In my opinion, the three different cuts don’t seem to go together, but that’s just my opinion.  I’m also a little biased, because I prefer solitaires, but why don’t you just use the upgraded ering stone and just re-set it into platinum?  (Or you could have the yellow gold dipped to make it white gold).  The original e-ring would make a great pendant and maybe you can use the stones from the anniversary band and make earrings.  Then you would have your full jewelry ensemble for the wedding day

The first one on the left looks like a radiant cut to me. I would re-set that as a ring in white gold or platinum, and make a pendant out of the oval. I don’t know if you have an e-ring or not but maybe wear the radiant as a right hand ring if you are not looking to chnage your e-ring. Maybe save the anniversary band for a future child if you are having any. Gorgeous rings though!

I love the one on the left! I would definitely reset that one in white gold or platinum for myself 🙂

Since you don’t like yellow gold (but she clearly does) maybe all the gold could be melted down to make a pendant for her, and you keep the diamonds and set them into earrings and a necklace and maybe another ring? I’d use the 2 solitaires and a single from the 5 stone to make a pendant (or 2 or 3 depending on how they’d look together), and 2 per earring from the 5 stone. Like a stud with a dangle then the other diamond at the bottom of the dangle.

You cold take the oval ring, make it a center diamond – then take the round diamonds from the 5 stone ring & place two of those diamonds on each side of the oval & have it set in white gold. Then the one diamond left you could have it set in a necklace.

The first ring on the left I would keep as a solitaire, its gorgeous! Then keep the band for future children or family or use it to melt down for a setting if they can turn it white gold.

What about something like this, with the emerald? cut center stone and rounds from the anniversay band on either side? I like the idea of using the yellow gold as a pendant for your mom and setting the other stones into earings or a necklace.

@ama0219: I would reset the upgraded ering in platinum to wear as you ering or right hand ring. I will set the oval diamond as a necklace solitare. Lastly, I would make 2 three stone necklaces (you will have to buy one stone.) I will keep one for myself and the other I would give to my mom. If you like platinum over the gold, they will give you credit towards the platinum and will greatly reduce the out of pocket cost..

wow they’re so pretty – I would personally melt down all the gold and have it made into a thin but solid bangle bracelet in which I’d space out the five diamonds that are the same size.  The square stone I would bezel set sideways on a 16 inch chain (so it falls at your throat). And the oval stone I would save for a rainy day. Lucky you!

That’s awesome that she is giving you such lovely jewelry. I have no advice, but I wanted to second the idea of turning the gold into a necklace for your mom. I think that would be really sweet and special for her!
