Step cuts…love the look and depth of them but I’d want more sparkle!!! I like the idea of a halos but they look to gaudy on my finger.

I love the idea of kite settings, where the prongs are set at the top, bottom, and sides instead of the usual “corners,” particularly on round and princess cuts, but my jeweler said that makes the prongs more prone to breaking, and I’m a klutz and not a halo girl, so. ๐Ÿ˜›

Also, since coming to the Bee I’ve started to really love sapphires of all colors and moissanite, but I already have a diamond e-ring and love it too, so I’m just looking forward to when Fiance and I have more income so I can get some nice sapphire and moissanite jewelry ๐Ÿ™‚

Always wanted a split shank, was completely set on getting one and then, nope, so wasn’t me when on my finger ๐Ÿ™  Still love them though!

I agree with PPs about coloured stone rings – love them in theory but probably wouldn’t go that route.  Also, I LOOOVE pave bands but I’ve heard too many horror stories about the stones falling out – I would not be able to deal. >.<  Also, I love cushion cuts SO much but I hate that they face up small as I do love finger coverage.  But I’ll probably get a non-wedding one someday. ๐Ÿ™‚

@ladyamalthea:  I agree about the NSEW settings!  But I prefer wedding bands that can sit flush without a notch in it so it’s a no go. >.<

@Schrodingers-Car:  I think that quads are usually set with a teensy wire cut into the edge of the stones, which holds them secure. I don’t think they’re particularly fragile. If you love them, you should get one!
