I think yours looks better. 100%

It looks like the band that goes around the diamond is in front of the prongs on your setting and under the prongs on the other setting. Did you want the prongs in diamonds, too?

I think it’s beautiful! I actually really like how it turned out.

While I definitely prefer the design as it is, they didn’t make the ring you asked for and you have every right to go back to them and have them remake it.

aurorabride :  That would bother me too. I think the differences are major and if I could have them fixed I definitely would. I prefer your inspiration photo, and I’d be very upset with the jewellers because they made a totally different design.

That said, your current ring is absolutely gorgeous!

Mate you paid like $2k for it yeah? I feel like…you need to understand the thing isn’t going to come out perfect when you pay rock bottom prices

What’s the saying? You can’t ask for champagne on a beer budget? Or something like that.

The ring looks fine.

Am I the only one who thinks the prongs are wonky? That’s what I noticed when I first opened the post and saw the pic before reading. If you do send this back to fix the basket, I’d point out the prongs too. Hopefully bees can chime in too and either confirm the prongs are unaligned as I’m seeing it or call me out for being crazy 😅 I do like your basket more than the original but it definitely sucks that they screwed up. I’d contact them to see what they say at the very least even if you end up not changing it.

I like yours far more than the inspiration. As a bonus, yours looks less likely to snag on everything.

I think it’s beautiful and prefer it over the inspo! Congrats on your new beauty!

aurorabride :  I can see the difference. But to me this looks pretty minor, even though I can see what you are talking about. It’s certainly not something worth changing in my opinion.

I love your ring though. It is stunning. And I agree with PPs that your current design makes the center stone shine more.

Another vote for it turned out better this way! So sorry they didn’t clear it with you, but I think it looks just perfect!
