Is there something off about my ring?

First of all, your ring is gorgeous!

I will say though that I googled 3-stone EC rings to see if I noticed anything different and I think your band is a little thicker than you typically see.  

But, with that said, I personally love a thicker band.  You can have your jeweler thin it out though without having to have a new ring made

Are the prongs holding the side stones facing the same way as the prongs on the main stone? Maybe they’re not or uneven and that’s contributing to what you’re seeing?

The proportions look good to me, but of course that goes down to personal preference

I think a super close-up picture with better lighting might be needed

Congrats! I agree with you that something seems off. It’s a beautiful ring, but I think it might be the band that’s throwing you off. It’s almost the same thickness as the side stones.

I also have an emerald cut engagement ring although mine has tapered baguettes. I think your side stones are perfectly fine proportionally. Maybe just see if the band can be thinned out?

Gee, it must just be me, but I think it’s gorgeous, and also that it has such a big presence that it actually needs the wider band that it has.  Gorgeous stones for sure though.

Hm, yeah I actually do see the little gap on the right side.

Overall I think your ring is really lovely, I like the size on your finger, the three stone concept, the emerald cuts, but there do seem to be some aspects in the execution that should have been done better by the jeweler

I think it’s beautiful. I love a wider band as it feels more balanced to me. Is the center stone a little crooked though? 
Anyway, it’s gorgeous on your pretty hand!!

My favourite cut is the princess cut and I used to hate EC but oh my it is really growing on me, the stones are beautiful..but I must say the band is very thick for my taste

The center stone is not set perfectly straight, it tilts VERY slightly to the left at the top. As far as the prongs being off, I don’t really think that is noticable or a big deal. 

I have to say, I think your ring is gorgeous and I love the band and the size of the stones, i think it looks so pretty on your hand. I love your ring and don’t think there is anything “off” about it. If I were to ask you to scrutinize my ring, you’d probably notice a few inclusions, but I don’t mind. 

Have you been staring at your ring too long or did someone say something to you?
