    @Splodge2003:  I would go with the diamond as the center stone it makes the colored stones pop a little more. Very pretty ring!

    I voted coloured center stone as that is what i have! I think it makes the colour the star and I love it. But this is soooo much a personal preference thing. You just need to see a few and decide.

    @Splodge2003:  They both are absolutely beautiful to me. I would probably go with a moissy center and rubies on the side but it’s all a matter of personal preference as both are totally yummy.

    I voted color accent stone because that’s what I have, but I like both.

    I love colored center stones.  White/clear stones never really interested me and given the choice I’ll usually pick something bold and colorful as the focal point.  

    My setting has aquamarine accent stones and a CZ center stone.  I like that it has a pop of color but still has a classic wedding ring look.  I may change the center to a colored stone at some point in the future, though.

    In a three stone ring – diamond centre, coloured accents. If it was a halo or cluster – coloured centre stone, diamond accents.

     I voted for diamond center and color accents because this is what I have, but I think both are so pretty and you can’t go wrong!

    Gemstone in the center, diamonds surrounding.

    @Splodge2003:  LOVE it! I think colored accent stones are so beautiful and unique. Here’s my 2.4ct RB K/VVS2 with yellow diamonds on each side.

    @Splodge2003:  I like to have the diamonds accent the gemstone, not the other way around. But it’s all about personal preference. Here’s mine! Just bc I like to show it off 🙂 Forgive the dark color- inside it doesn’t show it’s blue/purple as much.

    Here’s my diamond with black diamond accents 🙂 I specifically asked for a white diamond center stone, but wanted black diamonds involved somehow. I LOVE what my FI came up with!

    SO and I have talked ring designs, and I really want a diamond center stone with gemstone accents. He’s a fan of colored gemstones in general. I slightly prefer blue sapphires as accents, while he’s a fan of emeralds. He has good taste, though, so I’m sure I’ll love whatever he chooses!
