Beautiful! 

If your heirloom stone is smaller than a carat, what about a graduated 5 stone band? Blingy and substantial, but won’t detract from your wedding ring.

Another vote for a substantial diamond band >3mm to use as your engagement ring! 

Here’s a 3 mm rose cut band I wear sometimes

Just to clarify, are you looking for an engagement ring/solitaire-type setting or a band setting for your diamond?

@sociallydistancedbride:  Congratulations on your marriage!! I’m about to sound totally corny and silly here, but I’m going for it, anyhow …

I have been such a ball of stress and anxiety ever since COVID started. I’m sure I’m not the only person who feels that way, too! Hearing stories of people living and moving forward with their lives, dreams, and plans during this time makes me so, so happy and hopeful. And it makes me happy and hopeful to hear about people experiencing joy and excitement in their lives during COVID, too. Thank you so much for sharing this with all of us!

OK. With my sappy side out of the way — LOL. Your band is GORGEOUS!! I love it. Did you go with yellow gold for your wedding band? The design is super pretty, and I love the delicate details and the shape of the band.

In terms of an engagement ring to go with it … Any stone that is larger may cover up some of your wedding band design. That’s just the nature of having a setting with a slighty higher and larger central stone. If you don’t want it covered at all, your best bet would be to do a diamond/gemstone/diamond+gemstone band for your engagement ring. If you decide to go with a more traditional-type solitaire setting, your band details will still be visible to you from the side. They would just be hidden from the top view.

Another way to make your band and engagement ring stand out as separate rings would be to use mixed metals, like platinum or white gold for the e-ring with yellow or rose gold for the band. But that would depend on how you personally feel about mixing and matching metal colors.

@sociallydistancedbride:  I love it in the yellow gold. It looks rich and beautiful, and it goes so well with your skin tone. It looks amazing on you. I think any solitaire or even three-stone would go well with your band. It’s such a pretty piece that it is going to be gorgeous with anything.

@sociallydistancedbride:  how big is the center stone of the solitaire you’ll be wearing, and what shape? Without specifics I agree with a graduated 5/7 stone to not detract from the band unless the stone is 1ct and under. Anything a carat and under shouldn’t really detract from the center stone (excluding elongated shapes like emeralds, radiants and ovals)
