    @Lastmimzy:  Oh, see I like that cluster.  I’m a sucker for a floral cluter ring.  Love mine.  And it sparkles like mad.

    @Lastmimzy:  I’ve never had a stone fall out of wither of my cluster rings.  In fact, one dagtes back to 1917 and has all of the original stones in it.

    I prefer a small solitaire over a cluster, but that’s because the optics of a group of melee diamonds differ from that of one stone. It’s really personal preference so go with what you like best!

    @Lastmimzy:  what about diamond alternatives then? Moissanite is a forever stone just like diamonds.

    I ususally love clusters but that one isn’t my favorite.

    Try looking at the lab created section on the brilliant earth website If you are ok with that! It’s still a diamond if you have an attachment to a diamond E-ring (I do) but they run cheaper! 

    I voted for solitaire BTW

    SOLITAIRE! they looks way better to me. Also, most jewelers have a trade in policy for your center stone. in many cases, you can trade your stone in later and use the original price you paid towards a bigger stone (if you so please). I doubt the cluster would qualify for any trade ins like that.

    @Lastmimzy:  I would avoid clarity enhanced stones. I have heard a lot about them not holding up over time.

    @Lastmimzy:  clarity enhanced diamonds have been know to crack! See my post about brilliant earth lab created diamonds. A quick search I did, you could get an ideal cut cushion, H color, SI2 that was .55 carats set in an 18k white gold knife edge solitaire setting for like 1700. Idk your exact budget, but that’s a good place to start looking! ( if you are like me and don’t give a flying f*** about color bc you can’t see the difference, you can go even bigger!)
