    I like the one you have. It even provides more coverage than the other ring you posted. The stone may be bigger, but the original stone and setting look bigger.

    Looking at your ring, I thought it was like a half carat or more! It’s 0.2 in the center?

    @alsgirl:  Firstly, get that thing appraised. Why on earth are there no stamps? Seems very very sketchy!

    Secondly I get what you meant, changing just the centre stone, and I think the .33 ct is a perfect and moderate upgrade. It will look fantastic in your ring! 🙂

    @FutureMrsHallam:  It’s really strange, but there isn’t a stamp on my ring, either. It’s definitely 14k gold, and there’s a stamp from the jewler, and then an unreadable stamp- which doesn’t say 14k.  My wedding band has a stamp- and yes, I know- it’s totally odd for any ring to not have a stamp.  But it happens…

    @MrsEME: My white gold 14k ring has a stamp that says 585 – is that possibly what yours says? It took me sooo long to figure out what it meant! But Id say an unreadable stamp is very different from no stamp whatsoever?

    I love the one you have. The setting is beautiful and looks so elegant on your hand! The solitare is (dare I say it) dull. Your ring is unique. But in this case what we all think doesn’t really matter, it’s what makes you happy that matters.

    @alsgirl:  Haha thats too smart for me 😛 This was a good few years ago I didn’t know what it was though.

    I wonder if the plating was just a bit thin the first time round – hopefully you dont have so much trouble as you did with the first – how ridiculous!!

    @alsgirl:  I think the bigger stone would give better proportions- it would look fabulous!

    Have you checked with a jeweler to see if you could upgrade the stone? With the way that setting is designed, you might not be able to fit a much bigger stone in the place of your current center.

    @FutureMrsHallam:  ohhhh now of course I want to look lol– but I don’t have a loupe!  I’ve looked under a microscope before- kind of, but maybe if I know what I am looking for it might be easier to see!!  Thanks!  I learned something new!

    I think it would look amazing with the .33 ct center stone, but definitely check with the jeweler to see if it can be done! It would suck to get your hopes up and then have it not even be possible.
