    HappymrsM:  I think three-stone rings are classic and timeless! That said, I think you should go with the solitaire because it seems like that’s what you really want. I also really like the idea of making the side stones into earrings for your daughter. =)

    I’ve never heard of three stones being dated… I know a ton of 20 somethings that have them.

    If you want a change but don’t want to give up you your ring you could get a couple of stacking rings. I do think that first solitaire is gorgeous though. You could have the other two diamonds set in earrings.

    I think 3 stone rings are classic, and not outdated at all.

    I think you should keep your ring. There will always be trends that come and go, that although beautiful are not your original ring. In 10 years, halos may be a thing of the past, and so may solitaires.

    Get the solitaire you want. Nothing wrong with changing it so long as it’s what you want and your husband doesn’t mind. 

    But I do not believe that anyone’s engagement ring can ever be “outdated”. Engagement rings are not there to change with the “style of the month”, they’re forever.

    I don’t think 3 stone rings are outdated at all!  I love the solitaire with the diamonds down the band (biased of course because that’s what I have!).  You can always put a gemstone in the 3 stone setting and wear it as a right hand ring.

    It sounds like you really want the solitaire.  I think after 13 years I would want to change up my setting too – nothing wrong with that!

    I just got engaged on Monday and specifically wanted a 3-stone because they are so timeless and classic.  Personally I felt like some of the shapes (heart, pear, cusion etc) are fads and they will fade after time but 3-stones never seem to lose their charm.

    I was actually just looking at three stone bands yesterday cause I’m really enjoying the look (I’m not engaged yet so the I’m still enjoying looking at rings). I don’t think its outdated at all and I enjoy the first picture above. I’m really not a fan of the Halo setting myself but that’s my personal opinion.

    I feel like the real issue here isn’t whether or not your current setting is outdated but that you’ve spent the time thinking about the one that got away. It sounds like you want the solitaire and if that’s what you’ve been dreaming of I say go for it. In the end it isn’t what we prefer. Its what you’ll want to wear and show off in the next 13 years. 🙂

    Also, if you do decide to update- the idea of making your side stones into earrings for your daughter is an awesome idea! So sweet!
