I usually prefer vintage style and generally don’t care for three stones.  However, I’m not particularly feeling that vintage-style ring (however, that could be because I’m not a huge halo fan and very picky about them – my vintage leanings are more in scrollwork and milgrain being the focus than halos).  Given that your aesthetic normaly doesn’t lean towards vintage-style, I’d go with the three stone.  I think it’s also going to give you more options for bands to pair with it, as well, that will both go with the ring or can be worn separately.

 Three stone. Simple with the added twist of the layered bands.  I like the bolder, clear sparkle of the diamonds on the sides as opposed to the glitter of a halo but then I have never been a big halo fan anyway.

I think that the 3 stone setting will also allow more light through the sapphire in the centre. My only query is the security of the side stones as there does not seem to be too much holding then in place. With my clumsiness and lifestyle I would want a couple more claws in those.

I am normally not a halo girl (or a three stone ring girl), but I am the proud owner of a Victor Canera e-ring and the quality of his work is outstanding – get that halo!  It will look absolutely gorg with that sapphire.

1st one, especially if you are looking for something completely different than your original ring. Both are gorgeous though!

I like both of them but I think they very are different personal styles.  The 3 stones are timeless to me and you can wear almost any kind of band with it – plain, eternity, 5 stone, vintage.  VC does incredible halo’s though.  If you have a good size center stone, it will be a pretty big ring so if you have had a solitaire for many years and like the simplicity of that, you might find it to be too much. You could always have a center sapphire 3 stone or a diamond 3 stone with sapphire pears if you are looking for something a little different.  I have a sapphire 3 stone in a vintage look and I love it.

I definitely think the vintage setting is my favorite. It’s very unique and will be stunning with a sapphire. I feel it is more special than the 3 stone setting.

Go with the 1st one!!! Stunning and unique! 

The three stone is nice but doesn’t have the WOW factor for me.

Are they custom-made? The vintage one looks very similar to mine, but I had mine made by David Klass without a halo (based on a ring on Erstwhile from 1910 that did have a halo), with milgrain instead. So if you love it but aren’t into the halo (I am not a fan, personally), maybe you could have them tweak the design to give you only what you love.

I had the same dilemma with my ring! I also have a sapphire as the centre stone as well. I ended up going with a halo setting because I thought the sapphire stood out more being surrounded by diamonds. What ever you do go with your gut and which ever one you are drawn to more. It could help to try on some similar rings with a saphhire centre stone to see what you like better on your hand. I always thought I wanted a three stone ring but when I saw what my saphhire would look like in a halo setting I changed my mind. Looking back on it now though I would have probably been happy with either setting, halo or three stone.

LekiliRN :  I think the three stone ring with the sapphire center and pear-shaped diamonds on the side would be gorgeous! Not a fan of the halo.

I absolutely love the 1st vintage style ring! And knowing that you are going to be using a sapphire I think it would look amazing in that ring. It would definitely showcase the sapphire and be a timeless design!
