@booEXcore:  I wondered the same thing.  I think Halo’s will stay in style though, because they made the ring look bigger, without your man having to spend too much to give you an amazing ring.  My ideal ring would be over 2 carats and just be a brillant diamond, it just screams classic…

I do think that wedding dresses will be like this though.  It is so trendy right now to have the fit and flare or mermaid ALL LACE dress with sleeves.  I think that will scream 2010-2015 dresses.  Ball gowns are coming back in and I think they weren’t as popular recently, but now they are the big trends of 2014, according to all the high end designers..

A shabby chic wedding is very 2010-2013

LAce and berlap is very 2008-2012

Nuetral color bridesmaids, and mismatched is going to be very 2013- who knows…maybe it will stick around??

It might. Lots of styles of jewelery are reminiscent of a certain time period. I don’t consider it “dated” because I have a feeling halos will still be around, though we may be on to a new popular style.

Personally, I don’t care. I chose a draped halo because I love how it looks. I won’t care if in 20 years someone thinks it looks so 2014.

@booEXcore:  Meh. Don’t know, don’t care. 

My Henri Daussi cushion cut diamond and micro pave band may be popular/trendy right now but it will always be well crafted and beautiful regardless of the current trend.

What’s so terrible about a ring being “dated” anyway? I think having history is charming and lovely in its own right.

Perhaps.

However, I didn’t choose my ring with other people in mind and I don’t think I will give a shit what some 20 year old thinks of my ring when I am 50. If I love it that is all that matters and if I don’t then it can be changed. Just like home decor, cars, hairstyles, clothes, makeup trends, etc.

Of course a halo will date your ring! But does that matter?

My Fiance and I designed our setting ourselves and it love my solitaire. It may still end up looking dated, who knows! But even if it doesn’t, people will know when I got engaged/married from my age I think! So I’m just not worried about it either way.

Like others have said, almost every style of jewelry becomes dated, as do dress styles, home decor colours and styles, etc. If anyone expects to look back at their wedding pictures in 20 years and wants them to look current, they will likely be disappointed. Likewise, the vast majority of jewelry given for the holidays will be dated in a few years, too.

The big question is who cares? If the style is what you love, then embrace it and be glad it isn’t so hard to find. Personally, I love looking at wedding sets and imagining what time period they are from, or what their history is. Almost every style has had a time when it was more popular, including marquise cut stones, three stone rings, princess cuts (especially with sapphire side stones), coloured side stones, yellow gold, very wide yellow gold bands, cluster rings, etc. Just like “Journey” pendants, past-present-future pendants, DBTY, and now bar necklaces and bracelets have been popular in waves, that doesn’t mean that those pieces won’t be just as pretty in 20 years. They will just be reminiscent of a previous time when they were more popular.

I think it is trendy, not because it is the type of thing that will go “out” of Style. They are beatiful and a beautiful ring is a beautiful ring!

they are just exceedingly popular at the moment, so I think that whenever you have something like that it will undoubtedly somewhat date the ring. 

Ex: stunning yellow gold marquis ring. Beautiful then and now, but more than likely an 80s ring bc that was such a popular ring then

@booEXcore:  I don’t really understand why it matters if it’s ‘dated’.  I got engaged in 2013, nothing is going to change that.  I’m getting married in 2015, nothing is going to change that either.  I’d rather wear the ring as a badge for our years of faithful service.  ๐Ÿ˜‰

Umm, no. And honestly, I don’t care. My ring is fabulous.

Maybe but in 30 years Halos will probably be the trend again at that time anyway.  Like a PP said I do not mind if my ring indicates that I was married in 2011.  That is a fact and I don’t want to change that .  I love my ring today and I plan to love it 30 years from now.

No, because I have a halo, and I was married in 2002.  Some people upgrade.  I really don’t care if it dated it though.  Halos are timeless, dating back to the 20’s.  Because it is such an old style, people may assume it’s an heirloom. ๐Ÿ™‚

Solitaires can date someone, just the same as a halo because of their metal color and stone shape.

^ Call me crazy, but I LOOOVE rings like that! I love seeing them, and a LOT of people who were married around the same time I was have them. I don’t have one like it, although I wouldn’t mind a RH cocktail ring along the same style.

The one and only time i every had ring envy was when a coworker had an elaborate, yellow gold, marquise stone puzzle ring. It was just so stunning, and I so wished that mine had been so interesting. I haven’t seen said coworker in years, and I wonder if she still wears that ring.

It might look “dated” in others eyes but if you love it then it shouldn’t matter. My dream ring is a halo and I can’t imagine anything else for myself. Most of my friends have solitaires or three stone.  It’s all about what makes you happy.
