Oooh I love it!  The difference is amazing!  It was lovely before, but it does look just perfect in your set now!  And how cool to have not had to entirely reset your ring!

Congratulations – so happy you like the result!

I have the exact opposite issue though, albeit with a solitaire. While I love how the thin shank looks (mine is supposedly 2mm, but I think it’s actually thinner than that, and it tapers to even less at the bottom), it’s SO uncomfortable! Not only does it spin from side to side, it also flips up and down, and the flipping drives me NUTS. So I’ll probably eventually change the setting to something wide at the bottom and tapering at the stone. 🙂

It looks great!  I did the same with my ering, went from 4mm to 3mm.  It is amazing how much more your stones pop and are the highlight of the show!
