Wow, I can’t see anything but one diamond. Regardless it’s beautiful and a great size on your finger. Maybe you can post another picture that shows what part of the ring you are unhappy with as it really looks like a solitaire on this end.

Well it looks like a solitaire to me. I think it’s quite lovely! Screw the other people and their comments.

How rude of them! Solitaires are lovely but so is your ring. How boring would the world be if we all had the exact same thing? If they had nothing nice to say, I don’t know why thy opened their mouths.

If it wasn’t just their rude comments getting you down but after a while you still wish your ring looked different you can always change your band design at any point. The jeweler can recast the same metal and re-set the same stones, if you like, just in a different style. You could use the outer stones as sidestones down the sides of the band for more of a solitare-esque vibe. Or go “full solitare” with your center stone and put the outer ones in your wedding band… or so many other options.

I once got the comment “Wow…. It’s tiny!”. Don’t stress it. It doesn’t matter what other people think, so long as you love it!

Is it a cluster? Clusters are beautiful. Your ring is gorgeous, ignore the girl!

@MrsJenBee:  ditto, I really like simple cluster rings. They have a very vintage vibe to them!

I would not worry what others say, OP. We all have our preferences. Sometimes people have no tact but I do not think they mean it personally (and if they do they kind of suck!). 

Enjoy your ring, I think it looks great on your hand!

I love your ring and totally commend you for not slapping the other girls for being so rude about it. I have to admit that I, too, thought it was a solitaire, but I say that in a “what a neat surprise!” kind of way. Your ring is beautiful, and you’re right – it’s really special and unique. Embrace it!

I have ring regret all the time. Much like your ring, my ring is a cluster/halo, and I would have preferred one larger centre stone. This is what my DH went with because of the $ factor, however, so I rock it. I’m learning to love it.
