Hi everyone I’m a new bee and need your help! I am looking to upgrade my engagement ring and wedding band. My husband and I can’t afford thousands of dollars right now so I was thinking of getting a setting and putting a Asha as a center stone until I can afford a diamond. (I do not have anything against Asha I just have never seen one before and have always had diamonds) The engagement ring I have now is beautiful but very small and I am sick of people asking me if it’s a promise ring =( I know I shouldn’t care but I feel every woman wants people to drool over there engagement ring. I have small short fingers I think I’m a six so any advice one size would also help! Here are the settings I’m considering.

@Pinklilly: New rings… fun!!! I love it! 🙂 Personally I prefer the first one… Brilliant Earth. It looks very seamless and just flows. Even though the diamonds are the same size in the James Allen… the James Allen one looks a little bit less substantial to me, not sure what they would look like online though! I’m not a fan of the Blue Nile one… can’t put my finger on it why though!!! The last one – the halo – I really like, but you need to make sure you can fit your wedding band underneath if you don’t want a gap. Still like #1 the best! Let us know what you do!!!! And post pix!!!
What does your current ring look like? I am sure it is beautiful!! Maybe you can use that diamond and put it into a necklace or something? I think you should be 150% thrilled with your set so if you need to change it to feel that… do it! 🙂 Good Luck.

@greatgatsbygirl Thanks for all your help! I was leaning towards that one myself, With a 1.25ct round asha. My ring now is a six prong tiffany knife band with .30ct The diamond is beautiful! I wish we could afford another tiffany but I just can’t justify it right now. I am going to take your idea and use the diamond in a different way =) I am also so nervous buying a ring online that you can’t try on first! So nerve racking! I will keep you all posted to which one I pick and I will definitely post pic’s!! And if anyone can give me some advice on which synthetic diamonds are best that would be great!

They’re all beautiful choices, you really can’t go wrong. I lean towards the third ring (BlueNile) as I really like the Cathedral Setting. Just a personal preference. 🙂
As for Asha, I’m sure you’ll find a wealth of information about it and other stone options on this Board.
Best of luck! I hope you find something that you’re happy with and that you love.
