I switched my diamond over from my solitaire setting to a halo setting. I think the halo would look nice as a plain shank but I’m not sure how it would look paired with the wrap. Will the wrap be your wedding band??

I actually adore your rings as they are! A plain shank halo could be nice too but I’m not sure about it with that same enhancer. Is getting a second enhancer to change it up an option? I’ll show you a picture of another bee’s rings, hopefully she doesn’t mind me sharing! One or two of these curved bands could be beautiful with your solitaire sometimes!

legallybrunette :  Oh ok, wrap as a wedding band makes sense! You could wear them on different hands but I’m not sure how the wrap would look on its own. If you do decide to go with a reset, you might have to look at new bands if it doesn’t go with your wrap. 

I reset my ring at our 3 yr wedding anniversary. I did bring up the subject of a reset earlier than that but Darling Husband would say “Maybe at our 5 yr anniversary.” I guess he changed his mind and made it my bday and wedding anniversary gift earlier. We went back to the store where he purchased my ring and looked at new settings. Once we picked one out, it took 2 weeks for my ring to come back. Now that we’ve done it, he is much happier with my reset and loves my ring!

I’m sorry but I don’t like the wrap with the halo that is just overkill. I think you should wait to upgrade and keep it a solitaire OR set the diamond in a halo using the current diamond plus stones from the wrap.

I think you have enough there from the 1 carat wrap for another tiny .50 band too.

legallybrunette :  I don’t know if it’s just me, but doesn’t it seem kind of stupid to propose with a ring that he plans on upgrading in April? That barely gives you any time with your ring and he’s already changing it  

if you Have your heart set on a halo then get a halo, as you’ll probably always wish your solitaire had a halo of you don’t. You could use the stone you have and just put a halo around it. I would keep the stone he proposed with and just add a halo to it. 

Im not s huge fan of the wrap – it overpowers the e-ring. It’s gorgeous – but you don’t see much of the solitaire. I actually like it better with the halo
