    I like the thinner band…however, in Blake’s instance, I think it’s a bit too thin in proportion to the diamond size.

    That thing is gorgeoussss! I seriously lurvvvv big oval diamonds but my bf doesn’t like the shape. Bummer for me…but seriously-that looks amazing. I voted for the cathedral setting…I don’t know if it’s an option but I’d probably bring down the carat weight just so the main stone can stand out even more!

    So exciting! I voted for the second option, but I personaly LOVE lots of bling. It all comes down to what you personally want from a ring I guess. But you really can’t go wrong with either option. That rock will look stunning no matter which setting you choose! Good luck 🙂

    @Melithehoneybee:  I LOVE a more simple setting for an oval shaped diamond. The diamond is interesting enough. No use in muckin up the look with bling and shapes all over the place.

    I like the three thin bands because I think it complements the gorgeous stone without overpowering it.

    Wow, that’s an absolutely beautiful diamond!  I LOVE ovals — they’re so elegant!  I personally like the thicker band better.  It looks sturdier, and looks more appropriate with a diamond of that size.

    I think the second setting has way too much going on and would detract from the beauty of your center stone. I vote for the solitaire with side stones!
