i need help everyone!!! i need to go pick out an engagement ring with my b-friend/husband to be but i've never really thought about wedding/engagement rings or honestly marriage itself that much at all. i don't own anything with diamonds so honestly i'm a little confused about what to do. I only wear silver toned jewelry so that makes it easier. for some reason this is styming my sense of style!!! i generally love sort of mod oversized jewerly, but obviously cost is an issue-- i can't get some cocktail ring can i? and for some reason i'm a little trepidatious about going the conventional single stone setting with wedding band. this is stressing me out!

This photo is very very similar to my wedding ring (this jeweler's no longer has my ring style -2 years ago)....
My ring is 14k, 2 carat marquise cut with 3 verticle rows of diamonds and baguettes on either side. Big and lovely just how I like it. I wear no other rings on the left hand. My husband is wanting to upgrade it but I don't want to. I love it because it's the first piece of jewelry from him.

I my hubby. we just celebrated 2 years on June 6th.

I cannot wait to get engaged... am dating a wonderful man who's perfect for me, so it's only a matter of time (I hope!!) I dream about engagement rings, I am obsessed. I really want a 3-4 ct. cushion cut with small side stones in a low-profile platinum setting. Or I want a ring like my mom's... a band of 5 diamonds like 1.5-2cts. each. I want my wedding band to be just plain platinum. I ride horses so I can't have anything that will get messed up.

So jealous of all you girls with all your gorgeous diamonds, so far I have not seen one I don't like. Everyone here (and their fiancés) has such wonderful taste!!

I have a Tiffany setting 0.91ct, DVVS1. My SO and I never discussed marriage much less engagement rings so you can imagine my surprise ! I love it and wouldn't trade it for anything in the world altho' sometimes, I will give him a hard time and say why wasn't it 1ct or more ?? My wedding band is a plain Elsa Peretti® band ring in platinum with a miniscule diamond of 0..02cts

i'm sort of on the prowl right now, but i'm not getting an engagement ring (i guess we've sort of been engaged for like a year now) so i'm just looking for a ring to wear. no diamonds or other rocks...i like simple silver or white gold bands. i might have a friend of mine custom make ours...i love her stuff and it's inexpensive, considering.

The 2nd one *jj* posted reminds me of the Vera Wang one - I tried it on in real life and it was absolutely GORGEOUS !

I'm not married yet (a bit too young) but i'll tell you what my mom's rings look like... the first one my dad gave her she picked out and it's .5 carat diamond on a thin gold band (it was the 70s). Then on their 15th anniversary she got a 2 carat diamond in the same setting. Finally, for their 25th he gave her a 6 carat flawless ruby on a band with diamonds around it... I'm totally in love with the last one
