While a $9,000 stone certainly says plenty about your fiancé's income, it can say a lot more about you than one might expect. Engagement rings of all sorts reveal the characters of the individuals whose fingers they sit on. So what might yours say about you?
Round engagement rings are one of the most popular types, but that doesn't make them ubiquitous – they're popular for a reason, and if you've got one it might imply that you're the sort of lady with a tried and true sense of style and long-standing ideals. An emerald-shaped stone on the other hand, has an Art Deco elegance – tall and cut with fewer facets for a striking, strong-lined diamond. If this is your ring, it might indicate an old-fashioned austerity and fashion. A stone cut in the princess style says it all in its name – you know what you like and it shines and sparkles.
Just as each couple is unique, each ring should be too. This is one of the finest things about antique engagement rings. A vintage antique sapphire engagement ring has a history all its own – and if personalities are drawn to perfect rings, your own story should match it well.
