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!

lilsweetie:  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.

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.

lilsweetie:  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.

lilsweetie:  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?
