So, our 4th anniversary is in about six months, and I finally get a ring. Yay! We were very poor when we got engaged, so I never got an engagement ring, let alone a decent wedding band.
Sooo what kind of ring is appropriate for an old married lady? 😉 I absolutely love pear halo rings, but I feel like I should try to avoid a ring that looks “engagment-y,” and I should go for a three stone ring, or just a band with diamonds. I’m at a loss – what the proper etiquette? Any suggestions?

I would say there is no etiquette here! You should get whatever you want!! You deserve it! …and those 4 years do not make you old, silly!

As another old married lady (LOL – 6 years) I say go with the ring that makes you happy, you love pear halo so get it. Remember everybody’s (who stays married) engagement ring becomes an old married lady’s ring. 🙂

I think you should get whatever you want!

My mom just got engaged and originally she wanted something super out of the box, but she ended up going with a classic three stone ring. I don’t think you’ll regret it if you go for what’s in your heart. (No etiquette, by the way!)

If you never had an engagement ring proper, then I say it’s about time! Get a set, get that pear halo with a matching band and rock it if it will make you happy! 🙂

I say get whatever makes your heart sing! There are no rules, so get what it is you love.

My MIL (a very classy, traditional, upper class lady) got her “engagement” ring on their 25th wedding anniversary. Before that she just wore a band.
If 25 years ain’t too many for an e-ring, 4 years sure as heck aren’t either! So when will you be posting photos of your pear?

Girl we didn’t have much money either with 2 small kids 15 years ago and hubby just doubled the size of my center stone for our 15th anniversary! You can do whatever you want and enjoy every second of it! And don’t forget to post pics lol

Whatever style you like! I hate how jewelry stores label rings as engagement, anniversary, right hand, etc. If I like the way a ring looks I’ll get it for whatever occasion (and finger) I damn well please.

I agree you should get whatever you’ve been yearning for. If it were me, I’d go big and splurge on a engagement-y type ring this time, then add to the ring for future anniversaries.

Anything you want! Get the set if that’s what makes you happy!

I voted for a three-stone. Those are meant to symbolize your past, present, and future. So I think that fits well!
