What Your Engagement Ring Says About You

1 January 2011

What Your Engagement Ring Says About YouHoliday engagement season ends tonight and, if you’re anything like this writer, you know several ladies who got a ring for Christmas. Even celebrities got in on the action, with Reese Witherspoon, Natalie Portman, and LeeAnn Rimes all becoming affianced. Though the engagement ring is actually a relatively recent tradition created by the diamond industry, as any engaged or married lady will tell you, the first thing people ask you is “Can I see the ring?” With that in mind, we’ve created a tongue-in-cheek guide to what sort of bride wears what sort of ring. Keep this handy for when your newly-engaged friend asks you to be her maid of honor.

Round: Round stone brides tend to be mellow women who claim that they don’t have the “bride gene.” While sometimes this leads to an elopement, more often it leads to a wedding that straddles the fine line between laid back and disorganized.

Princess Cut: Pointy corners=pointy personality. Is it a coincidence that the princess cut rock is often spotted on episodes of Bridezillas? We think not.

Emerald: Emerald cut ladies are usually obsessive planners, considering every aspect of their wedding right down to the smallest detail. It’s no coincidence that notorious Type A personality Reese Witherspoon just got one of these.

Halo: Pave brides are the most likely to savor a long engagement before setting a date. Perhaps they’re distracted by the intense sparkle on their left hand.

Heart: Let’s be real. The only person with a heart shaped diamond in this day and age is Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger.

Non-Diamond Ring: We are biased (and sporting a sapphire!), but the gemstone set tends to eschew super formal weddings in favor of nontraditional (and yet, still stress-inducing) shindigs.

No Ring: Admirable people who are able to maintain strong ethics resolve in the face of shiny sparkly presents. We salute them.
