I'm buying an engagement ring, and I want the ladies opinon... first off, what is your ideal ring? Would you rather want a slightly smaller yet more sparkling and clear ring such as the leo diamond, or is size more important? Also, how much would you prefer your boyfriend to spend on your engagement ring?
The ring that Im looking at is a 5/8 carat 3 stone leo diamond on a white gold band. Ladies! Help!

I'll be honest I want a big stone. My guy makes good money and I've seen all the rings his friends girls have and all the other military guys girls around us and they are all a carat or more.
But I also love antiques. I've seen some beautiful are deco rings with over a carat diamonds and under 15,000. Which he could afford.
Also I'm not a fan of the Leo diamond. I prefer asscher, or radiant cut in a solitaire. And round cut if it's a three stone ring.
They say you're suppose to spend at least 3 months pay on a ring. So for my guy it would be about $12.000
But if he did payments and used his bonus then he could afford a bit more.
I want something I could be proud of and show off and something I can pass down.
I would much rather get a simple plain band ring and save up for a few years to get something bigger. I know people do that anyway, upgrades. But I want something I won't want to upgrade on. Besides you get a bigger diamond for less if you go antique. It might not be as shiny as they cut diamonds differently in different eras. But as long as it's not visibly included, I dont mind0
