Custom doesn’t need ot mean extavagant, it means YOURS.  Your setting is made to your exact specifications and made for your diamond! My ring is custom and while it isn’t the most orginial design is was made for my oval sapphire’s exact dimensions, the profile and band were all designed with me in mind.  Your ring is lovely. 

It couldn’t hurt to open the shoulders… it also might add a bit more interest to the band.

I think it’s beautiful!

My custom ring is pretty simple by most standards, but it’s exactly what I wanted.

Is your taste usually more simple or more ornate? I’ll echo a PP’s comment that it sounds like you designed your ring for the practicality only. If that’s not the case, then there’s no need to feel it needs to be any different because it’s your taste and what you like. 

I too had practical concerns about the wearability of my ring, and wanted a very low set and secure solitaire. But my practical concerns also line up with my taste, so I wouldn’t have wanted anything different. I don’t see my ring as plain in a negative way because it’s exactly what I wanted: a sleek design that features the diamond and the platinum setting.

I think it’s stunning. Classic, simple, and elegant. My e-ring is a plain 14 karat white gold band with a low set 1 ct moissanite round gem – 4 prong. When I see my friends e-rings that have MUCH more bling (and weight) I think maybe I made a mistake, but when I put my ring on and I remember what it symbolizes, I smile at my choice. You won’t regret getting this ring if it fits who you are <3

Hope this doesn’t turn out as gigantic as the preview is showing me! This is a pic to go with my comment.

I think your ring is beautiful.  It looks very sturdy and the stones are secured.  I’m not clumsy but I can be rough with my rings.  I sometimes bang it on the counter or table and sometimes even the wall when I swing my arms a bit.  The stone does sit a bit high.  It has the milgrain on the band. I have a princess cut 1.2 center.  Size 4.5.  Sorry, the pictures are huge.  I have no clue how to make it smaller on this site.

mikuru :  The one thing I have to sacrifice by doing the princess cut is the shine. Rounds allow light to enter so they shine far better, but I was set on having the princess like my mom’s wedding band so I’ll suffer in silence haha! So it probably is better that you went with the rounds they will shine like crazy!

I think your setting is clean,classic,beautiful and if it feels right to you and suits your personality then you should stick with it.

it’s pretty! if you lean more toward vintage or want something added, try engraving and/or milligrain (not sure how to spell that one.) 
you can keep the low profile and add some zing with these things (that’s what I did ;). 

but if you like simple, I think it’s gorgeous.

Your ring is elegant! Mine is similar but with milgrain edges (that I LOVE!) and I have never ever felt my ring to be boring. Ultimately though it is what you like best and my ring was chosen by my fiance without my seeing it in advance, so it has a lot of sentimental value to me which may be part of why I love it so much.

Mine was custom made with the same idea – low profile, flush placement with a wedding band, very simple. It’s a classic solitaire on an 18k rose gold band – boring to some perhaps, but timeless and perfect to me!

mikuru :  Don’t forget that the CAD is only a drawing of the ring.  When you see it IRL and it’s beautiful and sparkly it will be completely different. 

If you aren’t sure, I’ve seen similar rings in jewelry shops.  Go try them on, if you have already, try more on! 

I am a big believer in keeping the big ticket item (usually E-ring) fairly classic and plain.  Then you can always add more unique wedding band/eternity ring/stackers.

mikuru :  I think it ticks all the boxes regarding everything you said was important to you.  It is also timeless and classic and it doesn’t really go out of style.  Sometimes you have to be practical for your lifestyle or else you will never wear it.  It is a traditional look but still has some bling and I think looks really pretty.

I think it’s really pretty. For me the only change I would do is I would do channel set princess cuts in the band also, since the center is princess. I just love the look of channel set princess stones! But the rounds are pretty too. It’s really up to you and what you dream of having!
