    It is beautiful and I think you should leave the shank plain as you have alot going on…make sure you get a matching plain band with the same design as the shank on the e-ring…it is really nice

    Keep the shank plain.  It adds a nice contrast.  As far as double prongs go, i love the look of them!

    i think there’s plenty of bling without diamonds on the sides! it would take the focus away definitely. and if your jeweller thinks it’s safer to do double prongs, it’s probably a good idea. you’d hardly notice them with that design anyway 🙂

    I’d keep the shank plain to keep the focus on your gorgeous center. Did the jeweler mention a reason for suggesting double prongs? If it’s to make sure the stone is secure, I’d do it. Otherwise, your ring is beautiful as is.

    I like the shank as is. I think more would make it look too busy.

    Double prongs, if done right, can look gorgeous. I like double claw prongs. If they are bulky they can overpower the stone. Did the jeweler suggest it as the stone is larger?

    I think adding diamonds down the side of the band would take away from the design. I definitely think you should leave it as it is, I love it! Double prongs could look really nice, too.

    @Milk and Honey:  Your ring as is has a vintage feel to it, and the milgrain will enhance that. I do think more diamonds down the side would take away from that look and the overall “vibe” of the ring.

    Double prongs will give a bit more protection, but I would suggest you remove your ering for riskier activities anyway. No prong can guarantee against damage!

    I’m in the minority, but I think diamonds running down the side of the shank would look great. I’m biased though, I really dislike plain shanks. I think they looked unfinished in many cases, this one included. I also love the look of double prongs.

    Edit: I would definitely keep the milgrain if you add diamonds. You can do both, and I think it would look gorgeous.

    I would definitely keep the shank plain and would go with the double prongs if that’s what the jeweler is suggesting to keep your stone safe.  They look nice as well.

    Wow, what a ring!  I’d leave it as it is, but add the double prong if it would make you feel more secure.

    @obsessivebee:  Totally agree!

    I think you should go down the shank also, I think it would make it look more complete. Beautiful ring!! 🙂
