@ladyamalthea: I noticed the side view of my promise ring a lot, so I’m designing my engagement ring to have a not-boring side view. I personally hate the look of just regular ole’ prongs. I’m extremely picky, though, and have yet to find a side view of an already made in store ring that I like, so I’m designing the ring to have an interesting-ish view from every angle.

To me, the side view of a ring is more important than the top-down view. My first engagement ring had a very intricate side view and I adored it, and my new one (custom-designed) has an intricate one as well, I wouldn’t have had that particular ring made if the side view wasn’t one I loved.
@joya_aspera: +1, I always notice my own and other peoples’ side views of their rings since I seem to see them from the 45-degree ish angle!

The side view of my ring (which is coming next month) is 90% of why I picked the ring. I love a beautiful detailed ring and I will see that part of my ring the most! Here’s a pic, but I’ll have an OEC center stone.

I didn’t even think about the side view when I picked out my ring. I don’t think people really see it when they look at your ring unless they stand there and examine it.

I thought I would pay attention on the side of the ring (not like it’s a fancy setting) but I noticed I look at the surfce of the center stone a lot more. I love how it looks transparents when i type at work.

I notice it all the time. I absolutely love how my ring is clean, simple, modern and classic at the same time (it’s from the 1920s). I dislike about 90% of rings because of their side view. in fact, it made it super hard for me to find a wedding band.

I LOVE the side view on mine and wear my wring on the top just so I can still see the side as I work ect..

I notice the side view quite a bit, and it definitely played a part in choosing my ring.

Mine is hearts so I thought it was cute but I didn’t care that much. I’m drooling over some of these amazing side views.

Not only do I never notice my rings side view (which has nothing special), I’ve never even thought about how I wanted it to look from the side (except that I didn’t want a cathedral setting which is more noticeable from the side) and I’ve never seen anyone else’s side view. When someone shows someone else their ring, they put their hand out so you can see the top. My friends have to tell me when they have things like peekaboo diamonds. And then the wedding band covers it.

The side view on my ring is pretty basice. I didn’t pick my ring because of it, but I also wouldn’t have chosen a side view that I didn’t like. I thought it was nice and simple. I didn’t want anything super elaborate because I figured I wouldn’t see it much/it would be covered by the wedding band later on. I notice it sometimes/probably fairly often, but I don’t focus on it as much as the top of the ring. [image removed at request of user]

Side view was very important, which is why I couldn’t get a solitaire. I just get too nervous that one stone sitting high would snap right off the band.
