There are many ladies on the bee with quad center stones. I think they are just as lovely!

Hmmm hard question.

Do you love the ring?  I think if you love the ring, you shouldn’t change it.  Try to take some pictures, I’m sure it’s beautiful.

Acceptable to who? Personally, I think engagement rings are like children … I’m not interested in anybody’s but my own, no matter who great it/they might be. My head has never been turned by anybody’s ring, ever. But that’s just me. I’m really happy with my ring and though it’s not everybody’s cup of tea (it’s not a diamond) I couldn’t care less what other people think of it. 

Also, it’s confusing that you picked it out and are now feeling insecure about it … why the change of heart? Did someone say something, or did you read something somewhere that made you change your mind?

I personally prefer the solitare, but the quads are JUST as beautiful.  I don’t think either one has more of a “head-turner” effect.  I have a friend that is engaged and her e-ring is sooooooo GORGEOUS and unique.  It is also a quad in the center, but it’s designed like a flower.  Geeze I wish I had pics to show.

I think quads are lovely too!  The price to get the same size/effect in one stone would likely be huge, so if you’re both happy with it – don’t fix what’s not broken!

Personally, it’s not for me.  But, if you like it thats all that matters, don’t worry about what other people think.  E-rings are a personal choice and the only opinion that should matter is your own.  That said, it’s a good way to get a larger looking stone for your money.

I have a quad center stone and side stones in my ring and I absolutely love it! I get a lot of compliments on it all the time from complete strangers. To be prefectly honest you can barely tell that it’s not one stone.

I really dislike them, but what I think or anyone else thinks doesnt matter; it’s your ring and you should do what you want.  I picked a ring that my Fiance didn’t like, but I love it.  There is no acceptable or unacceptable–jewelry is a matter of personal taste.  I found a slightly more included stone acceptable when most people wouldn’t, and just used clever pronging to hide it.  Personal taste!

I think these days, anything is “acceptable” as an e-ring.  What matters is that YOU love your e-ring.  Don’t let anyone tell you what is, and what isn’t, “acceptable.”  🙂

It doesn’t matter what other people like or don’t. They aren’t the one wearing it so it’s none of their business what is “acceptable” or not. Wear whatever you want and ignore everyone else who doesn’t like it.

I’m not fond of them, but thats my opinion. What matters is what you think of them. Do you love it or not?
