    Definately round solitaires followed by princess cut stones in plain settings in real life. Ive never met anyone with a gem stone as an engage,ent ring…

    Around here, I see lots of princess cut solitaires and small marquise rings with side stones/surrounding stones of some sort, but the latter is likely due to the number of people I know who were engaged when those rings were popular.

    Halos. Everybody has them. Of my 10 or so friends that are engaged/married, all 10 have a halo. There’s 2 women at work who have solitaires, and another with a three stone (Not too many married women where I work), but in my day-to-day experiences, the rest have halos. 

    Also in my personal experience, younger brides are getting halos, wheread those that are older and have been married for a few decades dont have halos.

    Mostly three stones followed by round solitaires.

    I see lots of halos and three-stone rings.  I’m the only person I know with a princess cut solitare.

    I would say solitaires probably…round and princess most often. I see many styles though on a regular basis so nothing feels especially popular in my neck of the woods right now.

    I see a lot of round and princess solitaires, and a lot of three stone rings. I’ve only seen one halo IRL. I have a friend with an alexandrite ring, and I have moissanite. I also have seen a few marquise lately, which I found interesting since they are for the most part out of style, but every girl should have the ring she loves, no matter what is in fashion. I love that I’m the only person I know who has a cushion cut stone! 🙂

    Here its your basic solitaire (various sizes), followed by 3 stone rings, followed by marquis in yellow gold. 

    Generally it follows this rule – med sized solitaire with a pave band – engaged within the last 3 years.  3 stone ring, white gold, engaged within the last 5 years or so.  Yellow gold three stone ring, engaged in the last 7 – 10 years.  Yellow gold maquis stone, engaged 10+ years ago.  

    There are people who don’t fit into those categories, but it’s held true with all the women I know.  There are some overlap – the solitaires and the 3 stone rings recently.  Of everyone I know who’s been engaged within the last 5 years I am the only one with a halo. I don’t know a single other person with a halo.

    Usually round or princess solitaires. I’m the only one out of all my friends that has a halo.

    Halos everywhere lately. Prior to that it was cushion cut solitaire on a pave band for the last few years. And even in jewelry stores I went hunting for my reset they only carried halos- out of 3 private Jewelers no one carried a simple solitaire setting.

    oOmrsstopaOo:  the most common around here is solitaires or solitaires with pave. I’ve also seen a lot in my age group (early 20’s) of cluster/invisible set halos Since most can’t afford a large stone.
