I like the first setting. I think the tapering is really flattering and I didn’t really take note of the gap until I read the post.

I prefer the bottom setting. They’re both lovely though! Can’t wait to see the finished product!

lynn18 :  The top one looks a bit more delicate/feminine to me and I always associate those qualities with ovals, so that’s my vote. You can’t see the gap from these pictures, I had to look for it after reading your post.

I’m voting for #1 as well. I really like the tapering and the split shank. It’s hard to know how much gap you will have with an oval, though. Is the setting high enough that your stone will sit above your wedding band?

Whatever the result, I think it’s gorgeous.

lynn18 :  I LOVE the first one (if I didn’t get the Lotus flower ring, I would have done the reverie). Keep in mind though that the gap will be bigger with an oval than with a round. Personally, I like gaps so it doesn’t bother me. But if you’re gap-averse it’s something to keep in mind.

The top one! A split shank with double prongs is just dreamy with an oval. Congrats!

lynn18 :   

My vote would be for the first setting, because the gap is minor and it looks very feminine.  Keep in mind though that an oval will create more of a gap unless it’s set high. I have an oval solitaire which was put into two different settings and they both created too large of a gap for a band, so I’m ordering another setting which will sit higher and not have a basket.
