1910,1960 and 1990 were the best according to me. I loved that the rings were simple and the square diamonds were so beautiful 😍❤

The 1940s ring example looks like Queen Elizabeth's engagement ring. I mean it makes sense but I still like it
Alexa Sumarto (13 days ago)
I am to this day obsessed from 1920's - 1940's designs...they are the most beautiful to me. My engagement is inspired around those era.

Mine is like the 1910s but more modernized. To each his own but I didn't want mine to look like everyone else that was also getting engaged around the same time.

I was kind of surprised to only see diamonds make an appearance, engagement rings of other prescious stones used to and still are popular

Engagement ring are nothing more then a monopoly by the diamond cartels. The only reason why they can show 100 years is because it is only a 100 year old practice

We were each other's first kiss, the first time I spoke with her it hit me like a freight train. She was a wholesome shy single child, but when she opened up she showed her incredible humor, amazing creativity, and most valuably that her soul was more beautiful than I thought possible. I knew then at 16 that in a few years when we're both old enough, I had to ask her marry me. We dated for a almost a year and her family moved away. I had plenty of girls trying to date me after they found out I was single, I dated a few but none of them made me feel the way she did, I turned down all the girls trying to date and gave up on finding love. Then she appeared unexpectedly on my junior year orientation, I turned the corner and my chest sank, she smiled and like she never left she wrapped her arms around me and nestled her head in my chest. We've been dating since she came back, I'm now almost 20, and she's in her senior year. I never want to lose her again. I've had an unsent letter written to her parents asking for their blessing, and think about how I'm going to ask her every day. We don't see each other as often due to conflicting schedules and stuff, but there's nothing I'm more certain of, I have to ask her to marry me.

I absolutely loved the 1920’s ring, and the 2010 ring!
Margarita Kulyapina (2 months ago)
I think I would like my ring to have jade instead... not only is it in a colour I like, but my grandmother insists that jade is auspicious for me, so I guess that's an added boost of confidence, even if I don't necessarily have as strong of a belief in this as she does. Bonus if the ring itself is silver, since that is antibacterial and doesn't really rust.

Honestly they're all so pretty

I liked 1910s best. Always thought I wanted something simple like that. Last July, I was proposed to by my fiancé and he got me 2 rings! 1 because it has 'swirlies', my favourite thing in the world, bit is very impractical, and 1 simpler one to wear. Both are made of wood and turquoise resin (Which is genius, because we never quite found out what metals I am and am not allergic to)! The one for wearing also has a glow in the dark epoxy where the resin and wood attach to reach other! All these elements have something to do with our story. They may be unconventional materials, but it's completely personal and fitting for us! (The swirly ring I wear as a necklace btw ^^)

My grandparents got married in 1963 and my Grandma had no Ring. They had Not that much money at that time, their Family even helped them out for the Wedding Rings, so they could get married. And they really had to, because at this time, my mum was already "on the way" and an unmarried couple With a child..... Not These days. Shortly, before my grandpa died in 1981, He bought a Ring, With a blue stone, like my Grandmas eyes. And 2 days, before He passed away because of cancer, He asked my Grandma, if she would marry him again, when they meet again in heaven. And she said yes. Today, my Grandma still wears the Ring, to remember him.
