(Closed) Cluster ring ladies: why did you choose that style?

posted 8 years ago in Rings
  • poll: Why did you choose a cluster for your engagement ring?

    I wanted more coverage for a more affordable price

    I wanted to give the illusion of a large solitaire without the price-tag

    I think they look more unique

    I prefer the sparkle of lots of smaller stones to that of one larger one

    I think they have an antique look

    I wanted a diamond ring and it was the only way we could afford one

    The extra coverage is a bonus, but not why I wanted one

    I wish I didn't have a cluster

    I love my cluster!

    LadyMoriarty:  Oooh, I’ve got a snowflake-y ring, but it’s more a halo than a cluster so I won’t post here ๐Ÿ˜‰ yours is sooo pretty.

    My fiancé chose it, I didn’t really have a say and kind of wish I had as I’m quite limited now as not much goes with it without it looking over the top

    I didnt know my ring was called a cluster until my first visit to this site a few hours ago and i saw so many hate comments about clusters. But i do not care what ANYONE thinks. This was the third ring i looked at and i couldnt put it down, i wanted nothing to do with any of the other rings shown to me. ๐Ÿ™‚ I found MY ring right away and that was that. I will say that its sad women are hating on others rings for “cheating”. My ring was $2,250, if i had liked a more expensive ring, we would have put that one on lay away instead. It wasnt about cost, it was about love, and sparkle! Haha

    Oh, I know this thread is a bit dated now, but I just had to comment. Arrgh, the snobbery of people that look down on cluster rings. They have a beautiful, unique sparkle and are lovely rings in their own right. Why do they have to be compared unfavourably with solitaire rings??!!  And if someone wants more sparkle for their buck, why not?! If you’re lucky enough to be able to afford the big old solitaire that you have your eye on, then all the best, but don’t look down on others that need to compromise.

    Yeah, the disdain for cluster rings on here was a bit shocking to me. My first e-ring from DH was a cluster. I picked it out because I thought it was pretty. He on the other hand wasn’t fond of it. I ended up exchanging it later for a princess cut diamond with a halo. He loved that one. Then I found a setting I LOVED, and it’s a style I never looked at before. So I ended up taking my princess cut back lol. But I picked out a cluster ring initially, and price wasn’t a factor. Actually the cost was similar to the other e-rings in the store, so I picked it out solely because I liked the way it looked. I also don’t understand the bashing on here because many rings on the bee can fit in the “illusion” category. Whether it’s halos, moisannites, amora, etc… All of those styles or gemstones give an illusion and a plethora of threads on here sing praises of those rings. So I truly don’t get the hypocrisy.

    They are pretty, just not my style at all but a princess halo cluster is what my fiance surprised me with and I don’t want to hurt his feelings. The kicker is it cost him much more than the small round single stone which I’d have loved ๐Ÿ™ and three girls I know have almost identical rings to mine.. I wonder if I wont care in a few years or if my ring will always bother me..

    I love my quad/cluster ring. I chose it because I got to get a lot more bang for my buck. Being two college students, this was a huge bonus. Also, upgrading the ring is so easy in the future when we are more financially stable. All I would have to do is take out the quad and replace it with 1 princess cut diamond. This gives me something to look forward in the future while still enjoying a beautiful diamond ring in the meantime.
