    It realy is a beautiful ring, so sorry you dont like it! do you think getting a fun wedding band you really like would change the way you feel about your e-ring b/c it really will change the look of it.  Wow how did you break the original stone? what if you just change the middle stone back to something similar??  You may grow to love it?

    For what it’s worth, I actually like the bands you have now more than the idea of micropave black diamonds.  I agree that the round doesn’t quite mesh with your current set.

     

    It sounds like you were happy about the ring with the original stone, you just don’t like it with the round.  If you liked it with the original stone, maybe get a radiant or emerald cut?  If price is an issue, there are amora moissanite radiants.

    Another option would be to reset your current diamond.  I think this setting would be great:

    You could still use your baguette bands, and the pave band you’re dreaming of would look great with that setting as well.  I think it’s a nice compromise.

    Go for moissanite!!!

    I’m on the moissanite bandwagon – and i own a diamond – but i think it is so practical… and worth the savings. totally.

    @lilsqueakrr:  I really like the setting and the bands! What would you think about selling the round stone and combining that with some of your money to buy a nice, larger emerald cut diamond? Even an asscher or princess would look nicer. I think that maybe if you had a bigger diamond that made more sense as the center stone, you would love your ring again!

    If you got a pair of really thin micropave black diamond bands, you could wear one on either side of your ering, then stack the white diamond rings around them (if that makes sense). That would look unique and form a megaset! lol!

    Your setting would also look awesome with a colored stone in the center!

    I love your rings bands and all. I do get what your saying about your center stone.  Will a larger diamond even fit? As for grandmas stone,  It would make a pretty solitaire ring or necklace

    @lilsqueakrr:  I really like your rings, I think they look great and are really fun!!! But if you dont like it and dont think you ever will then change it, It sounds like the thing you are most unhappy with is the shape and size of the main diamond, you could just change the stone out for something that you like better! You dont nessisaraly have to do it now, save up for what you are happy with, or go with a different type stone! But I really like what you have now and dont think it looks odd at all
