  • poll: Which new setting should I pick?

    Cushion halo- you love them, love the finger coverage and are used to them!

    Three stone ring- A lovely sentiment to your three kids and it'll give nice finger coverage!

    Diamond sidestone setting- it's gorgeous! You'll find a wedding band to go with it!

    Buy the same halo you have right now but in your new finger size.

    I actually like your current set or the third ring (halo) the best…I would reset the set you have…I am boring! lol

    I think you should replicate what you currently have in correct size, maybe leave a small plain metal area underneath enabling future resizing.

    Your current set is so nice and there’s meaning behind having worn that so I don’t think you should radically change to a whole other looking set.

    Unless you never really liked the original set and want to take the opportunity to change it.

    I’d save my money on a new setting and take my chances with resizing my current band before spending more to buy anything new.  If you can’t resize it, it’s just going to sit there and be useless anyways?

    I also vote to take a chance with the resize. That or get those sizing beads put on the inside of your ring.

    I LOVE the set you already have, couldn’t you just get the sizing beads on the inside of your ring?

    I went from a three stone to a halo; the halo offers more vertical coverage while the three stone is more horizontal coverage, at least in my case. Something to think about…

    Your set is beautiful! And congrats on the weight loss!

    carrotcake2003 :  You can always contact David Klass, he will make you new rings and can use your diamonds you have now in the settings. That will save a lot. He also can trade in the gold or may be able to use the gold from your settings. I would maybe try that first, instead of spending money on a brand new setting. You may be able to save a lot. Your rings are really pretty that you have now.

    I honestly think halos are a bit of a fad and they will look dated in the coming years.  I love the diamond side stone and the three stone the best.  JMHO

    I love the three stone with bead-set stones in a channel band. I think it is classy and you won’t loose finger coverage, but you will loose the little sparkles without the pave. If you go this direction, just tell them ‘delicate claw prongs’ (bold, italics and underline), they look pretty chunky.

    But, taking the position that you want to re-set and have to use BN, there are a few settings that may blend some of your ideas — yet keep the finger coverage. Gives you several of your elements in one ring. 

    In any of these, make sure they will give you the ability to size up or down by 2 sizes (e.g., from a 6 to a 7).

    This has some of the same elements of your present ring, but changes the halo shape and shank. It will give you great coverage, but a new look.

    Three stone, but keeps the halo.

    If you have 3 kids, you need a 5-stone, right? You and your husband count too… No, what I like about this setting is that the view is nice from every angle (except tell them no pave under the gallery if you will wear a band, that is silly to subject the diamonds and your ring to that kind of abuse).

    I love the three stone! I have a pave set that is three sided diamonds- kinda like ring 2 you posted but rounded and got it sized up. It was a nightmare. I did have stones fall out and was also recommended to not size up or down too much with pave style. Not it could be sized back down with weight lost, but I don’t plan to try it.

    I voted for the cushion halo. Because that’s what I have, similar specs as you too. RB center stone, size 6, so obvi choice! I do also really like your original set. I looked at round halos as well but they didnt really look good on my finger like it does on yours. Will you miss the round? The cushion with a RB is a little more modern of a look than round-round. I just wouldnt want you to regret the decision later. IMG_5955
