You’ve fallen in love with the man of your dreams, so now it’s time to fall in love with the perfect ring. Take our quiz to see which engagement ring suits your personality – and get ready to drop some not-so-subtle hints to your almost-fiancé. 

You’re a bridesmaid in a wedding, and the bride just announced her bachelorette party plans: An all-inclusive resort in Cabo. Sounds lovely…but you’ve been trying to stick to a budget. You: 

  1. Low-key try to convince her to do something more affordable. If she doesn’t take the bait, politely decline and send her a gift instead. 

  2. Close your eyes and press “book.” You can find other things to cut back on in order to stay on budget, right?

  3. Say yes and don’t look back. Your friend only gets married once, and you could use a vacation anyway. 

  4. Try to get a feel for what the other bridesmaids think about the situation. Who knows – maybe they’d prefer something more affordable too!

  5. Give it to her straight. Tell the bride that it’s too expensive and help her brainstorm other options. You love to celebrate, but you’ve got bills to pay!

You get passed up for a promotion at work from a coworker who’s been there half as long as you have. You: 

  1. Immediately schedule a meeting with your boss so you can give a detailed presentation on why you deserve to be next in line for any upcoming promotions. There’s no way they’re passing you up again!

  2. Work harder for next time – and make absolutely sure your efforts don’t go unnoticed by the higher-ups. 

  3. Text your bestie and set up a girls' night for a pick-me-up. You’re bummed, but you’re not going to let the disappointment ruin your week.  

  4. Call your mom on your way home from work to vent. You need comfort, and she always knows just what to say. 

  5. Start looking for new jobs. You’ve been thinking of finding something new anyway – maybe this was just the push you need. 

What three words best describe your personal style?  

  1. Chic, elegant, refined 

  2. Classic, cool, laid-back 

  3. Colorful, fun, on-trend

  4. Feminine, sweet, dreamy

  5. Eclectic, vintage, unique  

Pack your bags, it’s time for a vacation! Where are you headed? 

  1. A vibrant, bustling city. Shopping, restaurants, museums, architecture – city life is full of inspiration!  

  2. Your family’s beach house that you’ve been visiting since childhood. You’ve made so many memories there and can’t wait to make more.  

  3. A tropical resort with your besties. Salt air, sand, and good company make everything better. 

  4. A cozy cabin with your guy. You need time to unplug from the world and reconnect with each other.

  5. Anywhere new and exotic. You love exploring and finding the best local hangouts. 

Remember those superlatives in your high school yearbook? If given today, what would yours be? 

  1. Most Likely To Succeed

  2. Cutest Couple with your high school sweetheart 

  3. Best Smile 

  4. Best Hair

  5. Most Opinionated 

It’s movie night! Pick your favorite rom-com trope: 

  1. “Fake relationship” flicks like The Proposal, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, and Pretty Woman. “Fake it ‘til you make it” takes on a whole new meaning.  

  2. The “hometown boy and big city girl” trope: There’s something about a handsome guy with traditional values that makes you weak in the knees. Think Sweet Home Alabama and most Hallmark Christmas movies. 

  3. You’re a sucker for a love triangle story like The Notebook and My Best Friend’s Wedding. Bring on the drama!

  4. Friends to lovers. You crave the “will they, won’t they” tension in movies like When Harry Met Sally and 13 Going on 30.  After all, the best relationships start with a solid friendship.

  5. Enemies to lovers: Similar to the “friends to lovers” storyline but with the tension dialed up a few notches. Think Runaway Bride, Anyone But You, and A Walk to Remember 

You Got Mostly 1s: Princess or Emerald Cut

You find beauty in precision and order, so the clean lines of a princess or emerald cut diamond totally suit you. People have called you type A, but you just know that you like things the way you like them. Your standards are high, and you’re determined to get what you want. Your personal style is elegant and sophisticated but with a chic simplicity that never feels stuffy. 

For your setting, a simple solitaire is an easy choice. Or try a bezel setting for a sleek and timeless art deco-inspired look. 


You Got Mostly 2s: Round Cut  

Just like an iconic round cut diamond ring, you’re a classic beauty. You have impeccable taste, and you always look incredible because you’re comfortable in your own skin. You have a soft spot for nostalgia and tradition. Childhood memories and family heirlooms have a special place in your heart, and you likely have framed photos of your loved ones throughout your home. 

Chances are, you’ll want your own ring to be a family heirloom someday. In that case, a round cut diamond fits the bill perfectly – it’s a timeless showstopper that will never go out of style. 

You Got Mostly 3s: Oval Cut 

Just like an oval cut diamond ring, you’re bright and radiant. You’re the glue of your close friend group, and you’re often the first person someone calls when they have good news to share. As far as style, you stay up to date with current trends but always find a way to mix in your own signature flair. 

Oval cut engagement rings have been trending in recent years, and for good reason: In addition to adding a unique spin to a traditional round cut diamond, they elongate the finger and can appear larger than other cuts of the same carat weight. 

You Got Mostly 4s: Cushion Cut 

If you got mostly 4s, you’re sparkly and effortlessly feminine – just like a cushion cut diamond. Your personal style is romantic and dreamy – think bows, pastels, and nap dresses. In many ways, your softness is your strength, and you're always ready to comfort the people you love with a hug and a word of encouragement. 

At a glance, a cushion cut diamond appears similar to a princess cut, but they’re actually quite different. A cushion features soft, rounded edges, giving it a more romantic feel than the geometric princess cut. 

For a twist on the classic cushion cut, try an elongated version.

You Got Mostly 5s: Pear or Marquise Cut

Just like a pear or marquise cut diamond ring, you have a flair for the theatrical. You love to put your own spin on things and always stay true to yourself. People love that you’re straightforward and bold in a way that’s also approachable. You feel things deeply and make a special effort to celebrate life’s moments, big and small. 

Engagement rings with pear and marquise diamonds are unique and slightly offbeat, making them the perfect reflection of you. These cuts also have a vintage flair, which you can’t get enough of. 

Closing Thoughts

As exciting as it is, choosing the perfect engagement ring can be daunting. After all, you’ll likely be wearing it every day for decades to come. Do your research, but don’t overthink it. At the end of the day, follow your feminine intuition and go with your gut. In some ways, it’s similar to choosing a spouse: When you know, you know.
