So I’ve been looking, and looking, and changing my mind constantly about the e-ring. SO is getting impatient, he sais I better pick soon or he will get me something like this lol
Anyway, I went to the mall to try some on and found that I really like the look of a solitaire on my hand. But I would love something with a twist. I would like to get your opinions on these two rings (my ring will be all white gold, round brilliant 1ct moissanite). I am a little bit concerned that these photos show larger stones than what I want, and that the prongs may “swallow” the stone. What do you think?
If anyone has 1 – 1.25 ct solitaires with a “twist”, I would love to see them 🙂

Ooo these are both lovely! I think a 1 ct. would look great with either, but I totally understand what you mean – I wanted my prongs to be the bare minimum.
Although I LOVE the basket of the second ring, I think the prongs make such a pretty flower shape on the first one – I’d be tempted toward that one. But even if you went with a standard solitaire, you could have something fancy going on on the basket beneath!
Mine looks like a standard micro pave solitaire setting from the top, but I’ve got a custom basket beneath with little milgrain-edged flower petals 🙂

AnutaBee: I also wanted a solitaire with a twist… I used the second ring as inspiration for my custom head to go on my ring. Here’s a video of it… 1.25 “carat” FB OEC moissanite, white gold prongs and bands, and diamonds on the band and on the head:

I also wanted a soiltaire with something “else.” Mine looks like a solitaire from the top:
But has a halo ‘hidden’ underneath. I think in jewellery jargon it’s called a “crown.” (sorry, this is the CAD drawing, but it shows the design best.)

I know your fiance is getting anxious, but I highly recommend checking out Maevona. If you’re not positive about one of the rings you saw, you probably aren’t in love with them. If you check out this company, don’t give too much crede to the images that look like clunky drawings, try to find the actual ring images, they are so much nicer and delicate in person. Some are pasted below in a picture, but there are many more on their website that are cool and twisty. Mine will be a pave version of the one on the far left, so please be nice with comments .

And sorry, I didn’t answer the original question because I immediately thought, ring with a twist = Maevona.
To answer your question, I don’t think the 1 carat will be swallowed by the prongs, regardless. They’re gorgeous, and look well balanced for that size stone.

I have a .71 round solitare with a unique twist my hubby and,I custom made together. I know its not a 1carat or WG but it will give a idea 🙂

I voted tulip as it’s so elegant and unique – I couldn’t stop staring at it! I don’t think it’ll swallow the stone as long as the band is white.

mine’s got a reverse knife edge on the shank, 1ct…a little bit of visual interest

Mine is a 1.23 carat solitaire with a slightly unusual setting – the band kind of wraps aroubd the sides of the diamond. I love how it’s a little different, and it’s also very low set which suits me well.

I love the twist of my solitaire! I say go for the solitaire it’s classic, classy and can be one of a kind. I’ve never seen the tulip prongs done around like that so it’s the one I voted for!

Both rings are beautiful; I like the trellis a bit better.

Thank you all soooo much for your reponses 🙂 I think SO likes the tulip one. Honestly, I think I will be happy with either one of these, and as I can see it’s a tight race

Both are gorgeous but I like the tulip more, just seems to have a little something about it – just personal preference

I like the tulip but both are beautiful. Here’s mine, its one carat and has engraving on three sides.
