What size stone will you be getting? Tapered settings tend the help the center stone look larger and pop more, in my opinion. I really love tapered settings not just for that reason, but because they are different and a little less “plain” (for lack of a better word) than a traditional setting with the same width all the way.

Io I have a cathedral setting. I love high settings, so it’s perfect for me. when I look at it from the side, I don’t like it as much because I feel like it dwarfs the diamond, but from the back or front, I think the cathedral looks beautiful. The setting holds a 1.21 ct cushion.

Yipeebee:  i have a 1.25 ct cushion cut diamond. Ring size is a 6. I love my setting bc its very low. I dont like a high setting. I know it gives the illusion that its bigger, but making it loom bigger was not important to me, and on top of that its easy to get snagged on things which can cause the setting to get loose and possiblt the stone will fall out.

Yipeebee:  I have a 2mm band- I think.  I love how it showcases the ring and I’m partial to thin bands.  I would have gotten a thinner band if I could, but this setting was ‘free’ so I couldn’t pass up the deal.  Oh, and it sits realllllly high so ensure you’re okay with that.  I don’t snag or it hit but I’ve only had it for 2 weeks so we’ll see.  Haha.
