkle as other cuts, but a high quality emerald dazzles. However I would not put it in the same category as a princess cut! Step cuts are a category all their own!
