    I like #1.  I don’t think people really look at the sides that much.

    i used to be really obsessed with the side of the ring too… and then my Fiance got me a ring that has a totally plain side, and i really love it. i like how simple it looks, and i almost always only see the top of the ring anyways.

    however, if you really place the most importance on the side view, i’d probably go with option 2 or 3.

    my ring is very similar to option 1 and i love it. 🙂

    ETA: the prong head on the 3rd choice should be veryyy easy to change to 6 prong. not so sure about the verragio since their designs are so complex.

    Something to consider about having details on the side is when you add your wedding band(s)there will be issues with rubbing wearing down the details, especially since you want the band to sit flush witn your ering.

    Option 3 is the winner in my eyes! Love how the centre stone stands out from the band. Option 1 is second and option 2 third.

    tbh they’re all beautiful though, which one felt best when on your finger?

    I’m a sucker for the profile since most of my ring’s character is there. During the day, the view I have of my ring is the one from the side since I have a highly desk oriented job.

    @HeartsandSparkles:  i like the first one the best. 

    no one is going to see the sides and you said that you wanted your band to fit tightly beside the ering.  if you have detail and pave on the sides, your band will rub on it and may cause damage (rub off the detail or loosen stones).  not to mention, your band will have to have detail/diamonds on the sides as well to keep the look uniform.   you won’t even see the side of your ering with the band on.

    I voted for the first one because even though it has plain sides, that will be covered up by the wedding band anyway.
