I don’t have a cathedral setting to show but just wanted to say one thing to be aware of if you have diamonds on inside of the shank (like that one in middle top there) is that they can damage a wedding band flush to the ring. You would want a spacer or something if you got a ring like that. Also the first ring on the top still has a donut so the wedding band also won’t be totally flush. You will want a setting that has a flat band around ring at a height that matches your wedding band (before the head/prongs start) if being flush is important to you!

I have a 4 prong cathedral setting and loooove it! My center diamond measures ~7 mm, so this should give you a good idea of what your next ring could look similar to. Here are some photos:

Here’s my 6 prong cathedral solitaire with side diamonds. My band is 1.9 mm, so more on the petite side. My finger is a size 6, and the center stone is a .71 carat diamond. I hope this helps!

Here’s my oval (sapphire) in a cathedral. It allows a straight wedding band to sit flush.

6 prong tulip catherdral in 14k rose gold setting with my Amora gem. Personally I love the cathedral with the tulip basket, it feels like it gives it extra protection but adds to the rings shape.

I have a halo cathedral with diamonds on the shank. Fiance actually had the cathedral put in and i love that he did. it does allow the band to sit flush and I don’t have to get a weird cutout band or curved band.

ETA: my friend has a little stone on the inside of her shank and I think it’s cute. I don’t think it’s a diamond. Her birthstone I think.
