I like you old one better to be honest…  This one is ok though, but the more delicate one looks like it fits you better.  It looks like a different height to your wedding band too.  Do you mind that?

I think it matches your wedding band perfectly. I like it MUCH better than the first setting. But what matters is that YOU like it!

I agree with Jcent! The new setting isn’t bad, but it doesn’t suit your wedding ring or your finger as well as your original in my opinion. Both are pretty, so it’s down to what you love.

I personally think it’s beautiful, but definitely don’t keep it if you’re not 100% happy with it! πŸ™‚

I have to agree with everyone who likes the old setting better.  They’re both beautiful but I personally think the old setting suits your finger much better

Why did you order a new setting? The old one looks fine!

You will get use to it. I remember wondering how I would get used to my wedidng band and engagement ring at the same time, now I take the band off and I can’t imagine how I just wore the engagement ring πŸ™‚

I like the older one better I think. But the new one is pretty as well, just more chunky as you have pointed out.

I wouldn’t call it huge and bulky, but it definitely isn’t dainty. I think it’s pretty but what really matters is how you feel about it.

If dainty is what you really had your heart set on, then go with your first instinct. If it drives you nuts now, it will really drive you nuts 20 years from now. My advice would be to send it back and keep hunting until you find something that makes your heart go pitter patter and makes you not want to take it off, ever ever ever…


Good luck with whatever you decide!
