This isn’t necssarily a where I live thing, but a my group of friends from college ting…. We all have gemstone or recycled diamond (we aren’t the original owner) rings.  I think we all view diamonds the same way so maybe it isn’t a surprise.

At least I didn’t have people looking at my ring and saying “but it isn’t a diamond.”

I live outside of Seattle, Wa. I see lots of pave band and halos around here…. as well as lots of white gold/platinum settings.

From my immediate circle, most women have smaller carat round or marquise stones set in yellow gold. As for newly engaged people, I see mostly white metals (this has been true for almost two decades now), lots of pave, and mostly halo or cluster styles.

Everyone I see in my area has a round with a halo or they have a princess with a halo. I didnt want something that everyone I knew had so lol of course I decided on a radiant cut since not too many people had that. I had initally wanted a halo but my Darling Husband ended up getting me a solitare with a diamond pave band and I love it! I love that it stands out in a crowd of halos 🙂 haha

White gold solitaires (RB or princess) with a thin pave band. I don’t know anyone with a halo. Also most are .5 – 1 ct.

I live in a developing country and almost no one has diamond engagement rings here because they’re crazy expensive. I can actually remember the first time I saw someone with a diamond engagement ring (a young nurse with a small solitaire) because it was so unusual, although in hindsight, maybe it was a diamond alternative. I wouldn’t be able to tell the difference just by looking at them. Normally, as far as I know, if people do get engagement rings, they’re gold bands with one or several small gemstones like emeralds or rubies, but very small ones.

Oh, but now that I think about it, my neighbour’s son got married last year and he and his wife bought a diamond engagement ring together on a trip to the USA just before the wedding. It cost them an arm and a leg though, even before the exchange rate.

I see white gold halos everywhere here. I’m in Adelaide Australia.

I like to be different, so I went with a platinum emerald-cut trilogy.

LonnyLee:  what are the chances that the two adelaide girls reply after one another?<br /><br />(Merry Christmas morning, BTW)<br /><br />In my close circle, there has been a gemstone + engraved white gold halo (antique style, beautiful!), a yellow gold solitaire with side stones, a yellow gold bezel set three stone ring, a white gold tiffany style solitaire, and a smaller three stone princess (yellow gold also). In the wider community, lots of halos / quads.. generally smaller stone sizes (less than 1ct).

I have a friend with a quad/9-stone (not sure what the term is for a 9-stone princess shape that is set like quads are?) halo in white gold, one with a sapphire cluster ring in yellow gold, one with a small yellow gold solitaire, one with a small white gold solitaire, one with a princess cut solitaire with side stones, and mine is an old european cut halo (large stones in the halo) with a split shank (vintage style with stones, not small pave).  Everyone is all over the place.

Everything is big in Texas, especially Dallas. I’m even surprised at some of the rings that the Walmart or McDonalds workers have! I’d say the average size is 1-2 ct., but in my area it’s more between 1.5 and 2 ct. In general, the younger gals have halo rings…but that is a major trend in general.  The more affluent gals have large (3ct+)stones set in custom designs. One of my friends has a $700k perfect 7ct emerald cut with 2x diamonds on each side (!!!)…it’s crazy gorgeous, but I’d be afraid of someone cutting off my hand to take it lol
