I inherited a ring and I am dying to wear the diamond all the time, so I want to get it set ASAP.
This is the ring
My FI absolutely hates the setting it has because it’s so OTT for him (and for me).
I am torn between three styles of settings (probably the most popular settings). I decided I do like a little bling so if I got the solitaire I’d jazz it up with an eternity band.
1: Halo – my FI least favourite style.
2: Pavé band
3: Classic solitaire

I think number two with that stone would be lovely!

I do love a classic solitaire. Second favorite would be the pave.

Congrats! All stunning rings. I voted solitaire, but I may be partial because I love my ring.

That stone looks like it could stand on its own…. a classic solitaire might be perfect

I would choose halo, but a cushion halo instead of a round one. 🙂

LOL deciding is even more difficult than I thought!
@GelaMac: The stone is around a carat, maybe a little bit bigger.

@Happy2bMrs: I love cushions! But the diamond available to me is round

What will happen to the additional diamonds in the band if you only set the center stone? Like the #3 picture… Are all of those diamonds set into multiple bands that can be pulled apart/seperated? Are they sautered? I think if you have all those additional diamonds left to set then the halo is your best option, but if those additional diamonds can be seperated – then I don’t know….

I’d go with pave – you get the look of a solitaire while having a little bling! Gorgeous diamond!!

I voted for the pave band, but I’m biased as I have one myself. I love pave because it’s a very classic style that offers a bit of bling. Here are pictures of my ring as both (The pave setting is current. It’s hard to capture the detail of the setting in pictures (it has diamonds on the shank and prongs as well) but it’s still a good reference.
