    Solitaire! But I’m biased 😉

    I think the solitaire’s you’ve posted are GORGEOUS!! But I really love that last nature inspired ring!  Also, it looks like it’s a three stone as well so you’re getting 2/3 🙂

    Like you said, a solitaire is very classic and timeless. It will last a lifetime. I’m honestly not a fan of the nature themed rings and think they will look really dated in a few years.

    What feels more “you?” I think that’s what you should go with. Plus, don’t just look at them online – try them on! 🙂 That’s the fun part.

    I have a nature-inspired e-ring and don’t think it will look dated, but YMMV.

    I voted for solitaire but that’s my own personal preference. I want to echo the other PPs that said that you should get the ring style that appeals the most TO YOU. Don’t worry about trends because frankly, every thing is going to look dated at some point or another.

    @chillinchillin:  Agree with PP that you should choose what speaks to you the most. Personally I would pick the solitaire or three stone and maybe you can get a ‘naturey’ wedding band to go with it as a compromise? 

     

    I sort of did that with my own rings  . . . when I was browsing before my husband proposed I really liked bezel set rings – but he surprised me with something different which I love. I picked out a bezel wedding band  🙂

    I personally would chose a solitaire for sure but I voted 3 stone because that sounds like it would have enough bling to make you happy but be classic enough that you would always like it. I don’t think it’s too much bling at all or would take away from your center stone. I like smaller side stones like .3-.6 for a center stone your size. But ultimately, do what you love!

    Of these three I actually really like the solitaire.

     

     

     

    I have a nature inspired ring and I dont think it will ever look dated. I dont think it will be a classic but I think my ring is different enough it will hold its own. I also think in order for something to look dated it has to be trendy to start. Nature theme rings are not that they’re more of a niche market. Those that are in that niche probably dont care about trends etc that have to do with their ring.

    @chillinchillin:  If you have these worries go with the classic. I like both the square solitaire with double prongs and the double pronged 3 stone. I never had these worries going into the purchase of my ring. I always knew this was my favorite 🙂

    I have larger hands too, so I voted for the 3 stone ring, followed by the solitaire.  However, if you like a nature inspired ring, go for it.  I personally think they are very beautiful!
