I have a round brilliant center with pear side stone and I love it, the symmetry is nice with the delicate pear stones which are at .13 ct each and the center is a .90 ctIMG_4328

I also have a round brilliant with pear side stones, mine is a bit smaller with a .60ct center and each pear is .10ct. Something to consider is the shape/proportion of the pears as well as the angles (for example, my pears are a bit skinnier than PP’s, both of us have small pears and a larger center round, and my pears angle down along the band while other rings have the pears set straight)

Im trying to picture a 3 stone with pear sides as a RHR; to me it would look like another engagement ring. What about the 3 stone with a gemstone center stone, such as her birthstone?

I agree with pp, I would go with the 1ct 5 stone, that would look great as a rhr. I have a 5 stone 1ctw in yellow gold I wear on my right hand middle finger. GL

@mjb2503:  For a right hand ring, definitely go for the 5 stone band. I think most ladies would prefer that style ring for the right hand rather than another engagement-style ring. Plus she’ll be grateful you listened to what she mentioned in the past.

It might be nice to get hidden gemstones inside the band, maybe representing your anniversary month and/or your birthstones?

I don’t know if this will help, but thought it might give you some inspiration. I have a 3 stone ring that has a ruby center and diamonds on the side. Her birthstone in the center with diamonds on the side could be nice. I also wear a 4 stone band ring with it that is 1.74 carats of diamonds.

@mjb2503:  personally i would not mix metals and i actually dont love 5 stones /other anniversary bands that are not eternity and would want the threestone and be totally ok if it looked like another engagement band…i understand wanting this to be a surprise but i would actually consult your wife about her preference

I wear my yellow gold wedding band with my platinum five-stone. I love mixing metals.

@mjb2503:  Does your wife like yellow gold? Does she have other jewellery in gold colours, and if so is it yellow gold or rose gold?

If yes, then mixing metals is fine! I have different wedding sets, one platinum one rose gold and I often mix & match, it’s pretty standard, even traditional — lots of vintage rings are mixed metals. But if she only wears white metals I wouldn’t risk the yellow gold.

I wear rose gold e ring and wedding band on the left hand and white gold half eternity band on the right. I like that they’re different and haven’t had anyone tell me it’s weird.
