I cannot believe I am questioning my setting choice again! Just when I thought I had it all figured out.
I am resetting my diamond. It is currently in a 3 stone ring and while it’s nice, I want something else. I was specifically looking for a halo.
I narrowed it down to 2 settings and decided on this one, partially because the price of the other one jumped up $500! I thought I loved it but now I think it’s too much bling. My daughter doesn’t like it at all. It’s like a halo, but the sides swirl around it.
This is a pic from my cell phone. The center diamond here is 1ct but mine would be slightly bigger at 1.36ct. Is it too much?

Personally, I think there is a thing as too much bling, but it depends on the lady. I am not “blingy” in every day life, in style, jewelry, in my car, or my room decor, so it would seem out of place on me, a big rock on my finger. At the same time, even if it fit with my style, I think there is too much bling if 1) you can’t afford it without depleting savings or going into debt or 2) you do it just to out-do your friends, your neighbors, your family, etc. If you’re not sure this ring is for you, I would keep looking.

@NurseMarriedToAFarmer: I can’t see it either :(.
@country chic: If its so blingy that you would not want to wear it on a daily basis because it is too loud/fancy then its too blingy. I’m a solitaire girl though, so most things seem to blingy to me.

If you can bend your finger and it doesn’t cover your knuckles (*AHEM* Kim Kardashian) it isn’t too much bling. 😉

I like it a lot! I can’t see the details very well, but it does not look “too blingy” to me, and there’s really no such thing anyway. In my way of thinking, rings can be gaudy or ugly, but not “too sparkly”.

Yeah! My photo showed up!
I am generally a very low key person. The only rings I wear are my wedding rings and I usually wear them on separate hands for comfort. The set above I could wear both rings together because they are very thin.
I don’t dress up a lot. I work at a hospital so I usually wear scrubs to work.
I like to wear my e-ring/wedding band so I’m not looking for a “cocktail” type ring to pull out on special occassions. I guess my main concern is I am so not used to this much sparkle! I know I should not get this set just because the price is good…as I said I do want a halo and thought this one was unique.
Thanks for the opinions!

I love some good sparklies myself, but I think for a ring you wear everyday it might be a bit too flashy. Thats just my personal taste though. If you really do love it then go for it and who cares what other people say, but if you have to question it my thought would be its not THE ring.
I could also see it maybe being difficult to match a wedding band flush next to it because of the swirl detail. Is a wedding band sitting flush something that is important to you?
Edit: just saw that it is a set already so nevermind on that last part 🙂

I think it’s beautiful! Not too much bling at all.

@Zelkara: The straight band underneath the swirl is actually the wedding band. The jeweler will only sell me the set and not just the e-ring setting.
