Solitaires, princess cut stones, and round halos didn’t work for me. I ended up with a round center stone set in a cushion halo, and it couldn’t be more perfect for me!

Halos, I love them in pictures but it just was WAY too much going on for my tastes.

Not really a style, but rose gold just doe snot look good on my skin!  Which makes me sad, because I think it is SO pretty!

Split shanks! My hands are so stark white that the skin showing though the shank is brighter than most diamonds! Surprised FI thought it was hilarous

Fiance picked the ring out by himself, so I didn’t get to try on rings beforehand. (I already knew what I wanted and had dropped a lot of hints, so I still ended up with exactly what I asked for.)

But when trying on RHR… anything with a thick band looks awful. I have very small hands so it looks like the ring is eating my finger. Also I’m very pale and for whatever reason yellow gold does *not* look good on me at all. 

I think halos look very pretty on other bees, but I think if I ever tried one on I’d hate it. I’ve *never* been a very ‘blingy’ girl- I inentionally avoided any kind of rhinestones in my bridal jewelry and for my bridal ‘belt’ I’m using an ivory grosgrain ribbon instead of a ‘glitzy’ belt. I’m weird and I’d rather wear feathers and hemp and rough-cut stones lol.

Princess cuts are not for me!

I was absolutely smitten with the Verragio rings that had the fancy detailing on the inside, like this one:

But the space where the arrow is drove me INSANE. Having my fingers pressed that far apart is not something I can tolerate. I was really disappointed, but I love my Michael M.!

I loved halos but I couldn’t find any setting that I loved on my hand.  I tend to really hate clutter…so I guess there was just too much going on for me.  Ended up with a nice clean-line solitaire.  Smile

Anything skinny. Emerald cut, marquise, skinnier radiant cuts, oval, etc. Also, really thin bands.

I had a pricness cut with trillion side stones in mind.  But I tried it on, and it was “meh,” and we went with a different princess setting.  But then I recently treated myself to a costume right hand ring that is a canary emerald cut with trillions, and I LOVE it.  Maybe I’d have liked it better if we looked at emerald, rather than princess.  But I also think I love my costume ring so much because the color of the center stone sets it apart from the trillions, which would not have been the case had we looked for an e-ring like that (I didn’t want a colored stone for my e-ring).

What we picked for my wedding set:

My $30 cz ring based on the design I thought I wanted in my e-ring, but didn’t love with a clear diamond princess cut center stone.

Anything over .5 ct is too glamorous for my simple personality. Halos, for the same reason, looked pretty ridiculous, but I knew before trying rings on that I didn’t like them. 🙂

I cannot stand princess cuts or halos. I am also nott a huge fan of three stone rings, but I would sooner take one of those over a princess. 

I’ve always been a round solitaire kind of person, and that is what I have.

Anything that wasn’t a step cut. I admired friends’ rings in all sorts of styles and shapes but once I tried those styles on my hand it didn’t feel or look right. I knew I wanted an elongated shape and really thought a radiant would be for me. I tried on just about every shape, but everything seemed too ‘blingy’ until we got to the emerald cuts.

Anything with side diamonds. I love them when i looked at them, but then they went on my hand and i felt nothing. Just NOT me. 

The solitaire was best for me. So no halos or anything too flashy.
