    @katy13:  I don’t really get what you mean by “move my small stones” as I don’t see any small stones on your current ring. I do think the larger trillions would look more proportionate with your center stone, if that helps.

    i think smaller melee would look much more elegant.  i honestly think that large melee often looks like the wearer is trying to pass their center stones off as larger by creating more finger coverage (and you don’t need to with that gorgeous center stone!), and is ultimately kinda tacky and detracts from the center stone(s).  you have a gorgeous center stone, and I almost wonder if a .5 trillion on each side subsequently surrounded by small melee will still look like too much!  But at any rate, if you’ve seen a mock up of that and that’s the feel you’re going for I’d certianly go with the larger trillions and smaller melee rather than vice versa.  Good luck!  I love your center stone.  I’m an oval girl myself πŸ™‚

    @katy13:  So is there going to be a halo around the entire thing? Sorry if I’m being dense; I’m just trying to picture it. If I get what you’re saying, I think I like the larger trillions with the smaller melee.

    I vote for the trillions to add up to .5 carats. I’m totally biased, I have a 2.5 carat cushion with half moons on either side that total .5 and I feel like of they were any bigger they would take away from the center stone.

    I’m confused — you said you’re designing your wedding ring…but do you mean you’re designing a new setting for your e-ring?

    @katy13:  Oh, that’s beautiful! I totally get what you’re saying now. I think I still prefer the larger trillions, though. I think they create a more continuous shape with your center stone. I also think the larger melee might detract from your center stone a bit.

    Yeah, I think half moons and trillions are similar in that regard. I’ve seen my ring done with trillions and it doesn’t look THAT much different.

    I like your mock up. It’s funny that you did it, and I think it would translate really well to the real thing!
