From my experience I’ve noticed when people know it’s an engagement ring they compliement the ring regardless of what shape. I have a small diamond ring with a little gold heart pre engagment -no comments- post engagement although its a simple diamond ring -tons of compliments-
that is a very pretty ring!

I have a solitaire and I often get compliments on how sparkly it is. The diamond isn’t even that big (0.76 carat), but it’s an excellent cut and I keep it clean so it sparkles.
I wanted a solitaire because I wanted the center stone to stand out, not be overwhelmed by an overly elaborate setting. I think halos often get noticed for their size more than their beauty. Not that halos can’t be beautiful, it’s just that the reaction to a halo setting is usually “Whoa! That’s a lot of bling!” rather than “Wow, that’s beautiful.”

I think the way you have responded to people has contributed greatly to the reaction you’re getting.
Your post did come across kind of condescendingly. But I chose to not take it that way, as tone is easily mistaken in text.

Thank you. I only started responding to people who were choosing to get offended when that was not my intention which I clearly stated once the first person brought it to my attention. That should’ve been the end of it but people on here couldn’t let it go.
It’s just silly really… I like solitaires and meant no harm by it.

thank you! yes When I read your question I totally found it 100% innocent. I love all styles of rings and I understood what you were asking and found it to be an interesting thread.
The drama added a lil spice too loool. Lots of communication is lost thru text so I understand how people can read things with a different tone or intention. Internet communication is hard lol 😂

I have a solitaire with pave band and I get compliments all the time. I suppose it helps that my diamond is of superb quality and sparkles like crazy.

A year and half after being engaged and I still get compliments 🙂 I have a round brilliant, 1 ct on a size 4.5 hand with a white gold pave band. It sparkles like the sun and I still catch myself staring at it sometimes! I love it 🙂
