Listen to Joe, he knows what he is saying.

She'll learn to love whatever you give her, but she'll be disappointed if it isn't what she wants.  The ring isn't for you.  I might suggest asking her family if she's said what she wants.  Otherwise, just pay attention, she's probably dropped a myriad of hints.

I suspect a lot of the opinions opposing rings will change when you actually want to and are ready to get married.

I got Cristi a nice, understated pearl set in white gold with a yellow gold band.

I guess this also counts as my Official Forum Announcement.

if you decide to go with a diamond (which you should. matt and joe are so right about this one), unless you know for sure, go with a 'safe' shape. round/princess cut would be your best bet unless you know her tastes lie elsewhere. personally, i would cringe at the sight of a heart shaped diamond. i think that a marquis cut would just snag on everything. and let's not forget the sex and the city ring disaster... pear shaped diamond in a yellow gold setting... ew.

also, a lot of people will tell you to look at the jewelry she wears now to gauge what kind of ring she would like. this is not always a good idea though... i wear very minimal jewelry, no rings at all, plain white gold small hoop earrings, and at most a bracelet of jade beads. but that doesn't mean i'm not still hoping for this someday...

That looks a lot like the ring I got my fiancee (only bigger doh). Those side things have a goofy name, like baguettes or barettes or something.

My husband and I got two identical bands for engagement rings.

They were cheap and made of titanium - "our rings will last as long as our love; d'awww!"

We had a "long" engagement, though. Over two years. I wouldn't bother if it's short. We bought prettier bands (not identical) for the wedding.

I could never have a ring with a "rock" on it. I'm too clumsy. I'd catch it on everything. Also, don't ever buy diamonds. Not because of the blood diamond thing, though that is bad, but because De Beers has a bit of a... monopoly on the diamond market. If you mention that to a salesperson, they'll say it's good because that means it's quality controlled.

Bullshit. Diamonds aren't rare. Yes. They are pretty. And if your girl moans about them, get her one. But their price is HIGHLY inflated. Rubies and sapphires are nice hard stones, and long wearing. And they are beautiful. Sapphires come in tons of colors. They are both rarer than diamonds. So are emeralds, but you don't want an emerald on a daily ring. Too soft. It'll scratch right up.

From what I understand, you can get a "fake" diamond (though it is chemically identical) for a portion of the price. There is no physical way to tell the difference. Plus, they can give you all the rare colors. I'd say look into that if you've got a diamond girl on your hands.

I feel like my aesthetic opinions (ie: platinum is for catalytic converters and white gold is for rappers) are way too strong to make my advice worthwhile.  But then you're not looking for advice, so I'd like to insert a thank you to my parents for giving me the rocks from my great-grandmother's ring for whenever I decide to get married.  Because De Beers sucks and all.  Also, I'm as suspicious of generalizations about what women want out of an engagement ring as I am about most other gender generalizations (not that they don't get at something, just that there are too many exceptions to make them useful given that you actually know the person).

Just going to throw it out there, diamonds are kind of nice for an engagement ring in that they are colorless. She's going to be wearing this thing every day, it's kind of nice to know that it won't ever clash.
Maybe that's just something I care about? Really though, no way in hell I'd get a blue/green/pink/what-have-you stone if I intended to wear it with any regularity.

As long as she isn't cooking or whatever deals with vinegar, like cleaning or something, she'll be fine. My mom has a pearl ring she wears on a daily basis and it's held up really well, because she takes it off when she cooks/bakes and washes her hands.

I've probably surpassed the forum accepted posts-per-day count, however in the "Official Haul" thread I showed off my engagement ring.  I received my ring as a Christmas gift, though my fiance and I have been engaged for two years now.

On the note of what kind of rings to go for, I have seen the full spectrum from tasteless to dazzling.  My parents wear pewter rings with celtic knotwork, though for special occasions I have seen my mother break out the old traditional diamond solitaire my father proposed with. 

My first marriage (boy howdy what a failure) found me wearing white gold band with no stone, as did my husband.

Rather than attempt to describe the beauty of my ring, here's the picture I posted of it, after which I'll cease my prattling:

I'm really a fan of the simplicity of the band, it makes the fact that it has a diamond, while not huge, that much more eye catching. *cough*You're man's cheap*cough*

But really I like it a lot, given my take on the whole idea of engagement rings to begin with, but wha-do-I know? I'm nineteen.

That ring looks like every other ring in the world. Why would you ever want to ask a girl to marry you, and then present something that 90% of the female population is already wearing in virtually identical variants on their finger?

You're right, engagement rings are so not indie. In fact, the whole idea of asking a girl to marry you is horribly conformist.

In an effort to save money by getting a unique engagement ring instead of one with a huge diamond in it, I found this awesome jewelry store that makes awesome unique rings.  I got to meet the artist and she sketched out the ring design from similar ones they had in the store.  It was great to be a part of the process of the ring design.  My wfie loved that her ring is one of a kind.  The diamond is very tiny and flush against the ring.  She decided that she didn't want a wedding band and wears the engagement ring as both.  We also had my band made there.  It is a hammered design that once again there are similar styled rings that they have made, but it is unique to me.

Funny story.  When I was telling the first artist in the store that I knew that my girlfriend soon to be wife would prefer a unique ring over one with a large diamond, he said, "You're a lucky man."  How true in so many ways.

That ring is beautiful, Richard! 

My engagement ring will likely be put away in a special place just like my mother does for hers, as my fiance and I are going to have damascus steel rings made for our wedding bands.  So yes, my engagement ring is inexpensive, but for being my first diamond I can honestly tell you it's value doesn't match the price tag.  I get misty eyed just thinking about it.  *grabs a kleenex and congratulates all on their pretties*

because it's better than proposing with an ugly shaped diamond? i never said that you should get a round diamond solitaire ring, that would be what 90% of the population is already wearing. but that's not necessarily a bad thing either. the ring that my ex-fiance proposed to me with was a marquis cut, split setting yellow gold monstrosity with tiny marquis cut side diamonds. completely cringe-worthy. i would have been a lot happier with a round diamond solitiare, even if it is what everyone else is wearing. it would be special because it would be mine.

p.s. i didn't break up with him because he got me an ugly ring.

In an effort to save money by getting a unique engagement ring instead of one with a huge diamond in it, I found this awesome jewelry store that makes awesome unique rings.  I got to meet the artist and she sketched out the ring design from similar ones they had in the store.  It was great to be a part of the process of the ring design.  My wfie loved that her ring is one of a kind.  The diamond is very tiny and flush against the ring.  She decided that she didn't want a wedding band and wears the engagement ring as both.  We also had my band made there.  It is a hammered design that once again there are similar styled rings that they have made, but it is unique to me.

Funny story.  When I was telling the first artist in the store that I knew that my girlfriend soon to be wife would prefer a unique ring over one with a large diamond, he said, "You're a lucky man."  How true in so many ways.

I LOVE that ring. That's pretty much what I want eventually. What's the store called?
