@tbenjamin4884:  YAAAAAAAY!!! I’m so excited to see your post for your new wide setting. I LOVE it. It looks amazing with your new diamond, and it looks beautiful on your hand. I think I love it even more than your original one. And how special to have the setting from your mom. What a wonderful gift. Congratulations on your new beauty!!


And OMGosh!! Your mom’s new setting is STUNNING. I love it. It looks beautiful on her.

And here’s my “wider” ring. It’s my 16th anniversary ring. I have a .90 ct in it right now. I’ve always thought I would love to put a larger stone, maybe around a 1.5 or so, in it. But at the same time, I really love the stone that’s already in here. And then, I fell down the custom ring wormhole. So … LOL

I’m so glad you updated your post! I remember you posted a bit ago and I was hoping you would update. I totally love wide set ring settings! And your is super beautiful!  I’m so glad you love it!  I understand that feeling!  

I had another ring ( original ring) which I like and it’s lovely; old vintage style, yellow gold halo with European cut diamond. Then I decided to finally do what I have been wanting to do and I had my new chunky wide ring made.

 It has an old mine cut stones and I just. Love. It. So.much!  Its definitely not the style right now but that also makes me love it even more. I also don’t think it’s a style to ever go out of style. It’s my style!   It’s simple, bold and totally me.  I love the two tone ( this is my original wedding band that I kept and I had this ring made To fit it) which inspired the yellow gold bezels.  I also love how the yellow gold bezel peaks through and how flat the ring is. The white gold has a German finish ( scratchy and matte) to offset the high shine of the yellow gold.  I feel so happy when I think of it. Finally I love my ring. I liked the other, but I love this one. ❤️❤️❤️😂😂

Two pics below. One to show the face up view and the other to show how the bezel comes through showing the yellow gold and how flush the ring is. I kept telling my jeweler ” no lower, please make the setting lower. Like as low as possible” haha. The diamond is literally at my finger and exactly what I wanted.

I love seeing your new ring! Absolutely gorgeous again and you deserve it!  Plus I never tire of seeing wide settings! My heart! ❤️

How fantastic that you got to the point of making your dream ring come true. It’s beautiful.  I’m a sucker for thick bands cause of my long fingers….And as far as pawn shops go I just bought a pear diamond for a project I have going on right now ,so I share your excitement when our projects come together and we can finally see the finished product on our hands..wear you beauty in good health.
