now I’m thinking about just getting her a solitaire ring. She’s not crazy into jewelry. I just don’t want it to be too much ring for her.
She was married before and had a thick ugly solitaire band. So I thought this time maybe get diamonds.
Was thinking a tiffany setting then a diamond band to stack is a look I can see her in.
Its a .80ct center stone.
I just want something she can show her family and friends and be proud of!
plain solitaire or diamonds on the side?
i want the stone to be the star too. It’s a great stone. Perfect size f color vs2

Solitaires are my jam. I have one and majority of my friends do too. I don’t know if it’s considered a trend right now but most people I know have a solitaire with a diamond wedding band. It’s timeless to me and you always have the ability to change it.

What has she talked about wanting? It hink the most important thing is to get her what she will love on her hand.
Personally, I’m not a soliraire fan. I had to look up a star shaped diamond. Not a fan. But, if she loves it. Go for it.

I love solitaires! I think it gives more options for different kinds of bands too.

I LOVE solitaires with plain bands! They’re elegant, not boring IMO. Plus I love being able to mix up my wedding bands!

mdom7 : I think a Tiffany solitaire is classic and timeless and it’s a ring that any woman would be proud to own. If you get a plain band on the engagement ring then she can decide if she wants sparkle as her wedding band.

mdom7 : Dude you just need to ask her what she wants. Going from a triple pave’d band on a double halo to a solitaire is the definition of complete opposite.
ETA: I thought you were getting her a moissanite? Did you end up buying a diamond… or…?

I think the OP meant they want the center stone to be the “star” of the ring ie the center stone in a solitaire stands out rather than competing with side stones, etc. Not literally a star shaped stone. That’s how I interpreted it at least. I think it sounds nice and allows her to decide if she wants to dress it up with a different kind of wedding band!

I love my solitaire. You can totally get one that has a little bit of flair on the setting too if you don’t want it to be too plain.

Can she make a Pinterest board of some rings that she likes? I have a solitare with pave on the band, but I also would have been ok with a plain solitare as they are both understated and simple. But compared to what you were looking at before, it is really hard to figure out what esthetic you are going for.

Truthfully, a solitaire would have been too plain for me.
What does she want, what is her taste?
i would also suggest finding out which of the C’s she prefers. She might prefer a larger stone with lower color or clarity, for example.
