I have a good friend who has an oval center stone on her engagement ring. We are close - I am a bridesmaid in her wedding next summer. I have been looking for an engagement ring for myself and have considered pear or emerald. However, the more I look at ovals, the more I like them (b/c they are elongated and sparkly)! Is it tacky, weird, or copycatting to pick the same shape as my friend seeing how ovals are more of an obscure shape? There is only one other girl in our group who is engaged (she has a princess). Anyhow, my friend's ring is very fancy with pave, a halo, and filigree and I am interested in a solitaire with a simple setting so our rings would look totally different. I just don't want to have anyone to think I copied her or have people comparing our rings. What do you all think?
