After I got engaged – but before I got my ring – I thought I wanted a solitaire with pave band. My sister was out and about one day and stumbled upon a costume jewelry shop. She bought me a CZ solitaire with pave band. I wore it around a bit and I ended up getting bored of it. Turns out it wasn’t really the style I desired. In the end I went for something a bit blingier. I would suggest doing something similar – why don’t you buy some CZ examples of what you want (not amazing CZ’s, just some cheaper ones) and see how you feel wearing the two different styles on your finger? You don’t have to go out in them, you can just wear them for a couple of hours in your house or if you’re running errands and know you won’t be seeing anyone you know.

TO @MrsTVLover:  thanks, useless trivia that comes with being ancient.

You said… I’ve never heard of a trinity ring

And that is the point… It isn’t called a Trinity Ring because it doesn’t refer to the Holy Trinity.  It is called a 3 Stone Ring… or a Past, Present & Future Ring because that is what it represents.

I may be biased but I love solitaires. For me, I just love how the focus is on the center stone.

Here’s a pic of my beauty:

I’m 25 and I would be happy with a 2ctw round three stone(1ct middle with .5sides), but I wouldn’t say no to a 1ct round solitaire either! (But right now I’m feasting my eyes upon a 1ct emerald cut with a halo)…

I know how you feel. I was torn between solitaire and halo, and I also really loved 3 stone rings. I ended up going solitaire, but I think I would’ve been happy with any of them. Try not to over think it (I know, way easier said than done).

I have bigger hands and I’m all about the finger coverage, so I opted for a three stone. Fiance really doesn’t like the look of solitares, so that was a plus 🙂 Here is mine:

@Timshel:  I originally thought I wanted a 3-stone ring … Until I tried one on.  It looked awful on my hand!  I have really small hands and tiny fingers, and I felt like the 3-stone ring was just overkill.  (I wear a 4.25, and that’s even a little big on me … I just wanted to make sure it will fit if my fingers ever swell!)  

I stuck with a lot of other things I really wanted in an engagement ring (Tacori setting, white gold, emerald cut diamond, diamonds along the band, thin band, etc.), and ended up finding the perfect ring the first time my fiance and I went ring shopping.  

This is the most recent picture I’ve taken of my ring/manicure (on Saturday):

Of the two rings you posted that you’re considering, I’d definitely lean more toward the first one. It’s important to try some on, though, to see what works best for your hands and overall style!

@Timshel:  both rings you posted are jaw dropping. I love the symbolism behind the three stone ( future, present, past). But in this case i really like the first ring you posted. Like pp, i think one will jump out at you when you try it on. I changed my mind a million times before finally deciding. what seems to look great online or on others will look totally different on your hand. Good luck! Cant wait to see what you get
