ok, i’ll confess, i’ve just never been one to pick out the engagement ring before i even get a boyfriend. mostly because styles – and my personal tastes – change over time and i’ve never really cared much. plus i’ve never come across anything i really loved.
however, i have had general ideas in the back of my mind of what kind of rings i like. i don’t really love the classic solitaire style. yes, they’re very pretty and all, they’re just not me. i do really like small, somewhat simple, and flat. yes, flat. i don’t like rings that stick up much. ::shrug::
this is by far the closest i have ever gotten to finding a ring i really really like. of course, it isn’t exactly to my taste – i would eliminate all the diamonds in the band except maybe 5 tiny chips set in the band on each side. and i also prefer yellow gold. i think both modifications would make the center diamond stand out a lot more. just my opinion.
so there you have it. a ring i actually think i would love to wear.
but we’ll see what actually happens… check back with me when i’m engaged and we’ll see what i have to say then… 😉
so i’m walking along the streets of new york and i glance down at a piece of trash on the sidewalk. well that piece of trash happened to be a jewelry catalog and on the back page was a a ring i like WAY better:
