What do you think of this ring? Is it TOO simple and/or boring?

It really dosn’t matter what your family will think.

I find it very elegent and simple.  I am severly ADHD…my boyfriend will be proposing with a simple ring (a bit different than that) beucase he knows anything more/clunky/bejewleed would be ruined no matter how much I loved it.

I have a solitare, and I hardly think it’s boring or plain. It’s a classic and in my probably biased opinion, it is the only setting that will constantly be in style. Plus, it gives you tons of flexibility with a wedding band, you can go really blinged or plain or an engraving, the sky is really the limit.

I kind of don’t like it, but I like bling so maybe not the best person to give you advice on it!! lol I think that the only person that need to absolutely be in love with your ring is you! so if you love it than I think you should get it and not care about what other people have to say, after all your the one who will be wearing it for a lifetime no them!!

@LadyBlackheart: I don’t think it matters what we or your family think. If you love it, you should get it. 

FWIW: A solitaire is classic and elegent… not plain.

Make sure to look at it before you buy. I1-I2 means it has eye visible inclusions. Make sure you are ok with that.

Otherwise I really like it!

It’s nice and classic. The only thing that gives me a bit of pause is that the setting seems to be kinda high. I’d be worried about knocking it on things.

@towandafox:  +1.  I1/I2 stones will not give you the sparkle that a VS stone will.  What’s your budget?  Now that you know you like RB solitaires, and a carat size of about 1/4, you might be able to find something GIA graded for not much more money.

For instance, I just built you a GIA graded 0.26 ct RB solitaire, D color, very good cut, SI1 clarity, no flourescence in a simple tiffany-style setting for $507.  Blue Nile.  Check them out.

It’s pretty, classic and simple. It really depends on what you like, but it’s a little bland to me. However, I’m not a classic nor simple type of girl. I love a slighty dramatic ring.

I think it’s simple and lovely. You might want to go a just a little more detail with your wedding band, maybe do a simple tiny diamond half eternity channelled or something else maybe pave band – I do think the solitare needs a complimentary band that’s all. Keep it simple.Smile

@LadyBlackheart:  The only hesidency should be if your guy dosn’t like it.  As my bf has said, there is still a bit of an ego trip wound up in the ring a great big “hey guys, she’s mine and hey ladies be jelous” (his exact words)
