I am the kind of girl who wants to know exactly the kind of ring she’s getting, and luckily my future fiance is the kind of guy who wants to get me exactly what I want…
The problem is…what DO I want?!
Well, after obsessing about the ring for quite some time, I have decided that Michael M’s R519 ring is THE ONE. The company is great about customizing their rings, so I have specified I want the ring to be a size 3, the band to be 1.7 mm (it is currently over 2 mm I think), and the band width to be smoothed down where it approaches the prongs so the band looks as round as possible. My diamond will be a 1.56 carat round brilliant.
However, I have been debating whether or not to modify the prongs near the top so the tips are smaller. I usually love rings that have delicate prongs and dislike super thick prongs, but I have come to terms with my prongs needing to be thicker in order to accommodate the diamonds up the sides. If the prongs tips were to be made a bit thinner, I think one or two of the top diamonds have to be removed.
This is where I need your help! These prongs are very different from most rings, but is this necessarily a bad difference? In the end, do you all think it is worth it to make the prong tips smaller? Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks!
