Just an out of interest poll, beause everyone loves a poll 🙂
If you were going to go with a three stone ring which included a pop of colour, would you use the gemstone as the centre with diamond accents, or would you have a diamond centre with coloured accents?
here is an exmaple of two ring’s that caught my attention:
Edit to say it doesnt have to be rubies, any gemstone you prefer!

@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!
