I like this one better than the first one you posted, but then it is fairly similar to my own ring. The other one looks like it would catch on a lot of stuff and wearing a wedding band might be nearly impossible with it, so this one looks more practical to me.

Both rings are very unique, interesting, and would definately stand out in a crowd. That can be a good thing as long as it’s a style she likes and feels comfortable with? Since you are asking about womens opinions, I might as well give you mine. To me, they seem very “elvish”. Both settings looks like something taken from LOTR or something, and that’s not a style that I would prefer for myself. I havn’t seen the rings IRL, but from the photos I must say that they look alot like costume jewelry to me. Probably because of the settings. The sapphires has a beautiful color, though, and I love sapphires in general. I say, if you KNOW that she is a fan of this kind of look to her jewelry, then go ahead, but I would both look, and feel, silly with a ring like this, since it would’t go with my overall style. It would look off. But if she can rock it then great! You know her style better than I do. I just wanted to give you a heads up that it’s a kind of risky look to go for unless you know for sure that she’ll love it, since everybody else on this thread is so very positive about them. I don’t mean to be blunt, I just though it could be useful for you to hear from someone who’s taste this is not! And also, if I had to choose, I would prefer this one over the other. Not because I like it, but because this looks less “special special swirly dirly”. Good luck!

I find them both way too busy for my liking.

bubu:  I love this one stone color and setting! I’d be upset if this was a contender and didn’t get it lmao.

I like this one better than the other one. This one is gorgeous and so unique! I see the other one as more of a right hand ring. The style of this one just says “engagement ring” to me. I love it!

I agree with pess. Neither is my style, but if I had to choose, I would prefer the one in this thread, though it feels sort of masculine to me. I tend to like simplistic rings with slim bands though, so if this is your SO’s style, by all means go for it!

I really love the setting and shape of the center stone. I’m not a huge fan of colored gemstones for engagement rings, but this one is an exception! Just gorgeous! 

However I don’t care for the ring you posted on the other thread with flowers on each side. I feel like that would make a nice right hand ring but not engagement ring.

Is your girlfriend ok with having a colored gemstone for her engagement ring? I’d definitly find out before buying one. She may prefer having a clear stone for this ring.

bubu:  This one is much prettier than the last one, but you still haven’t said if she actually wants a colored stone, which is super important.. if she does then this one is really nice

bubu:  I got my enagement ring from Joseph’s! I love them. If there are elements of the two rings you like they can always merge them. My Fiance and I liked 4 rings and merged different aspects of each. Something to think about? I was a little involved in the process and I was fine with that. However, if you are trying to surprise her and you want her to LOVE it….I agree with the rest of the bees. Get some input from her friends. Or at least get some input from her even if its not directly. The great thing about the company is, when you do get the wax mould if you do not like anything you can let them know and make changes before it goes into production. 

 

On another note – I like each of the rings you have posted. If that is her style go with either I say 🙂
