Hi, I wanted to run a poll to see what respondents think of the coloured stone E-rings they received or designed. I wanted to know how people perceived the way they received their Engagement rings and what they would have done differently if they could.

The purpose of the poll (anonymous or not) is to determine which way you would have liked to have received your E-ring, if you could have made a choice at the time.

Pardon the phrasing if it is inaccurate, but just choose the closest approximation. I have an inkling which way the polls will go in PS, but would be interested to find out how exactly people feel. :))

Sorry for the longish poll options - i wanted to be concise but accurate. Do shout if I missed an obvious alternative option. I'm running another poll for the diamond crowd over on RT, just to see if there is a different E-ring mindset.

I'm not sure which one to pick, but...

IMHO, the best thing to do is to get input from her on the ring (does she want a CS? what color metal? what general style? other likes and dislikes?) and then do most of the legwork yourself and surprise her.

I received no E ring.... :(sad
Ditto this - its probably why I feel a need for all these gorgeous rings now ( :naughty: ) - to make up for the "empty" place inside... :lol:

hubby would never have picked out something for me that i like as much as i have. never in a million years.

we were already married when i told him i'd have liked an e-ring. we were engaged for a little ove 24 hours before we married so even finding wedding rings as an issue at that point much less an e-ring. it is never too late to get one, ladies.

Just wanted to add that I'm into having A LOT of say over it, but having it ultimately be a surprise. But I like surprises, in general.

I really wanted to run this here because CS erings in general are so much more complex than diamond erings.

You can't just decide on a budget and get the best. First you need to know which colour, then which stone for that colour (or vice versa), then what size, what setting etc etc.

So I am curious how people will poll :)

It was a surprise, but he knew what I wanted. I just wasn't sure it was what I would get. I did!

Rate now me and my future fiance are just starting to look for stones , i never thought it would be this hard but it really is , i have been engaged before and finding the center stone to my diamond engagement ring was not nearly as hard in my opinion. Colored stone engagement rings are totally different , there are so many varieties of gemstones , and to pin point a color and all the specifics is a little daunting.
