My wife didn't want a ring with diamonds all around. It's not very practical given her busy life with the kids, she worried about scratching things when she grabbed them. Plus why waste the "bling" on the underside of your hand where you can't see it?
That said, the ring is beautiful, the only reason for four stars instead of five is I feel that the five diamonds across feel a bit wide, if there had been a 3 stone option with 3 similar sized (but perhaps slightly larger) stones I would have maybe gone for that. The 3 stone rings all seem to be geared toward a large stone flanked by a pair of smaller ones.
