the1runningwife :  a pave band as thin as the inspo photo you posted will be extremely delicate even for every day wear – just something to consider. I’m personally a sucker for a plain band solitaire – mine is 1.9 mm on a size 5 finger with a 1 carat oval diamond, similar to the last photo you posted.

I would avoid the thin pave band so you could feel comfortable wearing it every day. Rounds and ovals are both lovely. Just looking at this site, it feels like ovals are becoming the leading fancy cut over princess-cuts. Since it sounds like your ready for something fresh, maybe the oval?

The thing I love about an oval is that it elongates your fingers and looks very feminine. My band is extremely thin at 1.4mm. I haven’t had ANY issues with how thin it is. It also truly makes the center diamond the main focal point. I hope this helps! 

also, my finger is a size 4:)

Have you thought about keeping the band the same look/size but having an oval center stone? I think that would look best!

20190504_113850 the1runningwife :  I love oval rings – but both options are gorgeous. I have wanted a moonstone engagement ring for as long as I have had dreams about getting married – my guy came through! You designed my ring – moonstone and diamonds (promised they were cruelty-free, which was a very important issue for me!)

I think your stone in a new setting would look amazing! I also debated oval vs round and ultimately went with round because it’s a classic and my fiancé liked it better than oval.

Your set is beautiful, is there a reason you are trying to change it? I think you should try on some rings with the same size round to decide if you really want to change your stone or if you just want to change your setting.
