I have a solitaire with a tapered band and I absolutely love it! Mine doesn’t have a super distinct taper, but it is a gradual one. Hope these help πŸ™‚

I took a photo so you could see how it tapers.

This is with my wedding band:

SwedishBee:  I initially thought I would post in here … then decided not to because I was afraid my pics might not be helpful. The taper in my solitaire is very gradual and subtle, so I wasn’t sure it was what you were looking to see. Also, I know there are many others on the board who have rings that fit your request so much better.

But … seeing as how you haven’t yet gotten a lot of replies, I once again changed my mind and decided to post. So, I hope my picture can help at least a little.

My solitaire isn’t a white/clear gemstone. It’s a London Blue Topaz. It’s in a basket setting, but the basket comes up into 4 prongs that loop over the stone. If I didn’t have it in a basket, I probably would have preferred 6 prongs. Sometimes, I still think I should have asked for 6 prongs … but that might have been too much metal looping over my stone. Anyhow …

The taper in my band is very subtle and gradual. And it is not a huge taper. The band is 2.5mm and it tapers down to 2mm on either side of the stone. I can see it in person, but I’m not sure how much it really shows up in pictures.

I don’t have a tapered solitaire, but I did a quick search and I think I’m partial to the 6-prong, it makes the diamond look more round. But, if you kind of like the squaring off, almost cushion effect, 4-prong is the way to go. Either way, you can’t go wrong with a classic solitaire!

My previous e-ring was a solitaire with a tapered band!

SwedishBee:  The stone is 0.59 ct and the band of the e-ring was 3mm at its widest. My wedding band is a little less than 2mm.

zeus:  I know this is unrelated but I think I’ve found my ring twin (except mine doesn’t taper)!

Good luck with your ring, SwedishBee! πŸ™‚

My ring tapers with a little twist, and it’s one of my favorite features:
