I know there are many articles and quizzes on diamond shapes and what type of personality you have related to specific stone shape but I personally feel like I fit into more than one category.
For me it’s traditional but with a twist. I am family and home centered and reserved but I’m definitely NOT the average bride and definitely did not have a traditional wedding. The way me and my husband met seems like a fairytail so I’m a super hopeless romantic and melt when anyone mentions love at first sight… it’s absolutely magical to me how you don’t even know someone but you know they are the one for you since the moment you see them. I was lucky enough to experience that once in my life with my now husband of almost 5 years so I can now die happy .. enough mushy stuff.. let’s hear about you!
What do YOU personally think your ring says about you whether you chose it or not. Feel free to post pictures.. love me some ring porn

I think for me, I have a round solitaire, and it is fitting for my personality. Classic, simple. I like wearing black, gray, whites, etc. I am a minimalist who likes simple lines!

the most interesting thing about my ring vs. “who I am” is that I am Canadian and enjoy living an actively green lifestyle for that reason I wanted my diamond to be mined and cut in Canada so rest assured my diamond is non-conflict.

My ring is a three stone emerald cut…. I never really thought about the cut, but I love it. The diamonds don’t sparkle like some other cuts, but they are super clear and the color is lovely. I love the ring because when my husband gave it to me, he talked about how it represented his children, my children and our life together as a family. He wears a 3-stone too!

Mine is a low bezel set round halo with 2 pink diamonds which represent my children. I’m a low maintenance person so bezel was a great choice, and I’m a sap about my babies 🙂

@GelaMac: LOL that is SO funny! Now that I think about it that sort of think makes sense for me too!
I love reading these.

My ring doesn’t say much about my personality. I’m pretty loud, opinionated, and like to be different, and I have a round solitaire. However, I do have a thing for the classics, like anything vintage. So I guess it does relate to my personality somewhat 🙂

I have a round solitaire traditional and simple. Its really the only peice of jewelry I wear. I’m also a hopeless romantic so this perfect for me. Also the simple setting lets me be creative with our macthing wedding bands which my super artsy side loves. 🙂

Hmm….I have a round ruby. I would say that it means I dare to be different and bold (the bright, fiery red) but also like tradition. (Round cut, solitare)

I have a princess cut diamond on a split shank band, which reminds me of my Gemini duo personality 🙂

My “ering” is a low set full bezel round solitaire in hand forged yellow gold. I think it says I am low maintenance & active (bezels are great for both of those), as well as a sort of quirky (not a traditional looking solitaire), and who likes natural and soft shapes and lines (very organic and natural look).
My husband would (does) say they represent me well as they remind him of Lord of the Rings (nerdy), spidery (kind of weird, and also like my fingers apparently), different but yet intriguing and attractive. Despite parts of this description he loves them and thinks they are very me…ha ha.

I will have (hurry up bf! 🙂 ) a cushion blue sapphire with a halo and two half moons on a pave band. I think the look is somehow traditional and reserved, but unique and a statement piece. I love sapphires and blue is my bfs favorite color so I think the sapphire says I’m sentimental and yet get distracted by colorful shiney things. The setting says I’m a bit of a princess and that I don’t mind attention too much. All of this is true! 🙂
The ring is a compromise overall. I dreamed of a dramatic ruby ring with a halo, and my bf loved the look of a blue sapphire with 2 side diamonds. So we designed this ring together and the result is perfect for me and a representation of our relationship. I LOVE it and will never part with it, unless its to pass on to our kids.

@pierogi: Ooh good call with the split shank = Gemini/duo thing. I’ve never thought of that before, but it applies to me also. 🙂
I have a split-shank pave halo (square) with a princess cut center stone. It sounds more elaborate than it is, I think.
I think it kind of has this “understated elegance” to it, which is me. It’s kind of vintage looking, more than some of the new cuts of halos. I’m a pretty “classic” person. I’m the girl wearing the blazers with jeans 10 years before it was trendy kind of thing. I don’t dress in what is trendy, I dress my body type. I don’t wear a lot of jewelry, but I *do* like to dress up. My ring is intricate but it isn’t large – a .5 carat center stone, about .75 total. So it does go pretty well.
I’m classic, but I’m not simple…if that makes sense. Lol.

I have a princess cut that is “kite set” at a 45 degree angle. Darling Husband teases me that this is because I am his “crooked princess.” I say it just means I’m quirky. 🙂
