    I love the sparkle of diamonds on the band, but I am leaning towards a solitaire. I tried to think practically about how I am… I put on hand cream 50x a day, I am quite clumsy, etc… so I am not sure side stones are such a good idea. I don’t want them gunked up or falling out. Also, tastes change… if I go w. something simple and classic then it’ll never go out of fashion. Just something to consider. I am in the same quandry!

    I suppose emeralds (and emerald cut stones) sparkle less than some other cuts so maybe side stones are a good idea.. hmm.. lol

    Side stones would look great! My band is pave for a little extra sparkle- that would also look fabulous with your stone!

    Thats a gorgeous stone. I’d go with side stones rather than pave set band. If you put hand cream on a lot be sure to take the ring off! Emeralds are quite soft compared to sapphires and rubies and it would be sad to damage it 🙂

    I vote side stones to really showcase the beauty of the stone.

    When you first said emerald, I assumed you meant emerald cut diamond.  Now that I see you mean a real emerald stone, I would definitely go with something that had diamond side stones.

    That is a gorgeous emerald!! I would pick the diamonds on the side, the white and green contrast would be lovely.

    @Miss Circe:  I think getting the plain band for the engagement ring and then adding an eternity band with stones will look wonderful.  THe emerald it so pretty that you don’t want to have too much going on that distracts from its beauty!
