What Your Engagement Ring Shape Says About You

Like any other wedding-obsessed 20-something, I watch “Say Yes To The Dress” religiously.

But if we’re being honest, fussing over a gown I’ll only wear once seems more ridiculous thanJay Z’sdemands on tour.

Peony arrangements and Vera Wang embroidery have piqued women’sinterests since the days of Barbie dolls and hopscotch. However, choosingthe rightengagement ring is more importantthan any other wedding decision you’ll make, no matter the grandeur or simplicity of the proposal.

Thecut outweighs the couture.

A diamond’s shape shows whether you’re more of a Mila Kunis or a Solange. The multi-carat diamond is a litmus test for how well your beau knows you.

Bottom line: The ring you’ll wear every day is much mightier than the dress.

Here’s what the body of your bling-bling says about you.

Though you’re an almost-Mrs., your diamond is as independent as a single lady.You’re the type to drop a tear for this unique Rick Ross-approved shape — even if crying’s not your fort.
