    @marriedmyfriend:  Personally I believe that the halo style will show the date of when you got the ring. I know that they have been around for awhile but they are just so prominate now. I think the 3 stone look is classic and wont show the age of when you got the ring.. so you wont be ‘dated’ into a category years and years from now. That being said, that particular halo ring you posted is just gorgeous! I would say do what you love best..

    I love both halos and three stones… but I think I like three stones a little more so my vote is for three stone. 🙂

    Well I am very biased since I am taking my diamond out of a three stone ring and having it reset into a halo setting.  I didn’t care for the way the 3 stone looked with a wedding band. (I’ve seen several ladies on here that have very pretty 3 stone sets – I just didn’t like it on me).

    I think you need to go to a jeweler and try on different rings in person.  There were so many I liked on the computer that I didn’t like in person.  Conversely, the setting I ultimately chose didn’t look like much on the computer, but I loved it once I tried it on.

    I cant tell you what style to chose just make sure you take your time! I had a 3 stone ring and loved it at first but then ended up really disliking it because it was too ” busy ” for everyday wear. I ended up regretting my decision and I did chose it myself as well. I say you go for something you can dress up or down whenever you want. I vote for halo since if you get tired of it later on you can set the center stone in a solitaire. Then again you can get the 3 stone and do the same and possibly turn the side stones into earrings? Usually the center stone in 3 stone rings is smaller though. 

    Go for something you love and don’t worry what others say or else you’ll get a ring you don’t love. It’s so hard and if anyone has had a hard time choosing its me.
