David Klass’ latest masterpiece from his facebook page. A tulip design setting  like this for a solitaire would be lovely. (I am kind of obsessed w/ it right now – love his attention yo detail)

I think it’s nice as is. If your only going to wear it when traveling then I wouldn’t put anymore money into it.

mrssloan2013:  I agree with this statement. <br /><br />OP, if it’s just a stand in for travel, stick to the simple look. 🙂 I love your real ring by the way :).

Yeah it it’s for travel I would skip a blingy setting and leave it. Or get a more delicate solitaire mount with thinner band and prongs.

Theamerella:  To me, $2K on a stand in ring is crazy expensive but I understand that everyone’s finances and priorities/wants are different. But in saying that I don’t think it’s worth spending any more money on a stand in ring just for when you are travelling. The more you spend on it and customise it to your ‘ideal ring’ the less comfortable you will feel wearing it travelling and that defeats the purpose!

OneDayMrsL:  This. The best part of my stand-in is its “throw away” nature. If anything happens to it, oh well, $30 down the drain. If I spent quite a bit on it, I’d start worrying about it more and that’d defeat its purpose.

Unless you really hate the current setting, I’d just keep it as-is!

TheGridMonster:  Mine cost about the same! I thought that was the whole point of stand in rings!
