    You could go up to a .5 if you’d go down to a vs1 I don’t see the point in getting internally flawless on such a small stone.

    I like setting #3. 

    Something to consider (that you might fully be aware of then disregard) but a D IF rock is going to be very expensive for a feature you cant see with the naked eye. I would think about an E or F and vv clarity if you wanted to save some $$ or go up to a .5 carat. 

    The visual difference will be negligible. But hey if your heart wants D IF… rock on with your flawless self.

    peonytuliplove:  I love the first one! Then again, I’m a sucker for bows. I can’t wait to see which one you pick! The stone sounds gorgeous!

    I like that the twisted one looks different, without distracting from the stone. I think it’s the most elegant of the three.

    Also voted for second one since it’s not too busy nor plain.

    peonytuliplove:  I agree with some of the posts about your size and quality choice. If you do go with with that size then band three is the best bet because you don’t want to take away from stone but if you decide to get an F or even G quality diamond (which I have) which allows you to get a bigger stone then you can go with the other bands. I like band #2;)

    I voted no.3.  A D flawless diamond deserves to be the focal point and I think 3 would show it off best.

    MrsBuesleBee:  +1

    the money spent on a flawless rock will not be seen. I have an SI2 and the cut and clarity are high enough that you can’t see any flaws when looking at the stone. Even going down to a vs1 would allow you to purchase a bigger stone for the money you’re spending.

    peonytuliplove: I really like both option 3 and 1! It all depends on what you like, I myself have always gone for intricate rings as that’s my style, but classic settings like the third one are also beautiful for being effortlessly gorgeous! I’m sorry, I ended up getting confused too.. Go for what gives you butterflies and makes you excited, that’s what matters. ^^ (I think I’ll still vote 1, it’s very pretty!)

    peonytuliplove:   I like 2 and 3 best. I have a smaller stone and I actually prefer them. I chose a .25 instead of a 1.25 because the smaller stones fit my personal taste better. So don’t go lower stats for a bigger stone if you dont prefer a bigger stone! get what you love!!

    I like the twist shank…it’s a happy medium between the two.  Something a little bit visually different but not overwhelming to the stone.

    I like number 2! My future SIL has a simmilar setting with her .35 and it looks great!
