    Trinity rings are classic. Twist and infinity are quite trendy. I’d go for classic and I like it on your hand.

    Love the trilogy on you ๐Ÿ™‚ 

    I have a 1.25 carat solitaire and a trilogy and have short stumpy fingers and I prefer the trilogy 

    I also love the proportion of my antique garnet cluster – in case you are considering an oval 

    I am size 7 for your reference

    aleycat65 :  I agree: trinity rings are more classic than twist bands, and are likely more robust. Also, a trinity ring can be created with a twist band or a twist band can be added to a trinity ring. Ultimately, you should probably go to a store and try on various ring and band combinations.

    I love the trilogy on your hand! It’s nice because its a modern take on a classic with the pear on the sides. Have you thought about bands? What kind of band would you wear with either of them? That helped me decide on a solitaire as opposed to a twist, because I don’t really love the look of a twist band with a twist shank.

    Three stone rings are so lovely. Here’s mine. It’s classic with a bit more interest than a solitaire.

    eevonlimgoh :  These are all so beautiful! Do you by chance know the rough sizes of the stones in your trilogy ring? I’ve also got short fingers and am trying to decide on the right proportions for stones. Yours is lovely!

    aleycat65 :  Hello bee! Both rings are beautiful. Personally, I like the twists bands as well. I am particial to them since my ring is also a twist. They are beautiful, and unique. However, one thing I have expierenced is that occationally the twist will be more likely to have a small diamond fall out since the prongs are so tiny. Make sure to get your ring insured! Our jewler just pops it back in at no charge when this happens or replaces it if it is gone but it has happened a few times. On the flip side, my mom has a classic three ring diamond. It is quite beautiful but one thing I’ve noticed is we have family friends whose daughter happens to have the same ring as my mom! So while it is goregous, it may not be as unique as a twist. Just things to keep in mind but there is no bad choice!

    aleycat65:  Aaaackkkkkk! You just gave me a scare. Are you telling us that you’ve only tried on one ring? I don’t think you’re ready to order! There are so many different styles of settings, and it sounds like you and your guy are in it together. It would be well worth your time to go to a shop(s) and see many rings to find out what really does look good on your hand, and what doesn’t.

    I like the three stone, but I have one and am biased ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

    i don’t like twists as in my experience the stones scratch my adjacent fingers and cause horrible irritation. So if you want to go that route, I’d suggest buying a cheap one on amazon or something, and try it out for a while first to make sure the style doesn’t hurt you.

    Another vote for the 3 stone ring…maybe with a delicate twist wedding band! 

    Here’s mine for reference. I have gotten so many compliments on it from people of all ages, it’s a very classic setting and will grow with you!
