BF and I were looking at engagement rings this weekend. Just for fun...no engagement is a while off. But I was curious to see what I liked and would not like. Also what clarity (flaws to the human eye), cut (how sparkley it is), colour (colourless to yellowish), and carat (how big it is) all meant. Well we found out! It was actually REALLY fun and enlightning! I tried on several different rings, the most expensive being $10,000!!!! I wore something worth $10,000, I'm still kind of amazed by that haha, I'm surprised they let you try things like that on so easy. I didn't even like the $10,000 ring. It was set too high, and surprisingly to me (and BF) it was too big.
I tried on a bunch of other rings, and we even got to look at the diamonds through that special diamond magnifying glass. It was cool! The one I decided I liked best was a round cut 0.50 carat diamond with really small diamonds on either side of the centre stone, and the band in white gold. It was so pretty, and now BF knows the style I like.
What do you want your engagement ring to look like, is there a certain size you want it? If you are married what does yours look like? Just curious what others like.
