So, this is somewhat of a rant and question lol
I chose a 1 carat solitaire because I’m a very practical person and though I do love the pave and intricate detailed rings, I hate dealing with repairs for loose or missing stones. But everytime someone asks to see my ring and i show them they say ohhh, thats pretty. The comments have been pretty dismissive almost like theyre disapponted.
So my question is I know halos are really trendy right now and everyone loves the blingy pave and solitaires are really simple so maybe that’s why I’m getting that reaction so often? Or do you think maybe solitaires are plain and boring and everyones seen them a million times? I know I shouldnt really care what people think but it’s kinda funny how that’s exactly what everyone I’ve showns reaction is. I’m just curious 🙂

I don’t understand, what do you want to hear people say? Isn’t pretty a good thing?

I don’t think anyone should jump up and down freaking out over another persons engagement ring, or am I wrong about that? A “Oh that’s pretty” is a relatively common response to an engagement ring. As long as you love it than no worries. I get the “Oh that’s pretty” and “Oh wow, I’ve never seen a ring like that before” comments but that’s because I have a black diamond e-ring. For a solitaire (my favorite type BTW) it’s probably just that common that no other comments need to be made

@SweetieP: what are you looking to hear? For you it is a very special ring, to the rest of the world, it’s another diamond ring. Outside of maybe your mom, I think you’re expecting too much!

@SweetieP: Are they giving you a dismissive, “oh that’s pretty” or a “ohh that’s pretty”?
I would be offended if someone asked to see my ring and said, “Oh that’s pretty” in a “that’s nice, I guess” sort of way, but otherwise I think that’s a pretty normal response.

I have to agree with prior posters. I think that is a very positive reaction. Can you give us some idea of the types of comments you thought you might be receiving and wish you were receiving instead?

@SweetieP: My dream ring it’s a solitaire, I also like the 3 stone kind of setting, but I mostly see myself with a solitaire. It’s simple, but its beautiful. I girl I know has the most beautiful ring, and it’s a plain solitaire. I looked at it, and said: “wow, that so pretty!” and that’s it, i loved it, but I said that, because what could I said more? “I love how simple it is!” no! I would end up offending her or something.
People don’t always say what’s in their minds, so don’t bother yourself with that. You love the ring right? It’s yours, the only person that has to love it and adore it is you… so… f*ck what other people think/say.

I agree with others, it doesn’t matter what people think. You have a timeless design that you love. I am also one who think the simpler the better. But honestly, there are certain ppl who actually don’t know/care as much about erings like we do on the bee. 😉 So those are the kind of ppl who need to see a whole lot more going on to be wowed. I’m sure it’s gorgeous, and for the record, I am wowed by many different styles of rings on different ppl, even solitaires cuz I pay attention to diamond quality. Congrats and enjoy looking at it and don’t worry about anyone else’s opinion!

@SweetieP: What are people supposed to say? Jeezus. Do you expect them to jump up and down and crap themselves at the sight of your ring?

I think that is a pretty normal reaction. While it would be nice if your closest family and friends would be a bit more enthusiastic, that is a normal and good response. I think solitaires are beautiful, and they are my favourite style 🙂

I don’t really know what I’m asking to hear. Lol maybe that since its plain people don’t really like it. The comments have been pretty dismissive almost like disappointment, I guess I should have included that in my original post. Like oh, sad face, nice lol especially coming from mainly family. Thought they’d be excited.

@JLR1982: lol no, although that would be pretty funny 🙂

I’d be happy if someone told me my ring was pretty. Why do you care what they say anyways? You love it, that’s what’s important.

@SweetieP: i don’t like the halos. i think a solitaire is very elegant.

@SweetieP: Okay, I can understand that. If people looked markedly disappointed after ASKING to see my ring and tossed off an “oh that’s pretty” in a dismissive way? Yeah, I think I’d be pretty disappointed.
