Premature Thoughts on My Engagement Ring

It's that time. That time where all of my friends are getting engaged. I, myself, am far from this stage in my life. Very far. And I've never been one of those girls who dreams about my wedding dress or plans the floral arrangements years in advance. It just never dawned on me. I guess when that time comes, I'll be more apt to read bridal magazines and such, but for now, I'll enjoy my friends engagement parties and weddings from an outside perspective.

However, the talk of engagement rings has got me thinking. Again, I never really thought about what kind of ring I would like. Well, until now. And letting the female race down once again, I didn't know how to refer to what kind of ring I like:

Solitaire? (I thought that was a card game?)
Cushion Cut? (isn't that the little pillow the ring sits on?)
Princess Cut? (this sounds incredibly girlie, pass)
Heart Shaped? (who do you think I am, J Lo?)
Pear Shaped? (Aiden gave one to Carrie on Sex and the City and she hated it. So I probably would to.)
Marquise Cut? (isn't that the sign outside of a theatre? Oh wait, that's marquee.)

The point is, when it comes to diamond engagement rings, I am clueless. I do, however, have an image in my head of what I'd like my future engagement ring to look like. It should be something old fashioned, I thought. After all, I have an undying love for vintage pieces and my grandmother's heirlooms. I love old things. Their intricate nature. The stories behind them. I'd love to get a ring that has been in a guy's family for years.

Coincidentally enough as I was perusing my Google Reader today, I found it. There it was. Just popping up on one of my habitual blogs waiting for me. So now I know what kind of ring I would like and how to refer to it. You know, in case anyone asks.

Dear Future Husband and friends who will influence his decision:
