Fashion Personality: The Hopeless Romantic
She loves roses, lace and all things ruffled. Her favorite colors are pink and red, and she loves all the little feminine details, like delicate perfume and rose-tinted lip gloss. She loves nothing more than when you plan a romantic date or surprise her with an unexpected bouquet of flowers. She has been known to tear up at the end of more than one romantic comedy, and her DVD of Titanic is worn out from overuse.
Ring Personality: Heart-Shaped Diamond
Heart shaped diamonds are among the most unique and hard-to-find stones, which makes a three stone diamond engagement ring set with one all the more special and romantic. Hearts have a special place in any true romantic’s, well, heart, and when that stone is accompanied by two colored gemstones for accent stones, you have one of the most romantic engagement rings ever created. Before you have a jeweler find you a heart-shaped engagement ring, be sure that is something your girlfriend is interested in; not everyone likes that style and you want to get it right on the first try!
Fashion Personality: The Classic Beauty
This girl takes fashion advice from a certain someone named Coco Chanel, mixing the perfect amount of polish and pizzazz to create outfits that are timeless and perfectly modern. Unafraid of classic accessories like the blazer, the silk scarf and the pearl necklace, she pulls it all off with an understated delivery that makes the classics modern again. And of course, she never underestimates the power of a little black dress and a perfect pair of pumps.
Ring Personality: Yellow Gold Classic
Quality is key for a style this simple, so spring for the absolute best diamonds you can afford. Three modestly-sized Whiteflash A Cut Above stones are going to be much more brilliant and elegant than three much larger stones with a lower cut grade. And don’t think that a simple prong setting has to boring—there are many small embellishments like a trellis or “W” shape that can add visual interest to this three stone diamond engagement ring. And yellow gold is just a vintage classic, an elegant twist to this beautifully simple ring.
Fashion Personality: The Funky Fashionista
Never one to wear the same thing as everyone else, this girl is true individual, and she likes to show it. Everything from her clothes to her jewelry to her taste in music is eclectic and betrays her indie sensibility. She prefers clothing and jewelry from boutiques, vintage stores and even flea markets, as long as each piece is unique.
Ring Personality: Filigreed and Fancy
Find a three stone diamond engagement ring with details that set it apart and make it unique. Filigreed or engraved details like the etching on this ring band give it a handmade, one-of-a-kind look; you can even have a special message engraved on the inside. Fancy yellow diamond accent stones provide an unusual contrast with the center stone and the platinum band. (Yellow sapphires can be also be used for the same interesting look.)
Fashion Personality: The Glamour Goddess
Heads turn when she walks in the room. With her sky-high heels, daring outfits and glam makeup and jewelry, this is one girl who has sex appeal and isn’t afraid to use it! She keeps it all classy by choosing a few pieces with eye-catching appeal to pull the whole outfit together. She probably already owns a jewelry box full of blingy cocktail rings and statement necklaces, which she wears with sexy self-confidence.
Ring Personality: The Emerald-Cut Bling
Emerald-cut stones are among the most glamorous diamonds for engagement rings.
