I had a girlfriend who had a marquise cut engagement ring and because it snagged she was often having to take it off for this or that reason, and she wound up losing it. I felt so bad for her!

I take mine off hardly ever, and feel like the safest place for them is on my finger. They are antique, unique, and not replaceable and I would just be sick if I lost them.

Ring B's cut is nicer looking to me. And considering ring B is shown w/the wedding band also might skew some's opinion on overall gaudiness.

I got my wife the set that kinda fits into each other. Looks like a single band when together.

No titanium for me, I like the more.. traditional classic look.

Ring A was/is my original choice, the side stones are slightly different.. and then I ran across the style of Ring B and wasn't sure at that point which I liked better.

I think im still leaning for Ring A.. the ring lady called it a "5 table ring.. you can see it 5 tables away"
And in all honesty it isn't to be showy or braggy, I have EXTREMLY long fingers and something too small would just look wierd
LMAO, I am doing the same thing to my boyfriend. We have my great grandmother's ring in the house and all he needs to do is get it reset. I plan on getting my finger measured and putting my ring size on the fridge held there with a magnet!

Ring A is the one I vote for.

I told him when I decided I would write everything down.. so far its:
ring size: 5
diamond cut: marquise
size: 1.09 kt
side stones: leo enhancers that are in a leaf shape
color: yellow gold

He almost has it memorized!
Sometime I want to go back and make sure the ring I want doesn't snag too much. Right now I have a pear shaped ring (that stephen got me for xmas) and its pointy and hasn't snagged on anything yet.

I like B best. If you have a two ring set you can have them fused together (after the ceremony ) so it is one ring. That is what I did and I love it, it doesn't move around weird.

Congratulations! My preference is ring A. It is more simplistic in style and more classy IMO.

A is more sharp and ring b kinda looks bland and distracting, the ring a looks to me as 1 diamond and thus your my 1 precious love etc. etc.
