I bought a shared prong band with round diamonds to match my princess solitaire, and naturally I am questioning my choice.
I love the look of the shared prong band with a solitaire! However, one of my friends was over recently and she has a channel set band with princess cut diamonds in it.
I tried on her band and I was surprised at how much I like it. I love the sleekness of the princess cut band, plus the diamonds match my solitaire. It is also much more practical than the prong set band as obviously, there’s no prongs to catch on anything.
So what do you think? Please note that the princess band is too big but the picture gives you an idea of how it would look with my ring. Both bands are the same carat weight. Please excuse my gross nails – I was doing yard work.

I like the shared prong better with your ring.

@SnowInApril: I much prefer yours! The second doesn’t come across as “sleek” as you called it. I think it looks slightly chunky. Don’t question your choice its fabulous 🙂

Thanks! Maybe the channel set one looked sleeker in person!
Sorry for the enormous pictures! I tried sizing them down. Nice dry skin.

@SnowInApril: i really like both of them with your ring. that’s the beauty of having a nice solitaire.
would you ever just wear the the band alone? (i do). maybe that will help you decide. which band do you like by itself?

@SnowInApril: I just feel like the channel set band takes away from your e-ring instead of enhancing it.
congrats on your engagement by the way 🙂

@SnowInApril: Shared prong!! I think the channel set looks dated.

No one has suggested a prong set princess cut band? I do like the prong set round better than channel set with your ring though!

I got round claw set with my 3 stone princess. Its the prong look but the claw fills in the gap to make it look more straight to match the straight edges of the stone.

Whoa big pic, the tiny gaps aren’t noticable in person, it just shows super close up!
