It’s Friday evening and your plans include:
- Trying something new, like indoor skydiving.
- Having dinner at a nice restaurant followed by a showing of the latest romantic comedy.
- A night in with my pet, some wine, and Netflix.
- Going to a house party and meeting friends for drinks afterwards.
The television is tuned to your favorite show, which is:
- Animal Planet. I don’t care what’s on, as long as there are animals and nature.
- The Bachelor. Who doesn’t want to find true love?
- Mad Men. It fulfills the drama quota in my life and gives me a go-to topic at social events.
- Reality TV. There is fighting, crying, love, and hate. What more could you want?
You’re treating yourself to a new outfit. Where is your first stop?
- The thrift store. I love a good, one-of-a-kind find.
- Anthropologie or a local boutique with flowy blouses and dresses.
- Online. It’s way easier and you can avoid the crowds.
- The mall. There’s more options, lots of people watching, and you never know who you’ll run into.
You finally get to take your dream vacation. Where do you go?
- A solo trip to Santa Barbara—nowhere touristy.
- Maybe Paris or Florence. They both seem very charming.
- Rome for the museums and good food.
- Miami. Who doesn’t love the beach and great nightlife?
If you chose mostly A:
You are unique and some would even say bold. When it comes to Victorian style engagement rings, among other things, you want something that is beautiful, but also a bit unconventional. Pieces with bright colors and nature themes probably appeal to you, like the sky-blue color of the Ceylon sapphire in our Stone Gate engagement ring. You are a woman like Queen Victoria, who wore many colors and styles.
Chances are you have always been a girly girl. You love romance and all things feminine, like dresses, jewelry, and flowers. A flower-shaped ring is a perfect option for you, especially one with a warm-hued center. Beverly Hills is from the end of the era and is one of our most delicate Victorian style engagement rings.
You are a bit more reserved than a lot of your friends. You enjoy a night out but are equally as comfortable staying in and catching up on a book, watching your favorite shows, or updating your blog. Athens is your kind of ring because it is simple, elegant, and speaks for itself. You get the best of both worlds with a center diamond and two pearls on either side, as well as delicate detailing.
When people describe you they use the words “loud,” “outgoing,” and “fun.” When it comes to Victorian style engagement rings, you want something that shares the same traits, like Bunker Hill. This beauty features over 40 diamonds and it definitely won’t get lost in the crowd. Of course it has a pop of color, featuring a bold, blue sapphire in the center. This ring will spark conversation wherever you go, which is just fine with you.
