If you’re going for a diamond and on a budget, then I suggest you buy online, but of course, it can’t hurt to look around for some inspiration and try them on at stores or something. Mine have a 0.71ct Emerald cut diamond as a center stone, but it’s 1.06 total weight. the ring size is 3.5. We boughy the diamond from adiamor, also had the setting cuatom made by them.

Daisylovex3: My memory is less than perfect but the centre is .27 and the total is well below 1 carat. It looks tight but isn’t, my finger is just fat (size 9)  so them’s the breaks.

Used a mono filter because it shows the setting detail best. Another option with a tight budget with fingers that need more coverage is a setting with more going on, rather than a halo. Will post some suggestions from my etsy obsession photo bank.

Mine is just a little over 1ctw. My center is a .72 G, SI1, very good cut. The total is 1.14 tcw. Size 6.25. We purchased from a local jeweler. But the designer is Luminar Creations. Good luck 🙂

Ring size is 5.5. Center stone is .3ct, 1tcw.  This is an old pic, bit my wedding band matches the knife-edge side stones. Bought from Reed’s… I’m pretty sure the set was less than $3k. Never had a problem with any loose diamonds.

nicole18:  this looks exactly like my ring! The prongs and width of the band is what make them very similar.  Very beautiful choice 😉

Anyway,  mine is a bit over 1ctw but it’s a 1.14ct cushion w a 1.8mm band from Blue Nile (size 7)
