I like the first setting the best out of the ones that you posted. Previously I have always liked a thinker chunkier shank/band on erings but after spending time lurking around the bee I have come to really like the thinner bands. Can’t wait to see your ring after the reset!

It’s SO pretty – you should definitely keep it as is and wear it on your right hand! Maybe getting it sized for your middle finger will make it feel more proportionate to your new set. Good luck!

The first one! I think the soft swooping side view is gorgeous. Bonus the 6 prongs will round off your diamond nicely. I I can’t wait to see the finished results!

I vote for option 1! What made you decided to reset rather then to create a alternate with the Amora gem ?

I like your current setting better, but between the two new options I like the first one.

Number one! I like that the best.

I prefer the second, more classic setting. I think it’s timeless and does not compete in any way with your beautiful stone. I also personally prefer a narrow setting for looks and comfort and don’t think you will be sorry.

MoniePennie: I am still considering getting the Amora Gem for my old setting so I can have 2 rings, but I want my diamond to really POP so I think it would look better in a new thinner setting. Good memory, girl! I think I will reset it first then decide whether to sell the old setting or keep it or get an Amora gem for it.
Robyn0214: Olivepepper: Really? You girls like my current setting better? Do you think either of those thinner settings would make my stone stand out more and look larger than my current one?
Thanks for the pic! That really helps. My current band is 3.6mm and the new ones are 2.5mm
That is really food for thought. I never thought of thin settings being a style thing before. Are you starting to see thicker bands lately? You work in the jewelry industry if i recall correctly right?
Thanks girl! It’s comforting to know you have seen this setting on others online and it looks good!
Love your logic – go big or go home. I am a very simple person in style – wearing black, whites, neutral colors for example. So a more ornate ring is not something I am used to wearing, but I LOVE how the prongs look on this one, so maybe I should step out of my comfort zone and try it out. Worst thing would be a reset if it doesn’t suit me, right? The classic 6 prong would be a safe choice, but maybe I should take a risk…

There is definitely less micropave requested in the last year. 😉 Plain solitiares are really popular again, and 2mm seems to be the thinnest. 2.5 and 3mm is becoming more standard again. I think for durability and ease of wear, people are steering clear of the uber delicate.

I think the first one by MM is the better choice, it has a classic feel, but with a twist enough to keep it interesting. I think that the other one that mimics a tiffany, though pretty, is fairly plain. 20 yrs from now you might be itchng to change it again. I had a tiffany set ring when I was in university, and a year later, I was wanting to get it changed to another setting.

Was your Tiffany setting the same as this 6 prong? What did you change it to? Have you changed your ERing since that? Thanks for your input.

It was just a 6 prong white gold prongs, yellow gold shank. I got rid of that ring a long time ago, but I will say, that after about a year of wearing it, I was bored with the setting and was looking at something more unique. It wasn’t an ering, but it was a ring that I bought and wore regularly.

It is very hard to pick one because I like all tree settings. Your current setting is also very nice.
I like the first new one because it is unique but the second is such a timeless setting that it would be a great one also.
Why don’t you let DH decide to get some sort of surprise element?

I like the first solitaire setting. It’s so pretty!
