@Woobee:  I think it’s gorgeous! My e-ring is less common than yours (purple sapphire), and as one uncommon-style-girl to another: you just have to rock it! Wear it with pride and just love it because you love it. ๐Ÿ™‚

I think it’s just what you said..it’s an Asscher. “Everyone” loves rounds, they’re very popular. Fewer people are as excited about Asscher, but you knew that when you chose it. I’m sure you knew the same about the warmth too, but it appealed to YOU, and that’s what matters. So don’t let it rain on your parade now! You didn’t choose the ring “everyone” loves, you chose what YOU love. Enjoy it!

@Woobee:  As plenty of PPs have posted, your ring is gorgeous! I would definitely want to try it on if I saw it in a store. I ended up with a similar ring myself ๐Ÿ™‚

Perhaps it’s because it’s not the classic, blingy cut? My cousin and I got engaged about the same time and his fiance’s round brilliant solitare got a lot more oohs & ahhs from the family than my step-cut ever did.

But, we BOTH know our step cuts are more interesting and pretty (to US!) than a boring solitaire right? ^_^

There’s nothing wrong with your ring, there’s something wrong with the people who are being rude after asking you to see it. Is it something I’d want for myself? Nope. But it’s not MY ring! I think it’s beautiful, and the fact that you like it so much would make it seem even more beautiful to me if I were seeing it in person. I’ve never seen one like that before which makes it even more interesting.

I’m getting a very simple solitaire setting with some unique profile detailing. I’m sure most people will think it’s bore-city (I’ve seen lots of comments on WB about how boring solitaires are) but I think it’s perfect for me and that’s all that matters ๐Ÿ™‚

I have an Art Deco-esque ring too – round with pear side stones. Yours is lovely. But I don’t think I have ever had someone comment on my ring unless engagement rings were the current topic of conversation. So I really wouldn’t worry about the lack of comments – just enjoy your beautiful ring!

@Woobee:  The problem is not with your ring, it’s with those people! Who the hell says “Let me see your ring….. Oh.”? So weird and rude. 

My ring is nontraditional to the point that even if I’m wearing it on my left ring finger sometimes people don’t realize it’s an engagement ring! Yet they still say positive things. I can’t imagine why people are weird about yours. It’s lovely. I think maybe they are struck by the cut? I don’t know. Weirdos.

Why would you change your setting just because you don’t get a lot of compliments? I guess I just don’t get the need for validation From others on your ring and/or personal sense of style.

I think its very very pretty but imo I’d go with a thinner band or larger stone so the center stone doesn’t blend in.

It is a gorgeous ring, wow! As others have said, I think the unique-ness may be what throws people off. A thinner band might let the center stone stand out more, but I really love the cool setting it is in now.

Well, I just drooled on my keyboard so I can honestly say there is NOTHING wrong with it, LOL!!  It’s gorgeous, absolutely, and not SO untraditional that people would be so quiet about it…unless everyone around your area has the ‘normal’ styles (solitaires, 3 stones, mainly rounds, etc.) then I could see a surprised reaction.  Whatever their reason, it’s amazing, I hope you flash that puppy everywhere ๐Ÿ˜‰

My cousin has a slightly different, vintage ring, and I know the first time I saw it, I was like, “Oh… my… how nice.” It was several years ago, and I knew nothing whatsoever about rings–basically all I’d ever seen were round brilliants! Now I feel bad that I wasn’t more excited/enthusiastic–I just didn’t know what I was looking at!

I’m sure that’s what’s happening with your lovely ring. It’s not a RB solitaire/halo, so people just aren’t as familiar with the style, and it’s unexpected to them when they see it. But it’s gorgeous!

I think it’s very elegant & has an art deco quality to it, it’s gorgeous and I love how the cuts of the baguettes mimic the cut of the asscher. As a fellow “classic with a twist” kinda gal (currently rocking my J Crew, Helmut Lang cardi, and some Jil S shoes) I say f*ck ’em!

I’ve actually had a similar experience to you, except my ring is a classic round solitaire on a plain skinny band. I think because it’s so simple, people just don’t have anything to say about it. It’s just like oh… a solitaire. Whatevs, you can’t win with people! I love it and that’s all that matters.

I LOVE your ring! I think it’s gorgeous!!

However, I’m not surprised. I think to get a lot of comments you need to have:

-A huge stone. People will always comment on MAJOR bling

-A trendy ring. Right now people want to see very thin, usually pave bands and a halo.

-Something VERY unusual in a trendy way– so like a colored stone or an Art Deco ring with no center stone, etc

I have a somewhat similar situation. I have a classic round solitaire in a very angular, thin setting, in rose gold. I get fewer comments because I think a solitaire is too boring for most people to comment on unless it’s huge, and few people look closely enough to notice the subtle uniqueness of my band. But I LOVE it– when I wonder if I should have gotten a halo, I always conclude that it just wouldn’t feel “me.” I have I think somewhat similar taste as you and the feminine/delicate look of all that micropave doesn’t suit my bold/modernist style.

Just be happy with your own uniqueness and don’t worry what people think!
