Hey ladies, we are modifying and updating my engagement ring … Would lovee your opinions..
Center diamond is .81
Side marquise 8 x 0.15
Pave stones 0.02 each
The mage with the curved band has a 1.15 carat – will this overpower the diamond? I’m in love with the marquise petals!
I have 2 Rose gold bands: my original set.

Well I like the top ring because it looks just like mine! :o) I do think the rings in the bottom pix kind of overpower the cool floral vibe you have in the 2nd ring.

I don’t care for the bands on either side. Everything just blends in and the e-ring seems to get lost.

I actually LOVE your original set, and I am a very blingy person. The options that you are looking to upgrade your set with are very cluttered, and overpowering in my opinion. Sorry bee, xoxo

I actually prefer the original set. I don’t think it’s the band that over powers the diamonds, but the 8 marquises on either side. While the marquise flower design is very pretty, your center defnitely gets lost in between them imo. For the center to stand out, I’d keep the original…..and then get a marquise petal design for a RHR. 🙂

I like it with the rose gold bands although I’d probably only wear one of them or wear them stacked together instead of on either side of the e-ring. The curved band is pretty and fits nicely but the milgrain doesn’t coordinate with the smoothness of the e-ring. The final option with the marquise stones is BEAUTIFUL. I really don’t like marquise SHAPES with little round stones in them, I prefer to see actual marquise stones. These however, seem to overwhelm your center stone so I’d pass.

I love your original! To me, it’s very very hard to actually tell what I’m looking at in the 3rd and last picture. The 4 marquise on eaxh side makes the center stone get lost and it actually hurts my eyes😮 Sorry!

I agree with the other bees… I love the original set!

I prefer your current set. You said the new setting in the pics is shown with a larger diamond, and I think it gets lost,so yours definitely will being that it’s a little smaller. What about keeping your original ring and having the small diamonds the petal shapes replaced with marquise diamonds??

Is the first pic your current set? If so, IT IS STUNNING and I like it way more than the other rings

I prefer your original set. The upgrade looks cluttered to me.

I have to say….your original set is much more appealing and cohesive. The second set just looks bulky and all meshed together. In this case I’d say if it ain’t broke don’t fix it…. your original set is truly beautiful…. but if you’re in love with the second ring perhaps get it as a rhr? Or a different band to go with it.

I’m sorry, I think your original set is much prettier than the upgrade.

Your original set looks so good and totally balanced! The new is not bad but the petals do seem a bit lost with the curved band. I was surprised I prefer your original because individually the new rings are so beautiful to look at.
