One of my friends is looking at settings and found this one at a local jeweler. She can get it at a really good price because the jeweler is no longer going to be carrying this line and it’s an older setting.
I think it’s really pretty but she’s afraid it’s not modern enough.
The picture is one I found on Google as the jeweler won’t let her take pictures. She would be putting a round diamond around 1.25ct in it (similar size to the picture).
She would probably pair it with a very thin wedding band or else wear her wedding band on the opposite hand. Thanks!
Here’s the stock image.

I like it! I’m not sure what a “modern” setting would be though. That looks like a pretty nice twist on a classic solitare to me.

ButterflyButterfly: it’s a pretty ring. But your friend has to ask herself if she’s only getting it for the good deal (and not thrilled with it), or she loves it and lucky it’s at a good price. If it’s the first, she may regret it down the road, no matter how great a deal it was. As for the style, it’s plenty “modern.” What exactly does she consider modern/not modern? And does it matter? styles change and 5-10-15 years down the line, it may/may not be modern anymore.
To to sum up: if she loves it, she should get it. If she’s hedging, keep looking.

pinkshoes: She said you don’t see too many 3 stone settings so that’s what she was concerned about. I think the split shank with the pave makes it modern IMO. She has been looking literally for months and this is the first setting she has really liked.

ButterflyButterfly: I like it! My ring has a similar split shank although without the two side stones.

If she likes it, then thats all she should be concerned with! likevintagelover said, styles change all the time anyways. It shouldnt matter if its classified as modern/vintage/classic/whatever, who cares if there’s a lot or a little settings out there like it only one person has to love it and that’s her.

Looks pretty modern to me

ButterflyButterfly: I think it’s gorgeous, but if she’s not sold on the setting then she shouldn’t get it.

She decided to get it! Her FI proposed with a solitaire (because that’s what she thought she wanted) and he was fine with her wanting to change the setting. My friend is the most indecisive person in the world next to me. I told her it is a beautiful setting but I had to show her this thread to convince her.
Thanks for the opinions!
