    I chose it’s complicated.

    I have always felt like two people trapped in one body. Half of me lives glammed out, make up and hair done, designer clothes/shoes/bags etc. The other half of me lives in a sports bra and t-shirt and doesn’t mind the hair in a pony tail and no (or minimal) make up look. It is like day and night and my life is pretty much split 50/50.

    My ring is appropriate for the glam me but for the athletic me it doesn’t work at all, much too big. I don’t like wearing any jewelry when I am sweating and working out or playing sports so I just take it off.

    erm, well, it’s complicated.  i wouldn’t say i really have a personal style, as far as clothing and all that.  i wear what i like, and that includes a BROAD range.  you might see me in sweats and sneakers with my hair in a ponytail, or a tshirt and jeans, or a in a cute cotton sundress with flats or sandals, or a brocade backless mini dress with my hair up, full makeup and contacts, or glasses and no makeup, or glasses and makeup…all depending on the occasion.  i have some nice simple “investment” pieces of jewelry, but the vast majority of my collection consists of flashy dangly costume-jewelry earrings, lol.  Fiance picked my ring *almost* completely on his own…he cleared the design with me before having it made.  (TBH i wasn’t really sure about it when i saw the design, but i wanted him to go with his vision, so i said to go ahead, and now i wouldn’t change one thing about it.)

    it’s not what i would have picked for me, but i guess sometimes other people see a side of us that we don’t even realize is there until it’s pointed out, because i think my ring suits me far better than anything i might have picked on my own.  it’s unique, and simple, and SUBTLE, and rather unexpected and unconventional.

    I have a sort of “all over” style that really varies but I’m pretty earthy/hippy-ish (as is my fiance). I also have a vintage vibe to a lot of my clothes and personal style. My ring is a great mix of a vintage feel, while my wedding band is more modern. I also don’t like anything too over the top. I think they’re perfect for my style ๐Ÿ™‚

    @wisher558:  I can’t believe how much you lucked out with this ring from you great uncle!! It’s a gorgeous pear solitaire!!It’s totally in style right now, but he must have gotten it when it was the fashion previously.

    • Wedding: June 2013

    Hello bees, okay so for the poll I selected its complicated. My husband had proposed to me with a 1ct princess cut pave band engagement ring. Late January is when we had ordered our bands (see  mine  below) mine was suppose  to go with it perfectly. Unfortunately for me, I had taken my sister to an appointment an left my e ring home (as I was in a rush) one february afternoon. whatever, need less to say my husbands drug addict brother stole and pawned it. it was about 4 months til our wedding day (June 15) and we were in a panic. Lucky for us, my husbands mother adores me, and offered to pass down her previous engagement ring. I was so afraid it would NOT suit my band at all!!! But it does in fact, look absolutely beautiful. I wish the e ring band was a little thinner though With more diamonds on each side. However, I think the ring is gorgeous. I would definitely say my rings are Art Deco vintage like in style. My personal style is very girly, with a vintage/modern twist.

    I put a departure from my style. I really don’t have a style, normally I’m in a shirt and jeans if not going to work with my jewelry matching. I have some pieces I treasure incredibly, from my late grandma and late aunt plus numerous earrings from my folks and my most treasured piece is a necklace Fiance gave me as a very first gift. All my pieces are yellow gold, and a little bit unusal. Plus I’m a huge fan of vintage (especially art deco era, oh my gosh, so pretty!). I don’t really have any diamonds, other than what Fiance has given me, I tend to prefer gemstones. My ering is no where near my style. It’s a white gold half eternity ring. I love and adore him and will marry him no matter what but sometimes I wonder.

    @Cory_loves_this_girl:  Me too! I am in a job where I literally dig in dirt almost daily (always wearing my ring), I never wear makeup except for the odd weekend, hair in ponytail, jeans and tshirts. Or worse- lulu pants lol. But I have a horrendous eye for pretty things. To the outside observer my ring does noT scream ‘me’…… But it sooo is!

    Interesting question!!! 

    I’m like your last coworker there- I have a Victorian style halo. It fancies up my t-shirt and jeans! I usually wear minimal jewellery, but always something delicate and feminine… So I think it does fit my usual style, even though it’s fancier than usual. (I love love my ring.)

    I’m a pretty varied person when it comes to style, but I like a lot of black with vibrant colors or unexpected pieces to liven it up. I thought I would end up with something uber-blingy, but when my mom offered me this simple solitaire, I couldn’t turn it down. It was the e-ring she received when my dad (now deceased) proposed to her. I had the option of having the diamond put in a different setting, but I like the solitaire look. Classic, timeless, and never goes out of style. ๐Ÿ™‚ My original e-ring was a giant aquamarine stone. I still wear it as a RHR occasionally.

    I picked “it’s complicated” because when dh and I were looking at rings the jewelry store I worked at was going out of business…a lot of the e-rings were on sale. I always wanted a simple round solitaire ring. I’m more laid back style wise…I like simple/timeless jewelry.  There was one ring in particular I was attraced to because of the center stone..it was exactly what I wanted, but the setting it was in was not what I wanted. Well, my dh (then fiance) came in to the store one day and I showed him the ring and I thought I mentioned that I wanted to remount the diamond in a solitaire setting. Needeless to say I did get the ring, but he never heard me say anything about re-setting it..LOL

    A couple years after being married I mentioned to him I would like to reset the diamond in the setting I always wanted, but seeing the look on his face when I said that…I never had it done. So…this is my ring ๐Ÿ™‚

    My clothing style ranges, I’m perfectly happy in jeans and a tshirt, but I also wear a lot of colorful skirts and dresses–but mostly because they are comfortable! I don’t put a lot of time and effort into my hair or makeup, but I usually like my clothes to match somehow. So I don’t really have much of a specific style.

    that being said, my e-ring totally matches my jewelry style! I have always loved wearing lots of rings, wear different necklaces all the time, love some sparkle, and most importantly, love purple! People say my ring is very “me,” and I totally agree!

    I would say my look is classic, rather than trendy (I still have yet to buy a mint or peach colored anything which seems to be everywhere this year!) I wear a lot of black and always wear makeup, lipstick and high heels. My Fiance often compares me to a fish who is attracted to sparkly things. I LOVE sequins, glitter, anything blingy. My life’s motto is Everything is Better with Sequins. 

    You would think then that I’d get a double hale, pave to the max Engagement Ring. Nope. We both wanted a nice center stone with nothing else to detract from it; no sidestones, no halo, yellow gold. It’s got two little surprise diamonds on the top and bottom of the setting, but that’s it. And I love it.

    My original e-ring is a halo with scrollwork and milgrain edges (very vintage, which I love)- but I always wanted a 6 prong solitaire.


    We purchased my upgrade ring two weeks ago and it will be here today!



    The solitaire is VERY much my style. I love plain bands (my wedding band is also a plain 3mm band) and wanted all of the focus to be my one center stone. I’m really happy and so glad we got my new ring. I’m very ‘classic’, and a solitaire totally fits that definition.
