    Will you wear all three rings? I don’t fully understand what you’re asking.

    If you’re considering having your princess-cut diamond re-set in the setting shown with the round diamond and pairing that with your wedding band, I would have to say that I personally prefer your existing setting to that option.

    @JessMorgan777:  Well, first let me say that I LOVE that new setting- maybe because it reminds me a bit of my own!  😉  However, I wonder if the kite set diamond would look a little odd with it’s straight lines and corners with the rounded-ness of that new setting.  I really love the way your existing setting goes together- what about adding some pave to the band of your e-ring?  That way it’s something new but it doesn’t change your overall look too much.  Unless you want to totally change your look…then disregard my suggestion.  🙂

    I’m so glad you’re keeping your wedding band though- so lovely!

    @JessMorgan777:  Love the new setting, but i dont think it will go with either the princess-cut stone or your wedding band, sorry!

    @Audrey2_sings:  +100 to this 🙂

    I don’t think princess will look good with that setting :/ it wouldnt do much for your amazing stone either. What other types of settings do you like? (Pave?, halo?,)

    i love the new setting but just not with your current band or with a kite setting.

    i actually prefer your current ering and band over the new one.

    if you want something new when you renew your vows, what about a thin plain band to wear stacked or with either your just ering or eternity band.

    Noooooooo. Cry


    I love your ring as is. It would be too fussy with your band and that new setting.

    Your set has to be my favourite on the Bee… and you want to change it! Noooooooo…

    Ok, enough about me. I love your set as it is, and I agree with PP, I think the swirly design of the new ring would clash with your kite setting… the kite setting is awesome and I feel like a swirly, intricate band would detract from it.

    That being said… could you get a new setting made in the same style as your wedding band and mount the stone on top? Even if you kept the e-ring all diamond, I think that would flow nicer.

    Soz, gotta agree with everyone else. I don’t think it’ll look better with the new setting, in fact I think it’ll look weird 🙁

    @JessMorgan777:  hmm I like the new setting but kinda maybe too flowy/fluid to look awesome set with your princess.  but maybe I’m just not creative and can’t picture it because its shown with a round in the setting! It could look good with a princess but I’m just not sure. But I do like it! That wasn’t helpful was it? Sorry! I really love your set though. Maybil take PP suggestions about a pave setting, or, how do you feel about a halo? That could look interesting with your kite set stone.
