    wow – those are all very different settings!   I like the fishtail prongs, personally. But I think that’s because I’m partial to a delicate band/solitaire.

    I’m in love with #3. It has such an enchanted ring vibe, I love it.

    Funny – I live near Knox Jewelers – they do excellent work. 

    Anyway, your ring selections are all so different… have you seen any of them (or similar styles) in person?

    I voted for Knox’s split shank but would only want it if it included the filigree! Perhaps, if you’re very fearful of tiring of the design, you should go extremely simple with either the plain semi-bezel or the fishtail. Both would play well with any and every band that the future might bring.

    1 looks like an eye

    4 looks like tiny hands are gripping the stone

    I am partial to the bypass and shallow curves because I am also getting a bypass!

    I strongly recommend that you try on a bunch of different rings in person to get a feel for what you like. I always thought I wanted a 3 stone but I was wowed by the design I am getting. 

    That stone is incredible by the way. I personally would avoid bezel because it would hide a lot of the stone. You may have the same issue with bypass.

    These are all beautiful in different ways. The last one keeps drawing my eye but if you are planning to also wear a wedding band, you should keep that in mind as well. Only #s 2, 4, and 6 look like they would be pretty easy to pair an additional band with. All things considered, I’d say the leaf cathedral would be my vote of these here- you will be able to pair a band with it, it will sit up in a way that shows off your stone and the silver (or gold?) leaves next to your green stone will be striking.

    I do think you should also try things on, though. I was surprised to find that what I liked to wear as a regular, every day ring was not at all what I wanted or preferred for my engagement ring(s).

    How about something like this the green stone pops and looks like it’s floating 

    Also it’s doesn’t have to be that wide

    I would have said number three if you are keeping the filigree, but since you aren’t then my vote would be for number 6. I think the subtle nature design would go well with the green stone yet keep the classic Simplicity of a traditional solitaire that keeps it solidly in the engagement ring vs. Fashion ring Genre.

    I like the fishtail prongs! 

    And I really like the idea of having your SO decide!
