If your Ring could choose your Dress...

We already know that the engagement ring bears a lot of significance for the woman who wears it. It symbolizes love, faithfulness and the beginning of a lifetime of happiness. More often than not, the rock on your finger says a lot about your personality and preferences, too. You've probably heard that your body shape can impact what style dress you get, but what if the shape of your diamond could dictate that decision for you? If the rock on your finger could choose your dress for you, we think we know what dress it might pick. Let's see if you agree with our picks for some of the most popular diamond shapes.

Women who prefer a square or princess-cut diamond tend to be more conservative, always organized and orderly in their daily lives. They are very honest and open about their ideas and opinions. They see the world in black and white, and always know the best course of action. www.alynebridal.comFor this personality, we would recommend theses classic, clean dresses by Alyne and Steven Birnbaum.

Ladies who wear a round diamond put family first. They are easy to get along with, always following through with their promises. They take care of their loved ones, staying one step ahead of any problem. We think a bride with this stone shape would appreciate the softness and security of these dresses by Aria and Robert Bullock.

A woman with an oval diamond thinks outside the box. She is a true individual, a great combination of creativity and organization. She is confident in her own skin, so she'll dare to show a little more.
For this type of bride, we would recommend these tastefully daring dresses by Robert Bullock and Siri.

Women who like marquise-cut diamonds are exciting, energetic, and extra extroverted. They are innovative and stay ahead of the curve. They set their own rules just to break them. They will try new things, as long as they result in a good time for all. We think the marquise-cut bride would appreciate a dress that gives her the freedom to dance all night long, and these fun, quirky dresses by Robert Bullock and Steven Birnbaum will do just the trick.

Aileen by Steven Birnbaum

A woman who wears a pear-shaped diamond is very considerate, answering the call to fill any shoes necessary. She cares about the needs of others and is very involved with her family and her community.
For a bride this sweet, we would suggest these dresses by Alyne and Aria.

The coolest feature of this bridesmaid dress are the convertible ruffle straps! You can play around with them and create whatever neckline you want OR get rid of them all-together and go strapless! The dress is a flowy luminescent chiffon with a ton of color options. And the detailed ruching on the bodice and the small pleats at the waist make for a great fit on any body type. You need to try this one on!
