    I love mine.  It is .75 center stone, and .50 side stones in a cathedral setting.

    I have a three stone e-ring too!  I absolutely adore the setting!

     

    Here it is pictured with our wedding bands:

     

    And here is a picture of just the e-ring so you can see the setting:

    Here’s mine. The centre diamond is a bit bigger than the others. Kind of hard to tell from the picture.

    Have you considered using a different shape for the center stone instead of round? You could use a long pear or radiant cut with the 1 carat side stones and it would appear larger. Otherwise you’re looking at somewhere around 8K for the center stone.

    Also, you could check out craigslist or idonowidon’t for “used” stones to save on cost and you could end up spending around 5K (here is a 1.58 center round for 5K plus the setting http://www.idonowidont.com/158-Carat-Engagement-Ring,name,70480,auction_id,Jewelry1000W,qid,,pid,1,pageno,auction_details) . Or put a big blue sapphire in the center (for now?) or a moissanite stone until you could afford the real deal.

    a 1.9 ct for about 9K http://www.idonowidont.com/191ct-Solitaire-in-white-gold-F-color-Si2-EGL-cert-,name,54549,auction_id,auction_details

    I love how you can see all of the diamonds, including the smaller shoulder stones!

    Keep in mind, if you use the diamonds you have as side stones, you’re going to have to match the color/quality in the center stone- it’ll look funny to have near-flawless side stones (don’t know if they are, but…) with a lower-quality center stone.

    Here’s my ring- not the best pic, but it gives you a size idea… My ring size is 4.75, the ring is 1 ct center stone and .5 side stones.

    So my center stone would be your side stones. Not for nothing, but that’s a BIG ring if your hand is small.

    Can you use one of the stones for your ring, then another maybe as a pendant to wear on your wedding day?

    I love my reset and redesigned ring! We used my fiance’s grandmother’s ring and had Philip Press revamp it. Center stone is 0.92 carats, total carat weight of the ring is 1.5 carats.

    I vote for bigger center stone.. although when designing mine I specifically said that I dont want there to a huge difference between the center and side stones.. When I think of three stones I think of our past, present and future and I want them to look equaly important on my finger ;o)

    I also dont mind all the finger coverage lol

    We looked at both ring styles but decided on the larger center stone at the end of the day.  For comparison purposes I wear a size 6 ring and the center stone is just under 1 carat. I love it!

    DreamingOfAPinkWedding:  My (RHR) center stone is 1.01ct. Maybe this will help give you an idea of scale. Size 5.25 finger. Oh, the sidestones are .66 and .72. They were also taken from an heirloom ring! I had it all reset recently as a custom piece. Sorry the indoor lighting is terrible in the photos. I need to take some pics of this ring during the day!
