@LadyBlackheart:  round brilliant solitaires are elegant and classic. Lovely choice. However, I would absolutely go with some of the other ladies suggestions about Blue Nile, James Allen.

You can get a higher quality diamond(ie more sparkle) for a comparable price as kays.

FH got me  simple .5ct white gold solitaire and I really did the simple elegance. Then again, I’m not much for bling .

@LadyBlackheart:  There will always be someone, somewhere who doesn’t like your ring/jewelry/clothes/hair/whatever. Wear what you want! ๐Ÿ™‚

Nope, it’s not too simple at all. It’s a solitaire, the most popular and classic style of engagement ring there is. Definitely a winner of a style. I would recommend a higher quality diamond though.

Wedding jewelry really isn’t meant to be as flamboyant as possible. That would take away from the symbolism.

I strongly second and third looking at Blue Nile, James Allen etc. The prongs are way too high for my personal preference, but it only matters what you like : )

Your ring should please YOU, not your family.

Because its a solitaire you would have lots of options for your wedding band. If you love it you should get it!

I love that ring! But I may be a little biased because I have a solitare (although it’s princess cut) ๐Ÿ™‚

Simple isn’t always a bad thing! I think it’s a beautiful ring- very classic. And like everyone else has said, you can always bling it up with the wedding band you pick.

It’s lovely. Very similar to mine. I think you can do better for the price as far as the clarity. Mine was very close to that price but my diamond is VS 2. We got it feom a wholesale jeweler. It’s a beautiful classic style.

Why does it matter what your family thinks of it if you love it?  Solitaires are classic and beautiful.  The only thing about that particular setting is that it seems really tall, which I would find annoying to wear.  I think a great style of solitaire is the “low crown” style like the Tiffany Solitaire.

@LadyBlackheart:  it is definitely all those adjectives you used.  and if your family and friends know you well enough, they’ll know that it is YOU! Besides, who cares what they think? you’re the one who’s going to look at it everyday and smile because your bf asked you to be his wife with this ring.
