    I voted for the twisty one because I don’t really care for 3-stone settings. But it’s your ring, it’s up to you! Everyone has different styles and preferences, that’s why there are so many options!! Smile

    Ditto to what kira said (man, are we in tune with each other, haha).

    I felt bad when I took the poll and voted for the twisty one, and not for the “man i love” one. Ima bad FI.

    Also, the more I look at the twisty one, I realize mine is like it, only straight. Yes, with smaller diamonds too =)  This may have affected my vote.

    @katiedee: Haha yes, bad FI!! Kidding, obv, but my boyfriend knows my #1 rule is “No 3-stone settings!!” (#2 is “No princess cuts,” in case you’re interested, lol). I’m a jerk.

    I have ring just like that twisty one!!! It was a promise ring from my high school boyfriend. mine wasn’t that pretty though.. the diamonds in the center created a flower… 17 year old boys have interesting taste

     

    HOWEVER, I think the setting is beautiful and I choose that one!

    As a girl with a twisty setting, make sure they have matching wedding bands available. We are currently trying to buy my wedding band and it is a nightmare! We have to order a band made from scratch to match it, and they “aren’t sure” what it will look like until they draw up a sketch. I’m so, so nervous. I keep telling FI that life would have been so much easier with a normal band, lol! He says thats not what he wanted. Here’s a photo..

    Thanks! I do love it, but it is tricky to match it. There are some that “sort” of match, but leave some space – which doesn’t bother me. I would just get them soldered together – but FI refuses, he insists that it has to match (oy). I think its definitely fun to get a unique design, but give youself plenty of time to match a wedding band! And I agree – wouldn’t you think that the stores would carry matching bands for every e-ring band? To be ordered, I mean. Smile

    I think I’m in the minority – I like them both, but I think I like the three stone one a little more.

    I have a twisty ring!  Second the difficulty with a band, though many come as sets, including mine from Gabriel & Co.  Now if I wanted diamonds in the band I’d be set, but instead I’m having a custom plain band made.  Either way, I love how classic yet unique it is!

    Both are beautiful!  But I lean more towards the twisty one since it’s unique and really pretty..  But I also have a twisty “I love you ring” one so I am already used to them..  But I agree trying to find a matching wedding band might be difficult if it doesn’t come in a set.

    Woo hoo! Ring shopping! 🙂 Yay!

     

    I like the twisty one, but mostly just because I think the past-present-future ring symbolism of the 3 stone one is better for a different occasion (in my mind–many of friends have this style as theirs).

     

    The twisty one is also really cool.
