I have a shank band that will look like that, see how it look. I vote for B, as it adds a hit of color to stand out, but not so much that it will contrast with things.

With the new info you’ve posted, I’m leaning toward B.

This is because in the original you posted, A had diamond wraps as well as the sapphire side stoes before getting to the shank. I think that is way too busy.

If A won’t have the extra wraps on the shoulders between the split shank and the side stones, then it’s pretty even for me.

I would say that it depends on her style. A is a bit more bold with the color choice. It’s also larger (you’ve got 3 stones sticking up on your hand). B is more subdued and takes up a little less space, it’s just a hint of color.

I think it’s down to her style. You know her, what does she wear? Does she go for really bold fashion choices, or does she like more subtle things with just a small pop?

B for sure. Unless the number 3 (the 3 stones on A) has a signifigant meanining in her life for some reason.

A for sure (I didn’t read any of the posts after the first one with the pictures, though)

I can’t bring myself to pick one. I just don’t like either of them. They’re too busy in my opinion. I think these need to be simplified down.

If you going for it, may I make a few suggestions (I’m using the most recent update as my reference)? You need to tie together the parts to make this flow.

1) The setting shows the three center stones perfectly verticle. Have them tip the two side stone away from center (see image below). The side stones should tip away from center. this provides a much more attractive view from the side of the shank (like looking accross the fingers) rather than just seeing prongs. 

2) Replace the round side stones with pears. The pears will repeat the open shape you have in the band. The pears will help your design flow. Have them tuck the pears under the main stone, so above, you see just a frame around the diamond. Like below with the rubies. Also, watch the proportions of the center stone to the side stone to the band.

3) Milgrain can always be added. i think it is adding too much distraction in your design. I would take it out. Your future Fiance can always add it. 

4) Don’t use standard basket settings for the stones. The rings below have interesting side views that add to the overall design. Something like the second one would repeat your heart center stone, but will require your maker to work with the prongs to create that shape. {again, see the proper tilt of the side stones on both rings below? }




5) Please make them finish the prongs so they are dainty and pointy. Below are perfect prongs for a heart. The tail prong is not a sharp V, but curved and softened to make a little heart? It is also perfectly matched to the other prongs.

I vote for B. I think the sapphires in A would overpower the center stone.

I agree with some of the other bees that I can’t really bring myself to pick either one because both are so incredibly busy. It’s hard to focus on one single thing. A little more simplified is usually better even if you only choose to take off one element off the ring. I actually really really like both suggestions made by

B. Since A’s pink sapphires may be too busy and muddy the color of the center stone.
