    My fiance chose my ring. 

    My every day style is a mix of colorful, trendy, classic and a little hipster, for a lack of a better term. He had this baby custom made just for me and I love it.  It’s perfect and definitely fits my style. I feel like it’s just the right amount of flash without being over the top, and will match anything I decide to wear…because who knows what I will feel like!

    I’m a laid back girl who never wears any jewelry. I usually wear jeans and a t-shirt. That being said, my ring is perfect for me. I wouldn’t choose anything else.

    @lolot:  Basically, it just depends on how gross the work is ๐Ÿ™‚  For example, on Monday night, I spent 3 hours rummaging through decidedly less-than-fresh otter carcasses looking for reproductive tracts.  Even though I was wearing gloves, I didn’t wear my ring.  If I’m hiking around for a bird survey, though, I’ll wear it.

    I am very simple and low maintenance. I wanted a simple solitaire with a little flare to it! It has a trellis design for the prongs and I love how it fits my personality!

    My “style” is bright, bold and pretty loud, really. I love big colorful stones, unique settings and tons of bling, my ering is not at all my typical style. I wanted it to be something I could wear all the time, with anything and wouldn’t get tired of in a year or two.

    I did get pink sapphire surprise stones, so it is a little more “me” while still looking very classic/simple

    I do have another set, that is a little closer to my typical “style”

    @mrsmay07:  I do like the rose gold prongs on your center stone though! And the pink sapphires are awesome. ๐Ÿ˜‰ the filigree on the shank is also unique. But it’s nice you have another set with black diamonds!

     

    @Cory_loves_this_girl:  So if you like a casual look, do you still wear your sparkly e-ring while in jeans and a t-shirt? I always feel weird in my comfy clothes wearing a large setting…But I do anyways ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I had no say when picking out my ring. My mom sent me a text around christmas in 2011 saying that my great uncle had a ring that he wanted to give my then boyfriend to propose to me whenever he was ready. We didn’t have to take the ring if we didn’t want to but it was a pretty ring and he wasn’t going to charge us for it. I let my boyfriend know (not expecting to be proposed to for a long time anyway) and he surprised me in April of 2012 with it. It’s absolutely breathtaking and way nicer than anything that he would have been able to afford(he could have given me a plastic ring and I’d have been happy)

    I feel really blessed to have it!

    @s2bmrscook:  Yeaah black diamond!

    I got a black diamond too, and it’s right in line with my style. Non-traditional, customized for me, overall sparkly/colorful. ๐Ÿ™‚

    @Scintillante:  Yep! I wear it 24/7. I feel like an engagement/wedding ring goes with everything.

    I mostly wear jeans, khakis, tees, sometimes blazers, and sundresses. Basically a mix of Jennifer Aniston’s comfortable look and Taylor Swift’s romantic look. I don’t really follow trends. I wanted my ring to be timeless. I think it definitely is. The solitaire look is classic but the princess cut makes it a little different (round is more popular, at least around here). Everyone who has seen my ring says it suits me really well!

    @Brickette:  Thank you! I am SO happy I went with it. Initially we did it for strictly financial reasons (poor college kids), but now I wouldn’t get a diamond even if we were millionaires. I love how much it sparkles and shines and I love how ethical it is and that everything is made in the USA (from Moissyco at least). I would definitely go strictly amora, I’m very color sensitive and wanted as colorless of a stone as I could get. I am so happy with it, I wouldn’t change a thing.

    I’m like Coworker D.

    I’m really casual, as in I walk around in public with a fanny pack casual.  So in that sense, I don’t think the halo really fits.  But I love color, especially bold blues, so I think the sapphire works, and I like the comfort of the plain band.  So it’s sort of me.  I do love bling but rarely wear it, so my engagement ring’s a bit bigger and flashier than my usual style.

     

    Here’s a ring I considered that I think would have been more “me” (I still google it sometimes – is that bad?):

    @nocleverbeepun:  I’m already married but don’t have an e-ring, just a wedding band. He still wants to buy me one when he can afford it. I’m a non-traditionalist. I like unusual stones in unusual settings. I wouldn’t complain about a “cookie cutter” ring, but it’s not exactly my style. He’s just the opposite. He’s a minimalist and a traditionalist. So I know it’s gonna be some take on a round diamond solitaire in white gold. Maybe pave to match my wedding band. He knows what I like but every single piece of jewelry he’s purchased for me since we started dating has been something generic that everyone else has. Oh well, I love him anyway.

    My fiance and I went to browse engagement rings before he proposed. I fell in love with this particular one. I tried on various other styles like solitaire and plain 3-stone rings, but I just didn’t think any of them looked pretty on my finger and I’ve never been a personal fan of solitaires. They were a little too simple for me.
