I’ve only gotten compliments from family and friends. Nothing from strangers. I’ve had my solitaire for about a year.

I’m a solitaire girl, I often compliment other people’s solitaires. My ring also always receives compliments in a situation like the nail salon or jewelry store but not so often from strangers. I’m also quick to compliment something unique that catches my eye!

I don’t really get many compliments on my ring, but we purchased my ring because I love it not because other people will admire it. Other people’s opinions on it do not correlate in any way to my feelings on it.

I can understand why people might take offense to your post, since it does imply that if you don’t get compliments, your ring is somehow inferior to rings that do.

The great things about engagement rings is that they are very personal and the only person who has to absolutely love it, is the wearer and maybe the fiance/husband.  I picked out every single detail (or lack of details) for my engagement ring and for me it’s perfect.

I have a solitaire, and I would really only get compliments while I was working (I was a cashier). Occasionally at a bar if a female bartender notices my ring. But in daily life, like out at the grocery store or whatever, no. I think it takes a prolonged, up close interaction for a random person to notice an engagement ring. At least in my experience, having a solitaire. It probably is diffent with a halo because they’re more eye-catching in general

My 10 year anniversary upgraded e-ring is a 1.85 ct. round diamond set in a simple softened knife edge, low profile solitaire setting.  My original e-ring is a 1.01 ct. round diamond set in a cathedral setting with intricate .70 tcw of pave diamonds.  I actually receive more compliments on the solitaire than my original e-ring…though that could be due to the larger center diamond size.  Different people like different styles and some are more inclined to compliment than others, so it doesn’t matter to me either way.  I still switch between both depending on my mood.

MrsGirlyGirl :  your post did come off as, “do you even get compliments if you dont have an elaborate setting like I do?! Cause I get them all the time.” 

But yeah. I do get compliments all the time. It’s a sparkly rock. 🤷‍♀️

MrsGirlyGirl :  then maybe say that? Cause now it just sounds like you want to have a ring simply to get lots compliments. Like who cares what others think of your ring.

MrsGirlyGirl :  Even that reply was a bit like solitares are less than. Rock that halo.

MrsGirlyGirl :  may not have been your intention, but can you not see how it comes off that way? I chose to just ignore it and roll my eyes before just giving an honest answer, but TBH I don’t really see how it can be read any other way.

I do. I also keep it really clean, so its usually quite sparkly. 

I remember one time I complimented someone’s ring (it was a princess cut in a kite setting), and she almost cried because she had NEVER gotten a random compliment on it. So now I make sure to compliment all the sparklies haha.
