@Future_mrs_mac:  I don’t notice the difference in the shanks, they look practically the same to me so just want to reassure you of that but I can understand if you’ve spent so much time looking at it you would start getting bothered about differences-but to me the shank is a minor difference 🙂 I do see what you see about the prongs though. I don’t think they need to be so large, I guess they’ve sort of overcompensated if the last ring was loose. If you’re really not happy I would give them one more chance (third time lucky!) to get the prongs right 🙂


its beautiful though!! And congrats on your engagement!!!

They look very very similar to me. However, the second stone looks a bit yellower.

Is it possible to get the old style back? It does look very different.

I see the difference and I personally like the first one better – maybe you can go back and talk to them?  The only thing is – I don’t like rectangle cushions, so if that’s what you prefer, then that’s a nice rectangle cushion.  Also, maybe the 2nd ring is just safer for your stones?  IDK, I’m sorry you’re upset – I would go back and talk to the jeweler.  :/

@Future_mrs_mac:  i see what you are saying.. especially wth the prongs. The original looks far more delicate. But the new one is gorgeous too!

I might be in the minority here, but I didn’t even notice that the band in the second photo was different from the first one until I read your post (although I can see that the stone/prongs are clearly different). They are both beautiful, but if you aren’t happy with it I would get it fixed, since you’ll be having to look at it for a loooong time. I totally understand why you might like the appearance of pave/delicate prongs, but the second one will likely stand up to more wear and tear. (I’ve experienced diamonds falling out of both my pave halo and anniversary band in the past. It got so annoying that I don’t wear my anni band anymore, just my chanel-set wedding band with my e-ring. I will admit it’s not quite as sparkly, but I don’t have to worry about it at all!)


Congrats on your engagement btw 😀

I didnt notice the difference between bands before I read your post.

I think that your ring is beautiful though!

I would either return it for the first one (if you were happy with it) or return it and ask for a refund altogether if you’re not happy with the jeweler. They should rectify the situation until you are happy with it, however that ends up being.

I prefer the first diamond.  I’m a bit confused but is there anyway you can get it back?

I’ve been looking at the two pics for at least a min straight and can’t see the difference Undecided
