    Looks like yours has a bit of a halo effect. Very pretty!

    Yipeebee:  I was thinking the same thing lol. Your ring is pretty, OP. Who cares if it looks dated to others in 10 years? As long as you love it, that’s all that matters.

    It’s really beautiful. Don’t worry about what randos will think two decades from now and just enjoy your beautiful ring now!  πŸ˜€

    It has a lot of trendy elements, but if your marriage is still going strong, I don’t think it will matter. Many women have e-rings that now look dated, and that’s cool. It will bring back memories of how happy you were during your engagement!

    I think there’s something quite antique-y about it so I voted no trend. 

     

    I have a ring that’s 100 years old so I’m sure has been trendy/not trendy/in fashion/out of fashion many times but my man bought it because a great diamond is a great diamond any decade! You can always do a reset in 20 years if you like but that diamond will always be yours.

    I think halo rings are on-trend at the moment. But they have been around for ages, so they are also timeless and “antique-y.” So I’d say they’re a bit of both. I don’t think they are trendy like the yellow gold marquis of the 80’s because that is so unique to that period, halos seem to belong to every period (Princesse Diana’s ring is a halo, hello).

    I would say that your ring is ‘trendier’ than a halo.

    That is not to say that it isn’t pretty (it really is!), but it is a style that will be able to be easily pinpointed to a specific decade in twenty years or so.

    Mrs.10.9.15:  I think your ring is trendy. It’s like a modern twist to the classic halo setting. But I do think it’s gorgeous! I have a plain shank halo setting, and yes halos are a trend right now. This doesn’t bother me at all, if I don’t like my ring years from now, then I’ll have it reset. I figure I will probably go with a 6 prong solitaire setting, since that is my idea of a classic timeless ring.

    I’m surprised you would think it isn’t trendy with all that pave. Sorry OP, but I think it will definitely date because of the pave and the shank design. I don’t think that’s a bad thing though! Trends are trends for a reason! People like them because they are beautiful!
