    Didn’t you just have a thread about this? I voted for the original in it.

    Prettybird67: honestly, can’t vote because they look the same to me. Generally, the higher the setting and thinner the band, the bigger the center stone. Hth

    It’s impossible to tell from the photos, because we don’t have a similar view of the original setting.  Also, it appears that you also have a different wedding band (diamond vs. plain) from the band in the photo with your original e-ring setting. That likely would have an influence as well, since sometimes a center diamond can tend to “disappear” (around the edges) into the background of the diamonds in the band(s).

    The diamond is still the same size regardless of the setting so the appearance of a size difference (if there is one) would be marginal. It’s pretty. Nice choice.

    Without a top down shot of the old setting, there is no way to make an accurate comparison. In profile they look almost identical.

    They look the same? Because they’re the same diamond in very similar setting.

    The stone is so beautiful!! Looks like crystillized rainbow

    Don’t see any difference between settings, honestly

    I don’t like high settings 🙁 so I choose the lower one. Plus I don’t think the height of the setting really changes the look.
