I am resetting my ring and have narrowed it down to two options. Ultimately I will make my decision based on which setting is going to be more secure for my center stone as the reason I am changing the setting is because I cracked my current setting when I caught it on something. There were a lot of variables that went into it, but it needs to be reset.
i have discussed this with my jeweler and it is important to me that I end up with a ring that I can wear all of the time without worry. I’m curious which setting is more appealing to the Bees as I really like both settings for different reasons.
Pic 1- this is the setting my sister loves. I like it because it has the wow sparkly factor. My concern is that it is too traditional and i see sets like this quite often. With this set, my mom’s 5 stone band would be reset to be straight like the one in the picture. Also, my 5 stones are actually smaller and would be much closer to the size of the diamonds in the e-ring band. I would also wear the floral band in pic 1 with this. set. The floral band in pic 2 is not the one I want.
PIC 2-on my pinkey in this picture is my current ring. On my ring finger is the new setting with a cz stand in center stone. The curved band is my mom’s original band the floral band is the one FI will be getting me for our band. I would like to wear all 3 rings together. I like this set because it is different, I feel like no one else will have a set like it. My concern is that it is too different. It also reminds me more of my mom’s original setting. In one way I like that I don’t have to change my mom’s band, at the same time, her band is very “pointed” and has always seemed dated, very 1990’s to me. I tried the straight band with it and I did not like it at all.
in both cases, I will be doing something else with the trillions. I have not decided what. I am not setting them into the new setting as the entire ring is too heavy with them and I am having issues with spinning that I can’t deal with. My center stone is 3.1 ct and not comfortable at all if it spins.
