Hi all, Boyfriend or Best Friend and I went looking at rings yesterday for the first time and it was amazing! We went to Kay’s and I absolutely fell in love with this ring. It is SO me! I wanted something simple, small, classic, understated and elegant. (Did I throw enough adjectives in there or shall I add more? Haha)
But I know my family might say things like “Wow that is really plain” or something like that. I don’t want them criticizing it….they have different taste than I do. Like their rings are always big and ostentatious. So not my style at all.
Anyway, tell me what you think of the ring and if it’s too plain, boring or simple.

It really dosn’t matter what your family will think.
I find it very elegent and simple. I am severly ADHD…my boyfriend will be proposing with a simple ring (a bit different than that) beucase he knows anything more/clunky/bejewleed would be ruined no matter how much I loved it.

I have a solitare, and I hardly think it’s boring or plain. It’s a classic and in my probably biased opinion, it is the only setting that will constantly be in style. Plus, it gives you tons of flexibility with a wedding band, you can go really blinged or plain or an engraving, the sky is really the limit.

I kind of don’t like it, but I like bling so maybe not the best person to give you advice on it!! lol I think that the only person that need to absolutely be in love with your ring is you! so if you love it than I think you should get it and not care about what other people have to say, after all your the one who will be wearing it for a lifetime no them!!

@IowaDDS13: See, I completely agree! I love your ring and your wedding band! The guy helping us yesterday actually let me see the wedding band that goes with the ring and it was beautiful! Very similiar to your wedding band, actually.
And @searock: You are right, it doesn’t matter what my family thinks. Now I just have to keep telling myself that lol.

Not at all…I like it a lot! I also have a simple solitaire.

@LadyBlackheart: I don’t think it matters what we or your family think. If you love it, you should get it.
FWIW: A solitaire is classic and elegent… not plain.

Make sure to look at it before you buy. I1-I2 means it has eye visible inclusions. Make sure you are ok with that.
Otherwise I really like it!

I love it! Very simple but also very classic. I love solitares!

It’s nice and classic. The only thing that gives me a bit of pause is that the setting seems to be kinda high. I’d be worried about knocking it on things.

@towandafox: +1. I1/I2 stones will not give you the sparkle that a VS stone will. What’s your budget? Now that you know you like Ring Bearer solitaires, and a carat size of about 1/4, you might be able to find something GIA graded for not much more money.
For instance, I just built you a GIA graded 0.26 ct Ring Bearer solitaire, D color, very good cut, SI1 clarity, no flourescence in a simple tiffany-style setting for $507. Blue Nile. Check them out.

It’s pretty, classic and simple. It really depends on what you like, but it’s a little bland to me. However, I’m not a classic nor simple type of girl. I love a slighty dramatic ring.

I think it’s simple and lovely. You might want to go a just a little more detail with your wedding band, maybe do a simple tiny diamond half eternity channelled or something else maybe pave band – I do think the solitare needs a complimentary band that’s all. Keep it simple.

@LadyBlackheart: It’s a classic solitaire. I think it’s quite lovely. What do you think?

@LadyBlackheart: The only hesidency should be if your guy dosn’t like it. As my bf has said, there is still a bit of an ego trip wound up in the ring a great big “hey guys, she’s mine and hey ladies be jelous” (his exact words)
