I’m from Chicago. None of my close friends are married, but carats vary as the city is so vast and diverse.

The norm in Sweden is plain matching gold (yellow is the most common but white gold and titanium are very popular too) engagement rings, then a half or quarter eternity ring added to the womans finger at the wedding. Sort of like these:

 

And here are mine 🙂 pretty standard:

And here is my wedding band next to my husband’s. His is titanium with a yellow gold inlay:

I’m from Southern California and I have a .78 carat round center diamond in a cushion halo. I see a mix of cuts and styles here but mostly ovals and rounds.

Houston Texas Bee here. Houston is such a mixing bowl that you see every kind of ring there is and carat sizes vary. I would say white gold high set halos and cluster halos are probably the most popular. I have a .85 carat round diamond in a rose gold milgrain bezel so it is far from the norm and I love it!

I’m in Salt Lake city Utah. There’s a lot of different rings going on here. I personally mostly see either stones at 2+carats or around a half a carat usually in yellow gold. Halos and solitaires are the most popular, with the square halos, at least that I’ve seen. My center stone is 1 carat in a white gold vintage inspired setting.

I’m from a rural part of Canada, and I would say I see a pretty big gap in styles. A lot of the generation who would have been married in the 1980s and surrounding time have yellow gold soliaires, under .50ct with a plain or slightly embelished wedding band, and often a more diamond heavy anniversary band. As the trend used to be for people getting married younger so they could not afford large diamonds for engagement. 

However, in younger married/engaged crowds now, I see almost all white gold (I don’t know anyone with a yellow set except me) and typically a small centre stone, probably 0.3-0.7ct with lots of micropave and pave all over, and often a halo. A round center and a cushion halo is probably the “trendiest” style around here, with an oval on a pave band also up there. Very few plain bands. I’ve seen a few coloured stones, no other moissanites that I know of. Wedding band are either pave or plain, I haven’t seen any shape other than straight in person. 

I have a .75ct moissanite solitaire, yellow gold with a plain band. Not very “popular” right now, but it’s classic and I love it. My wedding band is going to be a chevron shape with sapphires, which isn’t very trendy for my area either but gives it a unique twist.

I’m in Colorado. I’d say “different” rings are popular here, like various gemstones and unique designs. But also a ton of cushion cut halos and rose gold, like everybody. Really only the older crowd seems to have the solitaires. Stones are generally .5 or so carat in size. Mine is actually considered “blingy” and unique which I don’t mind!
