    I personally prefer solitaires because there are more w-band options later!!

    Personally I’d take a soltaire over a 3-stone any day.

    The solitaire is a winner, in my book!

    Based on my own aesthetic preferences, I picked a solitaire

    I vote the solitaire! You can get a guard/wrap for a solitaire that makes it look like a three-stone, but personally, I just love the look of solitaires!

    Have you tried on solitaires and three stone rings in a shop? I originally wanted a three stone (and still LOVE how they look) but when I tried them on IRL to my surprise I preferred the solitaire. And we’re the same finger size.

    Have you seen this setting? I just found it and think it’s gorgeous. Very similar to the one you posted, only it has a thinner band — which would look great imo with the stone size you’re considering.

    I usually prefer solitares, but in this case I think the 3 stone is much prettier.

    If you pick the 3 stone ring we’ll be ring twins! I always, ALWAYS wanted a solitaire and when shopping, my husband really wanted to look at 3 stone rings. Who knew he liked those? Not me! lol. Anyways we tried both and really ended up falling in love with the 3 stone. I just looked better on my finger. I think that’s because my finger size is larger (size 9), but I think you need to try them on. See what feels good on you and ask to try on the wedding bands so you see what look you prefer 🙂

    i like the meaning behind the 3 stone rings (present, past and future).  I originally wanted a solitaire but loved the meaning behind the 3 stone as my FI have been together since we were 14.  He loved the symbolism. Now, that being said…. I ended up with an emerald diamond with tapered baguettes!  so, in the end I guess I’m no help.  Can you order both and return the one you like the least??  just a thought.

    Both are lovely.  I’m partial to 3 stones in trellis settings, so I voted for that.  I also like that the band’s a tad narrower on that one.
