I personally like diamonds set with prongs & not enclosed in metal the way yours is currently. I think the way you have it now makes it look smaller than it would set in a prongs.

I personally would prong set that diamond- I think it will show off the stone better 🙂

I think putting it in a setting with prongs would really make that diamond stand out. I think the setting it’s in now kind of covers it’s beauty.. I vote a prong setting!

I LOVE your ring. I feel bezel settings are so much more unique. It is completely up to you, personally if your Fiance designed it I would stick with it for a while just to see if it grows on you. Bezels are great for not getting snagged on things and they protect the stone better from dings and chips. Prongs are good for showing more light through and more fire. It is 50-50 either way, but I would keep it. your ring is beautiful!

I think your ring looks really stylish!  With that being said, I myself prefer prong set.

I vote to change it. A beautiful, large stone like that just screams “solitaire” to me 🙂

Your ring is beautiful, but I would also want a prong setting rather than a bezel – I think a prong setting would really show off the stone at it’s best (but that’s just my personal taste).

Would your Fiance be hurt if you asked to change it?

allison469:  Personally I love the bezel. It gives your solitaire e ring a sense of uniqueness that the changing to a prong setting will take away. Plus, I love the sentiment that your Fiance designed it for you. I say leave it for a while. Give it time to grow on you. If you still want to change it then speak with your Fiance about getting it changed for your anniversary.

I don’t know your lifestyle- but I love bezel set stones because I am constantly doing things with my hands and prongs catch on things. I’ve never had a problem with bezel getting caught in my hair, or snagging on the sheets while I’m making the bed. Plus bezel feels more secure (in my opinion) so I’m less worried about the stone falling out.

Keep it! There is something so simple and classic about a bezel setting. Its something you dont see every day. And if your Fiance designed it himself I would leave it. He did good!

I like the bezel setting alot! And trust me your 2 carat diamond will look substantial no matter how it’s set! I think your ring looks sleek and elegant, I’d keep it as is 🙂
