I don’t have this problem…everyone I hang out with or know has a round diamond with a wedding band. But if I wanted a round diamond I would get it no matter what. Go for what you like, if you go against it you will find yourself regretting it

Mine’s kind of similar to that style, but with two larger-small diamonds on the sides.  I think it makes it a little more funky, in a good way.  Also has a cool texture on the front and back sides of the ring.

Sure, if you love it go for it.  3 of my gf’s have the same as I do too, round stone, white gold or plat, and pave stones on the band.  Otherwise, they have simple round solitaire on white gold or plat.  No one is bothered by it since its obviously a common style that we each picked out on our own.  Now if we all had the exact same unique Tacori or something, that might be odd.

say you get a round diamond to be different, then your Fiance gets a job and you have to move states away to a place where everyone has round diamonds? would you be upset because you weren’t different? would you be upset because you didn’t have the diamond you liked originally?

get what you like.

Its your ring and its supposed to last you lifetime, so you better love it, if thats means the ring is the same as your girlfriends, who cares. The ring will last longer than some of those friendships (most likely) anyways, so go with what you love! I like to be different but its not like a piece of clothing that you can discard when its out of style or you change you m ind etc. so stick with you gut!

I think yellow gold will definitely make it “different enough”. Besides, that style (princess cut w/ diamond band) is pretty popular, so it’s not like you’re “copying”, you just like a style that a lot of other people happen to like right now.

@AussieSummer:  I vote to go for it if it’s what you love.

Choose what you love!  As for worrying about looking like everyone else, certain styles become popular because it’s hard to go wrong with them.  Certain styles get mass appeal because they’re beautiful.  Also, the yellow gold will still make yours unique.

If that is what you love and it’s what you imagine as your e-ring… go for it!

Go for what you want and love and if you are considering a variation, what about a split shank with pave and princess cut diamond. Good luck with your decision, but remember it should make you happy. It is almost impossible to avoid something that someone else already has…. You will find it is the same if and when you decide tonhave kids and you are trying to decide on a name!

I think it’s funny that so many people have that ring where you are, because here everyone seems to have a round solitaire on a plain band. I actually have pretty much the same ring you posted, but no one I know has the same one. Even if they did, IDK that it would matter much as I think mine is lovely.

I think if you did it in yellow gold you would look sufficiently different.

Get it if that’s what you like! There are so few women out there with truly unique rings (I mean, how much can you really do with a small band of metal that wraps around your finger?), but that doesn’t make them any less beautiful.

I have a round solitaire on a plain white gold band. How many millions of women do you think have a ring exactly like mine? Tons I’m sure…but that doesn’t make me love it any less 🙂
