Here are the choices from moissaniteco:
1. Tiny round petite solitare (1.3-1.5 mm band)
2. Standard round solitaire (still with a small band, but not as small. 2 mm, I think)
3. Shared prong band (1.5 mm) with about 5 side stones on each side
4. The Tiffany inspired novo with side stones (would have to get a smaller center stone to stay in budget though)
I like the thin bands, and finger size is about 5.5, and am looking to get 1.5 ct equivalent or possibly 1.25 if I need to stay in budget.
I have read so much of the threads on here to get an idea, but I just want some bees opinions! Or, if anyone has something similar, can you post pictures?

The first one’s my favourite. I love narrow bands. They really flatter the stone (make it look bigger). Mine isn’t similar, but it does have a very narrow band (1.5mm narrowing to under 1mm on the shoulders).

I like the last one. I love a little bling on the sides and it goes down far enough where it will look like an infinity band from the top. If that’s not in the budget well, then #2 is my pick. I like the squareness of the band. I have a similar band and it’s very comfortable and fits well with bands.

I love number two!! I have the trellis solitaire and LURVE it! I think #2 is super classic and beautiful!

I like #2 but I’m bias because it looks exactly like mine!
I choose that style over the Tiffany because it’s a little bit more low profile. I was worried about catching the ring on things, so it sticks up just a little bit less.

I voted #2… but I think I might have a soft spot for #3 as well !! Its so beautiful and delightfully feminine ! 🙂

be careful of 4 prong rounds, my friend almost lost her diamond because the 4 prongs wasn’t stable enough so she had it reset to 6 prongs. she never wore hers doing anything activites that would make the prongs loose either. just something to be careful of!
they’re all beautiful rings! :]

I ike #2, because it’s classic. #3’s nice too, I love how the sidestones look like they’re floating. I wonder if 1.5 mm may be too thin, though, for everyday wear.

I like the last one the best – so beautiful!

I voted number 2. It is classic and with a stone the size you are gonna get…it is going to pop!!!!

This has helped a lot so far. And I did wonder about the instability of a 4 prong vs. 6 prong. Does anyone else have experience of a 4 prong allowing the center stone to loosen?

@ChickN: I think if you’re having a 4 prong setting, platinum is stronger than white gold.
