So I’ve finally picked the ring I want and my boyfriend went to talk to the jeweler. I’m getting a round 3 stone with 1ct in the middle and .5’s on the sides.
I really love option #1 for many reasons. Mostly I think it’s so origioal, I’ve never seen anyone with it & its just my style. I also love how the center stone has 6 prongs and gives it a round look and the side stones are 3 prongs. The jewler will have to custom make this setting for whatever reason.
option #2 is my 2nd choice. I love it too but I feel like its more common, I’ve seen it at all the jewelery stores.
Is it important to consider your wediing band when choosing your e-ring?
I know the gap is a matter of opinion, some people like it and some don’t. I feel very strongly that I want a straight wedding band for the fact that if I want to wear it alone without my ring I can. I’m not sure if that is even important or if i ever would wear it alone but thats the way I feel about it right now. I feel like I don’t mind a gap but then again there is no way to try on option #1 before I buy to to see if that would bother me or not. Option one would definately have a gap because the setting around the center stone is so curved. I’m also assuming if I got a straight band with diamonds on it with option #1 that they would rub and that would be bad for both rings. Is that the case?
Option # 2 I can wear a straight band and there will still be a gap but not a very big one.
Is it important that I figure out what kind of bands can go with this ring now? OR should i just get the ring I love and worry about it later because something out there has to go with it right? I guess a plain band could always work but I’d really prefer a diamond band.
Does any one ever wear their band alone with out their ering?
Does anyone have either of these rings?
I need to figure this out to move on in the process…
Please share your experineces and if you are happy with your gap/no gap, curved/straight bands. I’d love to see gap picturesof all kind of rings, but espically with 3 stone rings.

I like 1 as well and i would deal with the wedding band later. If you like the gap, GO for it. You’re the one wearing it who cares about others personal opinions?

Oh I loooove option 1. Gorgeous trellis setting! I doubt you will have much of a gap, unless your center stone is huge. However, I think gap preference is sort of an individual thing and I don’t mind a small one.
ETA: If you get a diamond wedding band, they won’t rub against each other. That setting looks high enough that the wedding band will sit well below the diamonds in the ering.

I loooove gaps! I think they are so celebrity-looking. Haha, I wish I had a gap with my set!

Are you having whiteflash make it? If so, tell them what you want to do with a wedding band and they can help make sure it will work and not damage anything. A three stone can be made to have very minimal gap.

I hate gaps. I much prefer ring sets that are flush and look like an actual set. That’s just me though.

My bands gap and I don’t care – I love them each on their own and together.

I really don’t like gaps, but it really is all about what you like.

I have a gap. There was no way around it with my e-ring, unless I got a curved band which I did not want. Thought I’d hate, but I love it. Go to a store and try on rings that are similar and try on bands with them and see if the gap annoys you or not

I’m personally not a fan of gaps but I do wear my ering alone. I work from home so of the time now I just wear my band by itself in the house and to run errands. If I’m going out to dinner, meeting up with friends or family, I wear my ering too.
But keep in mind you could always have your actual wedding band be a contour band to fit your ering and get a 2nd straigt wedding band to wear alone.

@showmethebling: The basket on #2 is gorgeous! I hate the center prong on #1. Great rings!

Yay for three stone rings! I just got mine, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. My wedding band is currently out being sized and redipped, so I can’t show you a pic, PLUS my stones, while the same .5, 1, .5 ratio as yours are princess cuts, which makes them sit flush slightly better. My band has a teeeny gap on the sides, but sits flush with the center stone. I think either option will be fine, and I personally love the gap.

I like your #1 option better as well! Elegant setting.
Here’s what I did, I got a ring I loved, then had a contour band made for it. When I don’t want to wear my whole setting, I have SO much fun stacking straight bands, mixing rose and white gold. I love jewelry, so soldering my wedding band to my ring, and just getting other bands to wear alone was a great option for me 😉
