What Your Engagement Ring Says About You

Your rock says so, so much about your personality.
Comments

Quite a bit of thought went into your engagement ring, whether you pinned favorites and dropped hints for months, or your fiancé enlisted a trusted friend—or picked it out on his own. There are a million rock/band permutations these days, so the unique bling that got a "yes!" says a lot about your personality and style, says Julie Sabatino, founder of The Stylish Bride. Here, she helped us decode what your engagement ring style really says about you.

Classic Grace

Your ring has: A round solitaire diamond

You are: A total traditional–and most likely, your ring finger is now sporting something similar to what your grandmother had. "You're a classic," says Sabatino. "Just like your ring, you have a timeless sensibility." You skip the trends and lean toward things that never go out of style. Lucky you: You're the one who never looks dated or out-of-style in old photos.

Your ring has: A pavé infinity band with a square diamond

You are: "You're relaxed, fun, and free-spirited—a boho bride," Sabatino says; you're all about delicate features, like a pretty, detailed band. Your lifestyle (and personal style) are led by what makes you feel untethered and of-the-moment.

Something Special

Your ring has: An ornate, multi-diamond style

You are: One-of-a-kind. "You have an appreciation for unique items and one-offs," Sabatino says. "And you don't mind a little work or digging, because 'the find' is totally worth it." A die-hard vintage lover, you like your possessions—and your people—a little eccentric and unconventional.

Your ring has:  A wider width band

You are: Bold and never feel the obligation to go with tradition. "You totally go your own way and have your own style," Sabatino says. While you're not always looking for the newest trend, you find things that speak to you and wear them without apology.

Traditional With a Twist

Your ring has: Three matching cut stones and a mixed-metal setting

You are: Anything but boring. You go for the classic simplicity of three similar-cut stones, but take it up a notch with a mixed metal setting. "You can't resist what's in style right now," Sabatino says. Your friends consistently ask you for fashion advice, and your love of what's coming straight off the runways means your closet is extremely well-stocked.

Your ring has: A large square diamond

You are: Confident and proud. "Your ring no doubt says, 'I got a rock,'" Sabatino says. That big, gorgeous statement piece is a reflection of your glam, Old Hollywood style. You love making an entrance and enjoy being the life of the party.

Your ring has: A bezel setting

You are: No fuss, no muss. "You're the ultimate minimalist," Sabatino says. "You want something that lasts through all the trends and fads." You appreciate fine craftsmanship and covet a ring that will last a lifetime.

Warm and Sweet

Your ring has: a halo setting

You are: A total softie, and you've got a serious romantic side. "You love soft, ethereal, feminine things," Sabatino notes. You take advantage of all nature has to offer and you probably always have a vase of fresh flowers on the cocktail table in your apartment.
