@soontobehisbride:  First off let me say your Ering is drool gorgeous…. At first I did notfully get your question but now I think I see what you are talking about.  I think a round or princess cut stone could possibly allow more coverage and will fill the gap between the center stone and prongs…. 

But honestly you do have a beautiful ring Laughing

I know that if something bothers you about your ring it won’t likely get any better. Yes, you might stop looking at it with such a critical eye – but if it’s bothering you enough to figure out how the other stones will look 5 months in, then why not change it?

You need to be happy and if your Fiance is willing and doesn’t mind? What harm?

You’re right, some posts about this topic do get heated, but I wouldn’t give it any mind. You have a valid question, don’t second guess your right to ask it on this ring forum.

Beautiful ring! I cannot wait to hear what you decide. Smile

@soontobehisbride:  I like your ring the way it is. Radiants are less common and very sparkly. I’d keep it. You won’t notice a huge difference in size if you change the stone, unless you get a larger carat one. Yeah, some stones face up bigger than others, but I don’t think that doing a straight swap will suddenly make everything better.

@soontobehisbride:  It’s your ring, do what you want with it. Tell your Fiance that you like the look of the other stone better. The diamond/ring are only symbols of him wanting to marry you so anyone who throws that in your face is the superficial one, in my opinion. I think the round stone will be perfect in your ring, btw. 🙂

Your ring is gorgeous but you should do what makes you happy. 


Just some info- I just upgraded to a new ring that has a 1ct princess cut center stone with a cushion cut halo and I also have spaces between my center and halo. A larger stone might fill the space a little more but unless you get the same shape as your halo and a larger stone, I think the space will still be there. 


Here is a stock photo of my ring that has it with .75ct center. Mine is still being sized so I can’t post pics yet.

Your setting is so pretty. The princess stone would be gorgeous in it!

Beautiful ring!!! I am also a fan of halos that are flush with the center stone. That was a “must have” when ring shopping. I even tried on a ring with a double halo and there were gaps between each halo…yikes! 

I appreciate that it’s nice to have a different type of stone to stand out from all the same that’s out there. Your ring is SO unique though…so you do stand out in a good way already. It’s true that the round and princess stones show a much larger face than the radiant (thanks for teaching me that!). If the gap bothers you, change it!! No cost?! Amazing. And it’s still the same ring, the setting is the same. 

Good luck with your decision! 😉

They are all damn beautiful to me.  Pick the one that ‘speaks’ to you, lol, if you know what I mean.  I can’t even pick a slice of pizza without picking the one that ‘speaks to me’.  Ugh, nevermind.

Round!!!  Your ring is lovely and I think the round looks really nice in the setting!
