    I personally think it’s a little busy with three halos and the band being split into three.

    That style of ring is pretty popular where I live. So obviously not everyone finds them appalling 😃 I bet it is very sparkly! I’d say if it makes you happy you should get it and screw anybody who says anything bad about it .

    I just want to laugh at how equal the votes are at the moment.  5 views for every option.  I think the bee is pretty divided on this issue lol.

    I don’t think being a cluster makes something inherently tacky.  I have seen beautiful cluster rings.

    That ring, however…You know that saying about accessorizing?  How before you leave the house you should look in the mirror and remove one thing?  Yeah – that ring is guilty of over-accessorizing.  You have a triple split shank with pave eternity (or semi-eternity) with a cluster with a double halo.

    It’s beautiful!  I say, don’t concern yourself with what others think. If you love it, get it!!!

    I like it because it’s not something you see everyday. It’s unique and if you like it, that’s all that matters. You will be the one looking at it everyday.

    Not my personal style, but that doesn’t mean it’s an unattractive ring. It is a bit busy. Do you love it? If so, that’s all that matters! There are so many different ring styles.

    I don’t think the bees are that divided on the issue. Three of the poll options are similar and negative options and are pulling in 75% of the vote. I think this ring looks like it’s trying to be something that it’s not. I do love the sparkle that comes from clusters, but prefer the art-decoy, and daisy clusters that are something unique in their own right and don’t look like they’re trying to be something else.

    I say if you love it, that is all that matters!  People are always going to have something to say! Wear it with joy!

    jezzy :  I think if you love it then that’s all that matters. In my honest opinion though I wouldn’t add another band on the wedding day because it already looks like one each side. If you add bands it definitely would be overkill. This is definately a stand alone ring.

    It’s not the style of ring that I would go for but it’s really pretty (as is your hand). Opinions and assholes, though. Who cares what anyone else thinks about your ring as long as you love it?

     jezzy :  too big for me personally, it’s pretty, just too blingy for me, but if you like a ring that big I think a cluster is definitely the way to go, a solitaire that size would stick off your hand like a doorknob. I love how clusters can be low. My ering is also a cluster type style, just much smaller than yours, but its still much bigger than I could have had if I had tried to find a solitaire that’s as low set as my cluster. I hate anything sticking off of my hand.

    I agree with others, a certain type of ring isn’t inherently tacky! It depends more on what your style is, I would say. While that ring is gorgeous I would feel like it was a bit much, considering I’m in jeans/leggings and a sweatshirt more days than not and am going to school for nursing, so that might get in the way. But if you’re more of a glamorous woman than I (not hard to be lol) and you’re fine with taking your ring off for work or have a job that is compatible with a stunner like that, then go for it! You could always get something like that and then opt for a simple wedding band for the days where you feel a little more lowkey. This ring is gorgeous, though, it’s so sparkly!
