There is no shame in changing your mind. Your fi sounds super supportive. 


I dont personally think it looks like an eye but, if it really bothers you-change it!  These are rings you plan to have/wear most of the time, if not most of your life. Be happy with them. 


There is is a dainty ring thread somewhere on here that might have some ideas for you. Some of the rings on that board are truly swoon worthy and so much more practical for daily wear than some of the taller settings jewelers kept pushing at us (I ended up going rouge and asking to be left alone and found my dream set) Personally, I love your sparkly band and the mixed metals! You were right in describing it as very unique and chic!

I think the ring looks great, nice and simple!

It looks about as much of an eye as your other band looks like a centipede…. as in… they dont really look like anything other than nice rings.

Maybe your friends were jealous of the ring and had to associate it with something that wasnt entirely flattering to make them feel better or something.

I think your ring looks lovely and unique, and if you love it you should forget peoples’ comments.

I don’t see an eye there; I see two beautiful, classy rings. If it truly bothers you, then change it, but I think it’s a shame to let the opinions of others change your perception of something you once loved.

Maybe a marquise diamond instead of a round if it’s bothering you? I think it’s a beautiful set, though, and looooove the way that rose gold band looks!

I don’t think changing that stone to a 0.07 to a 0.1 will really alter the look.  I think they were just talking about the almond shape with a diamond in the middle.  It is not big deal, it isn’t even a negative comment!

If you love it then I wouldn’t change it!

An eye? Ok, that’s their opinion. It doesn’t have to be yours. Don’t ever change something you like for something else you think will garner more approval. Stick with your choice.

I love it, but if it bothers you, can you swap it out for a marquis stone instead? Then it would fill the shape more and look less like an eye. My shank has marquis stones set sideways so you can see..

cmykgal :  that set is beautiful! My cousin decided on a band instead of an Engagement Ring and people definitely said things. People will always say things. If you are bothered and feel like replacing the center stone with a bigger one will make you feel better, I saw go for it. But I don’t see an “eye” at all. I see a diamond in a beautiful setting. Do what makes you happy!

I think if you’re happy and love it, anyone else’s opinion shouldn’t really change how you view it, but if it is really bothering you, then I would suggest changing it… especially if your other half is supportive! but don’t change it just cause of what other people say, make sure you really want to make the change!

I think your set is unique and beautiful! do whatever makes you happiest!

My wedding band is similar and I’ve never gotten that comment or thought that about it myself. If you love it keep it.

cmykgal :  that set is magnificent. I wouldn’t change a thing…also, what is it about the comment that bothers you?  if it resembles an eye, what makes that a problem? eyes aren’t a bad thing by any means. if anything, the implication just makes it look more chic and on-trend!
