    I only have one engagement ring but I guess I have a few rings that could be considered engagement rings if I chose to wear them on my left hand. I personally appreciate and enjoy seeing alternative engagement rings like colored gemstones or cluster rings. They are all beautiful and depending on the individual meaningful to each person. For me however I am a one engagement ring girl. ORTRTA as we like to say here.

    But if pressed or in need of an emergency ER (hopefully that never happens because those circumstances would not be happy circumstances ) I could wear my Black Opal or my OEC cluster ring or even one of my very blingy bands on the left hand. Or I could once again borrow my great grandmother's old cut diamond ring and wear it as an engagement ring. I have shared photos of all the above and don't want to bore you with the same photos again so will share a collage.

    You could never bore me with photos of your rings! You’re actually giving me an idea..I don’t have to have a second diamond engagement ring right now..My husband is sensitive but that’s another story....If it’s big and it’s another stone then that could work and scratch my itch. :twisted2:

    I didn’t have an engagement ring 40 years ago, technically we didn’t get engaged, just got married :lol:

    To celebrate our 40th in a couple of weeks, I got Bella.

    Your rings are to die for. I love the baguette shank/band on your top engagement ring..I’ve never seen one like that! The ring is gorgeous..Your other set is also so pretty!

    So many beautiful rings!! My mom always had a couple different rings growing up, so that must be where I got it from...

    My husband appreciates my love of sparkle and I’m lucky to have a few pieces in my collection! I currently have three on regular rotation:

    1) My original RB wedding set
    2) Vintage EC
    3) Vintage target ring

    I had a little 3 stone that I recently sold, and I am parting ways with the oval since I’ve had it reset 3 times and have never been happy with the setting...

    I didn’t want to start another thread..but do you see diamonds and jewelry pattens in everyday life? I was making the bed at my house in Maryland..and noticed that my vintage quilt looks like cluster rings! :lol-2:

    The pattern around this mirror would make a nice band! I’m sure people rest design jewelry get their ideas from everyday life!

    @luxe - I love the solitaire in your wedding set. Would you mind telling me what size that stone is, and what size your finger is? Thanks so much!

    Thank you! 9 years later and she’s still my favorite. I don’t remember all the specs now but it’s a modest .62 on a 4.5 finger.

    I currently alternate between maybe 12-15 different rings as my engagement ring. I’m a total CS girl so I play in the land of color. I often pick my ring based on my mood or outfit. My DH doesn’t care what ring I wear on that finger so long as I’m wearing one. :mrgreen2:

    Here’s some of them...

    I mostly wear my reset 5 stone rose gold e-ring (orignially a 3 stone), but occasionally wear my full 20-pointer eternity with my plain 2mm rose gold wedding band if I feel like it. I ADORE the look of an eternity band with a plain band.

    Your eternity is so pretty! The stones look huge! Mine have .15 pointers and they look so much smaller. Love yours!
