I am switching up my rose gold solitaire e-ring setting. For real this time, as in, the original ring has already been sent out.
I WAS going to switch to a plain shank floating halo but I’m getting cold feet! Should I go for the tried and true knife edge setting instead? I’ve had a sterling silver and cubic zirconia Tiffany-inspired knife edge solitaire that I’ve worn occasionally for years because I like the simplicity of the solitaire. On the other hand, the halo might be a fun change–hello, finger coverage!– but I don’t know if it’s “me”. Please help me decide within the next 48 hours! Thank you!

I love the knife edge but I also liked your original setting. I personally am not a huge halo fan but if you sent it off to get a halo usually your first instinct is right!!!!

With your stone you definitely don’t need to be worrying about finger coverage bee! I like the halo you posted in theory, but I think it would be too much and take away from the stone. To be honest I actually prefer your original setting most.

I don’t think you need the halo either! But I love your rose gold so much!! I’m also biased because I have rose gold, what made you want a change?

I prefer the original setting. A halo would be too much with your center stone. If I had to pick one of the two, I’d go with the knife edge solitaire.

Thank you for the input, bees! Y’all sound like my husband who is team original setting. It’s not for sentimental reasons, he just prefers the look.
I love my rose gold soli but it is a hair too tight and in order to resize, they need to remove the head. I have been thinking about resetting for years as I love rose, white and yellow metals.
I decided to go with the knife edge solitaire. I’ve been dying to see my stone in a white gold/platinum setting for ages and can’t wait to finally do so! The best part is if I don’t love it and miss the original, the vendor will switch it back for free.
