What size side stones would you ladies pair with a 1.5 carat round brilliant center? (ring size 6.25)
We’re considering getting something made similar to:
Below is a 7.5mm/1.5ct with 4.0/.25ct sides:
I hope this bee doesn’t mind, but I found a lovely 3 stone pic on the boards with specs, slightly over 1.5 center with .3 sides on a size 4.5 finger (thank you sparklebee your pic is so helpful and ring is gorgeous!)
Ok this isn’t my center stone size, but I couldn’t resist including this one from BTD, a whopping 2.7 center w .43 sides on a size 4!
Here’s a link to moco with other combinations of sizes, except not many with 1.5 carat (we already have that center stone): http://www.moissaniteco.com/moissanite-three-stone-rings-designer-inspired-3stone-ring-c-4_197.html Would be interested in what combination size ppl think is best! If I had the choice I’d prbly have a smaller center stone for adding two others, but I guess ppl say getting bigger than you’d have thought can be a good thing? I dunno, any and all opinions welcome!
Please post any 3 stone pics as well!!!! 🙂

I like the 4.5mm side stones for a 7.5mm center personally for a three stone, unless you want the center to “pop more, then I would opt for the 4mm.
Yssie’s ring is heavenly, and I have every intention of reproducing a ring as similar to her stone proportions as possible in the next couple years! My ring finger is a size 4 too and ever time I see her three or five stone my heart skips a beat. <3

@MrsCassie: thanks for comment! so funny that you recognize that ring! I’m never on the BTD forums, but went over there to try and search for three stones. i never would have guess that many carats would fit on a 4.5 finger!! haha!!!

Well, mine is 1.50ct RB with 0.28ctw side baguettes, might not be what you’re looking for (you want round cut sides, right?). I think my side baguettes could be a little bigger. I voted 5mm sides.
If you don’t mind my sharing:

Yssie’s ring is actually from PriceScope, not BTD, but her ring has been drooled over across the web and pictures for inspiration posted on all kinds of boards! With her setting though, it’s all about that gorgeous overlap you see when looking down at it, and the center stone covers a little bit of the two side stones. *drools*
Lovely ring nktu22! So classic. ^.^

I chose the .33 ct with a 1.5 ct center stone. I like the definition between the sides and the center. The ring you’re considering is beautiful!
My ring has a 1 ct center stone and the side stones are .20 ct. The center stone that came with the ring was smaller than 1 ct, and it didn’t stand out, it blended in too much for me. I wanted the center stone to stand out, so we upgraded it.
Ohhhhh… I miss my rings. They’re still at the jeweler being resized!!! It could be another week or so before I get them back!!

Hey, I’ll trade you some of my .75 carats of baguettes for some of your 1.5 center stone, haha. (My center stone is 1.21.)

@nkwu22: actually i love baguettes! i tried one on in a jewelry store and loved it. it had a very dainty band with tiny baguettes so really like an accented solitaire more than a three stone. it was different and very cool! that ring is still in the running! (how do you ever decide????)
@MrsCassie: hahah that’s awesome that ring deserves to be internet famous lol. for mine to be similar proportions i would need the .25 side stones. i’ve been partial to four prongs, but her six with three on the sides creates a great shape.

I struggled with side stone size too for a 2 ct center…..Go Bigger, when you have a center stone of a 1.50 ct you would be surprised how small you think a side stone looks in comparison…my side stones ar .5 ct…I had the center stone set up highter…actaully none of the stones sit in the mount, I like the side view if the stone as well

I really think it depends on the look you’re going for – three stones closer in size or a larger “feature” stone. Both are lovely but they are quite different looks.
At the jeweller where we bought my ring, their three stone rings with 3 round brilliants had side stones half the size of the central stone.
My ring has pear shaped side stones and these are a third of the size of the centre stone. Pears face up bigger than rounds.
0.45 centre stone, 0.15 sides on size 6.5 finger:
I think your best bet is to look at lots of pictures and see what proportions you like best!

I have the same setting, size 6.5, with 7.5mm center stone and 5mm side stones. I think it’s perfect!
