I’ve been lurking here for a little while, and this is my first post here! Here’s my story: I’ve been engaged for a little over 2 years, but we just recently chose a date for the wedding. I wore a large blue topaz e-ring (not sure of the size) until about a week ago when I got this ring. It’s an heirloom – my mom wore it when she was married to my dad, who has been deceased for 2 years. She was planning to pass it on to me later, but she thought now would be a good time. I love the meaning behind it!
Anyway, since receiving this ring, I’ve gotten several positive comments on it, but one comment I’m receiving a lot is that it’s “plain.” It makes me feel a little self-conscious and reluctant to show off my ring. I feel that it’s a good size and good fit for my hand, as I wear a size 3.75. What do you ladies think?

definitely not! It is gorgeous and timeless! I’m personally not a fan of the super blinged out rings.

No it’s not too boring! It’s classic and beautiful! Solitaires really allow the stone to take center stage!

I think it is perfect. Simple can be elegant, and you are right, it is a good fit to your hand/finger size. 🙂 don’t let people’s negativity get into your head.

Solitaires make their own statement…I was proposed to with an emerald cut solitaire engagement ring, I loved it at first sight, I loved it with my wedding band and now, five years later I love it with two….if it works for you, it works!

It is timeless and classy, and if you love it, you shouldn’t change it.

I think it is gorgeous and classic. If you really want to bling it up do so with a funky wedding band but the solitaire is so beautiful!!!

don’t even listen to those negative comments. if solitaires are “plain”, they wouldn’t be such a classic engagement ring style. you’re ring is lovely ^_^

I love your ring. I have a round solitaire myself.
It is plain, simple, timeless but NOT boring. Look at all that sparkle!

@LorensAngel: How rude of people to say that! I think it looks beautiful – classic and very sparkly. I really like it 🙂

How could anyone say that ring is plain?! It’s gorgeous! Solitaires are always beautiful and classic, you can’t go wrong with one! Plus the ring has sentimental meaning to you. I think it’s absolutely gorgeous and looks perfect on you finger!

Thank you for the nice comments, everyone! It’s good to know that there are still those who love solitaires and don’t think loads of bling are absolutely necessary. I feel better about it.

@LorensAngel: I personally love the classic look of solitaires. They aren’t trendy and they go with everything. I think it looks great and the sentimental value of it is priceless.
