    All rings are a trend really…Yellow gold marquis Anyone? Pave….trendy. Platinum…..trendy. Throughout the decades there were always rings trends to be had. My mother wears a very wide yellow gold wedding band with a high set solitaire. To me that screams 70s. But to her it is a reminder of their engagement and wedding and all the milestones along the way. So anything other than a solitaire setting will probably be showing it’s age at some point. Wear it because you love it. And if you do grow tired of it, then switch up . Trendy doesn’t mean bad it simply means In Style.

    It’s gorgeous! There are so many jewelry designs out there…I don’t think it matters what’s considered ‘dated’ or ‘on trend’… it only matters that you love it.

    I have a modern, but always admired classic solitaires.. So looks like I will have both – my old bezel and small yellow gold solitaire ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Your ring is the epitome of trendy. The pave and twisted band will date it. However, most rings that are popular now, including halos, will be dated in 10 to 20 years.

    Mrs.10.9.15:  here is my antique we were talking about. See what I mean. Quite un-trendy right now but I reckon it will look classy on my finger when I’m 90!

    If you get sick of it, you can always have the diamind reset in a different setting down the line — no problem!

    I didn’t vote because I think that your ring is trendy, but I wouldn’t worry about it looking dated in 20 years. IMO, anything other than a solitaire will eventually date – and even then, band styles and settings change. If you ever fancy a change you can always buy a relacement, but your ring is gorgeous and that will always be true!

    Mrs.10.9.15:  Honestly, the only thing that is not trendy and never goes out of style is a solitare. Sure, you’re ring will probably go out of style, but so will all the other rings out there. It’s a cycle. It’s like being able to look at someone wearing a yellow gold marquis cut and tell they likely got married in the 70’s – that was just a really popular/trendy style back then.

    Mrs.10.9.15:  I wouldn’t say your ring is “timeless” because it doesn’t have a classic style IMO. Hoewever, it is truly beautiful. If you’re in love with it now, you will love it even more when you’re older, for sure!

    I’ve been married for 15 years, and I think most modern brides would not be caught dead in my channel set wedding band. But I still love it and I think it compliments my 3 stone engagement ring well. I have a lot of younger friends and my rings are very different than their pave halo rings, but I’ve also been married a lot longer. The trends will change, and in 10 or 20 years women getting married will want a different style than what is popular now.

    but, yes, your ring is trendy. its very pretty also.

    Mrs.10.9.15:  I have a halo so I’m not anti-halo or anything, but your ring kind of looks like a partial halo to me. In fact I almost picked out a ring very similar to yours at one point.

    Also I get what you’re saying but halos actually have been around for a long time and only recently made a comeback. 

    At the end of the day if you love your ring that’s all that matters!

    I think that is a very trendy ring. I also don’t mean that to be negative! Rings from the 20’s are “dated.” That’s why they’re so desirable to us now – because they are recognizable as rings from the 20’s due to their distinctive style.
