Just as long as the vent made you feel better.

A setting can be trendy, a stone shape can be trendy, a metal type can be trendy.

The most timeless engagement ring is a white round brilliant solitare diamond on a thin, solid, high polish, yellow gold shank. Got anything else? (I do too), then yep, your ring might look dated at some point. If your different ring has never been at the height of popularity (yet)? You have a better chance of looking more timeless.

2000-2010 was the era of the white diamond (usually round brilliant) in a platinum setting, with a white diamond melee halo. The shank could be plain or melee. The 2000-2010 wedding band was an eternity ring of white diamond melee in platinum.

I think we are heading into a “rose gold” decade now.

I don’t really think any of the rings in the first post are what i would consider trendy.  Certain styles gain popularity every few years, but by and large, the main styles are here to stay.


halos aren’t new.  My grandma has a halo– she was married in 1937.


my mom has a simple solitaire.


My sister has a thick band solitaire.


i have a solitaire with channel set diamonds down the side.


ALL of the rings in my family had their peak popularity times…and they will again.  So yes, I guess I would have to say that the popularity of halo rings may dip, but they aren’t going away…they’ve been around longer than any of us!

I like some halo settings, I got a very large RHR with a halo setting and it actually looks like it could be a antique ring. I doubt anyone could pin point a year it was made. I think every ring is a trend in some way. I picked out my ering and got the classic 6 prong round 1 ct solitaire, super super basic/classic because I wanted a timeless look to grow with I love my ring so so so so much but having a ring like this… theres a ton of other people with the same exact ring ya know, so enjoy having something unique because sometimes theres down sides to having something timeless. It only matters that you love your ring, no one else has to. =)

Oh who cares!  I have a split shank halo. Should I curl up and die?  Hell no because my ring is gorgeous and I love it. So screw everyone’s opinions because it’s only on my finger. And I wouldn’t ever even know it was a problem if I hadn’t been to the Bee. 🙂

@soy:  oh good lord, I completely understand when people are comparing marquis with halos. I’m quite certain they understand as well.  It’s just a comparison of trend vs. trend.

And you can’t even give my old unfasionable marquis some love.

But this was a fun thread. thanks for posting.
