Classic

Monday, June 6, 2011

A classic solitaire and an eternity band like this one just make such a perfect pair, don't you agree? I feel like a ring like this could have belonged to your Mama or your grandmother just as easily as you!

Would you pick a timeless style, or do you prefer a ring that's more contemporary? Or maybe you wear a family heirloom: tell us all about your sparkler, or your dream left hand accomplice!

  1. Timeless all the way! I want something that's always going to look classic and beautiful. I haven't done much thinking about my dream ring, but the one here is super gorgeous.

  3. I think it would depend on my relationship, actually. I like classic, and I like contemporary, so I would want something that reflected my man. haha

  7. That ring is stunning! I'm torn between the simplistic beauty of something like that, and a vintage inspired piece. Oh diamonds... they're so easy to love!

  8. I'm torn as is Anna.
    The solitaire ring is lovely but I also love a ring that has a heirloom feel to it too.

  9. When I picked my ring, I definitely had exactly this in mind! Because to me, it has always been about the marriage, not the engagement? (Totally my own point of view) So I got a simple .4ct brilliant diamond and my wedding band will be feature more sparkles! :)

  13. Those rings are superb. I have an heirloom engagement ring in a vintage setting and a diamond contour wedding band. A vintage take on the solitare/eternity combo!

  14. I feel like my rings are a combination - hard to get it wrong, of course :)

  15. This is totally something I would pick. It IS timeless and totally beautiful.

    For now I settle on my silver/flea market finds. hehe

  16. Gorgeous! I definitely wanted timeless and even a bit vintage looking.

  17. This is my ring set except there are diamonds on the band of the engagement ring, too. I picked a more vintage design and my husband thought I would tire of it. I love this and the more traditional look but this set is definitely timeless! xo

  18. I have always wanted a ring like that... but with two wedding bands for one on each side. Something about the round diamond has always appealed to me.

  19. I'm embarrassed to admit I recently started a pinterest board of engagement rings (despite the fact that the boy I've been seeing doesn't really have fiancee potential at all). I love rustic-looking rings so very much!

  20. These two are exactly my dream!!! mine was much much easier and simpler by far!!!I am more the classical type!!!How about you???? a big kiss

  21. Pretty, pretty! My set is very similar. A round 6 prong solitaire, but with a pave band (with a few extra diamonds around the prongs), and a pave eternity wedding band. I love vintage heirloom style rings and initially thought that's what I would choose, but my husband designed my ring, which makes it more perfect than any heirloom ring I could find:)

  22. i found myself leaning towards slightly more modern styles when we were ring searching, but i had to constantly remind myself not to go too trendy!

  23. Well, I don't have the diamond studded band, but the classic solitaire and plain gold band I do! Simple is always so much more! in my eyes!

    ReplyDelete

  27. I love the classic ring styles, though I designed my own

  28. I am all for the vintage style. dreaming of someday owning a beautiful chic and classic piece.

  29. This is my ring look pretty much - only fancier! I have a princess cut solitaire and my eternity band only goes half way around bt I love it. I mainly love it because I can take off the solitaire and just wear the band for a dainty touch!

  30. I love the classic and admittedly, my ring looks exactly like this. Call me biased.

  31. well, we are in the process of discussing this very thing and this exact style has always been a front runner. The final choice is T's (he won't tell me anything beyond "It's happening this year and I already have the whole thing planned." love that boy.

  32. I preferred classic, but now I want something a little bit different. I never did get a wedding band so I feel like I might get another and trade off.

    ReplyDelete
  33. This is beautiful! I have a similar set but my engagement ring has diamonds around the band too. It's so gorgeous and I really do love it :) Xo

    ReplyDelete
  35. so so so gorgeous. i'm totally drawn to this, but i ADORE my engagement ring because it's unique.

  36. Last year, on my grandmother's 80th birthday, she gifted me with her diamond ring, which was her mother's. I wish I could wear it every day but it is quite large. I asked how my great grandmother received it and my grandmother said that she went to NYC, to the diamond district, and bought it herself. I wonder what my great grandfather did? There is nothing quite like a family heirloom. xo Samantha

  37. I used to want an elaborate vintage engagement ring, but lately i've been drawn to this simple classic!

    ReplyDelete
  38. my favorites are round stones, but i wanted something set flat in a bezel so it wouldnt catch on clothing. love this classic look tho :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. My rings look almost exactly like that, so funny! And I have 12 diamonds on them in total, since I got married on the 12th :)
