I am a Jewellery Lover…
I like a variety of looks… classics, as well as unique pieces.
I like things for sentimental reasons too.
Your ERing clearly says a lot of things… it has a vintage feel (very art deco) and is therefore both a Classic & a Unique piece for this time
I LOVE IT
But as you’ve discovered not everyone will feel the same as you
Tradtional ERings are Round Brilliant Solitaires… and the trend today is Halos. These rings are nice… but they aren’t for everyone
When someone says “Let me see your ring”… more often than not their minds eye is imagining one of those more popular settings.
They are therefore caught off guard by your BEAUTIFUL Assher with Baguettes. They are literally left speachless
So be it…
KNOW that… YOU LOVE your Ring, and those who LOVE Jewellery, will no doubt LOVE your Ring too BECAUSE it isn’t the same old same old that is seen in every Jewellery Ad / Window at the Mall.
Hope this helps,

I think your ring is really frekin’ pretty. It strikes me as very vintage or even 1930s art deco. Is it for everyone? No, but is anything, really? You got the ring you wanted and while the reactions of those around you are startling, just remember that you got what you wanted for you–not praise.
But really…what kind of people surround you that don’t drop their jaws when they see this ring? I think it’s AMAZING, and this is coming from someone who is getting a round diamond…like my mother 😉

I love your ring! It’s actually very similar to my best friend’s ring (she loves Assher cuts). And I love hers in person as well!

Just another voice chiming in to say your ring is to die for! I agree that since the halos are the big thing, that’s almost what people expect to see. I haven’t had nearly as many positive comments about my ring as I thought I would get- it’s just not big or blingy enough to get that “wow” reaction I guess. Oh well, I’me the one who sees it every day so it’s my reaction that truly counts 🙂
Thumbs up for the awesome sense of style- rock it!

There is nothing wrong with your ring, quite the opposite in fact — it’s stunning and unusual at the same time. I love how it is simple and sophisticated.
I would attribute the lack of comments to the fact that most people have very mainstream tastes when it comes to wedding jewelry. Think solitaires, halos, elaborate Tacori cathedral settings, etc. Not that there is anything whatsoever wrong with those styles. They are beautiful as well. What I mean is that they are mainstream and appeal to a wide audience.
Don’t worry about the fact that people aren’t impressed in an obvious way with your ring. It’s kind of like trying to explain the appeal of Indian food to people who would rather just go to Applebee’s.
Congratulations on your gorgeous ring!

I think the important thing is that you have something that suits your style. I have a very non-traditional wedding band. I doubt most people would make the same choice as me, but I think it suits my husband and I really well. There are lots of people who really like it, but there are also those I’m sure who wouldn’t have picked it for themselves. No worries! I’m the one who wears it everyday, and it’s just what I wanted.

My ring is ALot like yours and no one has every said one nice thing about it. My first wedding set was very different (round brilliant solitaire with pave) and people raved over it. It has taken me some time to get used to it but I really feel like it’s not what everyone is conditioned to think of as “engagement ring” and so it’s just not as universally pleasing. Go ahead and love your choice. I think it’s fabulous!!!

@Woobee: I think you have a gorgeous ring. You know what I find funny? So many of us that are still engaged… we are still obsessed with our rings and the idea of it on our fingers, etc. I fiind that people really do not care…. I have been engaged for a year- and can count howmany times I received a compliment on one hand. I guess it’s not that important to other people!!! It is very beautiful though!!!!! You can always come on this board for compliments 🙂

I love your ring! Asscher cuts are one of my favorites! Mine is emerald cut, so similar, but I just love the step cuts. They are a little more unique these days, but just feel so classy. Ignore the haters!
