While I was looking at my engagement ring earlier, it occurred to me that if settings very similar to mine, which I consider to be very unique, became super popular or trendy, I’d be a bit disappointed. And like I do, I was wondering what other bees thought, especially others with rings they feel are unique in some aesthetic way!

I put not at all but I don’t agree with “the more the merrier” haha I wouldn’t be disappointed because it would be like “I was country before country was cool”….I had it first, I’ve had it longer, I love it. Everyone else loving it would just validate my great taste =P

@ladyamalthea: I don’t think so actually. Imitation is the highest form of flattery 🙂 I would feel like a trend setter if I had it first haha.

@ladyamalthea: Nope. Trends and styles go in and out. I chose my style of ring because I like it, not because it’s popular or not. It just so happens to be a popular style, with a few unique twists.

I’m not going to lie, I would be disappointed.
I spent a very long time looking at rings and making sure that I found one that was unique to me. When people who know me see the ring they look at it and say,”Oh wow that is so you,” and it just reaffirms the choice I made.
Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t stop wearing it, lol. I had it first!

Nope. I choose my jewelry based on what I like. I don’t care if it’s unique or trendy so a change in it’s “status” wouldn’t bother me.

I couldn’t care less. I’ve loved halos since I was way too young to even think about engagement rings and despite them being super trendy right now I still got one. They will go back out of style just like everything eventually does.

@ladyamalthea: I really love my ring because even though it’s a Tacori, it’s one of their least popular settings. I was only able to find one real life photo online before I got it, but I would be excited if it started to get more popular!

@ladyamalthea: some people would def be disappointed as I’ve seen bees say they refuse to share a pic of their ring because they believe it’s so unique. i guess they think it’ll be mass copied or something and that would make their ring worse or something? i don’t get it. e-rings are the epitomy of common and traditional, regardless of how unique someone thinks it might be. and anyway, popular is so relative to where you live.

Maybe a little. I’m not sure since I love simple solitaires and it seems 75% have the same thing. I do get what you’re saying though. I’m like that with other things, just not rings.

I would not like it. But of course, I am not worried at all because not many people like what I like

I voted for the unicorns because I would be pretty apathetic towards it,

@ladyamalthea: Not at all. Trends come and go, and plus, it’s just a piece of jewelry; it doesn’t “define” me as a person.
I loved my solitaire for many years before I lost it, and now I love my split shank pave halo. I know the one I got to replace the original is much more “trendy” than a solitaire, but it doesn’t bother me – I happened to fall in love with all the extra sparkle around the center diamond. After a couple years or decade or so, the style I currently have now will probably fall out of fashion, and younger women will be onto the next big trend. So what if lots of other people are wearing similar styles?
I’ve often thought the same thing about tattoos: people who have had them for years and years sometimes complain about traditional designs becoming really popular/trendy…it’s on your body – why do you care what someone else is wearing?

@ladyamalthea: I’m not fashionable enough to know what’s trendy, so it probably wouldn’t bother me.

I wouldn’t be disappointed at all! It would just solidify that I have great taste 😉
