Originally was choosing between the Renee and a cathedral setting, but now it’s between the Renee and the sol238a with an OEC. Does anyone know how their filigree rings hold up? I thought I’d read somewhere that they seem lighter and flimsier (flimsyer?)– more flimsy than other types. I’m having a really hard time choosing. If I went with the Renee, I’d choose a simple band, and if I went with the solitarie, I’d choose more of an intricate band.
These are the rings…
Or the solitaire 238a

It’s not they are flimsy…The antique rings that are reproductions are made from original molds. The shank part of the ring isn’t as wide or as thick as the rings are today. I have the Agatha model in 14k yellow gold with an OEC. It is absolutely beautiful! Now, the antique inspired rings are made according to today’s standards. So, the shanks should wider and thicker. Hope this helps. If you are interested I can take a photo of my shank to show you what I mean. It always helps to see a ring in real life.

If you go to http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/moissanite-oec-arrivedpic-heavy you can see one of the photos I posted has the bottom of the shank in it. As you can see the shank is thinner. But, by no means can I strecth or distort the gold with my bare hands.
