A solitaire is just so timeless…which is really important for something you will wear your entire life.

I have a solitaire, I have had it for over four and a half years with no regrets! My wedding band (what will be my wedding band) is plain as well. Of course it depends on the individual and, as PPs have shown, you can always get a blingier band or ring wrap!

Honestly I love all jewelry.  There is nothing I don’t like.  But, I have a special love for solitaries and always have.  I knew that is what I always wanted.  I think if you like ornate its ok.  Why not get a band or a few bands to add to your solitaire that are ornate in style?

I legit havethe simplest solitare you could ever get and I LOVE it. I didn’t pick it out (if I had the only thing I would have changed is i would have made the band a tad thinner). I’m dressing it up with an engraved wedding band.

Im guessing by your question that you are already regretting your decision to a degree. Your heart wants “more”. 

Solitaires are often described as “”classic” “timeless” etc but do you really want to wear a ring that looks like almost every other ring out there??? food for thought

Having said that, i truly hope your ring arrives and you fall in love with it, nothing worse i imagine than second guessing your choice. Good luck

I admit, when I first got my solitaire, I did have moments of ‘is it too plain?’ I also love ornate bands, as well as engraved detailing, and it was just SO different from my usual. However, I also knew that I wanted a specific look (thin band, spotlight on the center stone with few to no distractions) and that a solitaire was the best way to achieve it. 

It didn’t take very long at all before I got over that, and now I absolutely LOVE my ring. It’s just so elegant, and I really do love having all the attention on my lovely center stone with no distractions. I find it plays better with some crowds than others, and you’ll certainly meet those who clearly think it lacks enough bling… But that’s what the band is for, if you’re so inclined!

msop04 :  Where did you get your wedding band with the space between the marquise-shaped diamond “eye”? I don’t even know how to describe it to search for it!

NO REGRETS! Love this beauty —

Hardest part now is that it looks good with everything. I could see adding anniversary bands to change it up because I love so many different bands. I got a thin pave diamond wedding ring, but I’d love a plain solid yellow gold or a twist band someday too.

summerrose33 :   my DH  proposed to me with a solitaire. I liked it alot for few years, but 7 years later i had to change it. I could not stand the plainness of it any longer. I bought a different seeing and just inserted the original stone. This is what I have now

summerrose33 :  I had solitaire regret.  My husband and I went shopping once and decided that we liked a princess solitaire so that’s what he proposed with.  I wore it with a round shared prong eternity band because I always loved the look.  I had that for around a year and didn’t find the eternity band very comfortable.  I found myself wanting something different.  I then had lost my rings for a couple of weeks, found the engagement ring but not the eternity band.  I asked my husband if he minded if we reset the engagement ring and he was fine with the idea.  I put my princess in a split shank halo and wear that alone on my left hand.  I find it much more comfortable to wear only one ring.
