Here’s the deal (hello first of all!! first post on here =) ) Now, I have a .75 stone from my great grandfather, passed down to my grandmother, then to me. I love the idea of having a family stone, and why make my Boyfriend or Best Friend (soon FI) spend more money when there’s already a beautiful stone in the family?
Even before I had the jeweler tell me the size of the stone (I’m clueless with all that), I was really into the design of the settings themselves. I was looking at nice halos, with elaborate bands (see image below for the first ring I tried on and fell in love with — we based our custom design on this one, the custom is currently “being born” haha).
Anyone else here into the design/elaborate setting over a solitare with a band? Solitares are “timeless and classic” I know… but for me, I just fell in love with the elaborate setting and feel they are much more flattering to my hand and overall style.
Any other Bees out there on the same page? Would love to see your pics!!
