redpeonies:  I live in Texas where I usually see the big tacky ones. Like nothing that’s good big, just over the top or they’re totally simple and cute. Not a whole lot of in between

I’m in Canada, (in a fairly large city by our standards), Lol.

I see tons of pave, solitaires, and halos. I also see lots of ‘upgrade’ rings which are usually a very large princess cut solitaire.

redpeonies:  I live in the south.  And I see a lot of solitaires!  Princess or round.  Then I see the occassional halo.  The most important thing that I’ve noticed is that if someone has a large solitaire, their band is plain, a small solitaire, their band has diamonds on it. Obviously I am outlier in my general area with a semi moderate stone with a plain band.

I’m in an Australian city. Until recently I’d say there was a clear dominance of round or princess cut solitaires in relatively plain White gold settings, around the 0.5 carat mark. More recently there’s been much more of a mix of styles, a move towards more elaborate pave or halo settings, other types of gold (though mainly still White gold), other diamond shapes (particularly emerald) and other stones (eg among my friends I’ve seen diamonds, moissonite, rubies, sapphires and blue topaz).

Now that I think about it… Idk? live on the islands & I guess not many peoplE my age are married yet, I know one of a friend that has a large CZ & husbands friends wife has a halo.. But I think the average where I’m at is either small halos or solitaires.

I am from the Netherlands and live in Sweden since 2008. Both here and in the Netherlands it’s common to wear a plain band as an engament ring, and wear that same ring once you are married. My fiance is from the States and got me a diamond engagement ring. I am the only one in my friends circle who wears a diamond engagement ring.

singapore! almost all round solitaires, i think i’ve seen ONE princess cut. usually on the small side (less than 1 carat), sometimes with side stones. lately the trend is for fancier custom settings. but even then, i’d never heard of a halo until the bee! oh and i’ve never seen anyone with a gemstone ering, although i know of some local designers who do. and even those are more of the hipster brands.

redpeonies:  UK bee here. I most commonly see round brilliant or princess cut solitaires set in white metal of around 0.33-0.5 ct, sometimes with stones on the shoulders but typically without. Three-stones are also quite common.

Indiana – I see a ton of solitaires and three stones, and some halos too. My best friend has a three stone with an infinity twist band, I have a simple halo with pave band, my coworker has a solitaire with pave band, and my other friend has a cushion halo, but one of the more metally, super bowl-ring looking ones (not my taste, to each their own!) So I guess we have a pretty good representation of all the ring trends!

I live in VA and the past 4 or so people who’ve gotten engaged have a round solitaire. I also see a lot of princess cut solitaires. Every now and then I’ll see a halo.
