@careymeaway:  I have a cathedral and personally love how elegant it looks in profile view. I found most basket settings looked bulky.

Also I believe wedding bands will sit flush with most cathedral settings which is a bonus. Not sure about baskets.

Im a 4.75 ring size with a 1.3 cathedral setting. At first i thought i wanted a basket but the cathedral just adds something more and I love it. And it looks like it would bring your side diamonds closer to the eye which i like. Both are beatiful though!

I don’t have a solitaire but I prefer the cathedral. I just think it looks more balanced.

For me the baskets seem to look a bit like… an afterthought on a plain ring, kind of?

I started out with the 4-prong (no cathedral, no basket) which is what I thought I wanted, and my fiancé and I decided to change to a basket/cathedral band with a hidden halo, which has a better design. Best decision ever! My diamond feels more secure and looks even bigger. Here are pics of the new ring and then both side by side.o
