    @FemShepN7:  Wait…. so really it’s just that an engagement ring with “white gold, a large stone and side stones” is the most popular among divorced ladies? I’m pretty sure that describes most non-solitare rings sold in the past 10 years. Surveying only divorced ladies doesn’t help. I’m gonna guess that discription could be used for the ring most popular with happily married women, too.

    How are they defining “large stone”? I’m going to assume it is a stimulant/gemstone/moissy because I don’t know of any diamond you could get with the accent stones that would qualify as large. (Pave or side stone settings alone usually cost about $1000)

    But the whole article is ridiculous regardless

    Lol, it is December, and a slow time of the year for News generally.

    It is also Engagement Season… and Jewellery Stories as unlikely as one would think they’d be… they abound… GOOD & BAD

    Oh, NO! I also have a white gold ring with a center stone and side stones (I’m assuming my channel-set ones count)!

    @VivienMarcheline:  It sounds like they asked women to tell different characteristics of their rings and then they took the answers with the highest numbers and said that’s the “divorce ring”. So 100 people say they have a “large stone” and 100 OTHER people say they have a ring that cost around $1300… viola…. this magical divorce ring that is $1300 with pave and a big ass center.

    To @VivienMarcheline:  For the record…

    It is a UK Survey… and Ladies in the UK have definitely smaller ERings / Feature Stones than we do here in North America

    So when it says LARGE Feature Stone that could easily be something in the 0.50 range not the 1.0+ range.

    @FemShepN7:  This is ridiculously stupid. That said, I had a princess stone in white gold with round side stones in my first marriage! 0_0

    Oh geez. I seen this floating around Facebook just last night. It makes me laugh, and think it’s total hogwash. A solitaire with accent stones, describles a zillion rings.
