I don’t know about Jared’s policy, but I just wanted to say that I love your ring! It’s timeless and classic! It also showcases your stone nicely! Best of luck with whatever you decide!

A major advantage to your current, cathedral-mounted setting is that your wedding band should sit flush against your e-ring.

i love your setting! what don’t you like about it?

i think it’s like when you buy a car. you take the hit for the depreciation, unless you have a store that accepts trade ups. but usually you still have to spend double the original amount on the new ring.

what styles are you looking at changing to?

@Ice_cream:  I ran into the same problem. I picked out my own setting but it was made for an oval stone and set for a 2 ct diamond so when they told me I could have it made for a cushion with a smaller stone I had visualized it looking like this dream ring I’ve had in my mind for years. So when I saw it in person I was taken aback. It wasn’t anything like I had pictured it . he picked up the ring in oct 2012 and I went back a few weeks later to see what could be done.jeweler told me to wait until after holidays to see if it would grow on me. It still hadn’t so I went back and ultimately had them change out whole setting, keeping only the center stone. I am paying for this ( i refuse to make him pay more money since i picked out the setting)and it will cost me  $900. Sad thing is, I’m trading out for smaller stones in the halo and sides bc I prefer that look better. Im still waiting on my new ring to come in and totally sweating it. But my whole thing is, if you and fiancé are okay with changing I would do it now while you can.youll be wearing it for a long time. Also, keep in mind that price all depends on new setting you choose and im sure you lose money for changing out as well. Hope this helps.

I started with a cathedral setting and switched to a bezel. It’s much more practical for me. It did cost some money. The original setting was 500, and the new jeweler only got 100 in credit for the gold. I love my ring now, though. It was quite the process!!!

I just want to say that I love your current setting!  I had a plain solitaire setting, a little wider than your traditional Tiffany-type setting and it was $400.

I just wanted to say that I think your ring is beautiful and very classy. I think the cathedral mount is so pretty because the wedding band will sit next to your ring and I always think that’s the best look!

I’m just curious as to how your Fiance feels about this?

@Ice_cream:  Gasp!  Cathedral setting is what I specifically wanted in my ring setting lol..!  Why don’t you like this setting?  It lets the stone sit a little higher up so all the light can reflect into it 🙂  I love your ring!

PS.  How on earth did you land such a cute username and it wasn’t taken??

@Ice_cream:  Actually yeah, mine is cathedral-set but Fiance specified to have it lower, so I’ll always have a teeny gap between my e-ring and my wedding band.. but I actually like the gap haha.  Makes it stand out that it’s 2 separate rings.  The only way you’ll really have the rings sit flush is if the e-ring band itself is thicker before the prongs start.
