What is your favorite style engagement ring?

My fiance and I are going to get my ring tomorrow and I am so excited!!! I can't decide what style I want though. I was thinking a round bezel ring but I have kinda chubby fingers and it wouldn't look right with a wedding band. So then I was thinking maybe a marquise diamond in a thin band. Anyways thinking about it made me curious what you ladies like...

  • Small and simple. I never did like the big ones. :-) I like the silver colored (white gold, I think it's called, not sure) better than the gold color. Just a simple band with a tiny diamond in the center, with maybe a couple tiny tiny ones on the side.
    Congrats on getting yours :-)

  • I love big, big, big. I have an antique ring that is 2 carats set in platinum. It has stones set around the center round stone to make it look square. It is gorgeous. I got it at a pawn shop a few years ago for $800. sort of like this one.Good luck and have fun.

  • I have a marquise and a thin band and I love it - we got it at Jared's (just like the commercial) - it's a .33 carat center stone - and has a channel on each side with 5 small diamond chips in each channel - it was just what I wanted - not too ostentatious or a problem for me in the chem lab with the kids :)

  • My DH had mine custom made. It is a princess cut (my favorite) diamond in the middle with two rubies on either side. Both of our birthdays are in July. When he proposed and showed me the ring, he said "A ruby for you, a ruby for me and a diamond for our future."

  • I love the one that I have.  I have never wanted a diamond.  Hubby and I knew what we wanted (one that resembled a ring he gave me years ago) and we looked and looked.  I have a heart-shaped blue topaz with 3 diamond chips on each side.  My wedding band is a 2mm plain white gold band.

  • Mine is an oval solitaire with 2 smaller stones on each side, and the band is twisted on either side of the stones. I am a firm believer in "Less is more" . Congratulations and good luck!
