Cool question!

I grew up in SE Asia and moved to the US for college and medical school. Currently living in the East Coast. I got engaged a couple of weeks ago and my pride and joy ring is a 2.41 ct J VVS1. It is a super ideal cut from Crafted by Infinity. To me and everyone who has seen it, the diamond looks very white. In my culture, a white, flawless diamond is the goal. But I knew I wanted the best bang for my buck and a super sparkler. The ring is gorgeous and I cannot stop staring at it. No one has ever commented that it looks tinted or yellow. ๐Ÿ™‚

I am from Scotland and would say the most common is probably .50ct solitaires. I have been seeing more larger stones recently of about 1ct but still would say that solitaires are most common. You do see a lot of clusters as well. Mine is 1.06ct, G, VVS2.

From the NE of the US, now live in the rural south. Most of my friends from college have in the .7 – 1.2 carat range. It’s more common to see .5 carats and halos or different stones where I currently live.

Here is my beauty! My dream ring and wedding band thanks to my beloved husband ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m from Mexico and Darling Husband is Italian. Round solitaires are most traditional in both our countries, but recently I’ve seen a lot of halos and pavés.

Sorry if the picture is huge I’m on mobile, I’m from a large city in the USA, I would say most people and my friends all have diamond solitares, either round or princess cut. My unmarried friends all want sapphires though lol , yellow and blue seem to be the most common.  I have a pink sapphire with a hexagon halo, she is moody though and sometimes looks grey when it’s overcast or pinky orange in bright sunlight.

Im from Texas! Most people I know have a carat or under with a halo or a double halo! My fiance and I are both college students and I have a .8 carat with a halo! Its perfect<3 Rounds and cushion cuts seem the most popular…I know six people off the top of my head with a cushion cut. Ovals are on the rise though and Im the only one I know with one! I love ovals<3 Most people have white gold, Im a rose gold fan though, again the only one I know with rose gold! image_1image

I’m in Chicago and I think being such a diverse city I haven’t seen a popular style, but instead everyone has their own thing going on. We definitely seem to like a bit bigger than not. But that is just what I have seen and I dont pay too close attention.  

Here is my baby

1.3 ct round brilliant, j color, xxx, no fluorescence,  si2 set in a 1ct halo setting

Another Texas bee here! There’s really not a one size fits all here, you see everything. Most of my friends and what I see are halos, and most people range from .5 – 1.5 I would guess. I’m right in the middle with a .91 center, I’m a forever student (not really but it feels like it!) So we went with what we could comfortably spend ๐Ÿ˜Š

I live in Hawaii where it’s kind of a mix bag of rings. Most rings that I notice are round solitaires. I don’t see too many traditional halos, mine has a hidden halo. I’d say 1 – 2 carats is the average carat weight but you do see some pretty big bling, too.

Here is mine.

3.01 VVS1 J color oval 

4.5 TCW both rings
