I am looking into getting a quad or cluster diamond ring as a birthday present. I have been looking around online, and have found ones I like, but want to see them on a real finger!
Does anyone have a cluster ring or quad ring they would be willing to post pictures of?

I dont own this one but it was one of the contenders.

I love clusters!!! The artsy type that is meant as a composite, and not meant to pretend to be a bigger stone, as with fake prongs. I own two little ones and my e-ring is a type of floral composite ring too.

I have a cluster engagement ring and adore it; it’s an antique-style flower shape with micro-pave halo and shoulders. TCW 0.66, ring size 5.5:

@Amanda26267: My e-ring is a quad centre princess cut ring I chose out myself 🙂

@VallieC: That is so lovely! It almost looks like lace 🙂
I don’t know what to call mine, it’s not even a composite. As in, it’s not even meant to look like one big stone.

@icetea: Here’s an example:
It’s basically where there’s a composite centre (ie made to look like one stone) with prongs around the whole ‘stone’; eg the one above is quad set so has 4 stones set to look like one stone, and then has 4 large ‘prongs’ around it. Those prongs aren’t doing anything other than adding to the ‘illusion’ of it being one stone. Some people don’t like them because they think it’s trying to make the ring in question look like something it isn’t ie a larger centre stone rather than several smaller ones.

@icetea: So “fake prongs” might not be the correct term. Perhaps “illusion prong” prong is better? Anyway, it means prongs that are put in place to look as thought they are holding a large stone, when in fact, they are not holding any stones, as the center consists of a cluster of stones held by small prongs you can hardly see. I personally love clusters for what they are, and I prefer not to see them pretending to be a larger stone.
My composite ring that is designed to have that vintage look:

@Scintillante: Thanks!!! I totally see what you are saying. I have a cluster quad ring (stand-in) and was wondering if mine had the illusion prongs lol. It does not 🙂
