@MrsFuzzyFace:  I certainly think that people with similar values (i.e. at the same conference) would have similar rings. Additionally, the conference attendees probably had some kind of normalized financial playing field.

Or maybe it’s just sign of the trend at the time they got married. I would imagine most of the women fit the same age bracket……..go back another twenty years and they probably all had gold rings and had poofy sleeves on their wedding dresses, ha!

I don’t know. A solitaire on a white gold band is a pretty popular e-ring style. Just off the top of my head I can think of like a dozen women with something similar and I don’t think their values have anything to do with it. I just think it’s a popular choice.

I think timing is likely the biggest issue. Ring from around the same time period tend to look alike. Although mine is a family heirloom so I guess I’d fit in better with 70 year olds.

I don’t know.  I am going to totally generalize here, but Fiance tells me that my ering reflects me because I’m traditional, kind of simple with my style, basic, etc.  I think Christian stay at home moms sounds pretty traditional, maybe don’t spend a whole ton of time on their appearance, etc.?  Again, not trying to stereotype in a bad way, my ring is the same 🙂

I don’t know, off the top of my head, most of the e-rings of friends of mine that I can think of are round solitaires. (And though some are Christian or Catholic, they’re not culturally conservative/home-schooling types.) I think it’s just a really common style.

A solitaire on a white metal band is pretty much the standard e-ring. Most of my friends (I know a few with 3 stone rings) wear exactly that same ring. Round diamond of about a carat, simple white gold or platinum solitaire setting. All of very different backgrounds, most with no children and full time jobs. It’s just a popular style.

I would say your analysis might be more unique if all the other women  you were surrounded by had say a sapphire halo ring or something, the ring you have is a very classic solitaire look.

It is a standard e-ring, so that could be part of it, but I think this is an interesting theory! I’d love to see more on this.  I notice a ton of late 20’s women around here wear only a simple band.  They’re actually really understated and beautiful and it makes me feel like mine is too flashy, but I love it so much!

Maybe you noticed them more because you have one, so your eye is drawn to it and you may notice it more than one that doesn’t look like yours. (Confirmation bias)

@GoldfishPie:  

Good point!  This happens to me every time I buy, or consider buying a new car.  I feel like I see them everywhere!

Interesting! In a meeting at work the other day, I looked around and realized that of four women, all of whom were married or engaged, we all had highly untraditional but dissimilar rings. Made me chuckle a little.
