    I have an OEC in a setting that looks vintage.  I’m the only one I know IRL with a ring like mine.  Most of the rings I see in my area are princess cuts with side stones.  Once in a while I see a round in a halo or a round solitaire.  To be honest, I’ve never seen a ring I didn’t like!!!

    Extremely uncommon. I don’t think most people realize it’s an engagement ring 🙂 

    I have a round diamond with baguettes and pave, in white gold, I’ve never seen a similar ring in real life (I live in Easter Europe, 99.99% of rings here are diferent varieties of yellow gold solitaires).

    The only other white gold engagement ring I’ve seen IRL ws a 1ct classis solitaire.

    Eh, I have a Round Brilliant Solitaire, so yeah it’s pretty common around me.  Actually, I should point out that my generation tends to have halo or more intricate styles – where I see the solitaires is with the older generations (I work with customers all day).

    I see a lot of different and unique rings but i would say my style is trendy especially amoung my peers- Radiant with a halo. Anything with a halo is pretty trendy right now.

    I have an Round Brilliant solitaire on a plain band. I would say that solitaires are most common where I live, but most people have an Round Brilliant on a diamond band. It’s rare to see a plain band.

    I have a Round Brilliant with baguettes on a plain band. Although a classic I never see that look anywhere in my area. Halos everywhere!

    I think my ring is really common around me, I know 3 other girls my age (around 24-5) and they all have a round cut solitaire like me aha.. I guess that’s a traditional type of ring! and it’s a safe bet for men who are not sure what to get… actually I would’ve preferred an emerald or princess cut (which seem more rare around here), but I’m happy cause it’s a Tiffany, which is totally unexpected!! Fiance is crazy!

    I wouldn’t say that mine is uncommon, although it’s the only one I’ve seen IRL that is bead set rather than channel or pave. However, there are definitely more halos around here than anything else. At least 5 girls that have gotten engaged in the past year have had almost the exact same halo ring.

    I have a bezel-set solitaire ering with a bezel-set wband. Bezel settings are not super common anywhere as far as I’ve seen, but they’re not all together uncommon in my line of work (I work in a lab) and among my climber/hiker/outdoorsy friends since they’re so practical.

    I have a three stone with trio micropave ( I don’t get to wear it offically yet tho, BOO), but most of the girls I know have a solitare or a halo. I don’t see a ton of three stones around, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t out there!

    I have a one carat moissy, and it’s one of the bigger rings I’ve seen in person. Most women in the midwest seem to have under a carat– except for younger brides. I think moissanite is really exploding among younger couples– but I get my hand grabbed and tons of compliments on the sparkle. Either that or people are dropping $8,000 + on rings.

    Mine is definitely uncommon.  It’s a gemstone channel set band style ring.  I’ve never seen anyone else with anything similar.  Here everyone has a diamond set with other smaller diamonds either in a pattern, on the band, or in a halo.

    LavenderBride24:  Radiants unite! Haha. I have never seen anyone in real life with a radiant like mine. It was hard to even find in stores- I only got to see two, one was a poor quality yellow radiant and the other was brought out from a vault at a big jewellers and it was like 3 carats (sitting loose in the jewellery store lighting =drool)

    Seems like halos are the trend here.  Or big, chunky settings.  I have not see many that look like mine, a round brilliant with sude stone.  Mine is set N-S-E-W with double prongs, so it is classic, but enough different not to look like every ring out there.
